The Kojo Nnamdi Show did an hour on local Chinese restaurants, and Washingtonian critic Todd Kliman raved about Red Pearl in Columbia.
Click on the show page and click "Listen" to hear the discussion, which highlights Chinese restaurants and how to order special items. Kliman posted a recent chat where he talks about Red Pearl -- talking up an off-menu "salt-and-pepper" lobster dish, but disappointed by the weekend dim sum. (Listen around the 35-minute point of the Kojo show for more on the lobster.)
Kliman said that he has a longer piece coming in the March edition. Or check out my raves about the Red Pearl dim sum, which has always been top-notch to me.
Thanks for Lisa for the heads-up.
