Chinese/Dim Sum in Cupertino

Burke and Wells | Aug 26, 2001 03:01 AM

A full review is forthcoming, but I have to offer this preliminary report on our newest Chinese place in the South Bay--too many people are asking for a good place down here.

Loon Wah (on De Anza Blvd. near the 85 intersection) isn't the best Chinese--in fact, I know of a better one in Freemont (Burke disagrees, he prefers Loon Wah), but it's important for Dim Sum, because they serve both a Hong Kong style AND a Mandarin style.

This is the only place I know that serves both styles. The Mandarin tends to be a bit more deep-fried, but there are some gems on both menus, and the price is pretty reasonable. This isn't the place to go for a full, all-out Dim Sum with the porridge and shark fin soup, but the dumplings are excellent and the pickled vegetables crisp and sweet.

Okay, that's all for this quick report, more to be said in the full review. Good chowhounding!
