The Pearl Restaurant
The Grand Ballroom, awaiting your special event
The owner of the Pearl, has longed to bring the feel of home to the Dallas Ft. Worth area. His vision is that guests will come into his restaurant and experience the smells and flavors of his country of birth. The hope is that they will learn about the diligence it takes to create dim sum fresh each day so that his patrons can experience the joys of what was at one time only enjoyed by Emperors and Kings.
The unique culinary art of Dim Sum originated in China many hundreds of years ago. According to some sources the first Dim Sum was made 2,500 years ago, as evident in the poetry and music of that time.
Originally it was an exclusive luxury made for the Emperor and his family, but it was also enjoyed by the wealthy. Eventually it was also served in tea houses, particularly the busy tea houses along the famous Silk Road.
