Ocean Harbor and Ocean City are hard to tell apart: they’re both dim sum places, they both use carts, and they both have more seafood options than other Chinese places in the city. The biggest reason to come to Ocean City, though, is for the congee - which has salty, savory pork and a century egg (a salty preserved egg). The service is usually better and quicker at Ocean City as well, but otherwise, the two spots are essentially interchangeable.
