This is our first time blogging about this restaurant but we have came here many times and is one of my (Faith's) favorite dim sum restaurants. 

On the Table:

Steamed Rice Rolls Stuffed with Chinese Donuts

The Chinese donut wrapped in rice roll was great! The donuts was crispy and not soggy at all. One of my favorite dish in this restaurant.

Steamed Shrimp Dumplings (Haw Gow)
Another one of my favorites and I most eat at all dim sum restaurant is Steamed Shrimp Dumplings (Haw Gow), they were plump with lots of shrimp with kind of sticky and gummy skin but the skin was the right thickness. They were really big!

We forgot the name of this dumpling dish but my grandpa liked it a lot, it's one of his favorite dishes to eat at dim sum, the skin wasn't too thick and it had a crunchy texture inside, quite good.

Eggplant stuffed with shrimp
It was our first time eating and ordering Eggplant stuffed with shrimp at a dim sum even our grandparents never ate it before. I personally thought it was pretty yummy, it wasn't piping hot when it came, it was warm, the eggplant wasn't mushy or undercooked and the shrimp had a nice bounce to it. The black bean sauce didn't really enhance it but the sauce wasn't flavorless or anything, I like the sauce and it taste great with rice! but it made the shrimp a bit soggy. I like the eggplant dish, we might order it again sometime. 

The last dish that we got was the Spareribs with black bean since on rice. Nothing to really say about this dish, it was a pretty average dish that taste exactly like the name. The spareribs were moist and flavorful but weren't a lot of spareribs, the rice taste really good with the sauce from the eggplant. 

Flowers we saw while walking back to the car, they're very pretty and colourful!

We were happy and full with the dishes we ate. The service was good like most dim sum restaurants. The food was either yummy or average.  We would come here again if we were in the area. And go to galaxy bakery and buy their chestnut swiss roll! my favorite roll of all time, but sadly the price had went up D:
