If you are wanting traditional when in Hong Kong then Dim Sum at the Luk Yu Tea House is a must. This is an old school tea house, that’s been around for a long time (1933). Located in Central, in the heart of the modern ex-pat fast pace business district, Luk Yu is a complete contrast, like stepping into another world, in another time.

We ordered Chinese Tea and 4 Dim Sum dishes, which is more than enough for 2 people with such generous portions. The waiter also thought we had ordered quite a lot, and told us so :)
Steamed barbecued pork bun - by far my favourite (although all the food was delicious). The buns, made from rice flour, were light and fluffy, the closest I have come to imagining that I was eating a cloud. A cloud with sweet and tender bbq pork inside.
