Passed by the coffee shop here in the evening and saw quite a nice array of Pau and Dim Sum such as Char Siew Pastry, Popiah, Sesame Ball, Chee Cheong Fun, and so on. These looked really very tempting in the display and since I was hungry, I got a few to try.Lian Rong Pau ($0.90)The pau was too dry which made it a tad difficult to chew on. The filling was actually quite nice and it was sweet and moist enough for me but I found the portion given somewhat too small for the entire pau, so it didn't
The pau was too dry which made it a tad difficult to chew on. The filling was actually quite nice and it was sweet and moist enough for me but I found the portion given somewhat too small for the entire pau, so it didn't really do much to make up for the dryness of the pau. Egg Tart ($0.70) - Bottom Left
This was quite crumbly and the egg custard was pretty smooth, but the taste was a little too light for me with just a tiny hint of sweetness. It's good if you prefer something light. I enjoyed the crust though!
Siew Mai ($0.60) - Bottom Right
This was the best of the lot. The meat was very tender and juicy. I thought it was worth its price tag of $0.60 as I've tasted less tastier ones at higher prices. Will definitely get more of this next time!
Admittedly, service was so-so and the lady was pretty snappish when I asked about one of the pau but I supposed it was a busy day and one can't expect too much from a coffee shop stall. To her credit though, she was aware when someone actually cut queue in front of me and took my order first even though there wasn't really a proper queue here. That scored some points in my book.
I wouldn't discount the possibility of paying this stall another visit in future to try the other pau and dim sum, especially since the dim sum here are quite affordable, but just probably not during busy periods.
