A trip to Hong Kong would not be complete without some dim sum, and this time, I tried out a couple different experiences. I went for old fashioned traditional dim sum at Lin Heung Tea House and then for fancy luxury dim sum at Yan Toh Heen.

I love traditional but wow does the luxury place look wonderful. I have to suffer along with my pork and shrimp pot stickers and custom dipping sauce of my own making. Theres not a decent dim sum place within 250 miles so Im on my own. As soon as it cools off and my herb garden takes off its time for home made Pho.

Second chick has the ultimate job. Getting paid to go on a strictly dinner only date at the most expensive dim sum place in the city as a guide and eating for free. I would assume, if possible, a happy ending would be considerably extra but I doubt it. However I bet she knows where to advise her customers to go for that service should they desire.

I have seen this chick, traditional place, times before and she is a fantastic foodie guide and well worth the hire considering how much it costs to get there. To not hire her services would be foolish.

Virginia is so pretty and so adorable! Thanks for your tips on Dim Sum, and love ya Mikey as always! Love the exquisitely beautiful Aiko as well. Such a sweetie. Love that she is so delicate and sophisticated, but still will devour those dim sum like a savage! You always have the coolest friends! I cannot get over the view from the harbor outside and outside of your hotel. That is just where you want to spend your life moments. My gosh! Breathtaking.

Too many requirements for that first place I'd be tossed out lmao
Aiko's accent is so cute. You can tell she's one of the "High Class" cantonese, just from the accent alone. Reminds you quite a lot of British Colonial Hegemony of the city, "civilizing" the people there.

How are you not able to taste tea? All tea has its own flavor. Or is that just me? I love trying different teas as it is a whole new world of flavor. I had a nice taiwanese green tea that even though there is not mint in it it has a slight minty after flavor. Almost like I was eating a wintergreen flavored mint and breathed in. I loved it. The stronger they brew it the tastier it is.

I've been to these places (and a few other ) in HK and to be honest, fancy dimsum is in some way silly. The fancy really comes from the more elegant look and extra finesse in making the item. Taste-wise, the difference is really insignificant.

next time when you get dim sum, i highly recommend you get tau foo fah. It's one of my favorite dim sum deserts.

unfortunately in Hong Kong I've never seen tau foo fah served at dim sum places. They'll serve it at specialty dessert shops though. I feel like when I'm in the US i see that a lot, though.

The food in Hong Kong might be among the best in Asia but the restaurant culture doesn’t make it worth it for me. Fighting for seats and basic service? Yeah, bye.

The girls are very interesting. Did they grow up in the US? i much prefer something in the middle when it comes to dimsum places. no fighting for food or table is preferred , and no need for something so fancy as the luxury place.
