Hong Kong Dim Sum Special – Luk Yu Tea House 陸羽茶室

By , March 13, 2014

Traditional Hong Kong Tea House
For a taste of old traditional Hong Kong tea house, Luk Yu that has been opened since 1933 would be a perfect backdrop. You almost feel that you are entering a Cantonese movie set, with the elderly service staff dressed in white urging to order Chinese tea.

Dim sum are about HK$40 per basket, with the usual recommendations including steamed rice with duck meat wrapped in fresh lotus leaves, deep-fried Chinese ham-and-chicken meat pie, and jumbo-size chicken bun.

I say you can come here if you want to experience old Hong Kong, without the madness of Lin Heung a 10 minute walk away.

Hong Kong Dim Sum Special – Cuisine Cuisine 國金軒

By , March 12, 2014

Nouvelle Cantonese Styles
Cuisine Cuisine, located at one of my favourite hotels in Hong Kong at The Mira, has a different take to dim sum – with a mix of traditional and nouvelle Cantonese styles, and taste is not compromised.

The restaurant is sleek classy in emerald green, suitable for business lunches as well.

The Pan Fried Turnip Cakes with Parma Ham and Prawns in XO Chilli Sauce (H$68) is one of the best and most memorable I ever eaten (plus it’s photogenic), and its Steamed Wild Mushroom and Black Truffle Dumplings, Baked Barbecued Pork Buns (HK$58 for 3 pieces) and Shanghai Steamed Xiao Long Bao (HK$48) are all made delicately, are rich and of high quality.

3 Star Michelin
Lung King Heen at Four Seasons Hotel is the world’s first Chinese restaurant and the only Cantonese restaurant in Hong Kong awarded the coveted maximum of 3 Michelin stars.

With a name that means “view of the dragon”, it almost feels that you are walking into a palace with an open dining hall offering a panorama of the Victoria Harbour.

Executive Chef Chan Yan Tak does an amazing job with creating menus serving exquisite delicate dim sum, with popular items including Steamed Lobster and Scallop Dumpling, Baked Whole Abalone Puff with Diced Chicken and Steamed Shrimp and Pork Dumplings with Crab Roe.

Be prepared to pay at least 3-4 more than the usual dim sum restaurants. (Read: Lung King Heen 龍景軒)

Highest in the World
The view literally stole my breath away, the food did too. Located on Level 102 of the Ritz Carlton, the 2-star Michelin restaurant is dramatically elegant with a picturesque view. Service is top-notch gentlemanly.

Chef Paul Lau Ping Lui is one of the top Cantonese chefs in Hong Kong, and items such as the Steamed Golden Shrimp Dumplings with Bambo Shoots and Asparagus (HK$86), Baked Abalone Puffs with Roasted Goose (HK$116), Foie Gras Dumplings wrapped with Shredded Pastry (HK$78), and famed Iberico Pork BBQ Char Siu (HK$268) are must-tries. Price is on the very high side too.

Hong Kong Dim Sum Special – Sun Tung Lok 新同樂

By , March 6, 2014

Daniel’s Food Diary Personal Favourite
Sun Tung Lok is the 1st non-hotel eatery and 2nd Chinese restaurant in Hong Kong to receive 3 Michelin stars (the first being Lung King Heen).

The restaurant founded in 1969 is surprisingly off-the-radar, at least to Singaporeans. I didn’t get the sense of super glamour and magnificence upon enter the restaurant, which could imply their food surely impresses.

Their creations strike a balance between being traditional in taste and innovative in terms of choice of ingredients. Every dim sum item I ordered was remarkable and a stamp of high quality.

The Royal Dessert Platter (HK$188 serves 2) has the most amazing Salted Custard Bird Nest Glutinous Rice Balls and Osmathus Jelly.
