Remember the famous movie from Stephen Chow : The God of Cookery that took scene at this magnificent Jumbo Kingdom. One of the iconic building in Hong Kong. Jumbo floating restaurant is located at Sham Wan Pier.
How to go to Jumbo Floating Restaurant : Go to MRT Central Station. Exit A, then take bus 70 from the Exchange Square Bus Terminus.
As for us, we just use cab. Easy. Hahahaha! So the cab drop us directly in front of the pier.
There’s a free shuttle boat to the Jumbo Kingdom. But make sure you ask or you see properly. There’s another boat around that collects money. Its operated by some private boatman or something like that and they are quite rude. Just use the complimentary boat will do!
So finally Jumbo!
There are a few restaurant there. Choose whichever you like. We went for breakfast dim sum so 3rd floor if not mistaken.
The hall is very big. Not too many people at this hour but reservation is quite full. Luckily the place is big enough so there are still rooms for non reservation customers.
Not much choices to choose from to be honest. Well, i think the main point is to experience eating at the floating restaurant.
Clockwise : Shanghai Soup Dumplings, Baked Barbeque Pork Bun, Drunken chicken with yellow wine, baked shrimp and smoked duck meat puff, roasted pork neck, Jumbo shrimp dumplings.
We were glad we din’t order much because the food is just mediocre.
But what caught our attention is the costume thing in front of the restaurant hall. Price is reasonable and since we never tried dynasty costume, why not?
Oh I’m a princess from whatever dynasty. *kekeke* bow!
We had fun there and everyone is like looking at us posing and taking photos non stop. What I like about the guy serving us is, he help us took lotsa photos using our own camera and phone. Oh.. he even allow keren to put on some kids’ costume!
Do you like keren in a female costume or the male one? So cute right!!
Niang Niang~ why you torture me…. #cry #slave
But once I take picture with the restaurant background, I look like a waitress instead. hahaha!
We had so much fun there before we call it a day for the Jumbo visit. Wanted to take some nice photos but the whole floating restaurant is under renovation so it doesn’t look nice at all.
The fortune ball?
And a lot of rich people parking their yacht alongside.
Bye Bye Jumbo. Your food is a no no but at least you gave us lotsa fun!
We randomly took a bus to town.. Such a long journey before we reach Central… Next up will show you the Must Eat in Central! Stay tuneeeeee!
