Fodor's Expert Review Legend Seafood Restaurant
Use your best cab-hailing technique and sign language to make the cart ladies stop at your table and show you their fare at this large, loud Hong-Kong-style dim sum spot. The pork-filled steamed buns, spinach dumplings, taro-and-pork gok (bite-size fried balls), and still-warm custard tarts are excellent pre-shopping fortification. Dim sum is priced by the dish, and it's not expensive, so knock yourself out. The place also has à la carte lunch and dinner menus. Do as the locals do: start your visit to Chinatown with breakfast dim sum, but get there before 9 am if you want to hear yourself think, especially on weekends.
