I came to Jasmine Seafood Restaurant straight from the airport on my recent holiday in San Diego. I’m generally not a fan of dim sum because eating greasy meat in the morning feels so wrong. Thankfully on this occasion I was still on East Coast time (12 PM PST/3 PM EST), so I was totally game.

Jasmine was packed at lunch time even though it was a Thursday. Ladies pushing carts circled the noisy banquet room. Oh, how I love chaotic dim sum experiences!

I was dining with ten or so family members so we ordered a lot of food (see above). Our first order was the fried octopus, which was SO tasty. The fruits of the sea have such great texture! The rest of the ordering was a bit of a blur. I especially enjoyed the beef rice rolls, which is my all-time favorite dim sum dish. I also thought the pot stickers and stuffed tofu skins were exceptional.

I think I need to get over my “meat in the morning” complex because dim sum at Jasmine was delicious!

  1. Hi I googled Jasmine Seafood Restaurant and found your blog! I was just wondering between Emerald Seafood, Jasmine Seafood, and Pearl Chinese Cuisine which you thought were the best? I am having a destination wedding in San Diego and I want a traditional Chinese wedding banquet! But since I’m not around it is hard for me to figure out what is the best location, best food, best price!

    Thank you!

  2. Melissa – Food-wise, I’d rank Jasmine first, then Pearl, then Emerald. Ambiance-wise, Pearl, then Jasmine, then Emerald. Pearl is prettiest. Jasmine is tastiest. Good luck!
