Thank you to all those chowhounds who recommended the Lakeside deli for Dim Sum. Because it is off the beaten-path in Chinatown (9th & Race), the prices were phenominal.
We had the steamed pork dumpling (served with great sauce) Would rate a 3.5 out of 5,
Chiu chow shrimp roll (again, great sauce), 4 out of 5,
chinese brocolli with oyster sauce, 5 out of 5,
stuffed eggplant, 5 out of 5,
and sesame cold noodles 5 out of 5.
The sesame noodles were a bit spicy, but it was not indicated on the menu. I loved them, but my husband thought that they were too spicy (he hates spicy food). The tea was brewed from leaves and was refreshing. The hostess/waitress was extremely friendly and nice. It is not a fancy place, but we sdidn't go there for atmosphere. We wanted well-priced great food and that is exactly what we got. We were stuffed and I even have leftover sesame noodles for lunch today.
Any other great dishes anyone recs? Thanks again!
