Chinese Tea and Dumplings

Luk yu tea house, Hong Kong

For its ambience, this is perhaps the most authentic reminder of old Hong Kong. In a clear break with Cantonese fashion, the Luk Yu is neither flooded with cold neon light nor dressed up in gratuitous 1930s decor. Hong Kong business tycoons and gangsters alike can be spotted sealing deals or relaxing with their newspapers in the discreet wooden booths.

Staff used to pride themselves on their aloofness, particularly to foreigners, but in recent years company policy has changed. Now, you will be greeted with a smile, a menu in English (if you need it) and friendly, fast service. Head upstairs, where the regulars eat. Come early if you can: before 10am, wrinkly-faced Cantonese waitresses make the rounds with trays of sundry dumplings.

Its pretty much like the Koshy's of Hong Kong !

Excellent. Truly.
One missed the wrestlers when in Mysore (referring to your earlier post). I was but relegated to the confines of infy-ness :)

I'm overwhelmingly sad, Akshay. Why'd you do it? do get in touch if you feel like it.

I had dim sum this morning and it was so crowded, loud, dirty and busy.

These pictures make me miss what 'authentic' is.
