Dim Sum @ Maxim's Palace, Hong Kong

What a posh place! It was a ballroom full of hanging crystal chandeliers and elegant tableware. The dim sum were more daintily made than usual but not to the extent of fine dining daintiness. Taste-wise, it was good but not extraordinarily outstanding. I wish we had gone to sample Tim Ho Wan, the world's cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant, for comparison =(

A few blogs have commented on the confusing directions in getting to City Hall where Maxim's Palace is located at and I have to agree too. Also note that the ballroom is located on the upper levels of City Hall so do not mistake the cafe bearing a similar name on the ground floor as serving dim sum =)
