Dim Sum at Triumphal Palace in Alhambra

slbear | Jul 12, 2005 05:49 PM

Just went to Triumphal Palace for dim sum today.

Here's what I ordered:

Spareribs in black bean sauce
Crispy fried shrimp egg rolls
Steamed rice noodle with fish
Baked tapioca pudding

Crystal shrimp dumplings

Not order again:
Special supreme dumpling in soup

The food was pretty good on average. The prices are similar to those of Sea Harbour and you also pick from a list, instead of cart service. The selection was small, but they do have the standard dishes. The service was okay. They were confused on which table ordered what. They redelivered the rice noodle to us twice, after we had already finished ours. I guess it’s acceptable given that they’ve only been opened for 3 weeks. Overall it was a pretty good. Foodwise, when comparing to other similar dim sum places, I think it’s not as good as Sea Harbour or NBC, but better than mission 261 or New Concept.
