“I will only eat Chinese food on my first day in Hong Kong!” that’s what I stubbornly told myself and my travel buddies. That crazy rule I imposed turned down several restaurants along the way while searching for our first restaurant stop. Although I have to admit, I broke the record towards the end of the day. We’ll get to that in my next post. Hehe.

So as we searched for our first stop, we stumbled into this crowded dimsum restaurant called Dimdimsum Dimsum. The name was catchy that pulled us right in. At that moment, I didn’t google Dimdimsum yet. But I really had a strange feeling, I’ve heard about the restaurant from couple of articles I read. Fast a little forward to the part where we went back to the hotel, I did my quick research and found out I was right with my gut-feel. Dimdimsum is named as one of the top dimsum restaurants in Hong Kong and it has been featured in various food blogs and publications already.

The Food:

Steamed Shrimp Dumplings (HKD 30)
Rate: 4/5

Our family has an attachment to Steamed Shrimp Dumplings. We don’t have to debate about ordering or not. It’s given, we look at each other and boom, this dimsum is our list.
Dimdimsum performed an excellent job in the kitchen for captivating our palate for Shrimp dumplings. Perfectly plump shrimps in soft yet firm dimsum wrapper and luscious in all sides.

Shanghai Soup Dumplings with Black Truffle (HKD 24)
Rate: 4/5
In other words, Xiao Long Bao. This Shanghai delicacy reminded me of the authentic Xiao Long Bao I tasted in China. Teeny weeny black truffles played an important role in supplementing more flavor. Its soup isn’t drowning but enough with its amount of meat.
Deep Fried Wontons with Sweet & Sour Sauce (HKD 19)
Rate: 2/5
Wrapped prettily, these Deep Fried Wontons fell short on meat and gave emphasis more on its accented wrap. Brittle and crunchy wonton wrap could catch the attention, but it didn’t last long until I felt cheated on what was inside. Beauty was only outside, unlovely inside.
Piggy Custard Buns (HKD 21)
Rate: 5/5
Contrary to how the wontons turned out, Piggy Custard Buns cheered us up with its oozing salted egg custard flowing from within. Smashing hit that we all adored including the cute yellow-eyed piggy faces starring at us.
No deprivation of salted egg custard in these Piggy Custard Buns. Really a winner at Dimdimsum Dimsum!
Pork Dumplings with Crab Roe (HKD 27)
Rate: 4/5
That was it. Time to pay the bill!
Oh hey, we thought the jar of tea sitting on every was complementary. Surprise surprise, we were just charged extra HKD 9 for it. I’m not quite sure if they had difficulties in communicating with us or that’s really their style. Oh well, we enjoyed the tea anyway.
All in all, Dimdimsum Dimsum is worth the visit and the dollars.
