Dim Sum Help

Hi! I just drove by lakeside deli and there is a sign that they have retired. I am in search of another dim sum restaurant that is equally as good. I am open to all recommendations. I have heard of Imperial Inn and Joy Tsin Lau but wanted to know about the food. Thanks!

  1. Go to Ocean Harbor. It's a traditional dim sum restaurant with carts. It's loud though and might be intimidating at first but the best way to get over that is to ask to see what's in the carts. While there are language barriers, there's only one reason people show--its the food--and the ladies wheeling the cards are eager to show you the offerings of each cart. Also, very crowded on Saturday/Sunday mornings (esp. Sunday) since that's the day most Chinese families go out for tea. Delicious and better than any of the Chinatown dim sum houses--including Lakeside---any day.
