We happened upon Sea Harbour by accident, when we tried to get a table at the soon to be closing Tiki restaurant, Bahooka, up the street and failed.
The wait at Bahooka was two hours. The wait at Sea Harbour, 30 minutes. Much better, I guess. So hungry, our stomach linings already 75% eaten away, we had no choice.
What makes Sea Harbour stand out from other Dim Sum restaurants is most everything comes to you fresh and hot. No carts strolling around waiting for someone to choose it’s contents.
“Pick me, pick me!” the eager Suckling Pig cart yells desperately, as it’s temperature drops and it begins to congeal.
The place is clean and efficient and not as noisy as some Dim Sum joints I’ve been to. Condiments such as chili paste, ect, had to be requested, which was kind of annoying. Then again, I’m not a purist and everything edible can stand to be improved with the addition of some kind of sauce, spread or topping!
SOME STANDOUTS: the Juicy Pork Buns (Soup Dumplings, basically) the baked BBQ Pork buns, the Shrimp Dumplings, Lotus Leaf Rice, the beef rice noodles and the egg custard tarts.
NOT RECOMMENDED: the BBQ Pork pastries & the very odd and hard to eat/hold with chopsticks Pork, Celery and Peanut dumpling
