Hong Kong Mongkok Tim Sum 香港旺角点心

Another dim sum store we tried and would wana recommend. This time in the hawker centre in the heartland of Chinatown where lots of dim sum stores can be found too!

This store is interesting as basically there are only SIX varieties of steamed dim sum sold here, nothing more, nothing less, all sold at flat rate of $2!! (Sounds like a good deal)!
  1. Char Siew Buns
  2. Siew Mai
  3. Har Gao
  4. Steam chicken feet
  5. Prawn Chee Cheong Fan
  6. Char Siew Chee Cheong Fan
This is quite interesting as those with similar queuing system we will be able to order the food first before given a queue number for food collection. So this dim sum store is slightly different.
ALWAYS take a queue number first before ordering, and they will serve you once your number is being called.

Our number! 8 more to go before our turn.

And finally presenting the food we ordered!

"Open-mouth" Char Siew Buns that Picky Girlfriend love! $2 for 3 pieces

Looks very appetizing and in fact tasted very yummy! The char siew buns are very fluffy and comes with generous serving of chunky char siew! The char siew was very well marinated and very very tasty :)

See how generous the filling is!

And also Siew Mai and Har gao!

Again, $2 for 3 pieces!

The Siew Mai and Har gao are HUGE! The Har Gao is really the winner as it comes with both minced prawns and also chunky prawns pieces in them that created a layering texture. The skin is a little thicker and chewy, but overall really worth the $2 :)

Prawn Chee Cheong Fan

Smooth chee cheong fan with generous chunky prawns filling, comes with savory sauce that goes well with the chee cheong fan. They also offer chilli to go with the dim sum, but is more like the chicken rice chilli.

Overall, we love the dim sum at this store! Despite only offering the main 6 dim sum dishes, i think it is really specalisation that made them stand out. And of course at affordable rates too!

Both Picky Girlfriend and Fussy Boyfriend's overall rating for dim sum: 4.25/5

  • There's another dim sum store about 2-3 stores away, so be sure to buy from the right store! :)
