Best Dim Sum Hong Kong
Maxim’s Palace City Hall
This Central institution is grand, packed and the epitome of the yum cha experience. Hot bamboo steamers stacked on top of each other are rolled out on metal trolleys zig-zagging across the room. If you don’t see what you want, wave down one of the servers and they might be able to secure your dish straight from the kitchen. Because Maxim’s is such a popular establishment, be prepared to queue during lunch hours and weekends.
2/F, Low Block, City Hall, 5 Edinburgh Place, Central, 2521-1303.
The Square is a spacious venue on the fourth floor of Two Exchange Square, and has been a Michelin Guide favorite for years. Their dim sum menu is long and comprehensive, and you’ll be able to find the staple steamed beef balls and dumplings as well as larger dishes like fried noodles and suckling pig with rice crackers.
4/F, Two Exchange Square, 8 Connaught Place, Central, 2525-1163.
If you’re looking for dim sum in a slightly fancier setting without breaking the bank, the Japan-originated Heichinrou would be a good bet. The har gau dumplings are neatly pleated, the spring rolls are perfectly symmetrical, and the portions are generally more delicate (read: smaller).
Multiple locations, including G-1/F, Nexxus Building, 41 Connaught Rd. Central, 2868-9229.
This failsafe chain has speedy service, plenty of tables at its many locations, and all the dim sum dishes you would want to order. There are also plenty of braised, roasted and steamed seafood and poultry specialties available for order.
Multiple locations, including 1-2/F, Golden Centre, 188 Des Voeux Rd. Central, Sheung Wan, 2851-3381.
This age-old institution has recently undergone a revamp, and gone are the palm trees—replaced by sophisticated carpets, tasteful artwork on the walls and dark and handsome furniture. Their famous lipsmacking char siu is still on the menu, complete with the perfect lean-to-fat ratio.
