For six years now, Central-set Duddell’s has set the benchmark for fine-dining Cantonese cuisine. In particular, its dimsum menu has found favour with discerning diners across the city, lauded as being equal parts innovative and an homage to the culinary tradition’s established flavours.
Now, Duddell’s is introducing a special iteration of its much-loved all-you-can-eat dimsum buffet every Monday to Thursday starting in July. This new take sees the restaurant take guests back to Hong Kong’s ’80s-era heyday, serving up not only classics like steamed shrimp dumplings (har gau) and chicken’s feet (feng zao), but also revives long-forgotten favourites from that time.
As such, the new all-you-can-eat ‘80’s dim sum menu include additions such as Duddell’s signature pork and shrimp dumpling, juicy beef dumpling with lard, minced beef ball with bean curd skin, steamed bean curd sheet roll filled with collagen-rich duck feet and taro, and shrimp spring roll with garlic. New desserts include the Chinese traditional sweet soup of green mung bean with fried seaweed, and the beloved coconut milk pudding with red bean.
In all, over 30 varieties of dimsums, dishes and desserts will be on offer. What’s more, there’s even a free-flow drink package (HK$148 + 10% service charge per head) inclusive of two hours of house wines, spirits, soft drinks and beers. With the unlimited buffet priced at just HK$268 + 10% service charge per head, there’s really nothing stopping you from diving in, chopsticks brandished, to your heart’s content.
