7 Top DIM SUM Spots In Guangzhou Worth Flying To China For

Now you don’t need to be shouted at for the sake of good dim sum.
22 March 2019

Get ready to be surprised.

The words “Cantonese,” “dim sum” and “Hong Kong” are usually mentioned in the same breath. When we think of dim sum, we naturally think of Hong Kong. But what if you find out you’ve been living a lie this whole time? That the best dim sum is not to be found in the Pearl of the Orient after all? That you don’t need to subject yourself to some yelling from the service staff to enjoy the best dim sum? That you don’t need to pay an astronomical sum for good food? That’s right — the best dim sum is actually found where it all began: Canton, now known as Guangzhou.

The cherry on top? If you’re in Hong Kong, as my group was, travelling to Guangzhou is now much easier and faster with the September 2019 opening of the high speed rail in West Kowloon, Hong Kong. It has been cut down from close to two hours to just 47 minutes. From Guangzhou South station, you can easily hop onto the city’s metro to go into the city centre, and there, get ready to feast on their culinary delights. Once you have had dim sum at these places, you’ll likely never look at a Hong Kong dim sum restaurant in the same way again, much less a Singaporean one.
