after checking in at metropark mongkok near prince edward MTR, we walked to the michelin star one dimsum 一点心 about 2pm. there was a long queue on the chairs outside, so we decided to walk down fa yuen street looking for another dimsum restaurant.
we found dimdimsum 点点心 at 112 tung choi street 通菜街.
i put chicken feet pork rib rice 凤爪排骨饭 as the top photo as for me one of the best consistently tasty dishes at hong kong dimsum restaurants is the ubiquitous 一口饭dish – just rice with meat dish toppings & drizzling with a light mildly sweet sauce…very simple & wonderfully tasty comfort food la! ^^
and so with the fun cheong 粉肠. for me that’s equally defining of hong kong dimsum, like the har gao also is. if you cannot do a good fun cheong 粉肠 like the quite bad ones at the one michelin star one dimsum 一点心, then you are a poor dimsum place. that’s just my own views la…
dimdimsum 点点心 had a good crowd at 2.30pm.
the menu is quite standard stuff.
we ordered 8 items – 5 above plus the rice, steamed pork ribs & siew mai.
the char siew pao was good, char siew tender & not too sweet, better than i expected. char siew pao not my favourite.
the chicken feet pork rib rice 凤爪排骨饭 was good as expected, totally competent, maybe not the best i had.
the chicken feet & pork rib 凤爪& 排骨were great, so maybe the rice and sauce not the best…
har gao 虾饺 was good as expected of any good dimsum place.
siew mai 烧卖 good too.
and the fupeiquin 腐皮卷 was great here, unlike the quite poor ones, surprisingly, at one dimsum 一点心
and the steamed chicken feet was excellent! ^^
and so was the steamed pork ribs la..very good, tender, smooth, tasty. got some fat bits but overall ok.
so before we found dimdimsum 点点心 at 112 tung choi street 通菜街, we walked along walking along the buzzling fa yuen street 花园街…
the last item we had for our very good lunch which cost about HK$160 for 4pax was the fun cheong 粉肠.
this was good standard, light, smooth skin, good fillings. very nice!
