Is there a specific spot in Los Angeles, preferably around the downtown area that has these delicious steamed pork bun. Thanks

  1. Empress pavilion downtown has them, as does ABC Seafood.

    1. LA Chinatown any dim sum restaurant or dim sum take out place has them. Personally I don't find any significant difference in taste in a steamed char sui bow from any of the places.

      1. You can also get them at 99 ranch or other supermarkets and steam them at home.

        1. There's a takeaway dim sum place in the 700 block of North Hill that does cha shu bao. Any dim sum place has them. BBQ Unlimited #2 on Melrose near the 101 has them.
