The Joy Luck Palace is a huge dim sum restaurant. It was very crowded with a waiting area full of people. Also people were coming through to pick up orders of take out food. Tables for 2 are often shared as was ours, with 2 older gentlemen. There is no soy sauce, vinegar or hot sauce on the table. Service is by cart and is fairly impersonal. The place got some hype on the internet and was certainly well patronized but overall the offerings were bland and tasteless. We left most of it on the table. Below are pictures of the things we got. The custard bun had gotten a lot of mention as it is known to squirt out the end. I did not find that the case as the interior was mostly solidified and yucky. It was a disappointing sweet entry.
