The dim sum served daily at Grand Lake, out in the middle of Nowheresville west of Jog Road in West Palm Beach, is worth carpooling up for. There's a list of 64 specialties under $10 and a half dozen others, such as whole roast duck, beef chow fun with black bean sauce, and pork pan-fried noodles, that squeeze in under $20. Owners Chloe and Erik Poon are from New York, which explains why they've been able to win over the pickiest of local Chinese and American foodies. Their steamed-shrimp dumplings are practically dewy, stuffed with big chunks of fresh, salty shellfish. Pan-fried pork dumplings are crisply browned on the outside, juicy within. A delectably gluey turnip cake emanates subtle, sulfuric whiffs of that earthy root. Everything is beautifully seasoned and right out of the steamer or frying pan - nothing is left to sit under hot lights.
