Luk Yu Tea House
Established in 1933, Luk Yu Tea House is one of Hong Kong’s oldest and most famous tea houses. It is a long time favorite of many famous writers. This place has an old school feel to it, almost as if you’ve stepped back to a much simpler time and place.
Luk Yu Tea House’s a la carte menu features the best teas in Hong Kong, and a dim sum menu that changes weekly. Tea specialties are the following: Black Tea, Green Tea, Jasmine Tea, and Narcissus Tea. For food, try the Crisp Chicken Stuffed with Glutinous Rice, Sweet and Sour Pork, Fish Rolls, and the Grilled Yunnan Ham and Sliced Pigeon. Expect to pay HK$150-HK$300.
It is recommended that you have your hotel make the reservation if you’re foreign as they don’t interact well with foreigners. For the shutterbugs, Stanley Street is a good place to buy photographic equipment.
