Tai Chung Wah is perfect for group dinners

One thing you learn living in Hong Kong, is that you never east just one dish when you go to a restaurant! It is all about Sharing. Chinese prefer to dine out in groups, order a lot of dishes and share everything. I came to like this style because sometimes i just can not decide on what i want to eat so i want to have it all.

A local friend recommended trying Tai Chung Wah for dinner. This place is huge (400 seats) and really popular among locals. It located a little bit further from downtown, in Sheun Sha Wan area.


Tai Chung Wah

The Restaurant is within 5 minutes walk from Sheun Sha Wan MTR station and is located at 539 Fok Wing Street. At dinner time, it is very busy so you have to make a reservation ahead of time (9045 4863 / 6096 0082). Once you go to the address indicated above they will give you a menu and an ordering sheet and instruct you to go to another entrance one block away. Once You get into that side street, you will see first different kitchen stalls, everyone specialized in something : BBQ, seafood, fried rice, etc… After that, on both sides you will see several restaurants almost all full of people. They are ALL Tai Chung Wah. I was really impressed by the scale of the place. Continue reading


DimSum @ City University Chinese Restaurant

City University has a lot of options when it comes to eating places. And Most of them are student budget friendly. Aside from the usual canteens, the university has also a traditional Chinese Restaurant that serves Dimsum and Chinese Cuisine. It is located on the 8th floor the Amenities Building (Facing the swimming pool). You can access it by taking elevators 19 or 20.

In order to celebrate submitting one of my group project reports, i joined my local teammates for a traditional Dimsum breakfast. We arrived there around 10.45am and were informed that the place is open for students only from 11am to noon and that’s when it serves exclusively the university staff.We waited 10 minutes and were seated after and got the menu to select our choices. The restaurant has a dimsum menu and a set menu that comes with different items for around 220HKD (30CAD) but since we were not very hungry we choice the regular dim sum which turned out to be cheaper.
