Lin Heung Tea House 160-164 Wellington Street,Central Tel: 2544 4556 Grub: Famous old-fashioned Cantonese tea house providing traditional Guangdong dim sum in the day time, and bigger dishes at night. Vibe: Traditional. A large old hall, old wooden furniture, old-style ceiling fans, large iron kettles, grumpy waiters, old ladies pushing the trolleys ... it all combines to make you feel like you stepped back in time to the 1960s. Who to bring: Family and friends - older people will enjoy reminiscing, while youngsters can find out what Hong Kong used to be like. What's hot: Lin Heung serves many traditional dim sum that you can't find in other restaurants. But first, try the tea. Most restaurants these days serve tea in teapots. But in Lin Heung, you can choose to have your tea in a traditional tea cup with a lid. Learning how to pour tea the old-fashioned way is an interesting experience. Their siu mai, a dim sum which usually has a yellow skin and is filled with pork meat, comes with some interesting alternative fillings, such as quail's egg, pig's intestine and liver. They may be surprising, but these ingredients work incredibly well. Another traditional dim sum is the 'big bun', a large bun filled with a mixture of ingredients. Lin Heung's contains chicken meat, chicken wings, quail's eggs, dried mushroom and a large chunk of ham. This dish is best shared with others to make sure you have space to try other food. The steamed sponge cake, ma lai go, is also nice. They follow the tradition of using brown sugar in the cake mix, resulting in a very soft, delicious sponge. If you have a sweet tooth, try the perfectly balanced sesame and lotus bun. What's not: A lot of restaurants these days seem to be making lighter dim sum, so you may find Lin Heung's offerings to be very meaty and oily. Don't expect good service. The experienced waiters, some of whom have been there forever, are rude and impatient. This isn't helped by the fact the restaurant is almost always packed, and there is no queuing system. It's really hard to get a seat in rush hours, and you need to be prepared to have strangers sitting at your table. These negatives all add to the traditional feel, though. Cost: Around HK$50 for dim sum, and HK$90 for dinner.
