Century Egg Congee – $7.50++
The congee was thick and smooth, just the way I like it to be.
Baked Bun with Butter – $5.80++
I don’t think I have tried Po Lo Bao before and this was my first time. The butter was provided seperately and you can have a whole chunk of it. I’m not sure how this compares to other Po Lo Baos but I liked this.
Steamed “Ha Kau” – $6.00++
The Ha Kau here was good. the filling was crunchy and the skin stayed in tact.
Dinosaur warrior – $6.00++
I ordered this because it looked really cute. The fillings for this was like chicken with dried shrimp and it was not bad. The pastries was slightly chewy.
Sparrow – $6.00++
Again, I ordered this because it was cute. This was shrimp paste with quail egg. Quite a decent one if you like prawns.
Dolly Fish – $6.00++
The filling for this reminded me of chicken pie. It was quite creamy inside, like seafood chowder. The pastry was brittle and powdery. Among the 3 cute dim sum items this was my least favourite.
Steamed Custard Bun – $5.00++
They had 4 buns in this portion. The custard was of perfect consistency and taste and the bun itself was above satisfactory. Overall the custard bun here is one of the better ones around! If you like custard buns you can add this to your ‘to try’ list.
Mini Egg Tarts – $5.80++
I didn’t quite like the pastry of this one so I do not recommend this.
Overall the food here was pretty decent, definitely better than the neighbouring Crystal Jade. I suppose the above amount can comfortably feed 3 people, as the 2 of us struggled to finish everything. One thing to note however is that at 3pm sharp they will start chasing everyone out by dimming the lights, removing your plates and if all fails, they’ll tell you. So if you want to have dim sum here, do start early.
Overall: not a bad dim sum place, which isn’t too well known yet.
