Lotus Court’s favorite dishes such as Peking duck, Buddha soup, crabs with ginger and onion, steamed pompano, and assorted dimsum. The festival won’t be complete perhaps without the mooncakes served at the buffet station in two variants: Red Bean with Egg Yolk and Lotus Seed Paste mooncake.
The wushu performance by Silver Gray wushu troup entertained the dining guests.

Celebrated in the middle of the autumn season, the Mid-Autumn Festival is the second grandest festival in China after the Chinese New Year. It is usually celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the year. Or early October like this year, they said it is celebrated on October 4. The day is also known as the Moon Festival, and it is that time of the year the moon is at its roundest and brightest.

Harbour City Dimsum House captures the palates of the people of Davao especially those dimsum lovers with the dishes they have. There you can experience classic dimsum and tea house dining experience similar to those found in the Hong Kong landmark destination, Harbour City, which actually serves as an inspiration for the resto’s name and concept.
Tracing its roots from Ding How and Ding Qua Qua restaurants which started dimsum cuisine in Cebu and the concept of all day dimsum dining offering recipes that have made these brand names part of the popular Cebuano cuisine.
They continue to make their way of bringing the unique dimsum dining experience to other cities in the Philippines and make people experience – Everyday Hong Kong.
Harbour City experience highlight is this iconic dimsum trolley or cart wheeled over to customers and diners table for fast and easy selection, just as they would do in dimsum houses in Harbour City in Hong Kong.
Once the carts are beside the table, diners are treated to a sumptuous array of dimsum dishes in bamboo baskets. The original steamed fried rice is their signature dish. They also have a spicy version for those who prefer such.
Best sellers from the wide selection include shaomi, empress rolls, chicken feet, spring rolls, sweet & sour and stuffed pao. Watch the video below we put together what dishes we’ve had during a lunch there with Davao Digital Influencers (DDI) and our media friends.
Harbour City Dimsum House in Davao opened at the ground floor of SM Lanang Premier last July 29, 2017. From Cebu City to Davao City, the Cebu franchise is owned by the Koksengs. The family also owns Dimsum Break which has also branched out in Davao from Cebu at Gaisano Mall of Davao.
They have branches nationwide with four (4) branches in Metro Cebu in Ayala Center, SM City Cebu, SM Seaside City and Marina Mall in Mactan. They also have branches in Cagayan de Oro in Centrio Mall and SM City CDO; as well as in SM City Iloilo and in Dumaguete City.
My boys and I have dined there last August, a month or so since they opened. My fave since has been their vegetable spring rolls. I have a thing for fried spring rolls. They usually served it cut into three parts perhaps to make it more easy to eat and indulge in.
Another personal fave is their garlic pork spare ribs.
Among their desserts, I love their leche flan most.
I have yet to try their coconut creme dessert which is somehow evasive as it often runs out of stock when we are there. Chef Gene likes to order that dessert they said.
The Xie Ping or the Chinese verion of our halo halo using ube or purple colored shaved ice is another popular dessert at Harbour City Dimsum House.
Visit Harbour City Dimsum House in SM Lanang Premier at the ground floor near Happy Lemon, between Serenitea and Sports Central.
