Dim Sum to go in Santa Clara?
Visiting friends with kids tomorrow in Santa Clara. We will be driving down from SF and would love to bring delicious dim sum -- would also like it to be as fresh as possible. Our destination is close to Great America (Lick Mill Blvd & Tasman Dr). Any chance there might be someplace good to stop on the way? Thanks so much in advance.
That area's pretty close to the Milpitas 99 Ranch Mall -- you can probably order takeout from the sitdown dim sum places Mayflower or ABC or the 99 Ranch probably has a takeout dim sum area. You can order takeout from HK Saigon nr Tasman and Lawrence Expressway also.
I think there's a place across 880 called Kim Lee also.

Thank you both to KC and Soup. I'm a little wary of the dim sum from Ranch 99; I'm also looking for a place where I can zip in and zip out (will have kid with me too). I'm going to give Dim Sum King a try. Always love to check out a new place anyway. Thank you!

Just to report back... We ended up bringing a big box of goodies from Dim Sum King to our visit with friends. In the box were egg tarts, baked cha shao bao, cha shao w/ puff pastry, and sesame balls. Your basic kid-friendly, finger food. The egg tart pastry was flakey, custard was delicate; the cha shao puff pastry was slightly too big, but also flakey and tasty; the cha shao bao was the perfect size -- filling well-portioned and seasoned; the sesame balls also had a good amount of not-too-sweet red bean filling. Everyone was pretty happy and noshing pool side. All in all, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. I just wish everything was still warm when we dug in :( We live in SF, but I do look forward to swinging by to try more items the next time we're in the neighborhood and in need of take away dim sum. Thank you again for the recs!
