Dim sum is one of my favorite weekend treats. I love tasting a little bit of everything, so it's one of the best meals to enjoy with a bunch of friends. In Los Angeles, the best dim sum is usually located outside the city, in Arcadia or Monterey Park—so it can be hard to find dim sum that's close by and available on weekdays.
But Pingtung on Melrose in L.A. satisfies my need for a little dum sum right in the city. Pingtung doesn't have carts like the traditional dim sum places do, but it does have a lot of my favorites, plus a few non-traditional options, as well.
I loved the spicy shrimp dumplings, steamed barbeque pork buns, and the green bean salad (because you need some veggies to balance out all those carbs!). Plus, it's modern, super low key, and less hectic than the traditional dim sum spots I usually visit!
