Mmm. Roast ducks displayed in the window. One duck is $12.95. Right now this is my favorite roast duck to-go place. The marinade has a slight honey flavor, not dark and soy saucy like Sam Woo's.
I got 1/4-lb of roast pig for $3.50.
And half a roast duck for $7.
There's a checklist of various dim sum items that you can order. The cashier then goes into the restaurant and gets your food from the dim sum carts. On weekdays, it's $1.60, weekends are $1.70. Yes, you saw that right. Four har gow (Chinese shrimp dumplings) were $1.60, 3 baked char siu bao (Chinese barbecued pork buns) were $1.60.
Three hom sui gok (Chinese sticky rice and pork dumplings) and 3 fried taro pork dumplings, each again only $1.60 on weekdays.
Even if it wasn't the cheapest dim sum I know of, I think it's still loads better in quality than other to-go places such as Yum Cha Cafe in San Gabriel or Dim Sum Express in Monterey Park.

1 year ago today, chili (the soup and not the pepper, although I did include an awful lot of peppers anyway).
