For many people, the words “dim sum” bring to mind vast ballrooms filled with families and friends and wheeled carts packed with metal steamers rolling past. If you fall into this category, NBC Seafood is your spot. Not only is this Monterey Park institution one of a handful of dim spots that still offer cart service, its brightly colored dining room is one the biggest social gathering spots in the SGV. The menu consists mostly of tried and true staples like juicy siu mai, silky cheung fun, and crispy turnip cakes, but everything is delicious, and the thrill of ordering from a passing cart instead of a regular menu can’t be overstated. Wait times on the weekends can get intense, so if you’re short on time, order from their takeout shop next door. It’s the exact same menu.
