Elite Restaurant in Monterey Park.

Believe it or not, Elite is the name of a infamous little restaurant in Monterey Park, passed the famous NBC Seafood Restaurant.

I went in there just because my friend said his cousin had a recent job there, and told him that this restaurant has the most fresh seafood, even more so than NBC.

I had to check this out, obviously knowing the fame of NBC, and the irony of Elite being as little as 3 blocks down. I end up at Elite for both Dim Sum (breakfast) and Dinner. The only time I've ever done that in my life (trust me, my personal life is filled with things to do).

I STRONGLY recommend this Chinese based restaurants to first the English or Americans who can't get enough Dim Sum, this has to be the most fresh and most delicate Dim Sum in Los Angeles, (if it doesn't suit you the way me, I say top 5) I strongly suggest to try their dinner menu after you have tried their dim sum. The reason i recommend this to Americans or other ethnics other than Asian is because the service towards non-Asians is phenominal. Talk about tolarating other ethnicities. I wasn't so sure when I saw Chinese letters and most Chinese People inside, how I would be treated, but to my surprise; the servants were neither too surprised or too misprised to see a non-Asian. This was a first.

You won't find me adding new topics very often either, but this one had me at the modern way of ordering dim sum. This restaurant is recommended for everyone, family, adults, rich or poor. Great choice in simple chinese dining, the only bad thing is the poor selection of beer. ;]
