The Sweet Dynasty
G/F., 100 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon
2199 7799

After checking into our hostel, I brought my parents to Sweet Dynasty for a good dinner.

The Stir-Fried Turnip Pudding (HKD$33+/SGD$6+) is good! It’s somewhat like the carrot cake in Singapore but the chunks of turnip are larger and firmer.

My parents had the Fried Rice with Egg (HKD$55+/SGD10+) which has very generous fillings. There are fresh shrimps and scallops—very value for money.

The Scrambled Egg White with Scallops (HKD$55+/SGD10+) is my favourite. After breaking the egg yoke, the runny egg yoke coats the egg white and scallops perfectly. I think they use at least 5 eggs worth of egg white to create this dish.

Since the restaurant specializes in Chinese desserts, we had the famous Tofu Pudding (HKD$88+/SGD$16+) which comes in a tub.

This is the smoothest and nicest tofu bean curd pudding I’ve ever had!

This serves 3 to 4 persons but it proved to be too much for the 3 of us. Each of us had at least 3 full bowls of pudding.

Even though we were already very full, my mom couldn’t resist ordering the Durian Glutinous Rolls (HKD$35+/SGD$6.35+) when the smell wafted over from the table beside us. Not being a durian lover, I have to admit that this is quite good. The fresh durian filling is very generous and has a nice bitter aftertaste—a sure sign of top grade durian.

Service was acceptable enough as the staff were polite and efficient.

The restaurant seems to be rather popular among locals. Even though we were there early, the place was already quite packed. This is a nice place for a Chinese meal at affordable prices.

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
