It isn’t exciting. It isn’t fantastic. But it is good, clean, and hot. No carts. What? No carts? Exactly. Everything is steamed or fried to order so the food is fresh and hot. You order with a pencil from a paper checklist. Prices are reasonable. I’m sure nothing is organic, nor sustainable, nor did the pig have a name before it died. You can probably get out of there for under 5000mg of sodium. They also have a parking lot which usually has available space. Service is polite and efficient.
I have no idea how the non-dimsum / dinner food is.
I love that place. They have the best Cantonese crispy noodles with mixed seafood around. It’s so good that I rarely order anything else. But the DOTM at CH was chow fun recently, and I asked them to make the same mixed seafood but over the rice noodles, and it was also great.
Is the dish size “lunch for 1,” or “lunch for 1 with leftovers?”
Lunch for one with several meals’ worth of leftovers. I’m a light eater.
Now that this place has closed, is there anything similar (steamed fresh-to-order dimsum, not from carts) in the area (northside of Berkeley and points north)? The lack of hassle for traffic, parking, getting a table, etc., held a lot of value in a visit there … on the other hand, this is why it probably closed.
