    1. re: ipsedixit

      by the way it's phrased, maybe looking for suggestions on where and how to get there?

      the best by consensus of the board seem to be (not in any particular order):
      king hua

      but they do not use carts and they are pricier than other places. the addresses can be found readily via google, but the best ways to get there via public transportation escape me.

    2. Are you looking for transportation advice? Which places would be closest to bus or train routes?

      Or are you asking for the best dim sum? In that case it would be helpful to know if you wanted menu or carts?

      1. Go to Elite. They give you a picture menu.

        Get there by 11 on a weekend or expect a 1 hour wait min.

        1. 1. Don't go via public transportation
          2. Go to a joint with pics on menu (e.g. Elite, or King Hua)
          3. Use your fingers to draw "X"s with provided pencil.
          4. What ipsedixit said.

          It's dimsum, not Tijuana.

          1. Flying Pigeon bike shop has a Dim sum ride once a month next one is Sunday April 21 at 10 ish. Call them to reserve a bike if you are not bringing one. To get there from the OC Take Metrolink to Union station get the gold line north to the heritage square stop and it is a couple of blocks from there. They pick places which are sometimes very good and some which are OK. Though Josef who runs the rides is knowledgeable and will stear clear of most of the not so good stuff which is brought by. This is a good introduction if you haven't been and usually there are enough people in the group to allow for a great variety in ordering.
