Queued the longest for any food in Singapore. Really underestimated we singaporeans tolerance for queuing for good food!! Was ushered seats promptly by friendly staffs.FOOD TIMEEEE Yummy Century Egg congee! Really enjoyed the smoothness of the congee and the tiny bits of century egg and minced pork. It's served bland so you may want to add a dash of soy sauce and pepper if you prefer * Its quite filling so be careful!Spring rolls!! These are served fresh amd SCALDING HOT. Burnt my tongue eating

Spring rolls!! These are served fresh amd SCALDING HOT. Burnt my tongue eating this. I would say the rolls are quite ordinary and do not excite my tastebuds. But real cripsy though.
I do not fancy this. Here's why.
1) Its too filling!
2) Not flavoured enough. Too bland
3) Sliced shiitake mushrooms not fragnant.
4) Rice have that bitter lotus leaf smell and taste.
THE CHILLI SAUCE HERE IS GREAT! Somewhat tangy and sweet, its has peanuts to heighten the fragrance of the sauce, with a little kick of hotness. Best dipped with spring rolls and the glutinous rice thingy.
Tim Ho Wan PLEASE SELL YOUR CHILLI SAUCE
Ahh, one of the 4 heavenly kings here. This tasted really good as you got the sweet flakey skin on the outside and juicy char siew bits inside. They complement really nicely!
I liked how these siew mais still maintain its moisture when you bite into them. Using fresh wolfberries and mushrooms you can really taste the difference between these and conventional Hawker Siew Mais.
Very chewy and fresh! I like! Skin is quite thin so to enjoy the chewyness of the juicy shrimp instead of a lump of flour. These looked really delicate!
It's appreciated that the staff poured the special sweet and salty sauce only when the chee cheong fun is served on the table. Its prevents it from turning too soggy. Char siew is nicely done while maintaining its sweetness. A bit touch to bite though. Cheong Fan is soft and breaks easily - like melts in yo mouth!
SIDENOTE: Really didnt enjoy the ambience of this place. Too noisy and too hot! Was sweating thoughout my meal. (Had to have a glass of PAID cold refillable water) I think that their intention is to stimulate the actual dining experience in a typical dim sum restaurant back in hong kong with the style of having afternoon tea while talking loudly. Creating a lively environment. But I think it's too real of a stimulation for me!
Anywayz a great place for lunch or dinner if you dont mind the heat generated by people and their voices!
