When it comes to dim sum in LA, Sea Harbour is like Meryl Streep. It’s been on top so long that some people start to take it for granted. But this two-decade-old grand Cantonese banquet spot in Rosemead not only pioneered many of the SGV’s prevailing dim sum trends—upscale twists on classics, ditching the carts for menu service—it still does as good as anyone. Sea Harbour doesn’t have the largest (or cheapest) menu, but we do appreciate that it’s filled with hits: sticky rice balls with salty egg yolk centers, truffle siu mai, and smooth-yet-flaky egg white custard tarts. And though the dining room does vaguely resemble a hotel conference room, the people-watching here is unparalleled: Come any day of the week and be greeted with a wondrous ladies-who-lunch crowd all clutching Prada bags, whispering about the latest neighborhood gossip. The biggest challenge here is battling the wait for a table on weekends.
