Yum Cha is a long held tradition in Hong Kong and one of the favourite pass-times. However, there seems to be no shortage of places to go and so many yum cha; we had talked about some of the best dim sum places already, but they are still a wee bit commercialise for us. So let’s talk old school yum cha place!

Even if you venture out of Hong Kong Island, there are still great old fashioned yum cha places to go. Hoi Lian Restaurant actually do not have an English name, so you would be hard pressed to search for it. Since it’s located in Tsuen Wan, the likelihood of you visiting this lovely Hong Kong style restaurant is even slimmer. Though only 30 – 40 years old, the restaurant still uses the traditional tea pots and push trolleys, and you are guaranteed to be free of any tourists in this place. So if you are looking for something old but different, this is the place.
