We had a mini-GTG of Fodorites for Dim Sum ( 點心 ) at the Ocean Palace Restaurant on Bellaire Blvd. I brought my parents along for the gathering. Present were:

Mel and Sandi (MSheinberg)
Stacey (moldyhotelsaregross)
Don (dfr4848)
Paula (sarge56)
My parents and I (rkkwan)

I ordered the most traditional dim sum dishes, and seems like everybody enjoyed them. And it was extremely affordable - we paid $11 each, tips included.
