You’ll find no dainty sandwiches or fancy silver platters when you arrive for teatime at a Chinese restaurant. Instead, teatime means carts of dim sum—steaming-hot dumplings and other small plates that you can usually order, quite literally, à la carte. There's no arguing that this Chinese take on brunch has caught on in LA, and it's not hard to understand why: the _Los Angeles Times_ estimates that as many as a quarter of a million people of Chinese ancestry live in and around the city.

True to this adopted American tradition, LA offers diverse options for hangover-easing eats, from healthy tofu scrambles to decadent, dessert-like dishes.Read More
