Purple Dot Cafe
Craving dim sum long after many of the International District’s cars have been rolled away? You’re in luck because Jason Xie’s Purple Dot Cafe serves up Chinese brunch time favorites until 2 a.m. (Late night partiers can even stop by until 3:30 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays to sober up.) Jason and his family took over this Chinatown eatery from the original owners in 2013. Menu favorites include dim sum stars like sticky rice, prawn dumplings, spicy chicken feet, and egg tarts right along with crab fried rice, steak, congee and baked spaghetti.
Fun fact: While the Xie’s have renovated the space three times, its distinctive purple walls have been preserved.
