  1. For my money ...

    Cart-style: 888

    Menu-style: Seafood Harbour (or New Concept)

    1. the 2 that i go to the most are:

      full house in arcadia & 888 in san gabriel

      1. I like Empress Harbor in Monterey Park. My mom claims that if you ring up your check before 12 noon, they will take 20% off your check. However, I haven't verified this, yet.

        888 is also good.

        1. Would I be better off in Chinatown for dim sum?

            No, I don't think so. I believe the dim sum is better in the San Gabriel Valley.

              L.A.'s real Chinatown is the San Gabriel Valley. I don't think there's much worth going to at the "Chinatown" in L.A. Markets, restaurants, bookstores, everything-- find it in SGV.

            2. 888 is our all-time favorite for dim sum.
