Where to go after a rough LKF night when you’re not in the mood to go home yet? Tsui Wah? Hmmm…no. Ichiran? Hmmm..nono. I’d take a cab and go a lil further to Kennedy Town and enjoy an early dim sum session. I could totally use some dim sum and a lot of tea…
Opens at 3amMonday to Sunday, San Hing is the best after hours Cantonese joint, where you can find a mix of elderly and drunk people. The dining experience is definitely quintessentially Hong Kong. Don’t expect fancy menus or top-notch services here but they do have some really nice dim sum and tea for you to rehydrate after a few hours of dancing and consumption of alcohol. Their dim sum came without frill but everything was freshly made and heaped into a giant bamboo dimsum-mountain. WOOOOAH! That’s pretty much all I need..
If you leave without having their signature runny custard eggyolk bun, I’m pretty damn sure you’ll regret a lot, lot. Their custard bun is masterfully crafted and flawlessly addictive. I can’t help but easily devour 3 to 4 buns every time I visit. Consume when hot and find the oozing concoction slip and slide in your mouth.. better than sex? Maybe, you tell me! Beside steamed dimsum, San Hing also serves a few deep-fried goodies, like the interesting yet scrumptious deep-fried milk. The greasiness from those is perhaps something you need to help soak up the alcohol.
Let’s go party and have dim sum afterwards! (only if you are not deadly drunk though…)
..work hard, eat harder
