Last weekend, my good friend Ken Tanaka, YouTube celebrity, artist, animal lover and otherwise renaissance man, accompanied me for dim sum at King Hua in Alhambra. King Hua is one of my current favorites for dim sum. Their food is fresher and sharper than your standard dim sum. I also appreciate that you can choose from a wider selection of teas than at most dim sum houses. Dim sum is so much better when enjoyed with a deeply earthy cup of pu-erh tea than the usual swill.
And unlike me, Ken photographs food (and animals). See his excellent report on our meal here. As for King Hua, it was excellent as usual. I especially liked their fried rice, which I hadn't tried before. It was well balanced with just the right amount of oil to give it that slightly glistening look.
