Continued from Part 1
Steamed Shanghai pork dumpling. Be careful when you put one of those in your mouth because the piping hot soup in the dumpling can scald your mouth. But trust me, the scalding is all worth while. This little devil is deliciously addictive! ($4.20)
Deep fried fish skin with salt and pepper. I'm a big fan of fried fish skin this dish is too salty for me. I didn't like it at all. ($9.80)
Deep fried silver bait with anchovies tossed in spicy salt. We were told that this is a special dish (ie. they don't have it all the time) and decided to order it to try. Taste almost like an over priced silver fish. Really, there isn't alot for the price we had to pay. The taste wasn't exceptional either. Totally not worth it. ($9.80).
Braised chicken feet with abalone sauce. We were recommended this dish by the waitress. When it was served at our table, most of us had a shock. It looks really scary. The taste wasn't extraordinary either. It was an interesting experience though. Not something I would order again. ($9.80)
Century egg with lime sherbet. This dish was a positive surprise. Didn't know century eggs can taste this good. The sour tinge in the lime added a bit of 'live' into the taste while the coldness in sherbet gives it a good twist. So for all those who thinks that century eggs can only be found in congee...you have got to try this! ($8.80)
It was so good, we decided to order again. This time, it was another presentation. The century eggs were served in porcelain spoons instead of metal spoon like the earlier dish. ($8.80)
Chilled asparagus served with truffle-infused mustard vinaigrette. The sauce made the entire dish taste heavenly. Truffles are expensive for a reason and we know why when you taste this dish. I could just clean out the entire plate all by myself. ($9.80).
Mango sago with coconut ice cream. Ended the meal with a cold dessert. Taste ok but I still prefer the mango ice in Hong Kong. ($6.80)
In total, our group of 7 spent $220.69 which comes up to about $32 per person. It takes a long time for them to serve up the dishes though. The strategy is to order the moment you sit down. Although our timeslot is from 12.30pm to 2pm, the bill comes at 1.45pm.
