And there are only few places we know of that offers Dim Sum buffet!
So Picky Girlfriend and Fussy Boyfriend will try the food and let you know which items are the ones which are worth trying. Here's what we tried:
Mee goreng? You must be thinking this is not dim sum at all! Yes, it is not as this Hi-tea buffet includes some other categories such as hot & cold appetisers, noodles, all time favourites, dim sum etc!
And Picky Girlfriend and Fussy Boyfriend were too hungry that we finished the noodles since it was the first dish among the others that were served first!
The noodles were surprising quite tasty (or were we too hungry?) and is not spicy which Fussy Boyfriend likes! Ingredients include vegetables, tomato and prawns and we liked the fact that the prawns are fresh and crunchy!
And of course the ingredients that are excessively used in dim sum are either Pork / Prawns. So here's another 2 items that we recommend.
Baked Flaky BBQ Pork Pastry
We really loved this as this is really crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. The crust is coated with honey that gives it an extra flavour as the sesame seeds make it more fragrant as well. Char siew was also very well done and contains mainly of lean meat as compared to some others we have tried before that has alot of fatty meat.
Steamed BBQ Pork Bun
Look at how fluffy the buns are!
This is one of Picky Girlfriend's favourite as the buns are "open-mouth" char siew bun! Usually such buns taste better than those which are wrapped up closely as the bun is fluffy and tasted lighter than the normal ones.
A closer look.
Very mouth watering isn't?
The inside of the bun is moist and has alot of char siew filling. Similar to the BBQ Pork Pastry, little fatty meat is used. Very yummy ;)
There are more pictures and reviews to come, up in the next post - we will talk about the must-haves in all dim sum:
