OLDEST Dim Sum House vs. LUXURY Dim Sum in Hong Kong | How to Eat Dim Sum in Hong Kong Guide!

  • Published on Jul 15, 2019
  • A trip to Hong Kong would not be complete without some dim sum, and this time, I tried out a couple different experiences. I went for old fashioned traditional dim sum at Lin Heung Tea House and then for fancy luxury dim sum at Yan Toh Heen.

    That analogy for the Shumei was perfect. Does it need to be there? No. Should it be there? Yes.

    A sudden dim source of light from outside makes the sharp focus when you're having the dessert at the last, I love terrible weather, thunderstorm when I stay indoor

    I am so hungry from watching this video! I love Dim Sum, but have never had anything like what was shown here. There are no restaurants like those shown anywhere in my area. If I could go to Hong Kong, I would spend most of my trip just eating every variety of Dim Sum that I could! I make my own version at home, a very very poor imitation of the real thing. I would be ecstatic to eat in restaurants like those shown. Wow!

    I’ve been to that restaurant on top of the Intercon. Honestly the food was decent but not great specially for what you pay. Our bill for two person was around $400. The view was probably the best.

    $60 actually seems kind of expensive - not sure why, but, it looks like it shouldn't cost that much? At least to me. In Japan, I had many amazing foods for under $20 for the whole meal.
    Hmm, did he even say how much the second place cost?

    Hey Mike,
    You mentioned the price of the first restaurant, but I would really like to know the price of the tasting meny you guys ordered at the second place.
    I'm going to HK in only 4 days, I want to visit both of these places. Appreciate it :)

    I love traditional but wow does the luxury place look wonderful. I have to suffer along with my pork and shrimp pot stickers and custom dipping sauce of my own making. Theres not a decent dim sum place within 250 miles so Im on my own. As soon as it cools off and my herb garden takes off its time for home made Pho.

    Second chick has the ultimate job. Getting paid to go on a strictly dinner only date at the most expensive dim sum place in the city as a guide and eating for free. I would assume, if possible, a happy ending would be considerably extra but I doubt it. However I bet she knows where to advise her customers to go for that service should they desire.

    I have seen this chick, traditional place, times before and she is a fantastic foodie guide and well worth the hire considering how much it costs to get there. To not hire her services would be foolish.

    Virginia is so pretty and so adorable! Thanks for your tips on Dim Sum, and love ya Mikey as always! Love the exquisitely beautiful Aiko as well. Such a sweetie. Love that she is so delicate and sophisticated, but still will devour those dim sum like a savage! You always have the coolest friends! I cannot get over the view from the harbor outside and outside of your hotel. That is just where you want to spend your life moments. My gosh! Breathtaking.
