Har Kau! Siew Mai! Yu Chee Kau! Ma Lai Ko! Cheung Fun! Char Siew Pau!. Those are the items we kept hearing the moment we stepped into this dim sum restaurant.

Wow, hearing these names and coupled with the aroma and fragrance of Hong Kong dim sum diffusing into our senses had us flashing the various dim sum even before we seated. We were so excited and could not wait to eat and eat and eat!

Once we settled down, we quickly had plates and reels of dim sum snacks spread out on our table.

Yummie, the sight of these mouth watering dim sum really had us drooling our saliva waiting to feast on them. It was a moment of elation and ecstatic that we finally had these dim sum right before our eyes.

Har Kau was bigger in size with each bigger than our 50 cents coin and the inside each Har Kau contained few pieces of shrimps. One thing we liked about the Har Kau was the shrimps had their intestines removed (the black lines at the back of the shrimp), giving the impression of nicer presentation not just outside but also inside the filling.

We were impressed with the effort taken to make the dish as best as they could.

Siew Mai was also bigger in size and relatively the same as Har Kau. The pork used was quite elastic and tender. This Siew Mai is so far the best we have tasted compared to the ones we had in Penang or KL. Even the skin did not harden so fast despite us dining in air conditioned room.

The century egg porridge was another thrill we enjoyed as well. The portions of century eggs had been quite generous that we had not just one but a few eggs within a bowl! And the best thing was, each egg was cut into 4 pieces and not into small pieces we have here.

That means you can actually eat the century egg satisfyingly as you put each spoonful into your mouth. Besides, the proportion of ingredients to porridge is almost equal; this means every spoon of porridge contained ingredients. Sounds delicious eh? Well, we’re not done yet :P

Other dishes we tried as well were chicken feet, char siew pau, char siew soh, spring roll, lor mai kai, egg tart, mango pudding and mango mochi.

The last two desserts were worth elaborating more. The mango pudding was very smooth and contained bits of mango inside. It also came with evaporated milk. Whether you add milk or not, the pudding tasted quite appetizing.

As for the mochi, it is coated with crated coconuts outside and had slice on mango inside as filling. This is rather a wonderful creation of mango mochi.

Eating dim sum in Hong Kong itself is a wonderful experience and a lasting impression that we were beginning to give local dim sum a second thought. It was just an unbeatable experience~!

Awww… how we missed the Hong Kong dim sum again.

    The last time I went to HK for dim sum, I notice that no matter which restaurant I went, we always kena tumpang ppl's table. And the waiter or waitress do work so fast till need to semi fly the plate to you.

    But who cares ... foods was fantastic especially the HAR KAU like Tam Ciak said.

    thanks! then dimsum is definitely on my list of MUST-try? but slightly pricier than Malaysia's offerings, am I right?

    funny I realize HK likes to incorporate mango into their desserts, huh?

    J2Kfm,

    Yes, the dim sum in HK are pricier than in M'sia but the portion is also bigger and more ingredients. I would say the money is worth spending although the conversion rate may make surprise you initially... :)

    When you're in HK, it's something you don't want to miss~!!

    The name of the restaurant is "London Restaurant", in Cantonese "Lun Dun Tai Cau Lau".

    No worry if you can't read chinese. Just remember the sign. :) Also, we'll be putting the map up as well soon to show the exact location. So you'll know where to go ;)

    Damn !! Dim Sum is one my favourite lar !! I love "wu kok" very much.

    I tried "Hong Kee" in Selangor, very nice. "Hong Kee" have a lot of branch around Klang Valley also.

    I'm hungry right now..=.="

    O yes, my aunty told me before this restaurant was one of the famous dim sum. Hope one day I can reach there….

     
  22. Penang Tua Pui |

    Make Money From Home,

    The Wu Kok there was also different from ours, the crust is not hard but quite soft. It was just hard enough to hold the fillings inside but once you bite it... it crumbled... Mmmm......
