Real deal dim sum classics
The atmosphere at Golden Sands is Hong Kong authentic – bustling, comfortably noisy, we’re surrounded by a flurry of activity and I love it. It is located in Hurstville after all, one of the predominantly Asian-centric suburbs of Sydney.
Staff are quick on their feet, topping up teas and changing table covers and setting them up in under 5 minutes flat. There’s barely a second when seats and tables aren’t occupied by a hungry patron and their hungry families. Dim sum tastes extremely good when you’re famished.
No FOMO here, as soon as you’re seat every trolley makes a pit stop at newly seated tables. There is a wide selection of yum cha dumplings, all the classics like braised chicken feet fung zao, har gow siu mai pleated dumplings with transparent skin filled with the plumpest prawn and pork. Deep fried bean curd stuffed with a mushroom and water chesnut mixture is all kinds of fun to eat. With dipping sauces galore, sweet chilli, soy and actual slices of chilli ensure that seasoning can be customised so it’s just right for you.
Steaming hot parcels of seafood and meat washed down with fresh chrysanthemum tea, finished with mango cream pancakes or tofu fa silken tofu with ginger syrup sounds like how I’d like every morning to begin and end.
