Sampan Seafood Restaurant, Lamma Island, Hong Kong

For my first week day in Hong Kong I wanted to head out to one of the outlying islands, Lamma Island. It’s probably been 25 years since I’d gone on a day trip to Lamma Island with my parents while I was still in school.

Lamma Island is a short ferry ride from the Central Ferry Terminal and arrives at Yung Shue Wan pier on Lamma Island.

Once you’ve disembarked its a short walk along the waterfront to the township. Along this path are a number of restaurants with open air dining areas that overlook the bay – it’s a very scenic and tranquil place but I can imagine that the weekends would be absolutely hectic.

After the ferry ride I was feeling a bit peckish and I came across a Dim Sum restaurant called Sampan Seafood Restaurant. I’m not a big fish fan but their Dim Sum offerings offered more than just seafood.

From memory I ordered freshly cooked pork dumplings, prawn dumplings as well as some excellent roast pork buns, all washed down with tea.

The price couldn’t be beaten as my brunch was around the HK$110 mark (AU$15). Great value for money.

Next time you’re in Hong Kong jump on the ferry and have a great feed.
