SGV Dim Sum for Novices

nosh | Dec 28, 2006 05:35 AM

A very small group of us, two to four people, want to venture to the SGV for dim sum. Unfortunately, none of us speaks any Chinese. We've had dim sum a few times (primarily west side or Empress Pavilion) but want to try out the stuff folks on this board rave about. For our first journeys, we'd prefer to have cart service rather than menu-ordering only, though menus to help describe and select dishes wouldn't hurt. One of our party eats seafood but not meat. Reviews on another review site tell tales of non-Asians sometimes being ignored, so we hope to avoid that. With all of this in mind, I am tempted by Dommy's review of Ocean Star a week or so back, and I've also seen good feedback about New Capital Seafood. Looking for places with lots of shrimp and scallop options, and I love crispy -- potstickers and spring rolls. Any specific suggestions? Thanks.
