We had Tim Sum breakfast here twice when we stayed in a nearby hotel. The very friendly and helpful cashier lady recommended us their specialty. Though was in the very early weekend morning, the restaurant was already very crowded with their local senior citizen. Extensive variety of Tim Sum, low price at total HK75 for 5 dishes.

Pros: **
Cons: **

It is zongzi time again.

I enjoyed my first 2 a few minutes ago.

Sticky rices, herbs & beans wrapped in bamboo leaves & boiled or steamed.

Over the next few days I will try many different varieties around Hong Kong.

Miu Fat Chai sells excellent ones - vegans be sure to specify 'no egg'.

Family owned restaurant - maybe 50+ years in this location - I first visitied here 27 years ago.

I buy the dim-sum from here on my way to & from projects.

Many friends eat here & love the food / atmosphere.

A little English spoken.

Low prices.

Can be very busy.

You often have to share tables.

The tradition - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zongzi
Zongzi is traditionally eaten during the Dragon Boat Festival (Mandarin: Duanwu; Cantonese: Tuen Ng) which falls on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar (approximately late May to mid-June), commemorating the death of Qu Yuan, a famous Chinese poet from the kingdom of Chu who lived during the Warring States period. Known for his patriotism, Qu Yuan tried unsuccessfully to warn his king and countrymen against the expansionism of their Qin neighbors. When the Qin general Bai Qi took Yingdu, the Chu capital, in 278 BC, Qu Yuan's grief was so intense that he drowned himself in the Miluo river after penning the Lament for Ying. According to legend, packets of rice were thrown into the river to prevent fish from eating the poet's body.[1] Another version states that zongzi were given to placate a dragon that lived in the river.
