Mongkok Dim Sum @East Coast

After a really dissatisfying dinner, we decided to stroll around to make some space for another meal :p

Mongkok Dim Sum caught our attention with steam bellowing out within their glass windows.

Dim sum!! And so we made the decision to cross the road :p

Luk Yu Teahouse & Restaurant @Chinatown Point

They brand their own cutlery

They brand their own cutlery

At the area for a Saturday morning meeting and decided to reward myself with some dim sum!

Being a rather hot day, we decided to try Luk Yu Teahouse & Restaurant at Chinatown Point, which is air-conditioned.

We have tried the Luk Yu Teahouse & Restaurant in Hong Kong but this is apparently not affiliated whatsoever with them. This one in Singapore is under the Swatow Seafood Group of restaurants (there’s another branch in ION).

The deco is distinctively oriental with waiters and waitresses wearing oriental uniforms. They were also quite upmarket with their own set of cutlery down to the sauce dispenser.

Swee Choon Tim Sum 瑞春点心 @Jalan Besar

Popular place for dim sum

Popular place for dim sum

The restaurant opened swiftly at 6pm and many tables were already filled! But the restaurant is huge and we got a table and seats at a corner of the air-con room.

There are also seats that do not have air-con and there’s also a long queue for takeaways. We were just glad we were here when they opened or we might have to have a long wait too!

The internal decoration is typical Chinese-style with Chinese paintings lining the walls. To order, we just need to tick our selections on the menu and a waitress will put in our order to the kitchen.

What we liked about Swee Choon is they put the number of pieces per serving so we know exactly what (and how much) we are getting. Neat! 🙂

Hong Kong 2014 Day 3

2014-03-08 09.56.21Happy Women’s Day!! Today, we left our rooms much later than planned (because it’s gonna be a long long day!), and headed straight to One Dim Sum 一點心 near the hotel, because we have read good reviews about it (and also because we didn’t had enough of dim sum)!

One Dim Sum is the other One-Star Michelin dim sum place that doesn’t break your wallet (the more famous one is of course Tim Ho Wan 添好運). It opens daily from 11am on weekdays and 10am on weekends. Right from the moment it opens (in fact probably before it opens), a long queue would be formed. Waitresses will start handing out waiting numbers and number of pax on a piece of paper, and the big wait will begin. The restaurant has big glass windows so those waiting can drool on those eating. 🙂

Hong Kong 2014 Day 1

The prelude:

2014-03-06 08.22.20-1

This was a rather spur-of-the-moment kind of a trip, where the Whatsapp conversation basically went…

  • Me: Scoot having $20 one way ticket sale today and tomorrow.
  • Ms. W: Oooo go where?
  • Me: Got HK, China, Australia.
  • Ms. W: Where u like? U interested?
  • Me: Huh? I all like? Lol
  • Ms. W: Then must chop chop make decision liao.

And so, in less than 3 hours, we booked tickets for 5 pax, including Ms. Y, who first announced that she could make it, and then asked where we were going and who were going -_-”

We also decided to stay at Royal Plaza Hotel 帝京酒店 since it was rather difficult to find big rooms for 3 pax and we had a good experience with this hotel previously.

Victor’s Kitchen @Sunshine Plaza

Busy from open to close

Busy from open to close

It’s an early Sunday and we were due for an Escape Game at Prinsep Street so we came earlier for a dim sum brunch!

Victor’s Kitchen has been in business for a long while and has been on many Must-Eat list also for a long while. It’s tugged in a little corner of Sunshine Plaza, and the stall floor space is not too large either. We counted close to 8 tables arranged in a school tuck shop style and diners are expected to share table (搭檯) like in Hong Kong.

There was already a queue formed when we reached around 10:15am (they open at 10:30am). The auntie let us in 5mins earlier but did not switch on the lights. She also cautioned some diners to lower their volume. Not sure if she broke any ‘rules’ by letting the diners into the stall early.

So we came here after our leisurely stroll at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve 🙂 on this bright Sunday morning!

Tim Ho Wan 添好運 @ERA Centre

New branch at Toa Payoh

New branch at Toa Payoh

Simple decor but great food

Simple decor but great food

It’s Tim Ho Wan @Toa Payoh this time! In case you didn’t know, Tim Ho Wan is Hong Kong’s most famous dim sum restaurant because it is one of the cheapest One-Star Michelin restaurant in the world!

We discovered that it was finally opened to public yesterday (8 Sep 2013), so we decided to just pop over to see what’s the crowd like! The queue was not too bad, considering we got seats within 30min, close to 8pm. That was also because there were only 2 of us; bigger groups had to wait longer for a bigger empty table. They also placed stools outside the restaurant so we can just sit, chat and wait.
