On our last day in Hong Kong we and some friends decided to splurge and enjoy a dim sum luncheon at one of the city’s finest restaurants — Spring Moon in the Peninsula Hotel, located on Salisbury Road near the Star Ferry Terminal in the Tsim Sha Tsui District of Kowloon.  As shown below, we ordered up a feast and had a light supper that night! Eating at Spring Moon this visit keeps our record intact – it’s the only restaurant we’ve dined at on every visit to Hong Kong

“The Peninsula’s Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant presents fine Chinese cuisine in its purest form, steered by renowned Chinese Cuisine Executive Chef Gordon Leung.
