Anytime dim sum - The Boston Globe
Lovers of the tender, chewy snacks served at Chinese dim sum - dumplings, buns, and daikon cake - have been raving about Gitlo's since it opened late last year. The Allston shop serves dim sum made to order day and night, and it's fantastic stuff. You'll leave thinking you could live on the shrimp dumplings ($3.25) - fat nuggets that stop just short of being too cute to eat. But you could also make room in your all-dim sum diet for the homemade stir-fried glass noodles and countless other items. Owner Shi Liu (a.k.a. Gitlo), a former cab driver, knew there'd be an audience for all-hours dim sum when he opened the shop with his cousin. As a cabbie, Liu could never get dim sum when he wanted it. He was right - if your dim sum cravings hit at inconvenient times, head to Allston.
