I've got a good friend visiting me and we always go to Peony in Oakland for dim sum. Old habits die hard....
So, now that I've been reading reviews of other dim sum places, I see that Legendary Palace is one that I should check out. But then I also saw that East Ocean got good reviews. Of the two, which one is better? I don't care about noise level or service too much as long as the food is worth it all. :-)
I'm not missing any other dim sum hopefuls, am I? It doesn't have to be in Oakland/Alameda. I'm willing to venture further. Koi Palace isn't an option (read about too much MSG in their dumplings :-( ).
