Eat Dim Sums in Hong Kong

In ancient Chinese custom, it was considered inappropriate to mix tea with food. Once, a famous 3rd-century Imperial physician claimed that this would lead to excessive weight gain. As they found out that tea has the ability to aid in digestion and cleanse the palate, tea house proprietors began adding a variety of snacks, and the tradition of  Dim sum was born.

There are also snack-sized portions of pan-fried, deep-fried, and baked foods served in bamboo containers, which are designed to be eaten communally and washed down with tea. Therefore going for  Dim sum is sometimes referred to as yum cha, which means drinking tea, and together completes a full tea brunch. When it comes to snacking in Hong Kong, Dim sums are the first thing that comes in mind.

Still, it took several centuries for the culinary art of Dim sum to develop. Today,  Dim sum is served throughout China. But, the best  chefs for this snack are found not in China, but in Hong Kong. These days, this snack  itself is a main player on the culinary stage.

The diversity and a sheer number of Hong Kong Dim sum restaurants are stunning. From noisy Cantonese joints with madness in the air to hushed dining rooms where waiters anticipate your every move. Today, most restaurants have dispensed with the cart system. Instead, when you are first seated the waitress will hand you a menu and you use a pencil to mark off, which items you want and the number of orders.

What to order-

Deep-fried shrimp dumpling:

It’s made with shrimp, sometimes with pork fat, wrapped in dough and deep fried. Crispy exterior, juicy filling! Perfect Ecstasy.

Barbecued pork bun:

These are tender, sweet, slow-roasted pork tenderloin, usually seasoned with oyster sauce, and encased in a fine, soft bun. A must have when in Hong Kong.

Steamed shrimp dumpling:

Shrimp wrapped in a thinly rolled piece of translucent wheat dough. Often, the dumpling will include a small amount of finely chopped bamboo shoots and pork.

Siu Mai:

A type of Chinese dumpling. The typical Cantonese Dim sum which has a lot of variety consisting of ground pork, shiitake mushrooms, green onions and ginger, wrapped in thin wheat dough, seasoned with Chinese rice wine, soy sauce, and garnished with a dollop of crab roe.

Spring rolls:

It is a variety of vegetables and sometimes meat ingredients which are rolled inside a sheet of thin dough and deep fried.

Cheung fan:

A thin roll of rice flour, filled with shrimp, beef, sweet barbecued pork or other ingredients. It is usually steamed and served with soy sauce.

      Thanks Traveltriangle for planning a nice trip for my brother. Hotels and other services provided were also very good. Although last minute cancellation for Macau Beach tour/buggy ride without any proper justification was quite disappointing, alternative was also provided after doing follow-up. The itinerary which was cancelled costed more and a less expensive ones were offered against cancellation.

      Overall a good experience from Holiday Tringle. About local travel agent, they need to change attitude from handling indian tourists to global tourists. There was less regard to timing and i had to complaint to holiday triengle. After that, things went fine. Overall, car quality was good. Drivers were good but we found rough attitude from couple of drivers and i had to pass my experience through other driver. I spoke to their manager mr. Sunny once and he sounded blaming me for complaining, i had to be tough with him. His attitude was like ' aisa to chalta raheta he'. For people like me who has travelled the world for last 26 years, i can not accept such behaviour. But after my complaint to holiday triangle, i got immediate response and things went fine. I am happy with service from Holiday Triengle.

      The cab driver's behaviour was rude during the first day visit at Hong Kong. Overall trip was good with luxurious hotels but difficult for vegetarians to find an Indian restaurant esp in Macau. Return transfer from Hong Kong hotel to Hong Kong Airport terminal 1 should be included in the itenary.

      Regarding the Hong Kong trip except the hotel , everything was well managed . The hotel room was very cosy and they used to charge for a cup of milk. Room was not equipped with microwave. The good part was it is very close to metro and other departmental store and one Indian restaurant Tulsi was 5 mins walk.The hotel breakfast was very basic and almost the same menu for 4 days
