Sunday Dim Sum at Fuk Lam Moon - Probably the best dim sum in Hong Kong

Last weekend , after a though night out , my boyfriend decided to take me for dim sum as he knows that they are my absolute craving ! I could eat them every day , but alright: nothing better than a dim sum feast on a Sunday morning after a long night out !
Well, by morning I mean 3 pm for us ! haha
He wanted to try Ovologue in Wanchai but by the time we took a taxi and arrived there , the restaurant was closed ! I think this was my lucky day and we ended up walking towards Fook Lam moon that I've been dying to try for so long ! So we arrived there and it was already closing! I think they read the sadness in my eyes and told us to hurry up to oder and have a sit !
finally time has come to enjoy Fook Lam moon Dim sum!

The group’s flagship eatery; this Fook Lam Moon restaurant is situated in the Wan Chai district of Hong Kong island, right next to the commercial districts of Admiralty and Central.

The four-storey complex offers diners a luxurious setting in which to enjoy a wide variety of exotic seafood and meat dishes, spanning giant garoupa, giant eel, pigeon and seasonal seafood.

Dim Sum, a Cantonese favourite is available every day with special varieties on the weekends. Private rooms are also available for big parties or when privacy is desirable.

Steamed prawn dumplings with vegetables 60 HKD
The fillings are a combination of shrimps and diced, crunchy vegetables. Great way to start! The rice skin was just perfect and the flavor unpredictable ! loved it !

Special of the day : Steamed prawn and spinach dumplings 60 HKD
Really good even though it was not my favorite. Very delicate in flavor. Perfectly steamed.

Hacao : Steamed prawn dumplings 60 HKD
The texture , the taste , the combination of prawn and bamboo shoots ... nothing else to add but : YUMMY!

Stir fried egg noodles with king prawns , fungus and vegetables. 268 HKD
The texture of the noodles was amazing : perfectly cooked but still crunchy on the top ! The prawns were big , juicy and a wonderful flavor !

For my Swedish boyfriend! Steamed minced beef balls

Deep fried bean curd skin rolls with fresh shrimps 60 HKD
I think this dish has to be my favorite of the day together with the wantons but here I got to apologize as I got overwhelmed and just ate them up before I realized I totally forgot to take pictures haha .
To go back to the bean curd skin rolls, one word : Heaven ! just go there , try them and then you can die and go to heaven !

Deep Fried prawn spring rolls 60 HKD
I usually don't love spring rolls: too oily , not crunchy enough , the filling is way too often tasteless... well Fook lam moon proved me wrong and I am glad about that ! Now I now I love spring rolls and I will come back here to get some more of those yummy little ones !

Steamed rice rolls with fresh shrimps 78HKD

The flavors in this soy sauce and fresh chilies in by far the best I have ever tasted !
I was really impressed and even more when I realized that even my BF who isn't usually a big fan of dim sum, loved it !
We will come back for sure ! A must try !
