Time Out says

Once the home of the famed foie gras dumpling, Lunasia Chinese Cuisine offers a fresh take on classic dim sum with a polished space that serves the eager brunch crowd steamed and baked bites. Housemade dumplings include juicy pork siu mai topped with mounds of bright orange roe, delicate har gow and beef chee cheong fun, a good effort, but missing the translucence achieved by other local favorites. Instead, opt for dessert offerings like the almond milk tea, a show-stopping dish of hot, sweet almond milk covered by a flaky puff pastry top.

Lunasia has always been one of my top 3 favorite places to enjoy Sunday brunch dim sum with a large group of friends. Everything is made to order, once you order from the menu. And everything is served optimally.

I especially love their green, scallop dumplings, which are way more than 1-2 bites. Their egg custard tart is the best I've had in town. They are impossibly creamy with a flaky, layered crust and often come out warm.
