Serving traditional fare
Lin Heung was founded in 1926 and counts among the last few of its kind. Though known as ‘tea house’ this eatery serves a fantastic array of dim sum all day long which explains the steady stream of diners. However, there is a change of gears for dinner as a wide range of traditional signature dishes are served many of which continue to command a loyal following among Hong Kong-ers.
A versatile menu
They have an eclectic range of dim sum on offer – Steamed Chicken in Tofu Roll, the delectable Siu Mai (pork dumplings), Steamed beef meatballs, Char siu bao (buns stuffed with barbequed pork), ha gow (dainty-looking shrimp dumplings) and a lot more.
That being said, unless you have a local to guide you, we suggest that you order the dim sum as take-away. There’s a lot of competitive self-service that could, let’s say, ruin your appetite. Dinner, though, is a relatively placid affair. You can especially enjoy their famed signature dish, the Lin Heung Special Duck made using traditional methods which mandates that is ordered a day earlier.
