From the Burpple community

Have been craving dim sum for a while now and finally got to have it after work! (Have been working from home the past week so good to be back in office for a bit and eat the good food in town xD)

We ordered about 8 dishes (only 6 are featured here)..

Highly recommended items:

- Coriander prawn dumplings ($4.00++) : these are filled with prawn AND meat! The fillings are super plump and juicy. Must-order!

- Meat dumplings in spicy oil ($6.00++) : the sauce is the bomb... The black vinegar + chilli oil coats the silky dumpling extremely well and it just glides down your throat. Mmm πŸ˜‹

- Crispy Red Bean w Banana ($4.00++) : This is really well made and both ingredients compliments each other well. I think the fact that Yum Cha fry this upon order (it still taste fresh) makes this dish from good to awesome

Still okayish items:

- Xiao Long Bao ($4.80++) : decent xlb, better than DTF one imo because they used rice wine which give it a bit of a sweeter taste but still pale in comparison to the one at 倧上桷

- Scallop Pea-Shoot Dumpling ($4.80++): the filling is nice but the skin doesn't really have much taste. The texture of the skin is also a bit off (too gummy/sticky for my liking)

- Paper Chicken Wings ($5.00++) : although it's in the fried section, the wings were not fried fried so the skin still remain soft. I found it okay but it seems the bf likes it

Give it a miss:

- Sesame BBQ Pork Pastry ($4.50++) : this was the first to come and it is cold and hard. The pastry taste very flat (not fragrant) and the BBQ pork is also not sweet/savory enough.

- Abalone Siew Mai ($5.80++) : we tried to be bougie and ordered this but the abalone is too fishy 🐟 would recommend to save the few $ and go for their normal Siew Mai instead (it's good! Just that the abalone did nothing for this dish)

There is a promotion for 30% dim sum items after 6pm on weekdays so do give this place a try! :)

This fares better compared to pamelo Sago with mango. Crunchy pastry with nice eggy center. πŸ˜‹
πŸ’‘Tips: go for their weekday dim sum buffet ($26.80 Per px).

Skip this Pomelo Sago with mango juice (colorful but taste slightly artificial) and go for the next item! πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

A nice choice for vegetarians. We would prefer more green in the dumpling as it is slightly plain with mushroom and carrot.

Of the whole dim sum baskets we enjoy, this is a winner dim sum. On the top, you will notice the whole scallop. Then bottom layer the addition of pea-shoot into dumpling filling make this not boring and has some crunchy texture. We will need to give a kugel star 🐑🌟!!

Croquette style dumpling and we enjoy this piping hot dim sum with 2 matching flavor combinations.
