Located in the Museum District, this place was originally opened in 1988 by Kam Cheung. In 1993, he sold it to the head chef, Mr. Ho, whose family has owned it ever since. The atmosphere is refined, and the service is always accommodating, speedy and consistent. Kam's is known for its homemade dumplings, either steamed or pan-fried, which come in pork, chicken, vegetable or seafood varieties. While American Chinese dishes like sesame chicken and cashew shrimp abound on the menu, there's also an excellent Indonesian chicken dish with coconut milk, as well as a Vietnamese bo luc lac, chunks of filet served with onions and watercress.
