Fu Sing Sharks Fin Seafood Restaurant

Fu Sing, you have my heart. Their deep fried tofu cubes are... amazing. Their XO sauce Cheung Fun are my favourites... and those two items alone keep me coming back for more! Dom loves their Boh Loh Cha Siu Bao (Char Siu Bun that’s baked). Come on weekends - they don’t serve many types of Dim Sum on weekdays!!

Maxim's Palace Chinese Restaurant (Central)

My absolute favourite place. Only downside is that you can’t make reservations in advance. But this is possibly the last remaining push cart Dim Sum locations in Hong Kong, although certainly the largest. There’s something to be said about the nostalgia, and the excitement of instant gratification - I see, I eat, I conquer.

Solid. Straight up solid. And frankly, for their quality, it’s worth it. You can make reservations, it’s convenient, it’s easy, you can park at IFC, service is good... nothing bad to say about it really! And a Michelin star to boot!

Tim Ho Wan (Sham Shui Po)

Ok. So this is the first ever location of Tim Ho Wan. Open all evening for dim sum, and hella cheap. Clean freaks will not like it. It’s hot, a little stinky, and service is rude, curt, and impatient. But hey, one Michelin star, novelty, a true example of HK’s local of the local dim sum scenes, and the rushed impatient culture. What’s not to love?

Apparently the dim sum is amazing here, but unfortunately I’m a poor unfortunate soul. Try it for me? Tell me how it is?

Tong Kee Bao Dim

Hong Kong, China • Recommendation • 

I had no idea this place was a FRANCHISE! I was quite hungry (looking for a panini actually, thinking to head to panini gusto) then I saw this random place around the corner (actually right on LKF) and decided to try it out because I love Bao. And wow. The bread was SO SOFT and SO YUMMY and it reminded me of Taiwan. I had the 菜肉包 (Choi yuk bao - vegetable and pork bao) and it was so good. HK$5.5 each, HK$15 for 3. Egg custard one isn’t great. My only regret is not buying more. But I’m so happy this exists! Best Bao bread in Hong Kong. Or it just hits the spot perfectly. Name is: 唐記包點 Tong Kee Bao Dim

💸 <— my feelings when HK is filled with Dim Sum places that hit the spot. It’s on my bucket list though, because I want to know what the fuss is about. According to @elzouille it’s been full for 7 years straight, and yes it’s true too that I have pretty much never been able to book it.

Tsui Hang Village

Hong Kong, China • Recommendation • 

Good Dim Sum, convenient location, feels a bit dingy with low ceilings and maybe in need of a renovation. You have to go through many narrow corridors to get to the main restaurant area, and it’s very local in the style of service. Don’t expect stunning ambience. But the food will be at a good standard. (Not the best I’ve had but good enough to hit the spot).
