Oops! Things got quiet around here once again! Hahaha guess I got carried away with catching up on my Kdrama 😛 So yes, I’m back to blog about the one and only dim sum meal that we had during our Hong Kong trip!
We only had 5 days in HK, of which 3 were spent in Disneyland and Ocean Park. Too much food that we wanted to eat but due to limited time and also limited stomach space, we had to get our priorities right. Haha! I’m a sucker for all things cute so it was a no-brainer that we must visit Dim Sum Icon thanks to their cartoon themed dim sum!
Prior our trip, I was really excited because it was Miffy before that (which I wasn’t too keen on) and we were just in time for the launch of Spongebob dim sum!
Thankfully, Dim Sum Icon accepts reservations via private messaging on their Facebook page and replies were really quick.
There are two Dim Sum Icon branches and we went to the one at Tsim Sha Tsui at The ONE. Yes la the one at The ONE. LOL. GEDDIT? Reservation was for 5pm and there were quite a number of occupied tables already! Dim sum all day err day! They open from 11am to 11pm btw.
We also took this opportunity to catch up with Jen, founder and CEO of WanderSnap, together with her partner, over a meal. You can read about our WanderSnap photoshoot experience in Hong Kong here and in Bali here.
While I was flipping through the menu, I wanted to order almost everything! Some because too cute la!
The two men went for a non Spongebob drink, the frozen Sakura beer served in a Unicorn drink float. We even got to keep the float after that!
Not sure what was so special about the Pineapple Special Drink (HK$49) because it tasted like pure pineapple juice to me lol.
Steamed Egg Yolk Buns with Taro (HK$49) were quite fluffy and delish.
Nothing to shout about for the Egg Tarts (HK$49).
I wonder why not real chicken meat for the Glutinous Rice with Vegetarian Chicken and Fried Eggs (HK$49) but surprisingly, this was really yummy.
I really liked the Steamed Truffle and Mushroom Buns (HK$49)! Anything truffle is always a good idea lol.
My favorite of the lot deserves another shot.
Honey French Toast with Egg Yolk Filling (HK$59) is also worthy of mention. A well balanced mix of sweet and savoury.
Layered Cantonese Sponge Cake (HK$39) was soft, chewy and not overly sweet.
Patrick Steamed Taro Pudding with Lollipop in Coconut Shell (HK$49) was served warm and I highly recommend this as dessert to end your dim sum meal.
On the overall, misterchewy and I were impressed that the food at Dim Sum Icon was actually quite delicious! I feel that the savoury items were the best! If you only have time for ONE dim sum place, Dim Sum Icon would be your best bet.
