Mongkok Dim Sum @ East Coast Road 旺角點心

Mongkok Dim Sum 1

Mongkok Dim Sum has earned quite a few bits of rave reviews over the years though may not be as popular as Swee Choon. The outlet at East Coast road is air conditioned with simple interior setup similar to a coffee shop. No service charge help to keep the price affordable. The outlet serves traditional Hong Kong Dim Sum and simple Tze Char dishes.

House Special Prawn Dumpling $3.8

Mongkok Dim Sum 3

Prawn dumpling or Har Gow, seriously, we will not likely to order this dish if not their house specialty, simply because of the past disappointing experience. So, will the prawn dumpling here suffer for the same fate?

The answer is No. The prawn dumpling actually impressed us with its paper thinned wrap and the succulent juicy shrimp. A good one lived up to the name of their speciality.

Mongkok’s Pork Dumpling $3.8

Mongkok Dim Sum 7

Better known as Siew Mai, this is another one of the house specialities at Mongkok Dim Sum, the filling was well seasoned with quality ingredients. One of the better Siew Mai worth to order.

Steamed Pork Belly Bun $7.0

Mongkok Dim Sum 6

The pork belly was uninspiring with its bog standard seasoning and lack of the tenderly meat texture. A dish we don’t recommend.

Shanghai Pork Dumpling $3.8

Mongkok Dim Sum 11

Good Xiao Long Bao comes with fragrant filling wrapped with the sweet and salivating soup in the bubbly soft dough skin. Unfortunately we were not able to experience all the goodness of a good dumpling here.

Mongkok Dim Sum 10

The fun of the oozing out juices blasted into the mouth from the dumpling was missing, neither the taste nor the texture were able to excite our tastebuds as well.

Seafood Hor Fun $6.0

Mongkok Dim Sum 4

The flat noodle may well infused with char aroma, what a pity the gravy doused over it was missing the right seasoning that bring up the overall flavour of a good hor fun.

Frog Porridge $8.5

Mongkok Dim Sum 9

The frog porridge could not differentiated from most of the ordinary frog porridge out there, the art of a good porridge relied on the smoothness of the texture and the richness of the rice grains, too watery or gluey could affect the overall tastefulness and obviously Mongkok has some gaps to bridge for the porridge’s texture and the seasoning.

Our verdict on Mongkok Dim Sum

There are hits and misses at Mongkok Dim Sum, however, the house specialities could provide you the assurance of some good quality dim sum and are good picks when dining here.
