Westminster: Seafood Cove II

Dim sum originated as a Cantonese cuisine where small bite-sized portions of food are served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. In Chinese, it is traditionally called “Yum Cha”, meaning drink tea.  The original practice used to be in the form of a relaxing morning meal with a pot of tea to aid in digestion. Now, it is more common to enjoy this as a weekend brunch or lunch, usually with a group of people to share.

For our particular lunch, we flagged down the trolley with the hot steamed items, and selected (from top left, clockwise):
    • Ha Gow, shrimp dumplings steamed inside a rice wrapping
    • Chicken feet
    • Pork spare ribs in black bean and garlic
    • Xi Long Bao, a juicy pork dumpling in a rice wrapping
    • Siu Mai, a pork dumpling in a won ton wrapper

Later, we found another trolley with steamed Chinese broccoli, and a rice noodle roll filled with barbecue pork, called Churng Fun.  The rice noodles are first steamed, then filled with different types of meats or vegetables and cut into bite size servings.  We also found a different trolley which had soups and congee, also known as porridge. Below is our pork and salty egg porridge, topped with onions and fried won ton chips.

Lunch was served family style, where the food is placed in the center of the table, and everyone shares the dishes.  Our lunch came to $51 before tip, which is usually 10-15%. The food was hot and fresh, and the service was not bad.  The parking, however, can be a challenge, as it is located in a busy Asian strip mall with multiple tenants.

Seafood Cove II is located on the second level at 9211 Bolsa Ave in Westminster, California.
