Authentic DimSum in SGV

Okay, I'm going to dim sum again this weekend and want adventurous diners opinions on which is better between Ocean Star and NYC Seafood (or is that NBC for dim sum?). When I say best, I mean not only quality between the two, but for dim sum, selection is also important and I'm more into the eclectic stuff that you don't see at your local bland Chinese American place. I could care less about the shu mai dumplings, or chicken dishes (except the feet...heehee) but prefer all parts of the pork especially the stomach, seafood, offal, snake if possible, tripe, juk, all parts of the duck, and of course the sticky rice, etc... Basically what do you guys think is the the more authentic and overall better place between the two. Thanks for any opinions.
By the way, it is true that Harbor Village has gone downhill ever since changing to Empress Harbor (or whatever they're new name is). Although most of their dim sum plates are very good, especially the juk, tripe, sticky rice steamed in leaf, and shrimp wrapped in that oh so glutinous,transclucent rice flour, the selection is pretty limited these days.
