|Sew Mai Dumplings|
The first thing I noticed was that there wasn't much variety of dumplings and other yum cha dishes available though they did have your basics and a few other additional dishes such as your deep fried taro dumplings, fried eggplant, vegetable and scallop dumplings.
|Vegetable and seafood dumplings|
|Salt and Pepper Squid - $15.90|
|Mince pork gluten dumplings|
|Mango sago pudding - $9.50|
In my opinion, their food isn't all that special. Their sew mai was as tasty as Zilver or other large yum cha places however it definitely did taste healthier in the sense there was less MSG and pork fat used. Their chicken feet were smaller but there were more of items to make up for it and the pork mince dumplings were nice. The salt and pepper squid was a bit of a disappointment because it was soggy but that wouldn't have been the Chef's fault because it must have been on the serving plate for a while.
The major disappointment however was the mango sago pudding which contained no real mango and barely any sago. I understand that it isn't mango season and have replaced it with paw paw instead but it was extremely extremely sweet to the point it tasted artificially. Sadly the say, the dish did not do any justice to the restaurant.
Even though the service was decent, the pricing of some of their dishes was over priced such as the salt and pepper squid as well as the mango sago. Fair enough the serving of the mango sago was generous but the salt and pepper squid was small for its price.
