Available Mondays to Fridays at $26++ per person and weekends (as well as PH) at $33++ per person with 3 seatings daily, @majesticbayrestaurantsg All You Can Eat Dim Sum Buffet was truly bang for your buck.

Though there are hits and misses, the spread was overall pretty satisfying, especially at the price point. The unanimous favourites being from the one-time-order default dishes such as the Crispy Pumpkin with Salted Eggs which was executed perfectly in both texture and taste. The batter was not too thick and the sweetness of the vegetable pairing well with the savoury elements - salted egg and floss. The Coffee Sauce Pork Belly Ribs coming in a close second with the dish’s aromatic sweet glaze. The Cantonese Roast Duck was tender and of a sizable portion. And for seafood lovers, the Herbal Poached Sea Prawns was rather lip-smacking with an earthy sweet-tasting broth.

However, get your money’s worth by stuffing yourself silly with their classic dim sum offerings. Ranging from crowd-pleasing Prawn Dumplings to Steamed Xiao Long Bao, Steamed Vegetable Dumplings, Pan-seared Radish Cake, Crispy Beancurd Skin Rolls, to tantalizing Poached Spicy Wantons and their weekend-only Crispy Sesame Balls. Or load up on carbs with options like Wok-fried Beef Hor Fun and Yang Zhou Fried Rice. Note that food wastage is chargeable, so order only what you can stomach!

Offering fresh seafood and mouthwatering zichar dishes filled with wok hei, order their Three Spices Chicken($18), Prawn Paste Chicken ($18), Guiness Pork Rib ($18) and Egg with "Chype Poh" ($8). Their Claypot Beancurd ($15) had Burppler Jenna Ding touting it as " the best ‘hotplate’ tofu from all my zichar experiences. The chef was being really generous with the use fresh prawns, minced meat and sliced mushroom in this dish. Portions of Japanese egg tofu were lightly fried till golden before being soaked in the slightly spicy-savory gravy together with the other ingredients. Hidden below is a layer of egg-bed, do remember to stir when it’s being served!"

The braised pork leg was very tender, and it went well wok-fried with the vermicelli. Overall a delicious dish and worth it with the Beyond 1-for-1 deal.

We came on a Sunday afternoon and it was pretty busy! Unfortunately for Burpple Beyond users, only walk-ins are accepted - I would recommend calling before you go over just to check on the availability of seats - I’ve previously attempted walking in twice on weekend lunchtimes and the cafe was fully booked on both times. The third time I was a little smarter and called in before heading over. :P

⭐️ 4.5/5 ⭐️
🍴This cosy restaurant serves a wide array of authentic Northern Jiangsu cuisine and we highly enjoyed all their recommended dishes. The 𝐠𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐝 𝐩𝐨𝐭 𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐜𝐤𝐞𝐧 (地锅鸡) was tender chicken meat braised in a flavourful sauce and we especially liked the soft potatoes that soaked up the sauce, and the unique homemade dumpling that had a chewy texture while being crispy at the edges (that had been in contact with the claypot). It’s a tough fight between both lala dishes with the 𝐬𝐢𝐠𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐞 𝐥𝐚𝐥𝐚 (捞汁啦啦) being on the sweet side with a nice kick (from wasabi!) while the 𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐫 𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐝 𝐥𝐚𝐥𝐚 (花甲鸡) had a spicy mala kick definitely suiting the spicy lovers, and a mix of juicy clams, tender chicken, and crunchy bamboo shoots. Would also recommend the 𝐛𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐝 𝐬𝐨𝐮𝐩 (大煮干丝) that was highly comforting and a refreshing balance to the richer dishes; The creamy broth was made from day-long simmering of chicken & pork bones. Instead of noodles, it came with shredded beancurd that had a great QQ texture. Their unique 𝐩𝐨𝐩𝐢𝐚𝐡 (彭城小份) is also worth a try, with the thin popiah skin being a great complement to thin crispy noodles, fresh cucumber, sour preserved veges, and salty salted egg and black bean sauce. Their other popular dish is the 𝐜𝐥𝐚𝐲𝐩𝐨𝐭 𝐛𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐤 (砂锅红烧肉) that while delicious, we found some leaner meat to be a bit on the tougher side. While Chinese cuisine tends to be stronger in flavour, Peng Cheng Xiao Chu has adapted to local taste preferences and we were glad to find all the food to be not overly oily or salty as some might expect.
⚠️ Already relatively affordable, they are now on #burpplebeyond offering 1-1 main dishes ☺️

One of the crunchiest sio bak I've ever had and goes so well with beer. Do yourself a favour and order this when you are there, you wont regret it

Known for their catchy ad jingle (cue 家香家香家香、面面面), this casual eatery in Marina Square serves up springy noodles served Sarawak style, with minced meat, char siew and fried wantons. Their Gold Jia Xiang Mee ($9.90) coupled with their signature chilli paste, QQ noodles and generous servings of prawns will have you dreaming about it during lunch for days on end!
