Hong Kong is the birthplace of dim sum. For the five months I was there, I was lucky enough to go out for it at least once every two weeks. It was available everywhere- from the five-star hotels downtown to random street vendors. Yet the best dim sum I’ve had to date was for a late night snack one night at an inconspicuous hole-in-the-wall place in a more sketchy area of town with a friend who spoke Cantonese. She said, “we’re going to do this the right way” and she ordered some of the more traditional dishes. It was probably one of the most memorable meals of my experience abroad.
