What to order at Dim Sum?

West Villa, one of my favourite places for dim sum!! Yum Cha with the family (post) 🙂 West Villa has gotten very popular. So popular that they had to move and remodel and take over the entire 5th floor of Lee Gardens (two floors above An Nam (post)) in Causeway Bay. There are a few West Villa branches in HK, but the CWB branch is definitely our favourite. The food is always scrumptious and delicious! And, the place is always packed and bursting with people and food! Make sure you reserve! Because it often gets packed!

Personal mini 小籠包! Like the ones from Din Tai Fung (post). These were so juicy and plump in a paper thin steamed rice paper wrapping that enveloped a soupy (be careful) these babies will burst!

Steamed Beef Rice Roll in Sweet Soy Sauce/ Cheung Fun …The steamed rice rolls are a classic for yum cha! A soft, silky-smooth, hot rice wrapping lined the beef and then drenched in a sweet soy sauce made this absolutely amazing!

OMG, mouthwatering/ burning deep fried tofu. These generous-sized cubes are lightly dusted in salt, chilli flakes and black pepper then lightly deep-fried to achieve a paper-thin outer crust which simply melts in your mouth! I get these every time. They’re mini deep fried perfections!

Deep Fried Boneless Chicken Wings w/ Shrimp Sauce…these deliciously tender, succulent, and plump chicken are first marinated in a strong shrimp sauce before being deep fried in a gloriously crunchy batter!! <3 These were very similar to the ones from the Boss (post)!
