You can try the traditional chinese dim sum in any of the local chinese restaurants. Most of the dim sum are steamed on bamboo steamer which is vital in Chinese cooking before the wok. The bamboo can absorb condensation so that moisture doesn't drop back on the food and make it soggy.

In the Metropolis Mall (7 Metropolis Drive, Hung Hom) there is this Seafood Restaurant.. though the name escapes me... I was staying at the Harbour Plaza Metropolis hotel next door, (not to be confused with the Harbour Plaza hotel).. so this restaurant was a delightful surprise. The dim sum was delicious and so very inexpensive.. they even have an English menu of sorts..
For dim sum breakfast for 2.. and we are hearty eaters.. $11 USD including 10 % service charge.
Favorite Dish: Sticky Rice with Chicken... the deep fried spring rolls.. the egg tart.. all YUM!!!
Many of Hong Kong's visitors come to the dynamic and bustling port city for one thing only--to dine. No one is quite sure how many eating places there are in Hong Kong, but there are some 6,000 licensed restaurants. The variety of cuisine, ambiance, and price range is unbeatable. Although there is something for almost everyone, the major culinary glory of Hong Kong is its Chinese restaurants: the true gourmet can depend on finding the finest ingredients, chefs, and standards of service in the world.
Favorite Dish: You should try some of the culinary delights of the Cantonese cuisinelike barbecued meats, especially 'char siu' (sweet barbecued pork) and 'siu ngor' (barbecued goose), shark's fin soup, double-boiled soups, prawns and crabs steamed or cooked in black sauce, gluey congee (thick Cantonese rice porridge), or dim sum.
Hong Kong is known for Dim Sum. There are standard shrimp dumplings. There are small chow snacks of mixed meats and vegetables. There are bean curd rolls. There are deep fried taro vegetable puffs. There is steamed tripe in black bean and chili sauce.
This is only a small sample.
The restaurant was called Jade Garden, somewhere in Kowloon. But you´ll find this kind anywhere.
Dim Sum is a variety of smaller dishes. The steaming pots and plates are moved around in the big room on trolleys, and you pick the dish you´d like. It´s an adventure - you never know what you´ll get. Wonderful!
Uh, oh, mustn´t forget: Dim Sum is for lunch only.
Favorite Dish: Dim Sum! Definitely Dim Sum!
in Cantonese it means Touch the Heart
I like their refurbished look. It gives you a nostalgic feel - like a eateries in the 60s!!! with all those pictures of chinese maiden on the wall.
Favorite Dish: Lots of traditional Dim Sum, and also simple homestyle cooking. I like their simple food - reminds me of at home cooking like grandma made. Things like steamed chicken, steamed minced meat etc.
'Tea restaurants' are really worthy trying. You can find various kinds of food on their menu: western, Chinese and some HK invention! Rice, noodles and dim sum are always good choices.
Favorite Dish: Wan Tan noodles, Dim Sum, Deserts.
As a tourist, it'll be silly to go for fast-food in Hong Kong cuz its local Cantonese cuisine is incredibly superb. The city also offers full gamut of world wide cuisine, unrestricting your dining choice. Whatever variety, you absolutely oughtta step into any 'Dim Sum' restaurant and taste the array of snack-sized delicacies by choosing what appeals from passing trolleys. Such kind of food is what the locals will consume for breakfast or lunch, and that's when the restaurants are packed with crowds.
I have always like to settle for beef with rice sticks and pepper sauteed with black bean sauce or simply dumpling variety bagged for a meal.
I can't really come out with the where answers. But if I've got a chance to revisit this culinary land, I'm sure I'll pin the answers here loud and clear.
