Oriental Garden - scrumptous dim sum

On a monthly family trip down to chinatown for asian ingredients (Dynasty Market) we will usually hit New Green Bo or Joe's Shanghai for lunch, but this time I was insistent we try something new.........we almost headed to Dim Sum Go Go but then decided on Oriental Garden. Can't believe I have missed thislace all these years! What a treat. This bustling, but friendly and clean (restrooms on ground floor and not in basement a Plus!)establishment was the best dim sum I have had. No steam pushcarts, but waiters with trays full of steaming plates of a wide variety of dim sum constantly exiting the kitchen. We were lucky enough to be seated near the kitchen door and had first dibs on everything. All plates were hot and made with the freshest ingredients. We liked most......fresh live baby shrimp deep fried with the shells and heads served with fried garlic, the dumplings were all tasty esp.the chicken and bok choy, the clams in black beans were another favorite. The porkcops, although deep fried and smothered in sweet sauce was somehow not greasy and another favorite. The pork meatballs and baby bok choy were both bland, but overall we had a great experience.
