The dim sum in Hong Kong can be considered among the best that there is anywhere in the world, and if you’re in the city, then the most famous name in dim sum is Sportful Garden. They have outlets all over the country, and down in the dining drag of Tsim Sha Tsui, you can find them on Granville Road. From their location there they serve up all things dumpling, stuffed with meat, vegetables, mushroom or seafood, and promptly steamed or fried to perfection before being deposited on your table with aplomb in the true Cantonese style. The decor, too, is open and grand, with chandeliers and elegant interior design, providing the perfect place for weddings and banquets.
The menu does feature all the favourites from the Chinese canon, so as you can imagine, the seafood and vegetarian options are extensive. We’d go for the red rice dumpling, wrapped in lotus leaves, or the crispy beancurd in soy sauce, or even the steamed shrimp dumplings with gold foil, if we were feeling decadent. The more obscure offerings bear mentioning as well: steamed chicken feet with abalone sauce, or duck tongue, served with jelly fish, will excite the adventurous of palate, as will the pork trotter, also served with jelly fish. Take a trip over to Granville Road in Tsim Sha Tsui for some of the finest dim sum to be found anywhere in Hong Kong at Sportful Garden: just remember to reserve your table in advance, as they do fill up on occasion.
