This is definitely my favorite spot in Hong Kong for dim sum. I would recommend their steamed pork buns, and their steamed shrimp dumplings.

hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of

You may need to ask people once you get there since you have to go up some escalators and they were somewhat confusing. However, any of the shop attendants can help you. Mainly look for the food arcade at the Hong Kong... More
