Steamy treats at Ding Dim

If you only can eat in one place in Hong Kong, make it this small spot. The dim sum is to die for.

Stuck in the middle of touristy restaurants in the expat district is this Hong Kong institution, which for almost 50 years has ruled the dim sum nest. Aficionados of the small steamed dishes will discover here what they're really supposed to taste like. Infinitely light rice dumplings with fillings and toppings of unquestionable freshness, they are incredibly delicious — and copious! So don't be put off by the long queue outside. Ding Dim only has four or five tables, but the turnover is fast. Study the menu while you wait and write down your choices; this will save time once seated. Don't pass on dessert, they're amazing! And if your eyes are bigger than your stomach, don't worry, they will pack up whatever's left into doggy bags.
