Lunch at Wu Kong

Wu Kong is a very popular Shanghai restaurant in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui. It’s been in business since 1984 and business has been really strong since they had a total renovation a few years ago. At lunch they offer their version of dim sum and light meals. It’s easier to get a table during lunch. It’s virtually impossible to eat dinner there unless you have a reservation or go at 6:00 pm.

nice, bright interiors

Most places in Manila that serve gyoza or fried dumplings usually fry the whole dumpling. This is the right way to do it. Just the bottom should be fried to a crisp while the top dough remains soft. This is one of the best fried dumplings I’ve ever eaten.

Their xia long bao or soupy dumplings are excellent and I think better than the ones from Din Tai Fung which supposedly serves the best.
