Loud, crowded, and hectic--those are the defining characteristics of a classic dim sum experience. In Orange County, dim sum is either purely Cantonese or Vietnamese-influenced in preparation, but you'll always find classic shumai (pork dumplings), har gow (and shrimp wrapped in translucent dough), and chicken feet served from carts. Whether you're craving dumplings or want a vibrant brunch environment to wake you up, here are ten places that'll give you just that.

10. Furiwa (Garden Grove)

In the same complex as the original Boiling Crab is Furiwa--half-dim sum restaurant and half-wedding venue. The great thing about Furiwa is how large it is, which means you'll rarely have to wait too long to get in. Classic dim sum items like har gow, shumai, and shrimp rolls are abundant here, as well as non-dim sum items like lobster and walnut shrimp.

Don't let the fancy interior of J Zhou Oriental fool you. At its core, it's a simple dim sum restaurant just like the other ones on this list--a haven of bite-sized dumplings and small plates of savory meat. The only difference is that instead of picking out dishes from carts, you order them from the server here.
