Tru Gourmet serves beautiful, creative, and organic dim sum at the Metreon's daily Island Earth Farmer's Market, including vegan potstickers and dumplings in varieties like wild butterfish and Dungeness crab. While certainly pricier than many dim sum places around town, TG's baked BBQ pork bun ($2.50 each, or three for $6; pictured above with Dungeness dumplings) is one of the tastiest and most substantial we've ever sampled. The wheat flour bun contains a generous filling of lean Prather Ranch pork. Warning: Three of these fancy meat donuts might just send you into a deep and delicious food coma.
