Last week, Tida, Alexandra and I celebrated the season and Chowhound gathering #23 with dim sum at City View. Alex was the veteran here, while Tida and I were trying it for the first time. We had planned well by arriving at 11:30am, as it was packed by noon time.
My favorite dishes were the cha siu so (bbq pork in flaky pastry), bell peppers stuffed with shrimp forcemeat, the steamed sharks fin dumpling crowned with a whole prawn, and sesame ball dessert. Overall, the quality was very good and can compete with the best in the City.
Including tip and tax, the price per person was $15.
