If Superman’s weakness is kryptonite, my weakness is Hong Kong dim sum. Chinese restaurants abound in Tokyo, but authentic Cantonese cuisine is frustratingly rare. My quest to find the best Cantonese restaurant in Tokyo came to a delightful end when I visited Le Parc in Ebisu.
The name Le Parc is probably the last thing that comes to mind when you think of dim sum, but they could’ve called it Smacky McFood and the people would still come in droves because the food is THAT good.
We tried a basket assortment of steamed goodies, hot and sour soup noodles, fried shrimp rolls (the highlight of the meal for me) and steamed barbecue pork buns, all of which really hit the spot. I wish I could come here more often!
The chefs are all from Hong Kong, so you know it’s the real deal. The decor is more French than Chinese, but you won’t be noticing much of it while you’re scarfing down all that tasty grub. Yum!
“Le Parc is one of those rare restaurants where everything you order is good. When your tummy craves some hot, delicious dim sum, make a beeline for Ebisu – you won’t regret it. To enjoy the same great food at lower prices, stop by in the afternoon and go for the value lunch sets priced around 1,000 Yen.”
