Me and my old friend dined at this restaurant in The Sau Gor Fish Pot - Yau Ma Tei on October 2017. Many thing we actually enjoyed!
the atomosphere was neo chinese which was really HK! we ordered the base soup and added some cute character dumplings! but it was a bit pricy...
Nice and iconic 湯底 which is what the restaurant famous for. The food is tasty though a bit pricey. 肥牛 and colorful 小籠包 are recommended.
