Hong Kong Dim Sum House
A far cry from the soaring dining rooms that dot the SGV, Hong Kong Dim Sum House is the little dim sum parlor that could. This charming family-run strip mall spot in San Gabriel isn’t much larger than your average hair salon, but in terms of price-to-quality ratio its near unbeatable in the SGV. You won’t find many options beyond the dim sum basics on the compact menu, but they all arrive fresh from the tiny kitchen in metal tins still billowing steam. We especially love their chive-filled chiu chow dumplings and delicate har gow. Make sure to ask for some of their excellent housemade chili oil, too. Most customer order takeout, but if you can grab one of the restaurant's six tables, dining in and witnessing the action is more fun.
