KC and I arrived in Hong Kong hungry! Haha!
We asked the hotel concierge for a good (and close by) dimsum brunch place and he recommended Cheers Restaurant at Windsor House building.
There were two restaurants that served dimsum but we gravitated to the one where there seem to be more locals eating.
|Cheers Restaurant, Windsor House Building - they serve brunch till 2pm for a discounted price. |
Well, hello there! We were the ONLY tourists eating at Cheers or at least it seemed like we were the only Filipino customers. Very cool.
The challenge: Ordering in Cantonese! Haay! The last thing two hungry ladies need is to order using sign language! Haha! How does one order Xiao Long Bao using hand gestures? Mahirap s'ya day! Try mo!
Like what I wrote earlier, our HK trip was full of lovely surprises! A Chinese couple visiting from Canada noticed our ordering "dilemma" and went out of their way to help us. God was watching over us—thank you for our guardian angel who spoke both Cantonese and English!
The table setting:
|Hello! You look better with food.|
The menu and order sheet:
Since KC is pescatarian, she starts with this dish. I think she was quite happy devouring the eggs as I don't eat them.
|Seaweeds with sesame seeds|
Again, solong-solo ni KC etong dish na 'to kasi di ko s'ya type!
|Steamed shrimp dumplings|
|Xia Long Bao|
The skin was quite disappointing but the soup inside the dimsum is always a yummy surprise! Keri na!
|Mini pork team buns|
Because KC doesn't eat meat, solong-solo ko naman ito! Yay! Haha!
|Vegetable dimsum in rice wrapper|
Hating kapatid kami ni KC dito. Oh, we ordered two... or was it three of the same dish. Very, very PG lang ang dating! LOL
|Note to selves: Chili sauce is not soup. Between the two of us, I think we consumed four small bowls of this!|
We also ordered other steamed veggies but I wasn't able to take photos because we were deliriously "Tom Jones".
|We were famished, we didn't have the energy to take pictures of ourselves kaya mga bagelya na lang namin!|
Say hi to Louis and Celine! LOL
Cheers Restaurant has good food at good prices. It's definitely worth another visit when you go to Causeway Bay area in Hong Kong.
Shoppingero/shoppingera, tune in for more of our HK getaway and beyond!
