Initially there aren’t enough seats for 6 persons but the auntie there helped us by asking a customer politely to move to the side table so that we can have a table for 6 together.
Nice service attitude ;D
I decided to order the Dumpling Noodles Soup which is $5.90, with the $1.50 meal upgrade for a bowl of almond paste and a carrot cake.
When placing my order at the counter, the service staff recommended certain dishes to us such as the glutinous rice ball and the other desserts.
It’s alright that she’s introducing the products to us but what irritated me a little was that she kept on asking and indirectly insisting us to get her recommendations.
She kept saying that it’s nice and etc. In the end I agreed to get a pair of glutinous rice balls for an extra $1.
She did not gave up recommending others even after this :x
Normally the dessert and carrot cake will come first but the mains came first this time.
My dumpling noodles soup took a while to arrive and when it does, we spotted a strand of hair in the bowl.
Immediately I requested for a change and glad that the service staff politely apologized and changed it.
The taste of the dumpling noodles soup is average. The soup base is light and a little bland.
The guo tiao I ordered is bland too, the flavours did not blend in well. The noodles and soup portion was quite disappointing but the dumplings are nice though ;D
The ingredients in the dumplings are pretty generous and the flavor is just right. The paste in it tastes nice and retains a chewy texture.
The carrot cake was nicely fried and is fragrant, soft and nice ;D
The almond paste is as usual, thick and with the right amount of almond taste.
Overall it’s a satisfactory visit, with an affordable price where you can get a meal for below $10.
