On any given day in Chinatown's Portsmouth Square, you'll see locals perched on benches, shoveling in dumplings from steaming containers. It’s likely they got them from Good Mong Kok, a tiny bakery nearby. There's no indoor seating here, so follow the system in place: Wait at the entrance until you're beckoned inside by the fast-moving servers at the counter. You’ll find well-executed delicacies like melt-in-your-mouth shrimp har gow, flavorful pork shu mai, and sizable baked and steamed barbecue pork buns. Don't forget dessert: This spot is particularly revered for its custard-filled pineapple buns.
