I have driven past West Coast Recreation Centre many times. I came by for lunch one afternoon to try their dim sum menu.
Here are the highlights of my meal:
- Scallop and Mango Crispy Wrap: $12. Deep fried. Crispy on the outside and the inside was moist and sweet.
- Imperial Prawn Dumpling – Har Gao: $4.50. Thin skinned and the prawn filling was good.
- Shrimp Siew Mai with Crab roe: $4.50. This was ok.
- Shrimp & Vegetable Crystal Dumpling: $4.20. Alright only.
- Yong Tau Foo: $4.20. Rare to have yong tau foo for dim sum. This was tau pok with minced pork fillings. Its steamed with a nice starchy sauce tats mild spicy.
- Jade Dumpling with Scallops: $4.50. Green colored dumpling with mini scallop.
- Crab Meat Cheong Fun: $4.80. Crabmeat Chee Cheong Fun. Spotted this on the menu and I had to order it to try. A first for me. Freshly made. The soya sauce is made by the chef on premise and it taste just like how a good Cantonese restaurant should serve it as. It's nice.
- Sliced Grouper Fish Congee: $5. This was a small bowl of congee. What I like about this is that the fish meat in this were firm. Its topped with youtiao that were cut thinly and deep fried. Its nice.
- La La (Gan Heong style): $12. Clams stir fried with dried shrimp, egg, sambal and cut chili padi. $12. I asked for little chili and I was perspiring at the end of the meal.
This is a hidden find and the dim sum is not bad. Now I need not travel all the way to town to enjoy dim sum, when it can be had just minutes away in the west.
