The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Yum cha lunch @ Budaoweng Hotpot Cuisine [iSQUARE], Hong Kong

Speaking of having dim sum in Australia. Recently we met up with some friends for a Sunday playdate, and we went to have yum cha at Budaoweng Hotpot Cuisine. I'd never have guessed from its name that it served dim sum, and it turned out to be a very nice lunch. Of course, the great company had a lot to do with our enjoyable experience, but the food and service at Budaoweng Hotpot Cuisine were pretty good. There are cheaper dim sum to be had elsewhere in Hong Kong, but I liked the convenient location, zero waiting time (friend had a booking), and comfortable setting - all very important when dining with kids (and the kids outnumbered the adults at the table, the youngest one only 6 weeks old at the time!). There's a great view of the city and harbour too. Our friends love hotpot, and they said they will definitely try the hotpot menu here.

Spacious interior:

Har Cheong (rice noodle roll with prawns):

Lo Bak Gou (turnip cake) :

Tripes, Char Siu Bao (barbecue pork bun), Har Gao (prawn dumpling), Xiao Long Bao (soup dumplings), chicken feet (one of my faves, but hubby is not so keen on it so I only get to enjoy it when we have yum cha with friends and family), and Lor Mai Kai (glutinous rice with chicken steamed in lotus leaves):

More dumplings:

Some kailan to offset the unhealthy eating:

Ma Lai Gao (steamed cake), super popular with the kids:
