Best carrot cake in a dim sum restarant
Mention dim sum in Orchard road, and in ION specifically, chances are you'll be told to go to Imperial Treasure or Taste Paradise.
Canton-I is actually pretty underrated because they have an awesome selection of dim sum, and other types of Hong Kong cuisine like congee and roasted duck. Also when you enter the restaurant, rows of baked pastries welcome you! The char siew sou is soft, flaky and yummy with a generous amount of char siew inside. Then there's the liu sha bao too. They do a pretty good job with it but as with liu sha baos from other places, it's only as good as when it's eaten hot.
But anyway, the MUST order is the XO carrot cake. Simply because carrot cake in other dim sum restaurants are often overlooked, or because it's not that difficult to deep fry something and make it palatable. This pan-fried dish though.. slightly crisp carrot cake served with spring onions, tau gey and lap cheong bites.. and with that XO sauce. I don't need to say more. Go try it for yourself!
