Good Hong Kong dishes.


Probably the best shumai that I have ever tasted.


I heard that you can get delicious xiaolongbao.
Reservations are possible for dinner. Lunch can only be reserved for courses.
I visited during lunch time on a weekday.
Opened at 11:30 and arrived at 11:10.
There were already about 15.6 people in line.
I barely managed to get a seat in the first round.

The rotation is quite fast.
I think seats will come around surprisingly quickly.

I was a little confused as the menu was extensive.
I ordered the Xiaolongbao set.
Xiaolongbao was made in-house.
It is served in a piping hot steamer.
All flavors are strong.
Enjoy changing the taste with vinegar, black vinegar, chili oil, etc.
I'll enjoy having this.
(With explanation from the store staff)
After the taste changes, the taste becomes surprisingly light.
It felt even more delicious.
It's no wonder it's so popular as it has plenty of volume.
You cannot make reservations for lunch, but if you have booked a course, you can make reservations.
Lunch is only a mini course.

Because it is a popular store
I think you are quite busy.
The staff's response was also quite good.
This is a store I would like to visit again.
