Before hitting Hong Kong I requested reasonably priced breakfast spots near our hotel, preferably dim sum.
@naf quite rightly pointed that Hong Kong was no time to be skimping on dim sum and @klyeoh pointed me to Cuisine Cuisine @ The Mira Hotel, which was very near our hotel. As luck would have it they started serving sim sum at 10:30 am on a Sunday and had a table available
Cuisine Cuisine is in a hotel/shopping complex and is a bright modern space and the place was fairly full of families having dim sum.
The menu had it’s fair share of classics but also some more innovative takes on dim sum. We started with Pork Xao Long Bao. Good thin skins and nice sweet pork.
Next up was Steamed rice flour rolls stuffed with scallops, duo clams and vegetables. Perfectly cooked seafood and spankingly fresh vegetables.
Steamed wild mushroom and black truffle dumplings. These were a little disappointing. Very thick gelatinous skins and I couldn’t detect any truffle.
Pan fried turnip cakes with Parma ham and prawns in X.O chilli sauce was the stand out dish. Nice crisp on the outside on the turnip cakes and soft on the inside. The Parma ham added a nice saltiness and was lovely and crisp. The sweet XO sauce set everything off nicely.
