dim sum - Joy Tsin Lau, Ocean Harbor, or other?

i moved to princeton, NJ, and there are NO real dim sum options around here. i moved here from NYC, where there are good spots, but from checking out the philly board, it doesn't seem like philly has too much to offer on the dim sum front either.


i really want some dim sum! it sounds like the debate is between joy tsin lau and ocean harbor as the best options - which do you think is the better cantonese dim sum? or is there another contender? we'll likely go this weekend. i don't need carts going around, but i'd like things like cheong fun, har gow, shumai, taro dumplings, turnip cake, steamed ribs, etc.

we figure we'll make a day out of it... dim sum for brunch, nam phuong for late lunch, federal donuts for a snack, and then something entirely different for dinner. can't wait!

let me know your thoughts - thanks!
