East Harbor Seafood Palace is our favorite dim sum spot in Sunset Park. Stop by with a group around noon on a weekend, and there will almost definitely be a wait - but the space is enormous, so you’ll probably be eating shrimp and watercress dumplings within 20 minutes of walking through the front doors. The beef ribs are especially good (and peppery) here, and the taro pork dumplings should be on your table. And if you’re eating later in the day, this place is also open for dinner with an expansive Cantonese menu.
