One Dim Sum: A famous dim sum place in Hong Kong

This place was recommended by a friend and I also read a lot of good reviews about it before.

The prices here are fairly cheaper than other Dim Sum restaurants like Tim Ho Wan and Dim Dim Sum.

For those who can’t read Chinese, One Dim Sum might be really hard to spot as they have a huge banner that reads 一點心 (One Dim Sum in Chinese). However, there will be a line of people queueing up outside to enter the fully packed restaurant, which makes it a little easier to spot.

Our orders were taken when we were queuing outside by filling up the order chit ourselves. We were served hot tea and soon after, our dim sums were being served.

A must order at every dim sum restaurant is Siu Mai (Pork Dumplings). I found that it was just decent, not as flavourful as others I’ve tried here.

Price: HK$25 (4pcs)/ SG$4.50
Heat: 0/5
Taste: 2/5 (because it’s still edible)

The Steamed Minced Beef Ball looked really good! It was also a pretty standard dish, with a very strong vegetable taste.

Price: HK$17 (3pcs)/ SG$3.10
Heat: 0/5
Taste: 1/5 (because it’s unedible)

The texture of the Shuk Mai Jok (Sweet Corn Congee) was smooth, with small bits of corn inside. It was quite a plain porridge but would be really good on a cold, rainy day.

Price: HK$16/ SG$2.90
Heat: 0/5
Taste: 2.5/5

The Char Siu Chan Bao (Baked BBQ Pork Bun) is one of their recommended items. The filling was really tasty and bun was sweet and fluffy!

Price: HK$17 (3pcs)/ SG$3.10
Heat: 0/5
Taste: 3/5

I couldn’t appreciate the thick skin of the Har Gau (Prawn Dumplings) as it was too chewy and hard to bite. I gotta say, the prawns were really juicy!

Price: HK$26 (4pcs)/ SG$4.80
Heat: 0/5
Taste: 3/5
