We had a dim sum lunch at Wo Peng recently, thanks to a Groupon deal of 50% off cash voucher. I bought $30 of it, which means I have a $60 worth of cash vouchers to use at Wo Peng. Yipee !!Read MoreHide
Wo Peng is located at the 3rd level of Furama Hotel, which to the unfamiliar, needs a bit getting used to. Furama is an old building, and the signage is not that helpful. Anyway, you need to exit the reception by the side, and can use the escalator to go to level 3, and you can see Wo Peng.
I ordered pretty conventional fare :
siew mai: 4 pcs, prawn on top, taste fresh, sweet
har kau : 3 pcs, very good, with juicy prawns, smooth non sticky skin
steam carrot cake : 1 large block, normal fare
fried carrot cake : 3 pcs, like the crystal jade fried carrot cake
char siew pao : 3 pcs, very canto pao, with fluffy non sticky dough
custard pao : 3 pcs, very generous with filling, but too watery for my liking
egg tart : 3 pcs, very flaky, we like
chicken feet : normal fare
cheong fun : 3 long strips, char siew is nice, but the skin is a let down
century egg porridge : generous serving, but ok taste only
The seating is comfortable, but it can get noisy after a while. You may note that they’ve got 2 dining time slots, 11am-1pm, and 1pm-2.30pm. So you’ll be nicely asked to vacate your table by 1pm. The total bill for everything plus tea, peanuts, etc comes up $63 odd, so with the groupon deal, I effectively spent
$33. For 3 people dining, we had a comfortable meal and felt full enough. Lucky me for groupon.
I wouldn’t say that the dim sum taste and flavours are great, and to me are conventional standards only. You can find better tasting fare
elsewhere. There seems to be a sense of disorganization
that Sunday afternoon, and many tables were left waiting for a pretty long time to get their dishes served, ours inclusive.
But it’s a family oriented place and for old loyals to Wo Peng, it still works for them.
I spent $21 per person.
- I also recommend this place for:
- Brunch, Lunch, Large Groups/Gathering, Children/Family, Weddings, Vibrant/Noisy
