Shanghai rice cakes at ROC Kitchen

Dim sum fans on the Westside know that they don't have to hike it to the SGV for quality dumplings—they just have to go to ROC. Sit in the industrial-chic space as the kitchen steams signature xiao long bao—choose juicy pork or fresh Dungeness crab—and fires up the wok—try Three Cup Chicken with fresh chiles, Thai basil and roasted garlic. Other menu items include Chinese staples: Shanghai rice cakes are tossed with chicken, Napa cabbage and spinach, while scallion pancakes are paired with a bright ginger-soy dipping sauce.

Had never had Dim Sum before -- the soup dumplings were so delicious! We came here for a client lunch and loved it. Left full and satisfied!

One of the best places for Dim Sum, especially their scallion pancake (Can't remember the exact name) but pretty authentic!

A lot of people come to ROC for their xiao long bao, and while I don't find it as good as Din Tai Fung's version, the shrimp and pork option is certainly a treat. Service is friendly and fast, and I've generally enjoyed most dishes I've tried here. It is on the pricy side, though, and portion sizes are a little off.
