Empress Pavilion is a landmark in the heart of Downtown LA’s Chinatown. At lunch, the dim sum ladies roll their steaming carts up to the tables so guests can sample the array of fried and steamed dumplings. At dinner, seafood is king. Try the steamed scallops in the shell, sautéed prawns with deep-fried milk or the rock cod filet in sweet and sour sauce. Bring plenty of friends along so you can order different things and share.
