Hong Kong Eats: Luk Yu Tea House, Central

Those of you who have been guessing from my last post will definitely see this coming, another dim sum food post. Hahaha.

Since Dim Sum Bar has the modern vibe, this time we are going to those old-tea-house style dim sum place, Luk Yu Tea House. The main door, interestingly, was guarded by a foreigner when we arrived. We thought we were at the wrong place. =P

The first floor is already fully occupied so we are ushered to the 2nd floor where there is still a lot of seats. The restaurant is fully manned by those mid-aged men who looks like they are in kungfu movie. I sense a HK-mafia-vibe here. But no worry, they still serve us politely despite their appearance. =P

We are so excited looking at the menu on our tables until we see this...traditional Chinese characters. Aughhh. Since it's gonna take us long time to read this menu, we ask if there's English menu instead and yeahhh, they have it. I love HK restaurants.

Overall, the dim sum taste more on the okay-ish side but if you want to get the vibe of eating dimsum inside tea house, you may want to pop by a visit (since it's not that crowded and all). 

Now, please excuse me, I'm gonna eat them all. Hehehe.
