Jumbo Kingdom Floating Restaurant. Aberdeen, Hong Kong.
After touring Stanley and Aberdeen, I grabbed a late lunch at the
Jumbo Kingdom Floating Restaurant.
Stairs leading to the main dining room.
The interior was impressive.
Main dining room.
There weren’t any tables for one, so I had a huge table for four to myself.
Dim sum and hot tea.
I was famished, so I ordered three items from the dim sum menu.
Ham & cheese puff pastries.
The ham & cheese puff pastries were almost too rich, between the buttery pastry and the cheese filling.
The pork dumplings were disappointing. The sauce was too heavy on the vinegar and the actual dumpling wrapper was more like a bun wrapper than a dumpling one.
The shrimp dumplings were my favorite. The wrapper was thin and soft. The shrimp filling was seasoned well.
Overall, this restaurant had a lovely ambiance, but the food wasn’t worth the prices they charged. If you go, you should go with a group so you can get your money’s worth.

View from Murray House balcony.
I took this photo from
Murray House, a restored colonial building that now houses pricey restaurants & shops. Since there were no Cantonese restaurants there, I just took photos and ate lunch in Aberdeen later that day.
