We're forever asked, "Where can I get good dim sum without heading to the SGV?" And now we have another answer: Kingdom Dim Sum. This no-frills dim sum spot in the same Thai Town strip mall as Mae Malai offers solid steamed and fried dim sum staples, from crispy turnip cakes to custard-filled pineapple buns to giant, tennis-ball-sized siu mai stuffed with whole shrimp. Nothing is worth driving across town for, but dishes like sweet-and-sour braised chicken feet and flaky egg tarts are a pleasant surprise in this part of town. Most customers take their order to-go, but there are a few tables if you want to eat your dumplings and buns fresh. Just be aware, the plates are paper and the chili oil and hot mustard come in packets.
