Channel 2's Best Dim Sum In LA

Chandavkl Jul 18, 2013 11:26 AM

Just think if they didn't bring Clarissa along.

    You can defend her all that you want but, I calls them like I sees them.

      doesn't she?

        She'll have to respond to that but, not according to Chandavkl & raytamsgv. I would never sell my soul to the devil and state that these are my top 5 unless they actually were.

          oh, i must have missed that. apologies.

          as far as selling one's soul to the devil, as you call it, i don't know or have never heard of a paid writer not doing it.

      In one breath she says "Sea Harbour = top 5 dim sum in LA", in another breath she says "Sea Harbour has went down significantly in quality recently. Try Lunasia. I promise you it's 100x better."

        So Lunasia is on top, followed way way way behind by Sea Harbor et all. If this were the Tour de France, the winner would be riding up to the Champs de Elysee while the rest of the pack is pulling up at Porto Vecchio on their tricycles in their clown suits...

          While Elite would be in my top 5, if you forced me to do a top 5 list that included someplace in WLA and a place with carts, it probably wouldn't be in mine either.

            "Her top 5 restaurants"

              I think Clarissa knows the difference between Elite and Pingtung

                if it had been phrased as her five favorite it would have been easier to swallow, not sure if a pun is intended..

                I'm somewhat bemused that Din Tai Fung was not included. In some ways it's the default gringo Chinese dumpling spot.

                  Noooo you'll cause a rift in the space-time continuum as the collective rage of those shouting "DTF is NOT dim sum!" echo throughout the universe...

                    It could happen.

                      The space-time continuum has been torn from time to time - only to be repaired by ipse audibly ripping into the would-be culprit...

                  Sometimes, journalists work within the limitations outlined by editors. KCBS/KCAL/KNX broadcast to the entire greater LA area. I'm guessing that the editors want to give their audience at least one option that's not in the SGV.

                    I'll repeat what Porthos said on the other thread, then address it as such. To state top 5 and not include Elite is ridiculous.

                  There would be no list?

                    I shudder at the thought.
