whenever i am in hong kong, i always like to eat their dessert especially those in tangchao.
taste is heavenly good.
For those who have not been to tangchao recently - it has shifted further down the road (in the direction AWAY from Harbour City.

New avant-garde decor. Food tastes the same though. Can't recall if there is a price increase in some items, but the tau hway still cost the same.

international house is excellent, stayed there during my trip about 2 months ago. For dim sum, just go through the back door, walk to the next block of building in front of u (i forgot the name of the building, it's the other one that sells toys, other than ctma). there's a restaurant on the 3rd level, you'll have to take a lift up.
