Let’s set the stage. It is 9:30 AM and you pull into a huge parking lot, surrounded by a Best Buy and other large chain stores. As you approach the back of the parking lot, you see a large line, well, more like a crowd, forming in front of a Chinese-style pagoda roofed building. You join the line, wait for about 30 minutes and then you are ushered into a large banquet hall style restaurant. Welcome to Koi Palace– home of some of the best xiao long bao dumplings in the Bay Area.
The Dim Sum was incredible. Hands down incredible. I would go as far as saying, it was some of the best Dim Sum I have had in the Bay Area. With that being said, it is definitely an activity- meaning, you have to go early, wait in line and it generally overwhelming.
If you are looking to get a Dim Sum experience, something a little out of the ordinary, this is your spot.
