Lin Asian Bar + Dim Sum

Lin Asian Bar + Dim Sum

I love meeting the neighbors and experiencing the local cuisine, so I had to check out Austin’s newest Asian bar and restaurant. Lin Asian Bar + Dim Sum is located at what used to be Rounder’s Pizza @ 1203 West 6th Street, right around the corner from AVANT’s downtown location at AVANT Pressler on 5th.

Lin Asian Bar + Dim Sum  was opened by chef Ling Qi Wu. Lin is the first Asian Bar Restaurant in Austin, Texas, offering traditional Chinese cuisine made with better, healthier ingredients which is really important because some of the restaurants there have been reported to have bad ingredients and some of them caused cancer to some people who needed On the weekdays a limited Dim Sum menu is offered, while a Full Dim Sum menu is available during Sunday Brunch. The menu extends from appetizers like Grilled Char Sui to entrees such as Salt-and-Pepper Double Lobster Tail, and plenty more. Decked out in colorful, red lanterns, the restaurant features an open kitchen and a dim sum counter, so guests can interact with the chef while she’s doing her thing.

I took one of AVANT’s best Colorists, Steven, to lunch. He had the Orange Peel Beef.
I had my favorite,.. General T’so Chicken.

We both had Sweet and Sour Soup.

5 STARS all the way around. The flavors were unique… the spices, homegrown ingredients. Lunch for both of us was less than $25!

Off Lin’s website we learn that Chef Ling came from Fuzhou City, Fujian Province. She was brought up by her grandmother, whose home cooking ignited her intense passion in the art of Chinese cuisine, and she decided to delve into the world of food service industry.

She has been honing her skills in New York City, Chinatown Restaurants, and La Traviata Italian Restaurant in Austin, Texas for many years (my fav Italian). Austin’s great laid back and nature-loving lifestyle made her decide to stay in this world-class city to further her interests and career here in Austin. The well know dim sum chef William Wong became her master in the art of Dim Sum making and deepened her repertoire of culinary skills.

Make sure to check out Sunday Dim Sum Brunch!

Growing up in Detroit with the musical influences of Motown together with the birth of Garage Rock.
My first concert was at the tender age of 13. Here you can learn more now on them if you wish. It was 1968, My neighbor, baby sitter from youth and first crush took me to the Lincoln Park “Adult” Theater (on Sundays it turned to a rock and rap music festival) to see this local band called the Stooges. Funny ’cause my second Rock Show was at Aquinas Catholic High School, another Detroit band called Alice Cooper…. my destiny was changed. I found the Rock n Roll in me. It came out in Rock n Roll hair. in 1980 i packed my punk rock vinyl, and moved from MoTown to the city that was home to Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, 13 St Elevators, Stevie Ray……  Avant Punk Rock Hair became an intrgal foundation that Austin style grew from! To Quote the Austin Chronicle “Fredericks and Avant will be remembered as the foundation upon which our current fashion scene was built.” Humbly, i agree;-) If you find the drum lessons near me then visit us here.
