3 Reasons Why You MUST Try Dim Sum in Hong Kong and Macao!

As we wondered about the glittering hotels of MGM, Wynn and Grand Lisboa on the main Macao Peninsula, we started to feel peckish. It was around 4pm and so we thought about grabbing a quick bite before having dinner later on. Since it was just a quick bite, we decided not to splurge (yet) and went into the streets behind to look for a eating joint. And so we came upon this restaurant – Wa Fung Dim Sum Restaurant.

The restaurant was practically empty as you can see in this subsequent picture…

At first, we were a little apprehensive, skeptical even. Usually if there’s no one in the restaurant, it does not bode well for the restaurant (or for that matter the customer – us). The service though was ok, as the Aunty rumbled on in Cantonese, we started to speak in Chinese and got some of our orders underway.

The result? This post – 3 Reasons WHY YOU MUST TRY DIM SUM IN HONG KONG AND MACAO!

Top 3 Reasons Why You MUST Try Dim Sum in Hong Kong and Macao

Reason No. 1 : We never expected to “Bump” right into this GREAT TASTING DIM SUM!

You would not believe this but this was actually one of the best char siew chee cheong fun we’ve ever tasted…

 Best Chee Cheung Fun EVER! - 26MOP

The white outer layer (the chee cheung fun) was springy and chewy (VERY TAONG!) leaving you wanting for more. The char siew bits were fatty, juicy and oh so flavourful! The combination was just exceptionally heavenly!

 Custard Buns with juicy filling - 16MOP

The custard bun on the other hand was the kind that bursts out when you take a bite into it! So be REALLY careful! Leaves you slurping (on the custard) and chewing on the bun – all at the same time! :p

Reason No. 2 : Generous Authentic Dim Sum

We also went for the classics such as century egg porridge, har gau and siew mai. These classics showed the authenticity of eating dim sum in areas such as Hong Kong and Macao…

 Century Egg and Pork Porridge - 26 MOP

Har gau(Prawn Dumplings) - 26 MOP (2 prawns in each har gau!!)

Siew Mai - 20 MOP (2 prawns each and meat inside!)

Only the freshest ingredients were used and the dim sum just revels in its simplicity. Fresh ingredients, masterful concoction of these ingredients coupled with timeless tradition, made these dishes so marvelously tasty!

Reason No. 3 : All at a great price!

 Curry Beef Rice - 38MOP

Can you believe that this huge plate of Curry Beef Rice (with tender beef and tendon) was only 38 MOP?! (6 SGD!) In a restaurant no less!
