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 !!
The char siu pau _ Hmm..Good
This ala Alleycats afro thingy – as it arrived
This is what it looked like after being cut- under all the wanton skin shreds -salted egg yolk + big chunks of prawn + minced meat…Wonderful.. one can seldom find fault with the taste salted egg yolks horr…
We ordered way too much, so, I had to forgo the wu-kok this time around.. sniff…what a pity..maybe next time !
