Xin Cuisine – Lunch

I don’t think many have heard of this restaurant which is in Holiday Inn Atrium but I think the dim sum here is pretty good. For most dishes, they make it innovative (and succeeded) and I like that.

Scallop dumpling with dragonfruit in salted egg yolk sauce – $6.00++/ 3pieces

This is an example of the unusual dim sum I’ve mentioned and I like this!

Prawn and cabbage dumpling in “Zheng Jiang” sauce – $4.50++/3 pieces

Truffle and fresh mushroom Xiao Long Bao – $6.00++/ 3 pieces

This one wasn’t that fantastic compared to the above two.

Xin’s crispy roast pork with mustard dip – $10.00++

This is one of the best roast pork in Singapore! I think it is comparable to my favourite from Imperial Treasure Teochew Cuisine.

Ha Kau

Their version of Ha Kau was one of the better ones in Singapore. They had some fish roe in it. The skin was perfect and so was the texture of the prawn filling.

Siew Mai

On the other hand, the siew mai was not as spectacular in comparison to how the Ha Kau excelled. Still, it is one of the better ones in Singapore.

Chee Cheong Fun

BBQ Pork Bun

Baked Abalone Tart

This was supposed to be one of their specialities and I did like it because the sesame pastry was nice but I didn’t find it outstanding.

Chicken feet

Traditional dumpling

As dumpling festival is around the corner, they offered this for a limited time.

Beef dumpling

Custard Bun

The custard bun here was so-so, or probably a fail if you put it through the test. Some of the filling showed through the skin, and the custard was not evenly cooked – some parts were cooked through (turned hard) and some parts were too liquid. The condition varies from bun to bun and consistency isn’t there. I know custard bun is not easy to make, and taste wise it was alright, but it sure isn’t the best in town.

Peking Duck

Their version is quite good, but nothing outstanding.

Sesame glutinous rice balls with chocolate and liquor filling

This was highly raved and I was looking forward to try this. I must say it is very interesting! The filling was molten and sinfully good. Do give this a try.


Ambiance: 7.5/10

Food: 8/10

Value: 7.5/10

Overall: I do like this restaurant and would recommend it if you want some dim sum away from the crowded places!
