We selected 10 different dim sum dishes to try. The first to arrive was our Century Egg with Lean Pork Congee. It cost $9 per bowl and the portion was meant for one! I felt that the congee was ok only & when I tried to bite the deep fried 'you tiao' bits, it was extremely hard that i had to give up on the bigger chunks!

All their dim sum items comes in 3s, so we topped up to 4 pieces for every one. The Liu Sha Bao aka Salted Egg Yolk Bun was nice! I count that as my favourite as the yolk was oozing once you bite into the bun. It is also just right, not too sweet.

The Siew Mai & Har Gao were quite big but pretty normal.

I noticed a unique item on the menu, which states 草莓芋泥角 (Yam Croquette with Strawberry). The outlook seems good but I find that the yam is abit dry, it will be perfect if it is more moist. Oh ya, the strawberry topping was sour!

When the Xiao Long Bao 小龍包 (pork dumpling) was served individually, i admit i like its presentation & it is also easier to eat. I love Xiao Long Bao & these were pretty juicy as i drank up its soup! We also ordered the Chicken Claws & Pork Ribs but I couldn't comment as I do not eat these two items.

To end off our meal, we ordered four types of desserts. My mum had the Hot Almond Tea with Papaya; dad had the Honey Custard, bro chose the Aloe Vera with fruits & lastly I had the Pomelo with Mango ice-cream (芒果雪糕加楊枝甘露). The dark brownish honey custard was moist & soft, but I would prefer it to be more sweet (not my ideal kind of dessert). The Pomelo with Mango ice-cream was nice but I wish they can be more generous with the pomelo bits!

In a nutshell, we are unlikely to return again as it is really much more expensive & I only like 3 out of 10 items. Just a note, Citibank normal credit cards get 10%, while Citibank Platinum get 15% off the bill.
