After a long week, sometimes all we want is to swan dive into a large supply of dim sum. But on the days when we don’t feel like waiting in traffic on the 10 to get to SGV, Ixlb comes to the rescue. Everything here, from har gow to shumai, is made fresh daily and satisfies any dim sum craving imaginable (though they sadly don’t serve chicken feet). The translucent har gow have a bouncy skin and are filled with plump shrimp while the egg tarts have a nice and flaky crust, but you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Ixlb primarily does takeout and delivery, but there is a tiny dining area with counter seating for those who can’t wait to get home to eat.
