This is post #7, part of my #50PostsIn50Days personal challenge to document my first 100 days in Hong Kong. Other posts in this series may be found at the bottom of the original post. This is also one of many posts that are part of the series Jen's Guide - Best Places to Eat in Hong Kong for Visitors
Fu Ho is one of many, many traditional higher-end Cantonese restaurants in the greater Tsim Sha Tsui area. Located down in one of the basement levels of the Miramar Shopping Complex, Fu Ho offers all of your well-known luxurious Cantonese fare (think bird's nest, abalone, goose web, shark's fin, and sea cucumber). It has been open for over a decade and specializes in fine dried seafood.
To be perfectly honest, we stopped by here for lunch one day when we were hungry. We saw that it had one Michelin star, so we figured it would be pretty good. Surprisingly, the place was not super full and we were able to grab a table immediately. Because we were there for dim sum, we did not really enjoy most of the luxurious items for which the restaurant is known.
Nevertheless, I thought it would be worth sharing our experience. The dim sum is very good, and if you're looking for a place to grab lunch and you're in TST, it's a perfectly fine option. Some day if I ever go back for a fancy dinner, I'll update this post!
Dim sum items were excellent, from the steamed shrimp dumplings to the chiu chow style dumplings.
We also ordered a generous plate of rice noodles stir fried with shrimp roe, which was good.
Like I mentioned above, I have hardly scratched the surface of what this restaurant can do. Still, their dim sum at lunch is good and if you're in Mira Place One had having trouble getting into a restaurant, you can always consider this place.
