Best Brooklyn Dim Sum...Seriously?

my standard reference 8th avenue dim sum place is Pacificana. I've seen a few other largish places open in the area and wonder if any of them can match or surpass the quality and diversity of the dim sum at Pacificana. What do you like and why?

    1. There's been some discussion about this previously.

      1. East Harbor...but the wait on a Saturday or Sunday is an hour or more.

          There has been no wait when I go before 11AM. But I have to tolerate hungry people staring at us!

            We went today around noon and there was no wait at all!
            It's Friday though.

              So, did you like it? What did you have? Did you get the clams?

                We didn't have clams, there were only two of us, and the other doesn't like clams. I've had them before there and they were good.

                We had eggplant stuffed with shrimp in black bean sauce, which was the best version of this dish ever, I assume it was a special because a waiter had it, not the carts.

                From the carts we had fried bean curd skins stuffed with shrimp or fish paste, three large that were the size of egg rolls which they cut in half and served with worcestershire sauce, (we preferred soy), steamed bean curd skins with pork and vegetables, lo mai gai. which is sticky rice with chicken, sausage, mushrooms and sauce steamed in leaves, shumai, har gau, a bit too much for two, we were stuffed, and the bill was $19.50 plus tip.
