Classy Cantonese: A stalwart Hong Kong favorite among pin stripers and government officials, Fook Lam Moon takes classy Cantonese to the next level.
Look & Feel: Smart casual is the order of the day in this venerable establishment. Catering towards a business crowd, you’ll find lots of little nooks and private dining rooms set aside. The main area has been nicknamed the “Cafeteria for the Wealthy” so you might even spot a notable personality while you’re there.
On the Menu: The award-winning signatures include whole abalone with duck feet and pomelo skin, as well as roast suckling pig, double-boiled soups and delicate dim sums.
Service: Unlike most traditional Hong Kong dim sum restaurants, the service is actually extremely patient and attentive. Go figure!
Jeng: The dim sum here can’t be beat. The cheong fun rolls ($70) are extra velvety, the dumpling skins extra delicate, and the haam shui gok ($60) have the most kick-ass crispy shells.
Not So Jeng: While dim sum prices are reasonable for a restaurant of its caliber, be prepared to pay $1,600 for a bowl of bird’s nest congee with minced partridge, or $600 for a roast goose during dinnertime.
Great For: Business lunches, treating your granny.
FYI: Fook Lam Moon means “good fortune arriving at your door.”
