First meal in Hong Kong, how can it not be Dim Sum?! We were so determined to have 添好運 that we braved the walking from our apartment to Olympian City with our empty tummy to have a heavy and satisfied meal.
Like Singapore, we had to Q for it but unlike Singapore, for a group of 7, we got a table pretty fast!
Order of round 1. Already ~HK$600.
Most of the items are what we have in Singapore.
The STAR of the meal is definitely Baked Bun with BBQ Pork. If you love the Singapore’s version, you would seriously feels like you are in heaven with the Hong Kong’s version. The bun is a bit more crispier and thinner and the taste of the filling is also better. We could not have enough of this.
Singapore vs Hong Kong? Hong Kong wins again. Texture are comparable but taste-wise, this has a better caramelized fragrance that Singapore’s lacks. It’s that little tiny things that counts.
Normal. But still satisfying.
Another must have for dim sum. This must had been good because I remembered we ordered more of this for our second round.
This is our Osmanthus jelly. A good sweet end to the meal. It’s tasty! And they were really generous with the ‘gou qi zi’ (枸杞子) and osmanthus flower. But we were all too full to have another bite. Imagine trying to finish 3 pieces between the 6 of us. We were that FULL!
Table-full of items! The staffs had to clear our table continuously in order to bring us our orders.
So which version is better?
There’s hits and misses. I guess generally our preference are different. I wouldn’t mind either. But it’s much cheaper to satisfied our tummies in Hong Kong than locally. ~SG$100 can feed 5pax in Singapore while it can well feed 7pax in Hong Kong.
But the BBQ Pork Bun at Hong Kong is really something to try. Super yum yum.
