Hong Kong Food Adventures Part 2 – Lin Heung

In Eating out, Hong Kong, Outside Dubai on October 6, 2010 at 09:51

Lin Heung is a typical example of a traditional teahouse when you see retired old man coming together to have breakfast, read papers and catch up with the latest gossip over tea and dim sum.

It retains the old-world charm that is hard to replicate in the modern world that we live in today, when you step into Lin Heung it transports you into a different and , you will feel that you have traveled back in time and you have been brought back to the 1960s, a time when life was not so busy and people actually had time to have leisurely breakfasts and dim sums in push carts.

Enough said about the place but please note that you will be required to wait as no reservations are taken and yes you are to share your table with complete strangers.

The dim sum served here is of the hearty fare of the old school variety and not the delicate morsels that you get in most restaurants these days. and Thus they may fall well short of your expectations if you are used to having your dim sum in top restaurants. With that disclaimer, I would like to say that whatever you don’t get from the taste of the food, u get in nostalgia.

We had the char siu bao, yuan yang bao, chicken feet, chongfun and hargau.
