A small place located in Chinatown but with a huge following. You probably can't find anywhere else to have Dim Sum or Chinese snacks, while looking at people bustling away, in an area with rich heritage culture.
As usual for a Sunday, the place was packed and we had to wait for an available table. The crowd is filled with people of different nationalities (I know this is strange as it sells Dim Sum). But, i guess for a Dim Sum Restaurant (If it is considered a restaurant) with so much fanfare (and good location), it is not surprising that even the tourists go in for a taste of the old Chinese lifestyle of yum cha.
The food is still good (this is like the umpteenth time i have went there for Dim Sum) and the staff is still rather friendly and prompt (Everyone seems so busy always). I simply love the open view kitchen, where you can see the cooks bustling and preparing what could well be your food.
The must tries are the rice rolls (soft and thin) with a very nicely blended sauce, the congee (I prefer the squid one and the pork one), the fried carrot cake (so much ingredients inside), the prawn with mango rolls (always so crispy and delectable) and the siew mai (4 in a steamer and you can really taste meat unless most sold outside where there is only starch and more starch).
If you still have space for more, you can try the egg tarts, glutinous rice with chicken (Lo Mai Kai), Fried banana with prawn and the Cha Siew Suo.
Of course there are many more. Like if you take raw food and wish to try the chinese style of sashimi, you can try the Yu Sheng or Raw Fish as well.
The only issue for me? The prices have gone up a fair bit and it now easily cost around 30 bucks for 2 persons on average to have a meal.
Lastly, to wash down all that, you can get a pot of tea to go with it all and truly yum cha.
