Michelin starred dim sum!

The dim sum here is on another level, I havent got a chance to try their main store at hong kong due to the packed queue but at least I tried their singapore franchise! The bolo char siew is very special and yummy but needs to be shared, who doesnt share dim sum anyway? Must tries are their siew mai and carrot cake!

Good Place for Cantonese Dim Sum

We were there on a Friday night with a group of 6, so we ordered almost every item on their menu.  All the dishes were good, and out of their 4 'heavenly king' signature dishes, my favourites are the Ma Lai Gao (Steamed Egg Cake) and the baked bun with BBQ pork (Char Siew Pao).

The BBQ pork bun had a very crispy outer crust and fragrance was just a bit too tempting.  When you bite it, you can hear your own teeth crushing the crust.  

The egg cake was porous, like a sponge that you can press it and it will bounce back.  

This is the best place for authentic Cantonese dim sum in Singapore.

Rooting for the porridge!

BBQ pork buns were crispy, sweet and soft all at the same time, love it! The har gow were juicy and tasty, likewise for the carrot cake and siew mai. Nothing to complain about! However, while others are raving about the Big Four Heavenly King, my personal favourite would be the century egg porridge! Porridge was flavourful and served warm, with morsels of century eggs for easier consumption. No need to "cut" the eggs with the spoon. Portion was just right too, not too big to be full!

Long queue, worth the visit for the char siew pao

Long queue, waited for 45 minutes before we got a seat but serving was fast.
