Ocean Star Restaurant-Closed
Ocean Star Restaurant
145 N Atlantic Blvd
After getting some dim sum to go from Capital BBQ & Dim Sum Express, I went across Atlantic Blvd and went to Ocean Star. A huge restaurant on the second floor, I can imagine how busy they are on the weekends.
The weekday dim sum had the ladies with the carts full of dim sum walking around. You pick what items you want and they will stamp your ticket.
All these items are $1.68, expect the lobster e-mein, which was $12.
Shrimp har gow. The inside was very flavorful. But, eating the inside was like eating gummy bears. Very gummy and chewy.
Service was good, but the sui mai cart only came around once during my visit! Not sure why, because sui mai is one of the most popular dim sum dishes.
I wasn't that impressed with the dim at Ocean Star. But, the lobster e-mien is a steal, and a bit more seasoning would have made it a very good dish.
