(Sorry for the pic quality, used my iPhone to take the pics)

Tsim Sha Tsui is a major tourist hub in metropolitan Hong Kong, a great place to shop and dine!On the other hand, Tsim Sha Tsui restaurant is trying to capture the authentic Hong Kong taste that is unique to urban TST, a great challenge indeed for the restaurant. Once you enter the restaurant, you'd notice the TST designed wall and the conveyor belt that is commonly seen in Japanese restaurants. The well lighted restaurant has a motiff of vibrant pink and green which reflects colorful TST living.

It was past 9 and after a 2 hour workout, I was hungry as a bull! Shakey, Edd and I ordered dimsum favorites Shao mai Quail Egg (60php) , Empress Roll (60php) , Ha Kao(65php), Fried Hainan Spring Roll (60php). What you'd notice in the taste is that they use less MSG than the leading dimsum place in Cebu.

Hainan Spring Roll or chinese vegetable spring roll resembles more like the Vietnamese spring roll at Lemongrass which has glass noodles and veggies.

TST Steamed Rice (65php) has more meat but is of smaller serving size than the usual dimsum serving. TST Steamed Rice is also unique among other steamed rice for it has liver bits.

Drinks are as happy as the interior. Ordered the Kiwi Iced Tea(50php), Lemon Iced tea with Kiwi Syrup at the bottom. As for my brother Edd, he had the Strawberry Fantasy(70php) which was a fusion of strawberry and pineapple. Both yummy drinks!

hi Doy:

Mau na lang you didn't go for the conveyor belt na all you can. definitely not worth the experience. This is harbor city food, and the conveyor belt did not have all the things on their regular menu.

@Eudora - I am also a fan of dimsum. But for some reason TST resto didn't quite get the taste of the real TST HK taste. The food is good though and at dimsum fastfood prices.:)
