#AFridayIn Hong Kong: Dim sum


Benjamin Carlson takes us to dim sum in Hong Kong.

This past Friday, GlobalPost's Benjamin Carlson took us along for a lively and savory dim sum in Hong Kong.

Surounded by elderly dim sum heavyweights who had camped out for a day full of reading the newspaper and hailing free-wheeling food carts, Ben enjoyed all that a dim sum in Hong Kong has to offer. From pork dumplings, to piping hot tea and egg custard tarts, he never missed a beat.

By the end of the meal, Ben had nearly eaten himself into a food coma — but he left the rest of us wanting more. 

If you missed it live, catch up with Ben's feast in the tweets below. To see the rest of GlobalPost's adventures, check out our series page and follow along: @AFridayIn.
