My favorite dim sum place is the popular CBS Seafood Restaurant, at the corner of Spring and Ord Streets (just uphill from Phillipe's).

I also like Golden City restaurant, on the street level by the same mall where Empress Pavilion resides, for Cantonese food. However, the quality there is somewhat uneven. We tend to get better food when 1) not too many people are there (i.e., restaurant is half-full or less) and 2) on the weekend.

Much appreciated your service is to us lurkers.

As of 072805, Mandarin Deli in Chinatown is still going strong. Perhaps "anonymous" refers to the Little Tokyo branch.

I am always pleased with whatever I've ordered at Yang Chow, on Broadway a couple doors north of Alpine. Everyone orders the slippery shrimp. I like the hot wonton garlic soup, the eggplant with garlic sauce, and the special lamb w/ scallions. Need reservations for weekday lunch -- very popular for downtown courts. Parking in back or across street.
