By night it’s Cantonese a la carte but by day it’s yum cha carts ahoy at this Chinese restaurant hidden at the top of Piccadilly Tower. Palace churns out all the classics, bustled about by enthusiastic cart pushers who’ll happily lift every bamboo steamer for you to inspect its contents. Make room for har gow prawn dumplings, siu mai pork dumplings and gao choy gow garlic chive and prawn dumplings as well as the ham soi gok combination dumplings, deep-fried footballs filled with minced pork and mushroom. Keep an eye out for roving specials like the mini pumpkin dessert dumplings - glutinous rice dough stuffed with custard and deep-fried until stickily crisp and chewy.
