Which restaurant has the cheapest and tastiest dimsum in Hong Kong ?

Can't tell which one is the cheapest & the tastiest 'coz I am not able to compare all restaurants in HK at 1 time, right? You can refer to what I wrote about in my HK food blog here, I've featured a few Chinese restaurants with some my personal comments. See if my entries could help. Cheers~

I don't have time to read through all your blog.

Just give me any popular Dim Sum restaurant that is cheap and within walking distance to MTR.

Your question is too general and subjective. Those near MTR might not be cheap, and how do you define cheap? If you're saying near MTR, there are MTR stations in Northern New Territories as well, e.g. you can have cheap nice dim sum in Yuen Long such as this famous Tai Wing Wah Restaurant, which satisfied all your criteria.

how much does it cost per pax for dim sum?

Hm..... it depends on how many and what kind of dim sum you order... I guess it costs around HK$60-70 per pax, which is the average cost... It might be cheaper if you have dim sum after 2pm or 2:30pm, 'coz Chinese restaurants use to offer cheaper price for afternoon tea time, otherwise, you can try to have a very early dim sum at 7am-11am, it's also cheaper than the peak time during 12nn-2pm.

It should be Yau Ma Tei MTR station exit A1 to Pitt Street if I'm not wrong. But heard it is in progress of renovation but not sure if it's finished yet. Chinese restaurant in Hong Kong normally serves dim sum from very early morning like 7am till 3 or 4pm.

So there's still Tim Ho Wan in Yau Ma Tei?

Will it be very long queue?

Singapore's Tim Ho Wan always very long queue, worried HK's one might be the same.

 

Other than Tim Ho Wan, are there any mid range dim sum restaurant around Yau Ma Tei?

Preferably near MTR or Cityview hotel...

Yau Ma Tei Tim Ho Wan has closed long time ago. No more Tim Ho Wan in that area now, and there are a lot of chinese restaurants (i.e. cha lau in cantonese, e.g. Tao Heung, Maxim's Palace, New Star, Super Star, Choi Fook, Fu Lam.....etc.) and some dim sum restaurants around Mongkok, Yau Ma Tei, Jordan, you can walk around and try, their standard more or less the same.

Thanks!

Maybe when reach there I'll check with the hotel staff on nice dim sum restaurant in the area.

DimDimSum dim sum specialist in Mongkok is a nice choice. If you think it's a bit far from your hotel, you may try Kung Fu Dim Sum (功夫點心) which is nearer to The Cityview (address is: Shop B&C, G/F, Yee Fat Building, 10-16 Portland street, Yau Ma Tei) or this one: Hei Wan 喜運 dim sum specialist (G/F, 65 Portland Street, Yau Ma Tei)

Oh ya, saw OpenRice on DimDim SumSum, looks yummy~

Forgot that day was supposed to go Flower Market and Goldfish Market, so DimDim SumSum should be nearby, right?

 

And then after that, shopping at Langham Place ^^.

 

BTW, I saw the address, english is G/F for Ground Floor but Chinese is 地下?

So 地下 means ground floor and not basement?

 

I saw Yee Shun address 油麻地彌敦道513號地下, and I thought it was at MTR station...

It's dim dim sum, just afraid you mixed up... Yep it should be near Flower market and Goldfish market, but it's not a very big restaurant, suggest you to arrive there for an early lunch to avoid queue.

 

Haha.. yes 地下 means ground floor in HK!

Oh yes, sorry, I saw is DimDimSum.

Address on OpenRice is: G/F, 112 Tung Choi Street, Mong Kok

旺角通菜街112號地下

 

Correct?

I think they open at 11am, so what would be a good timing to go?

Before 12?

Yes, that address is correct. If you visit on weekdays, 12noon is still consider as early lunch; If on weekends/Sunday, better have it at 11am, or have a late lunch/afternoon tea instead.

I believe that is just a fake scene? HK dramas seldom filmed at real site even for the house/apartment, all are filmed at man-made scenes inside TVB city.
