Welcome to Hong Kong week everyone! I took yesterday to sit down and arrange all my pictures. Actually it wasn’t a lot but you know, time is scarce and all that. So, let’s start!
Leaving on June 2nd and with a transfer in Vancouver, I arrived in Hong Kong a tad earlier than scheduled. Taking it easy on the first night, I went to bed early and ended up waking up a few times. Its normal for jetlag. It is a 12 hour difference. Waking up early also means that my aunt, my mom and I went out to eat dim sum for breakfast at this restaurant called Yuet Hin.
I love Dim sum in Hong Kong. I don’t eat it in Montreal so when I go there, I’m very enthusiastic to try it all the time.
Yuet Hin was my aunt’s recommendation and it has some very nice twists and somewhat Asian fusion style in its menu. Its located in Tai Wai. Here’s what we ordered for breakfast.
Let me tell you: this place is so good. The best is that fried rice there. Its actually Fried rice in Taiwanese style. Plus, I was never much of a congee person but man, that one was so delicious 🙂
Yuet Hin was such a delight that we went back the day that I left for breakfast dim sum again and tried some more dishes.
On the second time, we had one of my mom’s friends who live nearby joining us so we ordered more food. I’d have to say that they do have really crunch dough fritters rolls. Those are absolutely amazing. The Teochew dumplings are quite tasty as well. I’m always a huge fan of dumplings and this one was very good.
Yuet Hin is a winner for me. Its a really good restaurant. There is one little downside to it and that happens sometimes in Hong Kong restaurants is that you get seated with other people on a big table in order to increase the flow of business. It might bother some people as you end up dining with strangers in a way. However, it is part of the experience.
Do you like dim sum? Have you tried any of these dishes before?
P.S. You will soon realize my trip includes A LOT of eating this time. Drop by if you’d like to see more 😉
