Michelin starred chef Mak Kwai Pui’s dim sum restaurant’s first overseas outlet (outside of Hong Kong) can accommodate 100 sit-down diners. Queues are long, but there is an SMS waiting system in place, and a takeaway counter for those who just want a char siew bao to go.

healthy affordable food

There are some food i dont like, and some I downright love. My current favorite is the rice, beef and egg in a tin. It's definitely overhyped, but it's HEALTHY and AFFORDABLE. As a student, this is a Godsend when I dont feel that well and dont want to cook. Dont feel well+ McD/KFC = recipe for disaster orz

Given the long queue of Tim Ho Wan, I will never go and try out the food there. However, since I was hanging around Plaza Singapura at nine in the morning, and there is no queue at this place, so I thought that I might as well check it out. So if you want to avoid the queue, go there before ten in the morning.

The staff at the reception is friendly while the others are quite okay in terms of service. The place is pretty cramped, plus the cantonese music blaring in the background, the Hong Kong feel is really strong.

As for the dim sum, they are not bad, but are nowhere comparable to the ones I have in my favourite restaurants—take note that the price is comparable though. The Bo Lo Bun is decent in taste, the sauce used for the char siew tends to be on the sweet side. But there is nothing exceptional about it. The same goes for the Steamed Cake that has a very silky, fluffy texture but the taste is hardly noteworthy. There is just slight sweetness with hints of egg taste. The dim sum with wasabi looks and tastes interesting, but I can hardly detect any wasabi or horseradish in it. The porridge is really a huge meh. It is so bland and has that cooked-in-the-pot-for-too-long taste, like one of those horrible porridges I had in Imperial Treasures and Jade Restaurant.
I don't mind having the Bo Lo Buns and Steamed Cake again, but queuing for them is put of question. And I will not specially go down for them either.

First time here. The food is nothing like the Hong Kong outlet. We ordered several dishes and the only that were acceptable were the malay cake and carrot cake. The taste is just very poor and 'coarse' e.g. tasteless porridge, tough char siew in the chee cheong fun..None of the delicate alchemy of flavours that is to be expected of good dim sum..Maybe their quality has dropped over time. We swore never to return. Crystal Jade upstairs is so much better.
