best dim sum Bay Area, late 2014?

david kaplan | Nov 28, 201403:33 PM     27

Starting a new post on best dim sum for two reasons:

1) A quick search on the board didn't turn up any recent (2014) general discussions of best dim sum. If I missed it, please point me there and I'll shut up.
2) My own go-to dim sum places seem to be disappearing or disappointing. A recent visit to Hong Kong Flower Lounge in Millbrae was far worse than I ever experienced before (gummy steamed dumplings, undercooked pan-fried items), and reports on the board on other former favorites (Asian Pearl, Zen Peninsula) have been mixed to poor.

Koi Palace continues to impress. Where else is currently in that league -- preferably without the mark-up of Yank Sing or Crystal Jade?
