LA Dim Sum: Only the Best!

young_chower | Jul 3, 2006 07:38 PM

Fellow Chowhounds,

One type of food that I have yet to conquer in the LA area is Dim Sum. In fact, I have never even had dim sum, which is sad and a little embarrassing.

I would like to fill this hole in my stomach with your expert advice. Allow me to state my dim sum mission:


I don't care where it is (except China... I know they have the best dim sum!), the decor, service, etc. I want to experience the best based on taste, most fantastic dim sum this city has to offer.

After some research, I know that the SGV is dim sum central. I also know that there seems to be two trends in LA dim sum: traditional and "new wave" dim sum. I would like to hear recommendations for both types and why the restaurant you recommend is the best and better that XYZ.

I would also like to have recommendations for what to order. What is the best dim sum to get at the dim sum best establishment? Also, what do the prices look like? Can I eat for $10? $15? Hopefully not more than $20.

So please, let me know what you feel is the best. THANKS FOR THE HELP!!!
