Dim Sum is a staple food item loved by the Chinese, it is not only delicious but also it is one of the most fun food experiences in Hong Kong. Dim Sum is basically small bite-sized portions of food that will be served in small steamer baskets that. Dumplings, deep fried food, steamed buns are some of the food items you could find in your Dim Sum basket. You could find this dish at most of the Wan Chai hotel properties the likes of Dorsett Wanchai Hong Kong and in other populated regions of Hong Kong as well.

Lo Mai Gai

The Chinese love their food steamed since it’s a food preparation method that preserves all the nutrients and flavours of the used ingredients. Lo Mai Gai is also a dish made by Steaming glutinous rice with pork, chicken or Chinese sausages wrapped in lotus leaves. Once cooked and unwrapped, what you’ll get is a gooey and decadent delight that is fragrant and absolutely delicious.

Roast Duck

Marinated in a mix that contains over 20 different spices, and glazed in honey, the duck is slow roasted in charcoal. Once done what you get is a perfectly cooked duck’s which the exterior is golden and crispy while the interior remains moist, juicy and succulent.

Soy Sauce braised pigeon

Like duck pigeon too has succulent and dark meat that is more delicious and rich in flavours. This particular dish is made by braising the pigeon in Soy Sauce adding in a variety of spices and herbs which gives more flavour and character to the dish. This is certainly a must try during your time in Hongkong.
