There seems to be broad agreement here that Sea Harbour and Elite are the top dim sum restaurants in the LA area. What would be contenders for third place?
Besides SH and Elite I've only been to Lunasia, which is okay but disappointing in comparison. Other candidates appear to be King Hua in Alhambra and Happy Harbor in Rowland Heights.
I don't get the hype about 888. I've gone here 3 times in the last 3 years, and each time has been an average or underwhelming experience. I went just 2 weeks ago, hoping my previous experiences were out of the norm. Nope, same as before.
To me, Empress Harbor and Ocean Star are easily superior, with other good choices like New Capital, Blue Ocean Seafood, and East Gourmet Seafood. Capital Seafood and NBC have fallen down my ranking list.
Capital Seafood Restaurant
755 W Garvey Ave, Monterey Park, CA 91754
8823 Garvey Ave, Rosemead, CA
East Gourmet Seafood Restaurant
8118 Garvey Ave, Rosemead, CA 91770
Blue Ocean Seafood Restaurant
1412 S Garfield Ave, Alhambra, CA 91801
