I’m new to Dim Sum and Capital Seafood at the Irvine Spectrum was a good place to start.
A knowledgeable friend took me there and led the way — She ordered several of her favorites and I tried them all. I can’t tell you the names and/or ingredients in what we had, but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the food. They serve over 100 types of Dim Sum.
Much is offered by way of the traditional push-cart.
Cart after cart, after tray, after cart, after cart stops by your table throughout.
Servers have scissors ready to cut each or any as requested by you.
Each piece is like a mini grab bag when you don’t know your Dim Sum.
I’d like to study-up before next time to know and choose what I might like best.
Capital Seafood Restaurant is fairly large inside and out and was mostly full this day.
We sat on the outside patio where much was offered to us.
We shared a good variety of Shrimp, Pork, crunchy, soft, sweet and hot Dim Sum.
All was a well-rounded starter kit at a good restaurant for Dim Sum.
There’s much more for me to learn about Dim Sum.
Order off the menu or point to what you want from the ever-changing, then repetitive carts.
They also have a Bar — $2 Beers are offered at Happy Hour M-F (3-7).
The adjacent Wine fridge is pretty cool too — No pun, really.
It also claims to be a trendy, hip and upbeat place to enjoy sports on multiple screens.
I’d like to go back and try more as soon as possible.
Our to-go boxes looked like this (below).
