The Harbour City Group: Celebrating 50 Years of Great Dimsum

Whether it’s the first ever Ding How on Colon Street in 1969, the institutional Ding Qua Qua on Mango Avenue for Generation X and Y, or Harbour City and Dimsum Break when the big malls opened during the turn of the millennium, there is a Harbour City Group brand that evokes fond memories for every generation.

This year marks the group’s golden anniversary, 50 years since they pioneered and introduced dimsum cuisine in Cebu. Much like how this beloved Cebu dimsum culture and dining has been passed on from one generation diners to the next, The Harbour City Group has been passed by from one generation on to the third generation.

The Harbour City Group is known for its authentic and all- day dimsum dining experience, serving appetizing Chinese cuisine that has become a homegrown favorite and is now shared across the nation.

In celebration of their milestone anniversary, the Harbour City Group will be holding a series of events to pay tribute to their heritage, give thanks to generations of Cebuanos who have patronized their dishes, and to move full steam ahead towards the future.

It launched an Interactive 50th Year Exhibit which traces the group’s history from its humble beginnings in 1969 to its growth and development in the 21st century.

It features colorful and picturesque backdrops and life- sized models of its famous dishes and icons to provide guests with an immersive experience.

Here is the schedule of the Interactive Exhibit:

All you need to do is take a photo with the display, use the hashtag #HarbourCityAt50, post on Facebook or Instagram, and show the uploaded post to the store where the mall display is to get a free lotus rice.
