Dim Sum Run Down: The Grace's Garden

I had another nice dim sum in Hong Kong. This time around it was at The Grace's Garden (玉桃苑). There is no push cart service at this restaurant, so everything was made to order. We had the usual dim sum items here, and they were all good (although their shrimp dumplings weren't better than those from Jade Garden).

Below were some of the unusal dim sum items:

  • Pork Chop Sandwich (豬排包) - It was literally a piece of pork chop sandwiched between semi-sweet buns. Apparently, pork chop sandwiches are a specialty from Macau (they're definitely much better there, and I'll have a review for you in a later post). The pork in these sandwiches were a bit tough though.

These Pork Chop Sandwiches look very appetizing, don't they?

  • Fried Wontons (炸雲吞) - I've had alot of fried wontons, but none that looked like these. These looked like giant tortellinis! They were almost as big as my palm. They were filled with shrimp inside.

  • Scallion Pancakes (蔥油餅) - These are definitely not the kind you'd find in the US. They were thin and deep fried. It wasn't heavy in the scallions taste, but you can definitely taste them in there.

If you're in the area, stop by this restaurant for dim sum and do some serious shopping (or window shopping) in the Times Square mall later!
