nice assortment of dim sum!


Re Jasmine - we went for the first time about six months ago, and from the parking to the cramped seating to the off-flavors, I didn't get it. We still go to Emerald, but out of loyalty above anything else. *sigh*


We enjoy eating here Kat!

I know James....such is the state of dim sum in San Diego.

Maybe the next time you are traveling up you should try China Red in Arcadia or J Zhou in Tustin? I particularly like J Zhou. Also if you're ever in SF you should definitely try Dragon Beaux.


Hi Jon - Thanks for stopping by and commenting. China Red is on my list...though I had friends who went to J Zhou and found it terribly over-priced and underwhelming...including something like almost $20 for "ok" (their words) Kwai fei ji....though, if you think it's that great we'll give it a try..... Sounds like you have a affinity for upscale décor.

Hey Kirk,

No problem! Been a fan of this blog for years.

I can't speak to J Zhou's dinner service (with alright kwai fei ji) but I did like their dim sum. It's certainly pricey, though I think they have weekday discounts still? I found their dim sum to be of SGV quality, though perhaps not the level of Sea Harbour.

And interesting comment on the upscale decor. Certainly all my recommendations are a bit fancy in presentation, though I'd also say I am also just as happy eating a fish taco at Bahia Don Bravo, a bowl of pho at Pho Cadao, or a bowl of wonton noodle soup at Tan Ky Mi Gia (MM one before it became Tim Ky Noodle).


Good enough Jon.....we'll check it out. Thanks for the rec!

I knew what you (and the missus) think about SD dim-sum - hence my comment. But SD is easier for us, and I really did prefer Emerald last time to Jasmine. but yeh, that's not saying much.

On a better note, Tina and I will be in LA and staying in SGV for a few days next month.


I'm sure you'll have a great time in the SGV Ed!
