At the area for a Saturday morning meeting and decided to reward myself with some dim sum!
Being a rather hot day, we decided to try Luk Yu Teahouse & Restaurant at Chinatown Point, which is air-conditioned.
We have tried the Luk Yu Teahouse & Restaurant in Hong Kong but this is apparently not affiliated whatsoever with them. This one in Singapore is under the Swatow Seafood Group of restaurants (there’s another branch in ION).
The deco is distinctively oriental with waiters and waitresses wearing oriental uniforms. They were also quite upmarket with their own set of cutlery down to the sauce dispenser.
We were kind of hungry so we ordered quite a bit. 🙂
- Siew Mai with Fish Roe 鱼香烧卖皇 ($4.50 for 3): Yummy! Not at all oily and the size was just right, so we didn’t feel any gelat-ness.
- Chinese Chives and Shrimp Dumpling 翠宝水晶粿 ($4.50 for 3): Another winner, the crystal-clear skin was done quite well, without being overly thick. Shrimp tasted fresh too!
- Scallop Dumpling with Fish Roe 妃子带子饺 ($4.50 for 3): The overall combination was delicious, but it was more shrimp than scallop.
- Beef Ball Hong Kong Style 港蒸牛肉球 ($4.50 for 3): Not bad at all! I liked that it was not overpowered with orange peel flavours.
- Baked BBQ Pork Bun 酥皮焗叉烧包 ($4.50 for 3): Waste of stomach space… It was served barely warm and tasted too sweet and oily.
- Xiao Long Bao 汤汁小笼包 ($4.50 for 3): The soup was not bad, but the skin was way too thick!
- Chilled Sliced Pork Knuckles 佛山熏蹄 ($6.80): Quite disappointed with this dish, could have been served more chilled and less oily.
- Spinach in Egg Sauce 三色旦上汤zheng xian cai ($12.80): As usual, we enjoyed this dish 🙂
Just a note that only 菊花 and 水仙 (which tasted abit like 铁观音) are $2 per pax, its $9 per pot for 普洱! Luckily the waitress told us the price while confirming our orders…
Note that there is an additional 10% service charge and 7% GST. There is an ongoing daily promotion now, with 30% off all dim sum items from 3pm to 5pm.
