That mushroom tart looked so good Ed. I like the look of the flaky pastry and how they made it look like a yin and yang symbol (even with sesame seed dots).

Soo @ hungryones

That was a great road trip! I gotta try those shrimp and pork dumplings. I like the museum too.


Excellent post!

cc, good catch on the yin yang. I missed that. I hadn't had many pastry dim sum items, but I will try more in the future.

Thanks, Soo. We enjoyed the trip and the driving wasn't bad at all.

Thanks jan. Glad you liked.


What a nice trip you had! Sea Harbor has been on our "list" and we need to make the time to go there; each of your choices looks great ( celery always influences my choices in a positive way). Norton Simon is right there at the start of the Rose Parade route and we've been curious for years.

Nice trip. Sea Harbour was great. Their dim sum menu is huge, but has pictures. We prefer menu service. On the carts, I sometimes have no idea, and I think I'm not shown some of the weirder stuff.


The salted egg yolk bun is a family favorite; I don't think any place in SD serves it. Jasmine does have the sweet version that isn't quite as gooey. Too bad Sea Harbour is such a trek from SD.

I can understand your family's preference, Sandy. Kirk always laments the dim sum in SD, and a friend of mine here in Yuma says there's a quality dim sum house in Phoenix, better than anything in San Diego. I'll have to check it out.


About a year ago, I tried the Nha Trang bun rieu because Jonathan Gold likes/liked it. I was underwhelmed. It was really salty.

I guess I'll go for the one at Mien Trung next time I'm in LA

Sorry Steve, I've been out of town. I didn't notice to much salt, but there are several branches of Nha Trang.

However, Mien Trung is in San Diego, not LA.
