Village Voice's Description

Dim sum has made a spectacular comeback in the city, and East Harbor is in the forefront. The dining room is the size of a football field, and every day from morning till around 1:30 in the afternoon, carts propel around the room steered by their smartly uniformed attendants. From around 30 varieties, you should start with the shrimp sio mai, gnurled little dumplings with the thinnest possible rice-noodle covering, barely concealing the two huge shrimp inside. For kids, the sautéed radish cake is a must, and for adventuresome eaters, the braised chicken feet slough off their thick skin in a way that makes them much easier to eat. Don't forget to finish your dim sum feast with a plate of noodles, for good luck.

Tips from foursquare

  • Village Voice on 02/09/11

    Try the bamboo pith-deliriously spongy, unlike anything you've tasted-the winter melon provides a plain green backdrop. The broth in which the constituents flounder is chicken-y tasting & soothing

  • The Corcoran Group on 04/30/11

    Great and crowded place for delicious Dim Sum (don’t miss the pork buns) and early dinner (try the Pan Fried Flounder and the Hot & Sour soup).

  • Becky W. on 02/06/11

    The dim sum and dinner here is amazing! It's always so fresh and tasty. Definitely try the egg tart when it just comes out from the oven! It'll definitely make you go for seconds!

    Calling all fans of crispy fried chicken skin (so…everyone right?). The crispy chicken with dry minced garlic is succulent with some seriously crackling skin!

    Best dim sum in Brooklyn. Try not to eat your arm off while waiting for a table.
