We ate a lot of dim sum in Hong Kong. A lot. Like almost every day. And Michelin-starred dim sum at that. We tried the Tsim Sha Tsui Lei Garden, and actually went to Din Tai Fung twice as we liked it so much (both Lei Garden and Din Tai Fung have one Michelin star). At the top of our list, however, was the three-star Cantonese restaurant Lung King Heen, on the fourth floor of the Four Seasons Hotel. Lung King Heen has a full Cantonese menu, but we went for dim sum and stuck to that plan ordering all but two items on the menu. We liked the way they dressed up some typical dim sum dishes (like the siu mai) and added a few things that you'd have a hard time finding elsewhere (hello...abalone puff!). All dim sum should be this good.
In terms of the photos, I was happy to be seated next to a window in the middle of the afternoon with mostly cloudy skies. After having taken a lot of food shots on this trip practically in the dark, I was happy to be able to stop down to f/5.6 to get more depth of field and not worry about noise from high ISO at all. I think these are the most successful food pictures from the entire trip—and all because I had good light.
