The China Club

In 1998, I had probably the best dim sum of my life at this beautiful, historic restaurant (which is essentially like a private club) in Central Hong Kong. I have wanted to return ever since that meal, and my visit in November, 2011 was not disappointing. The wine list is relatively limited, but there is certainly a very good selection of Champagnes, the ideal match up with dim sum. We had a huge array of dim sum, including crispy chicken stuffed dumplings, shrimp dumplings, hairy crab dumplings, pork dumplings, and vegetable dumplings as well as exquisite seafood noodle soup and giant prawns. The food was sensational, the service impeccable and the ambiance about as good as one could ask for. It felt like what it must have been like eating in a Chinese restaurant 50-100 years ago as little appears to have changed inside. I highly recommend a stop here if you are visiting Hong Kong as it is a feast for the palate as well as the eyes.
