In addition to Chef's Wok and East Ocean, Webster Street now offers dim sim at Kapok Seafood Restaurant. Currently they are runnng a special, small, medium, and large plates are $1.99/each.
My boss took out the office for lunch today. I was unable to catch the name of everything he ordered due to the din and my own hearing issue. What I did enjoy was the chicken feet (very tender), har gou (light wrappers, lots of shrimp), another steamed dumpling that was shrimp & spinach (same as har gou), and a taro cake much like lo bak gao. The boss also selected spare ribs (looked meaty), fried taro puff, and tofu skin roll ( good, but I prefer the one at East Ocean).
The dining room was crowded at a little after noon, but there were free table when we left about 1. They serve dim sum from 11 - 3.

    Thanks for the report. I saw the banner and was thinking about checking it out, but the reviews on Yelp were not encouraging.

      My in laws (one of whom will say "not bad" to almost anything edible) said that the dim sum at Kapok was bad, bad, bad. They *hated* it.

      Is that daily or just on the weekends?
