Experience authentic Hong Kong cuisine in Kyoto

Old Hongkong Restaurant Kyoto

Old Hongkong Restaurant Kyoto
The popular Chinese restaurant Old Hongkong Restaurant Kyoto is found within COCON KARASUMA, which is at Hankyu Karasuma Station; there is also a direct connection from the Kyoto Subway's Shijo Station. It's a wonderful restaurant that offers not only Hong Kong cuisine (a sort of evolved Cantonese cuisine), but also authentic Hong Kong-style dim sum, at a location close to the station.
All the chefs at Old Hongkong Restaurant Kyoto are from Hong Kong. Some ingredients are also directly imported...more from Hong Kong, which gives the food a true Hong Kong flavor. The seafood is an especially good part of the extensive menu. The dishes use fish from the fish tank at the front of the restaurant, making it something unique. Also, the dim sum is made fresh when you order, making it even better. Lunch is a yum cha course full of volume; the dim sum menu features over 60 different items and carried on a wagon, allowing you to see and order what you want directly.
Old Hongkong Restaurant Kyoto knows there's more to offering an authentic dining experience than merely maintaining traditions; they're always trying out new approaches, using a variety of ingredients. Come to Karasuma Station, and try some ever-evolving Hong Kong-style cuisine.

For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
When I entered, the first thing I noticed was the large fish tank. The dishes are made using the fish swimming in this tank, and it tastes truly like Hong Kong, which is rare for Kyoto.
I recommend the dim sum menu, which has over 60 items. They don't start making it until you order, creating an enjoyable experience with fresh, authentic dim sum--try it.
A restaurant staffed with chefs from Hong Kong, cooking Cantonese cuisine. The wide variety of dim sum, as well as the seafood dishes using fish swimming in the in-store fish tank are both must-eats. There are private rooms available if you want to eat in peace. After eating, see the rest of COCON KARASUMA and go shopping!
