Dim sum haven!
My dad and I came here recently to enjoy their dim sum after hearing good reviews about it, especially towards their liu sha pao (salted egg yolk custard bun), I was indeed impressed with the standard and quality of their dimsum delights, which were up to par with other famous chinese dim sum restaurants.
Though the dishes don't come cheap, it is a delight for the taste buds. The custard pao was hot and flowy in the middle, and wasn't too "jerlat". I could pop one after another into my mouth!
Their porridge came in a rather small serving but did not disappoint too. It came nicely thick and creamy, and did not taste heavily of MSG, which the health conscious in me is screaming about.
Their dimsum is highly raved about whether in the newspapers mags or in the blogosphere, before going ,do make reservations. Try to make them a week in advance, 'cause that's how popular they are.
Disappointed with famous peking duck
My family went there for a birthday dinner for my mum. We had a groupon voucher for the peking duck and were excited to try but sad to say it was a real disappointment for all of us. The number of pieces of duck skin was very little even though we were paying for the whole portion; it looked really pathetic when laid out on a big plate. It also didn’t taste as crispy or crunchy as other peking ducks that I have tasted before this. The pancake that was given to wrap the duck also tasted weird and somehow uncooked. For an additional 10 dollars we got to have a second serving of peking duck. We chose to have it fried with Spring Onions and Ginger which turned out really oily and for some reasons had too much bone and very little meat. There are other ways that you can choose to prepare the duck meat and my advice is don’t choose to fry it because it gets really very oily. We also wanted xiao long bao but unfortunately they didn’t serve dim sum for dinner.
