NBC Seafood

NBC Seafood Restaurant
404 S. Atlantic Blvd
Monterey Park

Dim Sum at NBC Seafood is served by ladies who have food carts and you pick and choose what you want to order. When it comes to Dim Sum, I usually just stay wit the basics, shu mei, dumplings, and steamed pork buns.

NBC has some of the best Dim Sum around. As you can see from the picture, NBC is going through some renovation but is still open for business. We saw bare dry wall inside the restaurant.

The shu mei is full of fresh pork and shrimp, then steamed to perfection. Each plate of shu mei is $1.90.

The steamed pork buns are also $1.90 per plate. They are fairly small compared to other places I've gone to. But the pork was nice and tender. The bun was soft, with a good texture and had a nice sweet taste to it.

The last picture is pan fried dumplings with pork and shrimp. This was very tasty, though the outside was a bit tough and chewy.

Service is good. The ladies with the carts come at your in waves. They may not speak English that well but point and choose works. Be warned though, this is a very popular place for dim sum and on weekends you may wait over an hour to get a table. It can also get very noisy in the restaurant.

I would go back to NBC again and again. Next time I go, I want to try their regular menu.
