Dim Sum Lunch at Pak Loh Chiu Chow Restaurant

We liked the food and ambiance at Pak Loh Chiu Chow restaurant so much the last time we were there we knew we had to go back. Last holy week we went to Hong Kong and had our first lunch there and ordered from their dim sum menu. Before our favorite restaurant for dim sum was Chuk Yuen Seafood restaurant. But after eating the dim sum at Pak Loh we have a new favorite.

Chuk Yuen serves very good and consistent quality dim sum. We never had anything bad there but the dim sum at Pak Loh is on a different level. Everything we ordered was simply exquisite. The flavors were all perfect and spot on. Nothing was greasy and all the dishes were cooked with perfect timing.

I don’t like siomai and was expecting dumplings instead but these were the best siomai or siu mai I’ve ever eaten.

This was a medium bowl of soup good for 2 to share. The fish balls, fish cake and fresh fish were generous.

Normally kale or other seasonal vegetables are served simply poached with a side of oyster sauce. Here it was topped with sauteed assorted fresh mushrooms. I loved this dish!

This chicken dish wasn’t part of the dim sum menu but it’s a specialty of Chiu Chow cuisine and my all time favorite dish since I was a child. I’d be happy to eat just this chicken and a bowl of rice. I don’t know what chinjew sauce is made of but it’s a bit salty and simply yummy. The green veggies were fried to a crisp and was perfect dipped in the sauce. Everyone must try this dish. Must, must, must!

The dessert is another Chiu Chow specialty. The brown filling was peanut paste while the black was sesame paste. Another must order when in a Chiu Chow restaurant.

Traditionally super strong and bitter tea is served at the beginning and end of every meal in a Chiu Chow restaurant. Here they even had fancy tea cup holders.

The dim sum in Pak Loh Chiu Chow was not cheap but it was definitely worth it. You get what you pay for and more. It was probably at par with the three Michelin stars restaurant, Lung King Heen which costs much, much more.
