A stadium-sized space, harbor views, trolley ladies pushing steaming carts loaded with bamboo baskets while barking out the specials, large queues and hundreds of different bites of seafood, meat and sweets: a perfect dim sum Sunday. Go before 11am to avoid the queues. Order jasmine tea or go for a caffeine jolt with a pot of bo lei, wave down a waiter (don’t be shy, or you’ll starve) then tuck into such classics as steamed shrimp dumplings, pork spare ribs in black bean sauce, ma lei go, egg tarts, spring rolls, braised tripe, and sweet tofu. You can also order rice and noodle dishes from the a la carte menu. Dim Sum daily.
