Best Dim Sum?
I think many on this board will feel that this subject has been discussed ad nauseum. However, I've recently seen a couple of posts regarding NBC reopening soon. It was mentioned that they will be serving dim sum off of a menu which seems to be the trend right now. If you have yet to try these menu-driven places like Sea Harbour in Rosemead, or Elite that is just down the street from NBC, you may want to give these places a try. The quality and selection is quite good compared to the typical cart-driven dim sum houses in the valley, and the service is a little more attentive in my opinion. Yes, it costs more, but in my eyes, it's still a huge bargain when compared to the equivalent level of dining in other areas or cuisines.
Elite... went there today again.
-Crispy shrimp in rice roll (has it all: the crispy layer, the succulent shrimp and the rice noodle wrap: the perfect dim sum)
-Shiu Mai (best version of the otherwise standard dim sum choice)
-Shark Fin/ red clam dumpling (pimped out har gow)
-Pan fried noodle in XO sauce (not too spicy, just the right amount of kick)
-Macau custard tarts (oh... my... god...)
Note they'll charge for a tea set up even if you don't drink it, so... drink it.
Try to go before noon or after 1:30 during the week, or around 11:00 or after 2:00 on the weekends, else you'll be waiting for a while.
