I had to mention The Capitol Tea Garden in Sacramento, mainly because this is a favorite hangout for my soon-to-be-wife and me. If you like Dim Sum (or want to be schooled on what it is), you can’t do much better than this place. If you’re ever wandering around hungry in Sac, head to 10th and T streets. For under $10, you can stuff yourself silly on some of the best chow you’ve had in a while. The place is really very cool.

Beware, though, and note that this is one of the few good Chinese places in that part of town (that don’t have ‘Kitty Chow Mein’ on the menu).
