Warning: Tidak Ditanggung Halal
Getting over my Facebook Photo Album, I found that there's still some food that I haven't post yet for my trip to Singapore way back in May. So the next day after my uninvited visit to Nuffnang office, my brother-in-law brought us to eat dim sum in Imperial Treasuer Nan Bei, Ngee Ann City.
A typical yum cha set up.
This restaurant is in a shopping center and part of it is not covered by wall. Boss Ming passed by here and saw me. We say hi and he went on his way.
What's nice is that the staff that took our order can speak Cantonese, hence easy for us to order because some of the dim sum if spoken in Mandarin just feel weird. For me lah.
A long list of our orders:
Xiao Lung Bao, Wo Tip, Gun Dong Gao (Shark Fin dumpling in soup), Crystal Prawn Dumpling, and Char Siu Bao (BBQ Pork Steam Bun)
Scallop Chee Cheong Fun, Beef Meatball with Vegetable, Scallop and Spinach Dumpling, Tied Chicken Meat with 4 Treasure, Fried Salad Prawn Puff, Custard Salty Egg Yolk Bun, and Kuih Lapis
Fresh Prawn Wantan Mee, Century Egg and Lean Pork Poriddge, and Scholar Poriddge (Pork Liver Poriddge)
Well, words alone is hard to describe. Let us move on with the picture of the food.
The texture is to my liking. Smooth and soft. You don't get the rice like feeling, that's how I like my porridge. Unless we're talking about Teo Chew style porridge. Cantonese style porridge should be like this.
Fresh Scallop Chee Cheong Fun
Just by looking at it you know it's delicious.
I recommending this for those of you who happen to come here. This is the nearest one can find that taste exactly like wantan mee you find in Hong Kong.
Fresh Prawn Dumpling
The litmus test of a dim sum restaurant. I'll say they passed with flying colours.
Char Siu Bao
Up to the standard. For someone that doesn't normally eat Char Siu Bao like me.
Picture worth a thousand words.
Spinach is one of my favourite vegetable. Nice.
Beef Meatball with Vegetable
Not too bad.
Thousands Layer Cake
My mum's favourite.
My sis, me and my mum. Do we look alike?
Okay, time for some dessert.
Lychee and Almond Jelly
Yong Chi Gum Loh
Hong Kong proud import.
