At the beginning of our Mid-Levels Escalators Tour, we just came across this restaurant because Fil and I were in one of our snits. Good thing we did!
The restaurant itself was on the second floor, and chaos ruled. There was no line or reservation area, we had to go around and ask the diners ourselves if the seats beside them were taken or not.
Upon checking my files, I realized that this was the Lin Heung Tea House that Pexters were recommending us to go to! It promised an authentic Hong Kong experience with servers hardly understanding English.
It is recommended that diners approach the dimsum cart as soon as it come out of the kitchen — else, you will be left with items people don’t like as much.
Fil bravely went to get food from the dimsum lady. Any food, I told Fil. Everything we can try!
I also tried ordering from the waiter, asking for roasted pork rice topping — first time i tried to order, he gave me a bowl of plain rice. Second time i tried to order, he gave us lechon Macau!
These were what we got from the dimsum ladies. Some of them were familiar, like the spareribs and the sweet cake, the others we just guessed “…umm, tastes like beef
We stayed for one hour — from 12:30pm to 1:30pm, and people were still flowing in.
We also explored the restroom.
Finally, our bill…. Tada!
This place is highly recommended. For the general experience, the place is worth going to. Note also that they have a different menu at night. Might be worth a try too.
