Best liushabaos in Singapore
This place has the best liushaobaos (custard buns) ever. I'm not even kidding. Mouth Restaurant's buns are baked till crispy. I love the sweet and crispy skin of the bun. Once I bit into the bun, the thick and hot custard flowed out, and it was simply heavenly. At 3 for $5.80, this is definitely the value-for-money.
Other than the custard buns, I love the dimsum that the restaurant serves. The one that left the largest impression on me was the Prawn and Mango Roll. The outer layer of the roll was crispy, whereas the inside was stuffed with prawns and mango that were juicy and succulent.
The ambience of the restaurant is really good, and the service is impeccable. The service staff were all very prompt and attentive at attending to us. Thumbs up for their service. The price range is really worth it considering the high quality of the food here, so I'll highly recommend others to give this place a try.
Definite must-try for liushabao lovers!
On my quest to find the best liu sha bao (egg custard lava bun) in Singapore, I stumbled upon Mouth Restaurant. Intrigued by its unique name, I knew I had to visit the restaurant, if not just for their amazing liushabao.
The legendary liushabao really does live up to its name, with a delicious baked crust akin to that of the Hong Kong Polo Bun and its glorious yellow filling of oozing egg custard goodness. I really like that it is different from usual liushabaos, which are typically steamed, whilst this one offers a brand new experience with a thin crunchy exterior and a warm flowing centre. Avid Instagrammers beware, the liushabao is so thin that the baked crust starts falling apart as you attempt to capture the oozing egg custard, so it is best if you just focus on eating it rather than trying to capture that perfect Instagram photo moment. But you can always take a photo of their wall of "long"s, i.e. what they use to steam buns.
Also, try not to go there on your first date, because there is no glamorous way to eat that liushubao! No matter how careful you are, the custard spills from all sides as you bite into it.
However, this is after all a restaurant, and they charge you for the wet towels and peanuts, which amounts to a fair bit at the end. It seems rather absurd to fork out this much for just my liushabao, so next time I might go there for a meal instead.
Delicious dim sum
This might seem a little unusual for a 19 year-old girl, but I’m a huge fan of dim sum. Chinese cuisine is arguably my favourite (yes, more so than Japanese or Korean) and I think I’ve subconsciously made it my mission to try out the best dim sum places in Singapore.
My dad first brought me to Mouth Restaurant years ago at Chinatown Point, before its renovation. We went for dim sum and I remember so clearly that it was the best dim sum I’d ever tasted. The prawn dishes were so good, because the prawns are incredibly juicy and fresh! Even the humble char siew pao and egg tarts were delicious!
Not too long ago, I went back for some dim sum, and I must say that nothing has changed in terms of quality. Mouth Restaurant is one of the better Chinese restaurants around, yet it’s seriously so underrated. It definitely deserves more recognition for its amazing dim sum.
