Disneyland Hong Kong serves cutest dim sum in the world
Going to Disneyland anywhere in the world is a special experience that’s impossible to forget. But the Hong Kong location adds just a little more magic to your life. The dim sum in the park’s Crystal Lotus restaurant is shaped in all sorts of Disney characters. And each and every one of these edible items looks adorable.
One of the favorites making its round on the internet is Olaf, the gleeful snowman from Frozen – a steamed white red bean bun with twig arms, a carrot nose, and carefully crafted eyes. Looking at the art on your plate grinning at you, it’s hard to imagine having to eat the little bundle of joy on your plate.
Other Disney dim sums include the Toy Story aliens, Baymax from Big Hero 6, three little pigs, and all sorts of other minor characters you may recognize from your favorite movies. The very popular lunch is special and requires a reservation 48 hours in advance.
In fact, the lunch is not just very popular with restaurant guests, but Crystal Lotus also won the Best of the Best Culinary Awards 2009 – Gold with Distinction Medal from Dim-Sum Category. For 388 HKD (or about $50) you can get your very own Disney-themed dim sum until March of 2017.
The Hong Kong Disneyland opened in 2005 and was the second Asian Disney theme park after the Tokyo location opened in 1983. The third location in Asia is Shanghai Disneyland Park, which opened June 16, 2016.
