ipsedixit's Top 10 Dim Sum
Since I've gotten a few e-mail requests for dim sum recommendations, I thought I would just open it up to the entire peanut gallery here and see what the collective beehive thinks is good dim sum these days.
Cuz, really, what do I know about dim sum; I don't even really like the stuff that much.
Anyway, here's my Top 10 list based on the past 3 years and at least 6 visits (unless otherwise noted).
1. Sea Harbour
2. Hakkasan (based on 1 visit in LA and multiple visits in NYC)
4. Happy Harbour
5. King Hua
8. Ocean Star
9. New Capital (Rowland Heights)
10. Full House
(Others that didn't make the list but are quite good based on less than 6 visits, in alphabetical order: Atlantic Seafood, China Red and Shanghai No. 1)
So that's *my* list.
Feel free to critique, but if you do so you better bring your own Top 10 list with you. Cuz only those of us who live in glass houses can play with rocks.
As Rome would say, "have a take and don't suck"
I refuse to click on lis--oh dammit.
"Cuz, really, what do I know about dim sum; I don't even really like the stuff that much." That's a great tagline for this list!
i'm sorry, but as a protest against this sort of thing and how it's not only destroying journalism and food, but the very earth itself, i patently refuse to click on this thread.
i encourage everyone who reads this to do likewise.
also, please ignore theoffalo's blatent pre-stealing of my idea or
risk the disappearance of all traditional foods.
