Sea Harbour vs. Elite

buttdrunk | Feb 24, 2013 09:01 AM

Here's the deal. After reading about which dim sum is the best in LA, I decided to go with what LA Weekly ranked as #1 Sea Harbour and #2 Elite.

I first went to Elite. Had the shumai, har gow and bbq pork bun, shark fin dumplings and vegetable dumplings. Also had the egg tart

The servers were amazingly rude and literally threw things on our table. Also had them charge me tea for my 3 year old. What?!

Then I went to Sea Harbour and ordered the same items. The servers were really polite and helpful. However, the place is more expensive than Elite.

Verdict: Elite is hands-down better than Sea Harbour in terms of food freshness and taste. It isn't even a contest. I hate this fact since the folks at Elite are such ****. The egg tart and har gow were stand outs. Craving them already.

Question to my fellow Chowhounders: Does the food quality vary drastically at these places and I encountered the 1 standard deviation for Sea Harbour?
