The mental monster (aka brother) decided to be nice and went to the club( Singapore Swimming Club) to take away lunch for my family 🙂
So he decided to try out the Chinese restaurant at our club (following on the dim sum theme) he bought back.
We were all quite ravenous by the time he got back, so just bear with the presentation of the food – although it does kinda overall taste like what it looks like Zzzz …
So he also ordered things off the main menu as well.
and their speciality, and I think we can all unanimously agree this is the best dish out of all the take aways
Verdict: 4/4 of us will not return for dim sum .. the usual dishes that we order (har gao, char siew sau .. ) was just … mediocre according to our fussy taste buds – we have been too spoilt for choice .. But I would say the xiao long pau is quite redeeming of the whole lot of dishes.
The most ‘surprising’ dish I would say was the XO-carrot cake. It ended up tasting like the carrot cake sold in hawker centres instead of what it should be like.
As for the chicken, it’s not tough (I am more of a chicken breast meat person), and quite tender in fact – I think this was the best dish that was done well out of the whole takeaway. The hor fun was disappointing only because it didn’t have the wok fried taste to it? .. like the burnt otherwise colloquially termed ‘chao ta’ taste. The ‘wok hei’ (fire) was probably not big enough to get such an effect.
Just thought I try something different in pasting the address
