Hong Kong Installment 12
Our lunch choice was recommended by several people as a fun place to go and obviously a well established eatery. It is called Maxims and is a dim sum restaurant in city hall. It was absolute mayhem, but organised too and we were greeted by a crowd of people all waiting for tables and a scarey maitre d' who was a slight, beautiful woman with a very scarey attitude. She was calling out the numbers like an auctioneer and if you didn't respond within seconds, your table was gone. It was a bit of a stressful experience, but once we got our table we were happy and loaded up with lots of wonderful dim sum, taken from the trolleys that were constantly patrolling the room. It was well worth the wait.
