After my trip to Tim Ho Wan I was filled with dim sum confidence. I believed that there could be no wrong. So off we went to Lei Gardens in the IFC which is a much praised group with branches in Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore and China.
To cut to the chase it was unremarkable. Apart from some exceptional light char siu bao or Cantonese barbecue pork buns the flavours and tastes have drifted away into the abyss of forgetable meals.
I was a bit disappointed by this as Lei Gardens got it right aesthetically; from the modern dark wood and frosted glass to the presentation of the food, it is a cut above many places in Hong Kong. That said, peach tableclothes – why?
