Yum Cha

No visit to Hong Kong is complete without trying the city’s quintessential local foods.  At Yum Cha, your dumplings will come out in different shapes and with cute faces on them.

If I had to choose only one cuisine to dine on for the rest of my days, Vietnamese food would be in very serious contention. What I’ve always loved about Vietnamese cuisine is how intentionally it’s prepared and constructed. Each dish considers colour, taste, and fragrance, which ensures there’s an inherent balance to all that you consume. Not to mention, almost everything I tasted in Vietnam was beyond delicious.
