Yum Cha at Fu Tung Guang Dong Restaurant - Wharney Hotel - Wanchai - Hong Kong

Fu Tung Cantonese Restaurant - Wharney Hotel - Wan Chai - Hong Kong
I got to know this place due to its proximity to my old work place...and I fell in love. It is not one of those super famous dim sum restaurant, but because of that, I love this place even more! Making a reservation is easy, great food, affordable, good service. Love!

After months of having crappy dim sums at the one and only dim sum joint below my flat, this weekend yumcha was a treat indeed! Can't wait to go back there.

The fried fish balls was one of the daily specials for that day, and it was delicious! Crispy on the outside, beautifully bouncy on the inside and the hint of fragrant coriander made it just perfect. Served with clam sauce, but since I'm avoiding clams, I dipped it into chilli sauce (dao ban jeong) and it was still wonderful!

Love the har gaw as well. Thin and chewy skin with juicy and succulent fat shrimps inside. Yum!

The lobak gou (pan fried radish cake) is one of my favorite...what makes it different from the crappy ones is...this one doesn't have the overwhelming amount of flour the crappy one does. Lovely!

The savory pastry with radish filling were wonderful. Light, flaky, not greasy, with tasty filling.

The savory sticky rice uses mixed grain, which I love...and it has subtly flavored filling, which is nicely balanced with the rich salted egg yolk. Precious!

On to the sweets...love their the custard yolk buns. Fluffy bun with runny custardy, yolky, sweet filling. Sigh...I miss them already!

I am not a big fan of grapefruit...but I must admit that it has a certain refreshing quality, perfect to balance the richness of this sweet and creamy mango grapefruit dessert. Each and every spoonful has chunks of mangoes. Delightful!

As if mango pudding isn't already sinful, I still managed to drench it with evaporated milk.

The first layer was clear gelatinous mango jelly, with a few chunks of mangoes on top, and the second layer was creamy, silky, smooth mango pudding with lots of mango chunks. I couldn't ask for more...it was yummy to the max!

...we were totally satisfied, and the whole meal costs us HK$108 per person.

Can't wait to go back :)

Good dim sum really is hard to find! You've got all of my favorites here. Sigh. That's what I should have done this three day weekend.
