Although there is nothing particularly “Hong Kong” or Cantonese about this restaurant at Dempsey block 7 apart from the fact that they serve dim sum for lunch (the dishes here are pretty standard Chinese fare), Grand Hong Kong is pretty decent if you’re growing a little tired of the many other contemporary European cafes or restaurants in the area. As you enter the venue, you will be greeted by a gleaming yellow mirror ball of sorts on the entrance that sets the mood for the place. While not as posh as other contemporaries like Imperial Treasure, you pay a slightly lower price here for quality food. While our bowls of fish maw and hot and sour soup were a little disappointing, the mains of half a roasted chicken and pork ribs in plum sauce were good; especially the earlier, with its super crispy chicken skin. Plus, service is efficient (they changed our plates and topped up our tea at the right intervals) and its alfresco dining area overlooking the trendy Dempsey crowd certainly adds to the buzz.
