Dim Sum in Lomita

Los Angeles is blessed with a large number of places where top quality dim sum can be had. Among the contenders for best dim sum in Los Angeles are Empress Pavilion in downtown Chinatown, and Harbor Village, Ocean Star, and NBC Seafood in Monterey Park. I have had wonderful dim sum at each of these places and others. However, I live in San Pedro, and sometimes don't have the time or inclination to drive all the way to downtown Los Angeles or Monterey Park (about a 50 to 60 mile drive round trip). Fortunately, I have found a very good place for dim sum in Lomita. Regal Palace Seafood Restaurant is located at 2166 Pacific Coast Highway, between Western and Crenshaw. It does not offer as wide a variety of dishes as the Monterey Park restaurants, so you can't get some things like jellyfish, duck tongues, or suckling pig. (Ah, the suckling pig at Ocean Star!) But it does serve plenty of things to keep me happy, and the quality of the dim sum is very high. I had dim sum there again last Sunday, and especially enjoyed the chicken feet in chile and black bean sauce and the jofu fa, although everything else was also very good. If you live in, or happen to be in, the South Bay area and are in the mood for dim sum, this is the place for you.
