Golden Dragon Dim Sum - LA Chinatown

Clinton | Jul 2, 201108:28 AM     14

Got invited to dim sum at Golden Dragon on Broadway last week. Never been there before even though it's been there for a while which I was told? Surprisingly, it was pretty crowded for a weekday and the prices were about average per dish (about $1.89 or so). The push carts were quite busy and the selections were impressive for Chinatown. My usual place would be Ocean Star or NBC in Monterey park but Golden Dragon could be a good rival IMO. The first cart offered succulent char siu and roast duck plus the standard siu mai, ha gow, and rice noodle dishes. The stuffed bittermelon was OK but not spectacular but the sugar cane shrimp was nice and crispy. We missed the huge tray of low mein which came later when we were about done but did order some Hong Kong style noodles from the kitchen first thing off when we sat down. All in all, I found it to be probably an equal or better rival to Empress Pavilion but the only drawback was the parking. Street parking on weekdays was $2 and hour or $5 in the private lots. Bummers.
