Sea Harbour: 99 Essential Restaurants 2013

Live seafood can make a meal at Sea Harbour cost more than a night on the town in Beverly Hills. While it's nice to know you could come here for outrageously priced, fresh Cantonese seafood delicacies if you wanted, the main reason it's a favorite of ours is the dim sum. There are no dim sum carts at Sea Harbour. Instead you fill out a checklist, with your items then made fresh to order. The difference in quality is noticeable. Whether you like to gnaw on fatty, delicious chicken feet or you stick to pork dumplings, you'll be happy. You can order Chinese broccoli, pork ribs, steamed buns, dry scallop and meatball congee, all for around $4 a plate. The menu has photos to help you decide. And if you're ever hosting a Hong Kong businessman with a hankering for some very expensive seafood and an unlimited corporate account, well, you know a great spot to take him. 3939 Rosemead Blvd., Rosemead; (626) 288-3939. Dim sum Mon.-Fri., 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.; Sat.-Sun., 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m.; dinner nightly, 5-10 p.m. Dim sum plates $2.88-$6.98. Seafood: very expensive. Beer and wine.
