With the gentrification of Hong Kong Island, it’s often quite sad to see old shops close and then mediocre yet expensive shops replacing them – so when I was looking for a place for Dim Sum, I tried to look for something a little more traditional – which brought me to Three Minus One Restaurant in Sai Ying Pun.
The shop name (in Chinese) – is the traditional way of writing the numerals which I love quite a bit.
Once inside, you basically sit in whatever spot you can fit into (the shop is quite tiny) and you get a full view of the dim sum masters at work.
To move with the time, one interest thing is that the place actually has an English menu – which makes it easier for any visitors to Hong Kong.
Food wise, I’d say that the dumplings and siu mai are delicious and very traditional in the way it’s cooked, although it was on the salty side and I personally think I was expecting a little more – that said, the food was enjoyable and the atmosphere is definitely worth the experience!
