This place is one of the best dim sum places in South Bay, definitely worth trying. I recommend the Xiao Long Bao, Spicy Wontons, and/or Braised Beef Noodles.

Of course, what is a trip to California without some In-N-Out? Pro Tips: I get a "Three by Two" (Three patties, two slices of cheese) with extra tomatoes (free), chopped chilis (free), and grilled whole onions (free). You can also try animal style fries or animal style burgers. I also get my fries well done.

Really lowkey bar, it's hard to find the entrance since its more of a speakeasy. It's right along the street, across the street from a parking lot. Really chill vibes.
