If you’re going to go eat dim sum, and you’ve got time to travel, battle the 60 freeway and go get in line at New Capital Seafood Restaurant in Rowland Heights. Don’t worry, the table turnover is fast, and unless you’ve come with an abnormally large group, you won’t be waiting too long.
I learned the hard way, but they do charge more on weekends (probably holidays too). On a weekday you can get a table full of dim sum for less than thirty bucks. New Capital has excellent food and is always a great deal. What more could you want? OK, OK…maybe better service.

Kids love this one. Lightly battered Shrimp Paste wrapped around a stalk of sugar cane. After eating the shrimp in the Honey Mayo sauce, you can chew on the sugar cane.
Chicken Feet. Not for the faint of heart. Bite off an extremity at a joint and work the skin off with your tongue. Then spit out the bones onto your individual plate. Every once in a while, or when you can actually catch one of the wait staff, they’ll change out the plates for you.
BBQ Pork stuffed inside of a bun, steamed up for your pleasure.
Shrimp and Chives wrapped up in a rice flour dumpling.
Tofu stuffed with Fish Paste.
Shu Mai. Not much needs to be said about this Pork and Shrimp treat. A standard dim sum offering.
Pork Riblets. Lots of fatty meat here, so don’t order this if you’re a white meat/low fat kind of person. Otherwise, enjoy every delicious morsel.
This is Rice Noodle Roll filled with Shrimp. You can also get it with BBQ Pork, which is equally delicious.
