MingHin Cuisine

MingHin Cuisine is my favorite spot for dim sum.  Red Chinese floating lanterns line the exterior of the restaurant that leads you into the gorgeous wood paneled foyer.  The natural wood trimmed walls and synthetic elements of glass chandeliers and geometric mirrors provide a warm and modern atmosphere in the restaurant.  Floor to ceiling windows illuminates the large space with natural light.  The dim sum menu is impressively large with a variety of different flavors and types of items to choose from.  Every dish is artfully crafted and some are even too adorable to consume.  Although the Creamy Egg Yolk Bun is a popular item off the dim sum menu, do not forget to order the Macau Style Roast Pork Belly! This item is only offered on the dinner menu but it is one that MUST BE ORDERED.  Reservations can be made via phone.
