By the time check-in settled, it’s already 3pm! Stomach had been screaming out for food, following instruction of the hotel’ s receptionist, we managed to locate the nearest restaurant situated within the same building (China Hong Kong City 中港城,the building at Tsim Sha Shui selling ferry ticket to Macau) as our hotel for dim sum.
The name of the restaurant is called 帝廷皇宮（尖沙咀店）, belongs to King of the King Group.
Imitating magnificent ambience of the western palace, the restaurant was deliberately decorated with plenty of chandeliers and ceiling paintings. Apparently, wedding banquet is their core business while dim sum business is just a side income. Xiu Mai 烧卖, Cha Xiu Bao(Barbeque pork bun叉烧包), ,Chee Cheong fun (rice noodle roll 腸粉), Feng Zhao (Chicken Feet 凤爪), steamed sparerib 蒸排骨....these were the basic dim sum we used to consume in any dim sum eateries and would never fail to order !“Glutinous rice & custard bun 奶皇流沙包, sound good, 2 ticks for that…” Trust me, they were OISHII especially the oozing custard, very different from those found in Malaysia!Can you see that? Our big round table piled up with heaps of steamer baskets....Wow!
Not sure if it’s true that hunger increases ability to taste, all of us actually gave a THUMB UP for the dim sum.
When called for "Mai Dan 埋单”(literally asking for bill)....
Let’s make a blind guess, how much it may possibly cost with more than 20 steamer baskets on the table!!???
HKD480!!! Incredibly CHEAP huh!!??
Later we learnt that the restaurant was actually running a promotion with each dim sum selling HKD 14.88, no wonder! ;-)
