HYPEBAE Brunch: This Sailor Moon Dim Sum Is Any Anime-Lovers' Dream

Fulfilling our dream of becoming Sailor Soliders.

By //Food

We previously got a look at Hong Kong eatery Dim Sum Icon‘s new menu featuring the beloved Sailor Moon character and her friends and we instantly knew that we needed to try it out. The restaurant is known for uniquely decorated dishes, such as Spongebob Squarepants and Garfield, as well as other beloved cartoon characters. This time around, Dim Sum Icon is serving up everything from steamed dumplings in the colors of the rainbow, to other signature dishes emblazoned with characters from the Japanese anime series. As a special treat, the restaurant is also giving away collectible merch in the form of fans and coasters for customers to take home with them.

Take a look at our latest HYPEBAE Brunch review below, and make sure to visit this Instagram-friendly restaurant, if you are passing by Hong Kong before October 12.

THIS PLACE IS PERFECT FOR: Dim sum and anime lovers, alike. Ideal for those looking for a cute Instagram opportunity, and those looking to fulfill their childhood dream of becoming a Sailor Soldier.

WHAT YOU SHOULD ORDER: Literally everything. Each individual dish comes with a Sailor Moon-inspired graphic or shape, like the rose-shaped buns inspired by Tuxedo Mask, or the egg yolk buns with Luna and Artemis on. Each item takes on classic dim sum foods, like steamed dumplings and buns, but with a magical and colorful twist. Our favorite dish was the multi-colored steamed shrimp dumplings, in which each hue had a different flavor.

OUR FAVORITE DRINK: The menu offered a selection of drinks, with a shaved ice-flavor based on Sailor Soldiers. We tried out three of the flavors: blueberry, peach and mango, and out of our selection, mango definitely took the cake. This iced drink was perfect alongside the steaming hot meal, especially on a warm Hong Kong day.
