The dim sum jockeys who patrol China Garden with their carts and filled plates want you to gorge immediately, but pace yourself: The visits will not cease, and the goodness of the county's best dim sum will not end. Cha shu bao, filled with sweet red barbecued pork, is a perfect foil for the steaming cup of sharp oolong tea. As is the steamed chicken bun, a light, chewy thing filled with ground chicken meat, ginger and herbs.
