The second location of the popular - and truly excellent - dim sum spot from Alhambra, Lunasia has a big modern space right on Colorado Blvd. You order on a paper notepad, so you’ll absolutely get carried away and end up with a couple extra boxes of dumplings to bring home. Which is a very good thing, because this is some of the best Chinese food in LA. Our favorites are the jumbo shrimp har-gow dumplings, and the shrimp and spinach dumplings, which are light and fresh.
