#5: Maxim’s Palace

Last but not least, here is where you will be able to find the true authentic dim sum experience. In almost every dim sum restaurant these days, you order your dishes from a menu. But the traditional dim sum was not served this way in the past. Instead, a cart would be delivered to you with dishes on it. From there, you would pick your preferred dishes. Thankfully, this practice has not been completely discarded as it can still be found at Maxim’s Palace.
