I mean you can’t go wrong. This is like traditional dim sum at it’s very best
number five China red restaurant
This is one of the most popular dim sum restaurants in Arcadia, and it’s one of my favorites
I’ve been there quite a few times already
it’s a very busy restaurant so you could probably wait for like thirty minutes to an hour and they are a little bit on the
Pricey side because it’s a little bit more of an upscale dim sum restaurant
But it is a very satisfying meal and I personally think it’s worth it. They have a great shumai
They have great chicken feet and they have these purple yam
desserts like these balls that are just so
So good that you just cannot miss out on it because this is something that they don’t really serve in too many dim sum
Restaurants, so if you see this restaurant in Arcadia, you are in good hands number four King Hua restaurant
This is also another restaurant. That’s really popular in the alhambra area
it’s a very old-school traditional dim sum restaurant but has garnered a really good reputation amongst the Chinese people in the
Community they have some really authentic food. I mean everything there all around is very tasty
So if you see this restaurant then this is also another one that you can bet on is a very good restaurant in Alhambra
Number three, Lunasia restaurant, this is one of the critical darlings of Los Angeles
They have two locations one in Pasadena and one around the San Gabriel area and it’s one of the absolute best dim
sum restaurants in Los Angeles
It is a little bit pricey I admit but it’s a really really wonderful restaurant. The decor is really nice
It’s a really good place to have dim sum and to hang out and especially if you are in the Pasadena area
Then this is the best dim sum that you will get in that area. Number two elite dim sum restaurant
