I hope you are not too hungry this morning… but I found a great video about dim sum (in case you don’t know what dim sum are, check my post here) that I’d like to share with all my readers that can’t come to Hong Kong to enjoy this great experience.
The South China Morning Post interviewed Tim Ho Wan, which has a Michelin star for its consistently high quality yet very reasonably priced dim sum. Its signature dishes include the char siu pineapple bun (baked barbequed pork bun with a crispy crust) and cheung fan (the rice noodle rolls in soy sauce). You can see those in the video, as well as other classics, including chicken feet, which are not to everyone’s taste – but are believed to have great health benefits.
In case you are in Hong Kong or planning to visit, you should give Tim Ho Wan a try. There are currently three outlets (Mong Kok, Sham Shui Po and Central). I found that the takeaway queue at the restaurant in the IFC mall can be reasonable – so you could pick up some dim sum on the way home or to the airport.
