Lin Heung Tea House(Dim Sum), Hong Kong

Dim Sum is one of the food that in my HKG must-try list. Before I go Hong Kong, check out few websites to look for an authentic Hong Kong yum cha place, and I saw Precious Pea recommended Lin Heong Tea House.
We took this dim sum before we heading to Disneyland since we have to take MTR from Central station where this tea house is located.

First come with Char Siew Pau ( I forgot to order their famous chicken bun as I totally forgot this hot item), anyway, this is the best Char Siew Pau I ever had, very nice.

Kids requested to order this sweet type of kuih, normal only..

"Mar Lai" kuih, quite good, but I still prefer the "Gula Melaka" type which selling in wet market here

Thinking to try the usual Sui Mai, Har Kau &etc, but we did not see the aunties pushing trolley with all these items, no choice, we just grapped this Teochew style of kuih, and to our surprise, this was delicious !!!

Finally we realized that we have to run to those aunties and take the famous dim sum by ourself, do not wait for them to pushing the trolley to your table as this will not happen..

"Chee Cheong Fun" with just added some light soy sauce, a bit plain, and the skin is not as "Q" as like those we take in Dim Sum restaurant here, also without sambal dried prawn which is my favorite, quite normal..

This is good, meat and prawn wrapped with beancurd sheet.

I did not have chance to try my favorite black bean pork ribs, Har Kau & etc as we need to heading to the Disneyland. If I have chance to visit Hong Kong again, I must come to this tea house again to try my favorite dim sum. This is certainly a good place to try authentic Hong Kong dim sum.

Dim sum is one of my favourite...

Sonia said...

Mia, yes, you are the first. but no dim sum here, you have to go HKG to take your own dim sum, hahaha..I wanted Har kau, but waited for too long, and give up due to running out of time.

Palidor, actually they are not that big, only photo effect..

somewhere in Singapore, me too.
