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!

  1. You know what’s sad… I lived in LA for about 3 years and NEVER got dim sum there! I was just talking about Joy Tsin Lau in Philadelphia with friends YESTERDAY… so I am now majorly craving dim sum. Your photos made my mouth water 😀

  2. Thanks for sharing this gem! Im looking forward to trying this place when i go to LA soon. I totally agree- i would rather try a bit of everything and share dishes then have one big ol meal to myself.
    Thanks for the recommendation 🙂

  3. that looks delicious! i also wanted to mention that the shoes you linked to are for the wrong kinds.. do you have to link to the ones you are wearing in the first photo! i love them!
