Barack and Michelle, Rihanna and Drake, Bonnie & Clyde, The Hague and Chinatown: All things that somehow just work together. This is our first post about the big Chinatown section in the Hague.
Arguably the best restaurant section: Full Moon city. Full Moon City literally contains multiple restaurants with different concepts. While Full moon Express tends to focus on dishes from for example Japan and China, Full Moon: Dim Sum & Hot Pot tends to focus more on traditional Western Chinese dishes and is especially known for their Dim Sum. Now for those of you who don’t know but always just pretend to know…
Dim sum is a style of of Chinese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food usually served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Dim sum is also well known for the unique way it is sometimes served in some restaurants, where fully cooked and ready-to-serve dim sum dishes would be pushed around on steam carts by servers who go around the restaurant offering the dishes to customers and marking orders on a card on each customer’s table. (I know, right)
Our Ha Kua Dim Sum
Menu: The restaurant menu covers has different contains a very wide variety of Dim Sim mixes such as the dumplings, Chong Fang (rolled rice noodles), and Cha Siu (rolled beef buns) .The Dim Sum was at a very reasonable price. We started with the shrimp spring rolls and smaller Dim Sum portions. Fresssshhly warm and crispy from the oil. Then we got a side dish “wontong soup ‘ both very tasty. And the best was the main course, Fried Rice with prawns the crispy fried fish in a honey and sesame seeds sauce and Won Ton noodles .You only pay once for the Chinese tea but it gets re-filled for free anytime you want. Dishes start around 14euros. This might be tight on a student budget but it’s definitely a try worth when the paycheck comes in. The different ‘menus’ also help make the choosing easier.
Vibe/personnel: Great personell. The food arrived fast and on time. The interior is much bigger than you might think and the staff wll run towards you to welcome you to a spot.
Location: Perfect! Right down in the centre of Chinatown. (It rhymes too) Just like any other restaurant it can get quite busy during dinner hours so keep that in mind.
