Dim Sum!

I didn’t actually know that Rosemead was a dim sum capital! It took Yen Li & Maggie coming all the way from Malaysia to tell me!

So far I’ve been to 3 places near me. All good. So far, greater distance seems to equal better dim sum!

  1. Best888 Seafood – 1.7 miles / 2.7 km
  2. BetterCrown Palace – 1.4 miles / 2.3 km
  3. GoodEast Gourmet Seafood – 0.7 miles / 1.1 km

After working all summer in the USA as lifeguards, Maggie and Yen Li were starved for some good “Hong Kong style Dim Sum” and delighted when we landed at 888 Seafood
