On this trip to Hong Kong, I found myself much more interested in rustic Chinese eateries rather than visiting the more modern and hyped up restaurants.
Choi Lung Restaurant is located at the mountain’s mid-levels providing a resting sanctuary and fuel-up for hikers before they continue their ascent up the steep slopes. The restaurant is very old-school.
Since you are dining in the mountains, FAR from any supermarkets, the vegetables are literally picked straight from a neighbours garden that day. Hence a plate of veges was a must order. Fresh vegetables are much sweeter in taste and have a crisper texture. I couldn’t stop munching away on this!
After the extremely filling dim sum meal we took a stroll around the area. Since we were up near the peak, the air was extremely refreshing in contrast to the city polluted air I consume day to day living in Hong Kong, and London. To our surprise, we encountered a small group of goats snuggling up beside a black car! (making us laugh at the thought whether goats have mistaken the car for a big mama goat…)
I recommend for anyone visiting Hong Kong to try this novel dim sum experience. Although Choi Lung isn’t the easiest place to reach (apparently you have to take a bus from Tsuen Wan or the other option is to hike) its definitely worth the trek for the amazing views,
