The morning catching up, small plates sharing and tea drinking ritual of yum cha is part of Hong Kong’s culture and identity. Back in the 80s and early 90s, old ladies would circle around buzzing dining rooms with pushcarts and shout out for attention. While dim sum carts are increasingly hard to spot in Hong Kong, even more so is an ad hoc seating system where diners waiting to be seated have to eyeball finishing tables and grab them once they’re vacated. This is the case at one of Hong Kong’s oldest dim sum establishments: Lin Heung Kui. During peak hours, you’d have to fight for a seat. If you are unlucky and fail to gauge timing, someone who arrives later might even sit and eat before you do. My strategy was to politely check with diners who seem to be finishing and then standing by, which worked as quite a few were friendly enough and accustomed to the system. Alternatively, a separate room opens up at 12 in the rear of the restaurant where tables are clothed and you won’t have to sit with strangers. That room would be much quieter but a 10% service fee is charged. Pushcarts would still come in so not to worry about missing out on the experience.Food was for the most part excellent, with some old school favorites that I’ve only seen for the first time. Pricing is on the extreme low end and much to our delight, busy servers do maintain a more than decent level of friendliness and helpfulness, making for a pleasant and memorable experience for us. If you just want your dim sum in a relatively quiet setting with shiny plates and beautiful furniture, and especially if you want to be able to book in advance, this might not be the ideal place to go during brunch hours any day of the week. But if you or your guest is looking to experience old-style dim sum culture, this would definitely be worth checking out.P.S. Lin Heung Kui (莲香居) is not to be confused with Lin Heung Tea House (莲香楼). The latter is located in Central (Wellington Street). The first ever Lin Heung Tea House was founded in 1889 in Guangzhou, while Central’s Lin Heung Tea House opened its doors in 1926 in Hong Kong. Despite being a newer outlet, Lin Heung Kui was the branch that was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand. “Lin Heung” means fragrant lotus, and the restaurant was named after their famous lotus paste based delicacies such as lotus seed paste buns and mooncakes.Food RundownChinese Steamed Cake 香滑马拉糕 $21Super moist and fluffy.Fish Shumai with Dried Scallops 瑶柱烧卖王 $36This was especially good—it was flavorful with bits of dried shredded scallop in every bite.Beef Rice Rolls 香茜牛肉肠粉 $35Freshly made. Nice and meaty.Radish cake and Taro cake 萝卜糕 / 芋头糕 ~$50This was made to order and the sizzling pan filled the room with smokey goodness. Unfortunately it smelled better than it tasted: we thought that both were quite disappointing.“Gold Coin Chicken” 串烧金钱鸡 $60This is old school stuff that’s rarely seen nowadays. Gold Coin Chicken is made of pork loin, pork lard and chicken liver threaded on a skewer. The dish is extremely fatty with deep and sweet flavors. Apparently the skewer is roasted for ten minutes before being drizzled with maltrose sugar, and this process is repeated up to four times. Marinated Beef Shank in Five Spices 五香牛展 $50Very much on the sweet side in terms of flavor (I believe this is due to it being over-marinated), but the beef was very tasty and tender.Bean Curd Rolls with Fresh Prawns 鲜虾腐皮夹 $30This was just OK. The bean curd had become a bit too soggy for my liking (I prefer chewy ones that are harder to bite) but flavor-wise it was good. There were bits of meat and some prawns in there as well.Prawn Dumplings 地鱼虾饺王 $38Very thin and delicate layer of flour there and the prawn was big and juicy. I liked the savory-sweet flavor balance as well which was a little bit different from elsewhere but I couldn’t exactly pinpoint what it was.Lin Heung Special Duck 莲香霸王鸭 $298Really quite liked this. It was supposed to be their most signature dish (they have many signatures, but this is supposed to be the dish). There were lots of stuffing in the duck and I heard that the dish takes hours to prepare. The stuffing includes fresh lotus seeds, diced mushrooms, diced pork, gingko, barley and salted egg yolk. The bird is initially deep-fried and then steamed to tenderize it and allow its flavors to immerse fully in the stuffing. A must-try dish.上汤苋菜 ~$80Good and fresh. Love the quasi deep fried garlic as always.Lotus Seed Paste Pudding with Sago 莲茸焗布甸 ~$80This was a highlight. It wasn’t very sweet, and on top of super smooth lotus seed paste there was milk and a tiny bit of butter in there that really made it super aromatic and creamy. The little sago pearls in there gave the hot baked custard some extra chewiness. This kind of dessert is not my thing, but it was still worthwhile trying it once. 继续阅读

一直都想试旧式茶楼风味。但就怕自己唔识规矩,会令到自己有不愉快经历。开始时系想试中环间旧店。因为听讲最近又开返。但朋友坚持唔想去。原因系店员零礼貌。无服务和食物质素差。那我都要迁就下朋友。就嚟试这间只差一个字的老茶楼。佢哋两间茶店背景应该系一个大故事。但我只系食客所以唔会太深究。讲返正题:这间店最好的地方系有升降机。老友记就可以舒服上去叹茶食点心。冷气都好够。地方都算大。当然坐位就比较窄。这点就希望能够改善。我点了水仙。这里可以选择碗冲茶。但其实我想讲我地这些新派人都唔太识用。茶叶很多很浓。好唔好饮就真系睇个人。我就觉得太浓。最後我还因爲这样唔太舒服咗一个下午。因为真系好削胃。如果大家唔系经常饮浓茶。我建议叫佢落少啲茶叶。姐姐哥哥服务还好。四围问茶客需唔需要加水?今次和朋友就只点选了两款点心。就系虾饺和烧卖。虾饺其实冇咩大特别。都系和其他酒楼差唔多唔算热腾腾。可能已经蒸好一段时间。只可以话唔点都唔觉可惜。烧卖就更加普通。虾肉唔算鲜味。反而猪肉比虾肉更多。食完这两款点心。根本对其他点心零兴趣。选择又很少。再加上个胃又唔太舒服。所以就结帐离开。今次用餐体验都唔太差。只是自己掌握唔到自己原来对浓茶都唔太容易适应。来这里无需要太早。因为无早餐时段。十一点後楼上三楼才开。就可以更多位置选择。间中试吓这些旧式酒楼都系一件乐事。 继续阅读

呢间系旧式茶楼莲香居,出名坏旧点心车同大水壶。总共有两层可以拣,多数台都要搭台。服务员都十分友善的。当点心车子堆出嚟时我就会好奇车上有咩点心食,佢地一路叫卖就我一路树起耳仔听。今次叫咗叉烧肠、煎堆仔、春卷、烧卖同荷叶饭。食物味道不过不失。煎堆仔更是有意想不到的奶黄咸,不过荷叶饭就略多,应该有两大碗饭。荷叶都香嘅,不过啲饭就一般般。旧色茶楼系香港嘅集体回忆,想坏念下以前的茶楼,不妨一试。 继续阅读
