A relatively new kid on the block, we decided to satisfy our dim sum cravings here!
Our first impressions was that this was a kids-friendly restaurant, as there were corner bumpers at all tables. The other 2 groups of customers all had kids in tow. Food started arriving within 10 minutes upon ordering.
Established brand in Hong Kong
We stepped foot on Hong Kong again!
Our last trip here was Mar 2014 (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3) and we were Scooting early into HK again this time!
We touched down at 6am, and took no time to breeze through the custom and immigration (since we have no checked-in luggage), bought Octopus Cards, took Airport Express, and changed to MTR! By 7:16am we were already at The Mercer Hong Kong dropping our backpacks as we started off with our first day at the land of dim sums!
Lin Heung Tea House 蓮香樓 is very near the hotel, and we reached at 7:25am but the place was already packed with the morning crowd, especially when it opens it’s doors from 6am everyday!
New branch at Toa Payoh
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.
