South Garden Chinese Restaurant
This clean, cheerful spot done in standard Chinese-dining room chic (fish tank, red paper lanterns, round tables with swiveling trays) is packed on weekend mornings with Chinese families and other dim sum devotees. The classic trolley-cart service brings stacks of metal canisters to your table, each holding small plates of dim sum. Point and choose from dishes including har gau (shrimp dumplings), fried turnip cake and deep-fried chicken feet. Prices ($2-$4 a plate) encourage a tasting odyssey. The house-made congee (rice porridge) is served with wands of fried dough and chopped scallions for dipping (a typical breakfast throughout China). Other standouts include bean-curd skin stuffed with vegetables and char siu baau, puffy buns stuffed with moist, chopped roast pork.
