Delightful Dim Sum

Delightful Dim Sum

Nothing can be as delightful as these bite-sized pleasures.

Randomly got this from the handmade dim sum stall at a coffee shop in Potong Pasir. Quite impressed with how this one turned out to be; light, fluffy bun that isn’t too thick while the Char Siew comes chunky within — drenched in that mostly sweet, yet savoury sauce for a deep flavour. Very delicious!

Unlike the Char Siew from the Roast Meat Platter which was a tad disappointing, the Steamed B.B.Q. Bun was actually pretty good — not only was the bun pretty fluffy, the Char Siew filling within comes in chunk bits that is smothered in a thick and sweet sauce that's laced with honey; pretty good I would say.

Yet another offering that is unique to Lian Bang Fu Zhou Home-made Pau is the Golden Wo Zai Pau — the bun is an interesting fusion of steamed egg cake and char siew bun with the steamed egg cake encased within a pau bun lined with char siew filling. The result was an interesting combination of sweet and savoury; something out of the usual char siew bun for the sweetness is provided by the steamed egg cake.

The Char Siew Bun itself was decent; more savoury than sweet being meaty with tiny chunks of meat within. The bun might be a little on the thick side, but does carry quite a bit of fluff — not the best but decent enough.

Went to Bukit Batok after seeing photos of the special paus available at Lian Bang Fu Zhou Home-Made Pau, which includes this Royal Chicken Bao that comes with char siew, mushroom, onions smothered in a lightly savory yet thick sauce within, stacked atop a layer of glutinous rice. Every bite comes with a light hint of sweetness from the char siew amidst the savouriness from the sauce, while the bun despite being a little on the thicker side is also pretty fluffy. The entire combination isn't quite like the usual Lo Mai Gai offering despite sounding similar, largely due to how saucy the entire filling is but it's certainly not the conventional pau one would expect from a dim sum shop.

My friends found this to be rather decent but it felt a tad disappointing to me. Could have been expecting a little too much for its $1.30 price tag, but it comes with a miserable portion of prawn (I didn't get any) which was already a big no-no for me. While the soy sauce did give it that savoury flavour that I yearn for, I felt that the Chee Cheong Fun itself felt like it was missing that ricey flavour — the entire item felt like it was just so lacking in terms of dimension of flavours. Probably would work well for those who are less picky though.

Slightly thick skin aside, the Prawn Dumplings are not too bad; the prawns were sizable and comes reasonably fresh for a good bite.

Could probably be my favourite out of the items we tried here. While it's rather oily, the crispy roll is pretty light and crisp and encased with mushy banana and red bean paste within that provides for its sweet yet earthy flavour.

Not to be mistaken as Salted Egg Custard Lava Bun, the Custard Bun comes with corn custard encased within for that subtly sweet flavour. Buns were also pretty fluffy here; not too bad.

If anything, I did feel that the Pau here seem to fare better than most of the Dim Sum items. The Coffee Bun exudes that roasty coffee aroma on first bite with the red bean paste base providing a hint of sweetness thereafter. The bun itself is also rather fluffy as well.

This would probably appeal to those who love their grab-and-go coffeeshop Carrot Cake — the sort of carrot cake that is a little dense as compared to the ones served at Chinese/Dim Sum restaurants and with firm edges less the lupcheong and fibrous insides.

Pretty decent though nothing too outstanding about this. The dim sum here felt rather commercially made and generic here; though meaty, the Siew Mai gave a firmer bite than the usual ones we get from Chinese restaurants or casual dining concepts that make their own Dim Sum.

Wanted to grab these to go but ended up eating them on the spot because the aircon's pretty good and it's scorching hot outside 😂.

These are actually pretty well made; beneath that glossy, glistening pastry which was flaky and buttery packs a good amount of sweet char siew filling with fine pieces of saucy meat. One is definitely not enough!
