Jing Fong is a gigantic restaurant in the heart of Chinatown, specializing in dim sum, but with also a large menu featuring fried rice, noodles, seafood...We tried to go there few times, but it was always packed and we were discouraged by the long wait. So, one day, we went early, very early...

When we arrived, the hostess greeted us and brought us to the restaurant, located on the second floor and accessible via the escalator. When we arrived, we could not help but notice the huge chandeliers that were a bit over the top...

Then, we entered into the large dining room and realized that we were among the first customers (I told you we went very early...).

We went there for dim sum and only looked at the dim sum menu, discarding the regular one. So, after some tea, we ordered our food. But before that, I should probably mention their wine cellar that you can see next to the bar, in the back of the dining room: it has various kinds of wines, some from France, Italy...

We had great dim sum at Jing Fong and I am glad we were able to go there. Would I go back? Certainly, maybe to try some of their regular menu dishes (I love chicken pan fried noodles or Peking duck), but will for sure go early again...

Enjoy (I did)!
