Better than the supposedly dim sum they server here in SATX.


I haven't been to Emerald in forever. For that matter, I haven't had dim sum in SD for awhile. I usually go to Jasmine but I do prefer the menu card system like at China Max. Looks like the tea charge was $1.50 which I thought was the going rate.

I'll have to try them again. Last time I visited they were remodeling. I like their bbq pork pan fried noodles.

Oh yes, billy, there are worse places for dim sum than San Diego. Tina and I were very disappointed in Vegas, for example. And Yuma . . .

I went to Emerald early on, Sandy, and liked the card system at CM, but it's not been as good. 2 times recently we'd gone to Jasmine, but it left me wanting better. Kirk and I went to Pearl years ago, but it is a more of a drive than we wanted Sunday morning. So that was why we tried the new Emerald.

I don't mind being charged for tea, but we did pay $4.50 for a small pot.


Did they not refill the tea pot? Not good. I have actually had good dim sum in Las Vegas; I'll have to check on restaurant names.

Your comment, Sandy, got me to look at the pics from the place in Vegas - I don't recall its name, but we may have ordered badly - got a noodle dish that was really boring. But the chicken feet were really good.

I missed your comment Soo; I think we were posting at about the same time. Try it and let us know.


Wait, $4.50 for one pot of tea? The entry on the receipt has a 3 by it, so maybe they accidentally added 2 more pots of tea to the receipt? I haven't been to Emerald since about 2009 but used to go regularly before that. Odd to see it with such a different color scheme now.
