My absolute favourite place. Only downside is that you can’t make reservations in advance. But this is possibly the last remaining push cart Dim Sum locations in Hong Kong, although certainly the largest. There’s something to be said about the nostalgia, and the excitement of instant gratification - I see, I eat, I conquer.
Maxim’s Palace is the ultimate destination for upscale Dim Sum dining. Underneath an ornate ceiling and crystal chandeliers, small plates of these Chinese delights are still served in pushcarts, almost like a mobile buffet—a foregotten practice due to the cramped spaces that characterize urban Hong Kong eateries.
The dumplings at Maxim’s bring old Hong Kong to present day without losing authenticity, presentation, and flavor. They never skimp on quality, each dish a delight to the tastebuds.
Favorites include steamed dishes like Shrimp Dumpling, Glutinous Rice with Assorted Meat Wrapped in Lotus Leaf, and Chinese Sponge Cake!
