Steamed Rice Rolls stuffed with Shredded Jicama, Dried Shrimps and Chinese Mushrooms ($7.80)
This was pretty crispy, and for those who don't know, jicama is actually Mexican Turnip. Interesting flavour because of what's stuffed within the rice rolls.

We were overall actually q disappointed because there were q a bit of misses/ average items despite the high price point, but it could also be that the better items were already sold out in the first seating, leaving us with limited options.

There's certainly a strong mushroom flavour, which mushroom lovers will enjoy, although I wouldn't rave about it.

🌟 Pan-fried Radish Cake ($7.80/ 3 pcs)
This was quite enjoyable, with it being pretty flavourful with a light crisp!

🌟 Smoked Kurobuta Pork Steamed Buns ($8/ 3 pcs)
This was the most memorable dish for me - extremely smokey and flavourful charsiew within that reminds of bakkwa I really loved it. The most unassuming and yet the most impressionable.

Steamed Scallop Dumpling, Steamed Crystal Dumpling, Steamed Squid Ink Seafood Dumpling with Tobiko.
Really aesthetically pleasing and exquisite dimsum here! However because most of the items contain prawns, I can't comment much, but iirc scallop was not bad - altho it's actly pretty pricey for each item.

This was extremely soft and crumbly, with the tart pastry falling apart really easily, and although I recall their custard to be pretty smooth, it wasn't fragrant.

Heard about @peachblossoms and decided to try their dimsum at PARKROYAL, but we were pretty disappointed to find out that most of the dimsum were already out of stock when we went for their second seating (1 pm).

Steamed Iberico Pork Soup Dumplings (XLB) ($8.80/ 3 pcs)
Nothing special about their XLB here, not particularly memorable, other than the small piece of Iberico atop the XLB.

Last but not least, here's another dish we tried at Kai Garden!

🌟 Wok-fried Carrot Cake in XO Sauce ($11.80)
This was in fact our first dish, and it already made an impression! The outsides were slightly crispy, and it was really flavourful ohmy. Each carrot cake was also pretty huge, and we finished it despite all the other food because it was good.

Not to mention the service was really good too! They were very attentive, food came very quickly, and they constantly helped to refill our drinks/ clear our plates when we are done!

Overall Rating: 8.5/10

Deep-fried Sesame Ball with Durian Mousse ($8.80)
Pure bitter durian flesh was used here, which I enjoyed! Made a great "dessert" to end the meal - only qualm was that the sesame ball altho chewy, was a little too hard at some parts. Would prefer it to be crispy.

Steamed Mushroom Dumpling with Truffle Oil ($6.80)
Not too bad, had a really light truffle taste too, but the coriander taste was pretty strong here, so I would defo love this more if coriander was absent 😂.

Pan-fried Pork Dumpling Siew Mai ($8.80)
This was pretty exquisite! So nicely presented, and the prawns were pretty huge. I can't say much about it since I can't eat prawns, but review from my partner was that it's quite fresh.

🌟 Deep-fried yam and pumpkin ($6.80)
Definitely loved how this was so crispy. The pumpkin provided some sweetness to the entire snack as well.
