Ho's Dim Sim Kitchen ~ Chinese - Pitt Street City
We find great dim sum and get mugged by a possum.
The Haymarket end of Pitt Street in the City is a buzzy place these days, lots of people and plenty of new places to eat. We find ourselves in need of a wee snack and stumble upon Ho's Dim Sim Kitchen. We are drawn in by the hot, ready-to-go dim sum. We try a golden fish ball, a prawn and chive roll and a bbq pork bun. Yum.
You could stock up here on dim sum and have yum cha at home.
There's also some interesting frozen side dishes such as duck feet, beef brisket and goat casserole.
And lots of sweeties.
But we're just here for a quick hot fix.
The place was hugely popular, stocks were running low, that's the bbq pork pie above.
Ho's Dim Sim Kitchen was very popular, it felt like a little piece of Hong Kong in Sydney.
To continue the Hong Kong vibe we go to Paddy's Market for the infamous Sunday afternoon fruit and veg sell-off.
5.30pm on Sunday at Paddy's Market is as close as you can get to a busy Chinese market overseas. It's frenetic and fun, the produce is cheap and in season. We walk out with a huge bag of fruit and veg for $5. We are accosted by possum in the park near Sydney Uni, he demands a banana or our life, it's a tough city.
Ho's Dim Sim Kitchen is at 429a Pitt Street, City. The Haymarket end. You can also check their wares and order online from their website: http://www.hosdimsimkitchen.com.au/
