Dim Sum Dreams
Lin Heung Kui
2-3/F, 46-50 Des Voeux Rd. W., Sheung Wan, Hong Kong; 852-2156-9328
Crazy for dim sum? A day in Hong Kong may make you think you’ve died and gone to heaven. There are fabulous dim sum parlors of every stripe around the city, but one of the best is Lin Heung Kui, where the wait staff wear starched uniforms, the tea is served from grand brass kettles, and the food still arrives on rolling carts. Come hungry and ready to try a mix of Cantonese and Guangzhou classics, like sticky rice with chicken, pork and lotus leaf and dan siu mai, dumplings topped with quail egg.
Ready for something different? Follow your nose to Des Voeux Road West, Hong Kong’s legendary “Dried Seafood Street.” Lined with stalls hawking crispy red mullet, miniature shrimp, rare shark fins, sea cucumbers and more, this is ground zero for the pungent delicacies that are a key flavoring agent in traditional Chinese cuisine. These strange wares may not look like much, but some are literal treasures—like the preserved fish maws from Africa’s Lake Victoria that are valued at upwards of $1,300 a pound.
