Dim Sum In Hong Kong (2006-01-25)
We went to Serenade and Mu Dan Ting. The former was within
easy walking distance from our hotel and we'd seen it feature on a
travel show, so we decided to try there. To our surprise they
offered half price on every dim sum from 8 am-12 pm (We arrived at 11
am). The dishes were all great (except the steamed pork bun,
which was OK) and incredibly cheap compared to what we have to pay in
Serenade also offers spectacular harbour view. It is a joy to
eat delicious food while looking out the wall-to-wall windows at
Mu Dan Ting was a fluke for us. We hadn't planned on having
dim sum the day we walked past the building where the restaurant is
housed. A staff was handing out dim sum menu to passersby and
touted free tea charge. So we made an impromptu decision to have
an early lunch there.
To add icing on the cake, we found out that the restaurant also
half price to many dim sum dishes (10 am- 11:45 am), which led me to
think that perhaps it's common practice for Yum Cha restaurants to
offer half priced dim sum for early birds.
The prawn dumplings and steamed beef rice rolls were even better than Serenade's. There were many other dim sum we'd love to have tried but too full to do so. It is often at such moment that I wish we live in Hong Kong.
