For lunch today, my sister recommended Empress Seafood Restaurant for us to try. Servers carted around food trays around the restaurant stopping at each table offering customers to choose dishes.
The food was okay they did not come up to the quality and wide selection available at a couple of our favorite dim sum restaurants in Honolulu Chinatown.
Today's weather in Southern California was absolutely beautiful. We saw a Goodyear blimp in the smog free sky.
