The Yu Sheng was served with crab meat and fried salmon skin instead of the unhealthy fried crackers. The sauces embedded in the Yu Sheng were also different from the traditional kind, it was less sweet and more savoury. It's a new kind of yu sheng taste to me. The freshly friend salmon skin was a good treat, as they were crispy and added a good crunchy into every mouthful of yu sheng!

Served individually in a pumpkin, this shark's fin had a subtle taste of pumpkin with every sip. There were huge chunks of sharks fin in the pumpkin and it was very flavourful even without the pepper or vinegar.

The abalones were pletntiful, the vegetables though mostly stems were juicy and not too oily. The fish maw was soft and delightful to chew on.

This was my favourite of the dishes. A crispy exterior of salted egg batter, over a very fresh and crunchy prawn that was pipping hot! I love everything with salted egg on it and having it fried with prawns just makes this a winner for me!

This duck was a lot tougher than expected. It was cooked more in a way that they would cook a goose. I can imagine that this would go well with "kong bak pau" bread. The fatty skin was hard to separate from the meat itself. As the meat was quite tough, they were thinly sliced.

The fish was very fresh and the sauce was sweet and cooked to perfection. Drowning my bite sized fish portions with the sauce did not encourage me to feel thirsty, something that normally happens at other eateries. I can tell that their sauce isn't overly sweet or heavily ladden with MSG because of this.

The most "normal" of the dishes, with the other dishes setting a high standard for the food here, this dish was just too "normal". It tasted like any kind of steamed fried rice in  lotus leaf. There were chunks of dried scallops everywhere in this dish, just wished that they had added some mushrooms in there too.

I didn't quite like this, it was quite bitter and Tung Lok did their best by adding as much rock sugar as they could to offset the bitterness. Maybe it's because I don't like ginseng, but this just tasted strange to me. It was also served cold.

I love their porridge here, served generously with alot of cubed century egg. It's one of the few porridges that I would love to eat! It is also topped with a handful of fried crackers.

For $118 per pax, it's twice as much as what we paid for dim sum last year. Was the food good? Yes it was, but I think we will go back to dim sum next year. We were too full from the food and didn't quite enjoy it as much as we had hoped to.
