Hello, everyone,
I will come from L.A. to Houston, seeing my relatives and so on this Christmas. I was wondering if there are some good Chinese Dim-Sum restraurants in Houston, like those ones in San Gabriel and Rosemead of L.A.?
I heard that the Chinese community here in Houston is only second to L.A. in the country, so I hope you guys can give me some names and addresses.
Thanx a lot.

Hahaha, cute. Our dim sum is better the LA. Almost as good as Hong Kong.

Ocean Palace on Bellaire or Jade Garden in Sugar Land. But many many of them in China town on bellaire area.

I would disagree as I've had really good dim sum in LA and Vancouver and I haven't found anything as good here.
Here, Fung's kitchen is usually favored by my chinese friends. The chef is really reknowned but I notice the quality has declined over the years so not sure if the chef has changed or not. I also like Kim Son at Fountainlake (Highway 59 around Kirkwood). There was a thread about this so you can get more ideas:

By the way, how is the price for a plate? Here in L.A. plates are about 1.75 to 2.50. I heard prices are way more than L.A. Is it true?

Try harder. I used to live in Hong Kong. I know good dim sum from an O.K one.
Actually the Kim Son on Bellaire is a much better place than the one on 59.
As for HongCouver is yes I agree, very good dim sun indeed.

I don't know what's going on with Ocean Palace, the past few times we've been it hasn't been nearly as good. Selections are smaller and the building needs some TLC, it's getting a very shabby/dirty feel to it.
