This has got to be the cheapest Michelin Starred eatery anywhere. It is essentially a small dim sum cafe in a shopping centre but don't let that put you off. You will have to queue to get in (we waited about 30 mins) and the...More

It can be intimidating as a first time visitor to Hong Kong to dive into the local food scene, but Tim Ho Wan has some awesome Dim Sum and allows you to eat Chinese style (shared tables). This chain has locations all around the island...More

I loved the pork bun and the sticky rice. However, for the rest, I think the food was good. Of course, it's better than what I have in my country, since the ingredients are pretty much fresher, but I think you can go to another...More
