Review (2)
Mongkok Kitchen serves Chinese cuisine and the area is fully air-conditioned located near to Mr. Eric Chua's office, so we decided to have our dinner sponsored by team manager after having an informal meeting on Riway's rebates bonus, pairing bonus and matching bonus last afternoon.This place is great because I liked the (very sweet) three layer tea. It was a satisfying meal for all of us last evening because food and service is very good here not very expensive too.Conclusion: Great dim sum and stir fried items instead of having dinner at Geylang Lorong 9. Frankly speaking, I think this Dim Sum restaurant located near I12 Katong Mall is better. continue reading

Prior to this visit, I had no idea that this Mongkok outlet actually had its roots coming from the outlet located at Geylang which I had long wanted to visit but never did. We did not really paid much attention to the eatery until we saw staff preparing the made-to-order Chee Cheong Fun at the window of the restaurant, which seemed silky smooth and fresh. That was enough to convince us that we must try this place out.I found the amount of sesame seeds on top of the Shredded Mango with Prawn ($3.20) a bit too excessive as it got stuck into my teeth way often. The mango were also a tad sour as opposed to the sweet ones we usually have with the dish. I like the fact that there was a strand of celery included between the prawn and mango that helped mediate the sourness from the mango. The prawns were succulent and the pastry was also pretty crispy. While it had its own shortcomings, it was not really too disappointing for us anyway.The Steamed Rice Roll with Shrimp ($3.20) was something we looked forward to especially after having seen the behind-the-scenes of its production earlier on. It changed the game left behind by the Shredded Mango with Prawn, with the Steamed Rice Roll being slippery yet of the right thickness that it does not tear easily but not too thick that it would not absorb the soy sauce. The shrimp was pretty succulent and absorbed much of the soy sauce’s sweetness as well. The flavours also did not overwhelm each other. One of the must-orders if you visit Mongkok.Pan-fried Carrot Cake ($3.20) was decent as it was considerably softer to sink into and had a lot more fibres than the ones usually served outside. It felt pretty different from the extremely firm ones that are becoming the norm these days, and the top was just so crispy.Just by it's name, the House Special Shrimp Dumpling ($3.20) was something we had high expectations for. The skin is crystal clear, and made to the perfect thickness that does not allow it to break easily, yet not too hard. It is also not sticky as it came off the piece of paper lying on the steamer fairly easily. The shrimp was pretty succulent and fresh, and became nearly everyone’s favourite dish at the table. A truly good item that should never be missed on a visit here.The honey-glazed pork in the Steamed BBQ Bun ($3.20) just exudes a level of sweetness that was seductive, though we would prefer that the skin of the bun to be slightly thinner as we had to bite quite deeply to get to the BBQ Pork.The Mongkok's Pork Dumpling ($3.20) gave the most chew with the right firmness. There is no fatty meat included, so every bite just feels uninterrupted and chewy to the last. The yellow skin was also just of the right thickness as well.This was my first attempt on trying Scallop Dumplings ($3.20) and I loved how the scallops are tender without it’s signature rubbery texture. The seaweed that wraps the dumpling layer may not hit well with non-seaweed lovers but I quite liked it. The dumpling layer felt pretty similar to the Mongkok Pork Dumpling.I am not fan of noodles, but I really loved the Stir-Fried Seafood Beehoon ($6.00). It was moist enough and had generous servings of ingredients especially with all the squids, BBQ pork and onions included. The amount of sauce added to stir-fry the noodles also seemed to be just right, which gave the beehoon a hint of sweetness and a bit of saltiness that made it pretty savoury as well.For more photos and the full review, please visit: http://jiaksimipng.wordpress.com/2013/11/10/mongkok-dim-sum-%E6%97%BA%E8%A7%92%E9%BB%9E%E5%BF%83-east-coast-road/ continue reading
