Black Pearl Asian Cuisine in Homewood isn't hard to miss. Drive past the strip malls on State Farm Parkway and you'll find the Chinese restaurant holding court, the only building in the parking lot.
Chinese cuisine isn't particularly hard to find in the Birmingham area, and Black Pearl itself is pretty well known. This Homewood location is one of two restaurants -- the other location is in Colonnade Parkway on Highway 280. But what sets this Homewood restaurant apart from its 280 neighbor is the selection of dim sum, a style of Chinese cuisine served as small plates.
