Dim sum at Elite Restaurant in Monterey Park. A damn-near perfect way to spend a Sunday morning.
Note the bowl in the left foreground -- empty save for a few baby bok choi and a bit of broth. Doesn't sound like much, but really delicious, and a nice respite from all the friedness and dumplings. The vegetables always get the shaft. (On that note, why is it that whenever I go to dim sum, I see big beautiful dishes of Chinese broccoli on the tables of families who seem to know what they're doing, and yet I never order it? Mark my words, friends, next time I go for dim sum, there will be Chinese broccoli, and how!)

Elite Restaurant is at 700 Atlantic Blvd. in Monterey Park.
