My school starts incredibly early this year, and I am looking to get in one last good lazy breakfast before the ripping chaos of weekend hw. In other words, I want to go out with a bang, so I thought of my favorite meal; dim sum. Sadly, I cannot make the holy pilgrimage to the san gabriel valley, so I will have to make due with our chinatown here. Is there any hidden dim sum jewels? Or is it basically Emperess and etc? Thanks.

  1. I really like Ocean Seafood and in fact, I prefer Ocean Seafood over Empress Pavilion. It just seems there are always more options to choose from.

    1. After two less than thrilling dim sum encounters this year at Empress Pavillion, I'm not sure I can recommend that as a destination anymore. You might be better off at CBS Seafood or Golden Dragon (!!!) instead.
