Dim Sum Library

Hong Kong, June 2017 – I have passed by Dim Sum Library a number of times, but always thought that it was a bar. At first glance, it didn’t resemble the typical Chinese restaurant. Tastefully decorated with dark wood furniture and gold Art Deco-like wall panels, it exuded Western influences.

Mr. King and I were pleasantly surprised by its fresh take on dim sum, served throughout lunch and dinner.   Aside from the traditional dim sum like steamed barbeque pork bun and crystal har gau (shrimp dumplings), the menu offered a range of innovative dishes, which used Western ingredients such as porcini mushrooms, black truffles and Iberico pork.

Dim Sum Library is a great place to entertain with its smart casual ambience.  This new breed of modernised Chinese cuisine is ideal for those adventurous souls who are not afraid to experiment with the unconventional.
