Lunch at New East Lake in Milpitas

Yimster | Jul 5, 200201:19 PM     6

We had lunch yeaterday at the New East Lake located at 61 Serra Way in Milpitas, 408 263 9338. Five of had more than we could eat. New East Lake has just started serve Dim Sum on weekends and holidays.

They do it the old way. You order from a list and they then steam it and serve it while it is still hot and steaming. This how we used to get Dim Sum in Chinatown before the Dim Sum carts.

The har gow came 5 to a steamer, $3.00 was price for most of the Dim Sum orders. We also had chive gow 4 to a steamer. Maybe because it comes freshly steam it gives the impression that it is fresher and better.

We also had the following items: Seafood jook, Plain wonton, fried bread, fried bread wrapped with rice noodle (it was really good, as good Hing Lung on Broadway in San Francisco), beef tripe, fried green pancake, chicken feet in black bean sauce (to remember Derek by), East Lake chow menu (Hong Kong style) and zhong zi. I did most of the order before my wife spotted new Chinese (written in Chinese) menu with the Dim Sum.

The bill was 43.00 plus. So it came out to less than $10.00 per person. Maybe Chowhound could try this place on a weekend, as another example of Dim Sum in a less rushed climate (sometime in the new style of Hong Kong Dim Sum it is a bit rush because you have to grab what you can when you can)? By ordering off a list you get your order one or two items at a time to eat at a slower pace.
