Dim Sum in LA


#41

Portuguese eggs tart still fucking great from China Red if I grab then to go ???


#42

Yeah, but they’re best eaten when hot.


#43

I’m definitely eat them right as I’m leaving the fucking joint.


#44

Must not have tried the house special seafood dumplings or the sea cucumber soup dumplings. Those things are as delicate as can get! :wink:


#45

Actually I DID order them.

I don’t know… Maybe Sergio wasn’t cooking that day. Those dishes just did not hit a home run with me. Not even a walk-off single.


#46

Whaaat?! I love them because they’re so juicy every time and so different from what every other dim sum place in town is serving.

I guess our sushi preferences align but not our dim sum preferences! :wink:


#47

Who’s Sergio ???


#48

are the two dumplings you referred to pork and red meat free ?

Thanks man.


#49

you could stick them under your arm on the drive home.


#50

Lamar Odom could say that more clearly than kevin

Cambridge still had a section on “Oriental Studies” when I was there in 1999. :frowning: I think immigrants are less sensitive to the word “Oriental” than are Asian-Americans…

On a food-related note, I think I’m going to try China Red for my next dim sum outing, since a good friend who lives dim sum lives relatively close by. What else do you recommend beside the egg tart?

@CiaoBob: too soon, CB, too soon… :frowning:

#27 - Crisp Cream Yam Bun. Even more spectacular than the excellent egg tart IMO

Pic source: Kevineats. Thanks Kev!


#53

where’s the menu from ???

it looks fucking dope.


#54

China Red


#55

I don’t think I’ve had that b/f! Sounds good…


#56

At China Red, my greatest weaknesses (and there are many) are the sweet cream buns, egg tarts (both varieties), sugar cakes, and because a person cannot live on sweets alone, the deep-fried prawn rolls as well as the chiu-chow dumplings.


#57

now what are chiu-chow dumplings ???


#58

Omg. Excellent selections. Thx.


#59

Great to see you here Liu

An out-of-towner’s ranking:

  1. Sea Harbour

  2. Elite (though haven’t eaten there in more than a year)

  3. Lunasia/China Red

  4. King Hua*

Haven’t yet been to Shanghai #1 for dim sum; haven’t been to the old-school cart places in years.

*Odd: even though I’ve listed this as 5 it gets converted to 4. when I post or save the edit.
