I'm not sure how this would compare to Joe's Noodle House, but we had dim sum at Hollywood East a couple weeks ago and we ordered the deep fried spicy shrimp, squid and scallops fro the regular menu. I'm not a big fried guy, but I thought this dish was great. Nicely seasoned and not greasy at all. It could use a bit more heat, but it's still quite tasty. The shrimp isn't fried in the shell with the head on, so it's a decent dish to order for folks who might feel a bit squimish about that. You also get a nice mound of the stuff for 11.95 so I think it's a pretty good deal.
