Actually, we were intending to go to another place for breakfast but got tempted by the “half price dim sum” advertisement we saw at the MTR station. All the items below only cost HKD$8.80+ (SGD$1.60+) each and our total bill was HKD$133 (SGD$24.10). This is so cheap and value for money!
The Crab Siew Mai had thin skin and a lot of fresh crabmeat in it.
Char Siew Bao tasted alright and there’s nothing special.
The Prawn Dumplings had very generous fillings.We had the Steamed Ribs with Yams after seeing it on many people’s tables. I only ate the yams which were so soft that it just melted in the mouth.
We ordered the Bamboo Rolls in Oyster Sauce without knowing what it was. It turned out to be fresh bamboo shoots wrapped in beancurd skin.My favourite is the Pan Fried Yam Cake. This is by far the BEST yam cake I’ve ever eaten. There’s so much yam in it that I can’t taste the flour at all.
The Pan Fried Carrot Cake was good too. It’s very soft and not too oily.
The Shredded Carrot Rolls had light and flaky pastry.
For something sweet to end the meal, we had the Fried Sesame Balls.
There’s black sesame paste in it which was not too sweet.
Despite the obscure location, the place was fully packed. That's probably because of the cheap prices or the good quality of the food or both.
This is also an award winning restaurant and has been featured in many magazines and newspapers.
Personally, I prefer the dim sum at this place to Shamrock Seafood Restaurant. I'm glad that we chanced upon this hidden gem and would really recommend this place to anyone going to Hong Kong!
