Dim Sum and Smiles… Always

 

 

Helllloooo My Wonderful Beautiful Bay Area!!…  Dim Sum is synonomous to Fun, Good Times, Delicious Food, Variety, Hot Tea and our Wonderful Beautiful Bay Area… or lets say most anywhere where there is a large population of Chinese… As a child growing up in our Wonderful Beautiful Bay Area… my sisters and I looked forward to having our weekly treat of dim sum with our mother… after making the rounds in Chinatown food shopping we got to top off the trip with a meal of dim sum… most dim sum houses are overflowing with folks at noon time… small plates with all kinds of dishes to enjoy!!…  Today… after many many years of  visiting dim sum tea houses throughout the US and the world… one of our very most favorite places is East Ocean Restaurant in the island town of Alameda, CA.

It is owned and operated by a family of sisters… all of whom focus on welcoming everyone who come to dine… It is by far one of the very best places to enjoy dim sum and always always served with a smile….  The mark of any great place to eat is not only the loyalty of its customers but its staff… the staff at East Ocean have been there many many years… there is a devotion to the business and to the people they serve… My husband and I have been loyal customers there for at least 17 years… the food is always fresh and always always served with a smile…  and the price is reasonable… if you’re ever in the mood to have Dim Sum served with lots of smiles… try East Ocean Restaurant.

When you go look for Millie or any of her sisters who will always greet you with a smile and a chat…
