My Bubble: Dim Sum Under Our Noses!

On our first trip to Hong Kong, lo kong and I stayed in Yau Ma Tei. On our second trip, we stayed in Causeway Bay. This time round, we decided to stay as near as possible to the starting line of the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathan ... Tsim Sha Tsui. In fact, it was really a great choice as our guesthouse was facing the waiting zone to the start of the marathon. It was fantastic as I get to return to my room immediately after flag off, played a little Sudoku to kill some time before heading out again to the finish line at Causeway Bay.

Golden Crown Guest House a.k.a Wonderful Inn

Walking about the Tsim Sha Tsui area, we had earlier noticed a couple of dim sum outlets but our minds were already set on trying the famous one in Mongkok. Not until on the eve of our departure, lo kong suddenly craved for another round of dim sum for breakfast.

Next morning we decided to try the dim sum outlet nearest to Golden Crown Guest House. Located just diagonally across from the Kowloon Mosque & Islamic Center on Nathan Road, it has a very simple name called "Very Good Seafood Restaurant" although it looked like an expensive Chinese restaurant. We descended down a flight of stairs as the restaurant was located on the basement. The ambience was good with equally standard of service. There weren't many customers but those present were simply enjoying their dim sum at very laid back pace.

We were not disappointed to finish off our latest trip to Hong Kong with a dim sum breakfast at this restaurant either. The food was excellent and surprisingly equally as good as Tim Ho Wan in Mongkok, except for their lack of variety.

With such a classier and comfortable restaurant to enjoy dim sum right under noses all these while, it would be insane if we ever queue up for 2 hours just to eat dim sum again!
