Restaurant Tin Sum – no prize in guessing what they sell. Curry Mee  lorrrr…errr…NOT.

You can usually expect a big crowd here, but one doesn’t have to wait that long to get a table. When you are hungry and you see this  bamboo thingy full of hot steaming  dimsum ..ahh…. my heart skipped a beat ( not too many lah ,or I might need an ambulance, let’s be rasional here !) , my  pupils dilated, my throat tightened – kinda like being in love.. :P

They have quite a large, variety of dimsum, the ‘traditional’  siew mai, har kau, chicken feet , fish balls etc  and other ‘innovative’ dimsum as well, or maybe I hadn’t been out of the cave too much..

Pix below- Top right ( with the green target practice thingy)  is fish paste + meat on hard boiled egg whites- I find this a bit bland, because the egg white which took up more than half a ratio of the unit is tasteless , as egg whites are.Bottom left- meat wrapped in fish paste- not bad , the other two dimsum were good as well, one thing I like about the stuffings in the dimsum served here  is , you don’t feel like you are eating a whole lot of packed minced meat, it doesn’t feel heavy or too meaty.

Pix below – In the larger plate- fish paste + minced meat + century eggs + prawns + carrots ,  with chicken lining the bottom portion – and all wrapped in fried soy sheets ( Fu pei) – how can this not taste good ? yummy.

The steamed fishpaste wrapped in soya sheets ( the oblong pale thingy ) is pretty good, the fish paste texture is nice.

The Chu Cheong Furn – not bad,  the other one- minced meat + prawns +carrots + century eggs wrapped in fried crispy soya sheets. GOOD !!
