中国旧正月の飾りがまだ残ってました。/There was a display for Chinese New Year. Dim Sum@Sea Empress Seafood Restaurant: We went to Sea Empress Seafood in Gardena for Dim-sum lunch on 2/7/09 for the first time several months. They serve "Dim Sum" 7 days a week from morning to afternoon. We did not go there during Chinese New Year on purpose, because it gets crowded. It was 1/26/09 this year and celebrated for a week. They accept reservations 1 day or more in advance. This time we went there without reservation, and we were seated in about 7 minutes. (It was 60 minute wait during peak hours last year.)
右上の写真がここの小龍包。 The Right Above photo is "Shao Long Bao (Juicy Pork Dumpling).
Several carts with Dim Sum items come around your tables. You pick the items you like to eat. We had Steamed Shrimp Dumplings, Pork Dumplings, Sticky Rice in Lotus Leave, Boiled Chinese Broccoli, and etc. We asked a manager to bring us "Shao Long Bao"(Juicy Pork Dumplings), because the carts did not have it.
Maybe because I was taking photos, the manager was very good to us. He brought new clean plates and fill up our tea pot even before we asked.
This restaurant opened more than 10 years ago as a branch of "Empress Pavilion Restaurant" in China Town, Los Angeles. We like cooking and service of this restaurant better than "Empress Pavilion." There are several Chinese restaurants that serve "Dim Sum" along PCH in Lomita, but I like this restaurant the best in South Bay Area of Los Angeles.
The location used to be "Kawafuku Restaurant." "Kawafuku" had a large room for more than 200 customers and other rooms. It was one of the largest Japanese restaurants in Los Angeles, but it closed it's 25 plus year history.
友人ＪさんとLisaky。よく食べました。右のカートには北京ダックもありました。。 Friend J and Lisaky. We ate a lot. There were Peking Duck on the right cart.
It's been raining in Los Angeles since last Thursday. Last Saturday it stopped raining around 9 AM in South Bay area, and it turned out to be a nice weather. It rained in Orange County until afternoon, though.... It will be raining on and off until Tuesday or Wednesday.
It's often sunny with perfect blue sky in LA. I am attracted to 'clouds after rain.'
