Man Wah’s Hong Kong Dim Sum at the Mandarin Oriental New York

Thursday, July 4, 2013 0 No tags Permalink 0

Hello! Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday. I am staying inside with the air conditioning at full blast because it is too hot for anything else. Prosecco, gelato, and ice cold showers are the only things I crave today ^_^ 

For you dim sum fans, take note! This is one worth splurging for and you only have until Sunday (7/7) to check it out. The chefs from Man Wah in Hong Kong are over at the Mandarin Oriental New York and they’ve put together a stellar menu. It’s served in the same room as afternoon tea (here, here, and here) and is a welcome change from NYC’s down and dirty Chinatown dim sum (which isn’t even that good).

See my Serious Eats post for a look behind the scenes with Chef Man Sing Lee – he’s been making dim sum at Man Wah for 26 years.  

On the menu are steamed tiger prawn dumplings…

…scallop siu mai,

…black pepper wagyu beef puffs (this one was my favorite!)…

…char siu bao…

 …deep-fried shrimp spring rolls, pork and black truffle dumplings, morel and wild mushroom dumplings…

…black sesame filled jin dui…

…and osmanthus jelly.
