Hong Kong: the total 3-week food score

Featured: Dim sum (yum cha) at The Graces, Lee Theatre Plaza, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong – 10 Jun 2012.

I wrote recently about what I ate during the 2nd-quarter of 2012 on my continuing around-the-world (RTW) trip. As I spent over 3 weeks of June in Hong Kong, I wanted to give the food in Hong Kong its fair due: look, salivate, and enjoy. Also, check out this visually appealing beginners’ guide to dim sum.
