I have wanted to come to this restaurant for the longest time. Over the weekend, we were looking for a place to dine with my family and I suggested dim sum, which everyone agreed.
This restaurant has been at the basement of Forum Galleria Shopping Centre, next to Hilton Hotel for some time.
Here are the items that we had:
- Har Kau: $5.20 – Steamed prawn dumpling. I find the filling not as plump and juicy as I would have preferred.
- Siew Mai: $5.20 – This was alright for me.
- Shrimp Cheong Fun: $6 – The soya sauce was light and not too salty. Not bad.
- Steamed Prawn & Chives Dumpling: $4.80 – This is something like crystal dumpling. The prawns were cut into cubes and mixed with the chopped chives. Not bad.
- Crispy Silver Fish: $8.80 – A staple when I am at a Chinese restaurant. I requested for no chilli because the kids loved this. It was cooked with chopped garlic.
- Steamed Custard Cream Bun with Egg Yolk: $4.50 – I wished the bun was steamed longer, as it went luke warm quickly. The salted egg yolk custard was thick and due to the coolness of the bun, meant it solidify quickly. Taste was ok.
For weekends, the restaurant has a special dim sum menu in addition to their usual dim sum menu. We ordered a few dishes that caught our eye:
- Baked BBQ Bun: $4.50 – Mini char siew Bun. I loved the egg white glaze on the outside of the bun. It imparted a glossy finish to the bun and has a mildly sweet taste.
- Steamed Scallop 'Siew Mai': $5 – This was very good. Highly recommended!
- Crispy Pork Dumpling: $4.50 – Minced meat in a starchy ball which is deep-fried. This is similar to the Teochew dumpling that I have eaten at another Chinese restaurant. I loved the crunch of the dumpling. Good!
- Stir-Fried Shanghai 'Xiang Wu Sun' with 'Xue Cai': $8.80 – This is a tye of leek. But it looked at sliced HK Kailan cut into strips. The vegetable is stir fried with preserved Chinese vegetables. It was my first time eating it, and the leek was crunchy and tasty. Try it!
- Durian Glutinous Dumpling: $4.50 – A little disappointed with the size, as it was smaller than a ping pong ball. It also looked deflated. The skin was thin and sticky (sticks to the fork). Wished there was more filling, to justify the price of $1.50 per durian dumpling.
The dim sum served here are not bad, and I especially like the weekend-only specials, which are good.
I will be back here again to try their ala carte menu soon. The restaurant also has set meals for 2 pax and more.
