The best dim sum in Hong Kong
Elsewhere you probably just brunch – in Hong Kong we brunch and we dim sum on the weekends (or any other time we fancy for that matter). Long leisurely work-day lunches and Sunday afternoons are spent lounging around with bottomless pots of tea, we suggest the pu’erh or oolong to help with the feasting to come, plenty of steamed baos, dumplings, rice rolls and other traditional Chinese delicacies. Be it heavily guarded by bodyguards at the entrance or more local spots where you have to fight for your food, Hong Kong has the best variety of dim sum restaurants in the world. Here’s our selection of the best:
Tyfun is one of the newest dim sum restaurants to hit the scene. Following in Yum Cha’s footsteps (see below), Tyfun offers traditional Cantonese dishes including adorable chicken and mushroom buns shaped like pandas, glutinous rice dumplings stuffed with pork that look like carrots, goldfish dumplings and more. The design is sleek and they also boast an impressive cocktail menu if you’re looking for a drink with a side of dumplings after work.
