Dim sum tomorrow
Friends want to go to dim sum tomorrow. They don't care about cart vs. menu, just want good. I've enjoyed 888 a few times but was wondering what people think about others, Triumphal Palace? Sea Harbour? Mission 261?
Sea Harbour is fabulous and not as expensive as the other two. Tomorrow will be a zoo, go as early as possible. I recommend the pork spareribs on rice rolls and gailan. It's like 3 orders in one, for $3.50 or something like that (whatever the "M" price is.) Almost enough to be a meal in itself.
I haven't gotten around to posting a review for The Kitchen yet as I am waiting to finish my tour, but basically I second everything Gold wrote in his column somewhat recently; it was excellent. Not pure "cart Sunday morning NYC Chinatown" dim sum experience though, be warned.
Sea Harbour, which will be a zoo.
If you want to minimize the wait, try Ocean Star which as a quicker and higher turnover rate.
