Endangered and delicious: Panda dumplings served at Hong Kong restaurant for limited time only

We know pandas are endangered, but these we just HAVE to eat!

Dim Sum Bar in Tsim Sha Tsui is now serving panda dumplings that might top Hong Kong’s Hello Kitty restaurant for the cutest food in town.

The Panda Chao Zhou Dumplings (HKD36), which won Gold Award in The Best of the Best Culinary Awards 2015, are hopefully as dangerously delicious as they are adorable.

Head Chef Lung Ku has combined traditional Cantonese flavours with the image of the native Chinese animals to provide a culinary experience just made for Instagram.

However, the bear-shaped bites are also endangered, with the dim sum option only being offered for a limited time from September. Get them while they’re hot!

In the meantime, be like a panda and add some chub chub to your tum tum as Dim Sum Bar also reintroduces its all-you-can-eat promotion. From 2:30pm to 5:30pm for HKD188, or from 6pm to 10pm for HKD208, you can load up with as many baos and buns as your belly can handle.

To be fair, as much dim sum as you can eat in a normal restaurant will probably cost you HKD100 at most – but these guys have panda dumplings.

Dim Sum Bar Shop G103, G/F, Gateway Arcade, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, 8am-10:30pm Monday-Friday, (+852) 2175-3100.

Shop 119, 1/F, Nina Tower Shopping Mall, 8 Yeung Uk Road, Tsuen Wan, 8am-10:30pm Monday-Friday, (+852) 2400-9038.
