So we calculated our sums. There are 30 mains and dim sum dishes on the menu, and 10 dessert items. That makes a total of 40 whopping dishes. If we were to order all 40 items, it would be equivalent to around $1.35+ per dish. And that us if we only order 1 item of each of the 40 items.

So we did some homework on the full menu to plan our attack strategy before heading down.

So we started off with the “One Serving only” items to get our money’s worth first.

The 黄焖鲍鱼刺参汤 Braised Abalone and Spiky Sea Cucumber Soup was hearty, robust and full of flavours. Just like Grandma’s double boiled home cooked nourishing soups.

The 川粤大拼盘(烧鸭,烧肉,口水鸡,凉拌三丝)(Roasted Duck, Roasted Pork, Chong Qing Chilled Chicken with Spicy Bean Sauce, Assorted Shredded Carrot withAssorted Mushroom) was not too bad as well. The duck skin was crispy, the meat was moist and tender, roasted pork had a crackling sensation, and the chilled chicken was tender and juicy.

The 金枕辣椒大红虾Chilli Prawns served with Deep-fried Mantou reminded us of chilli crabs in a similar sauce with the mantou dipped into the tomato base gravy. Ooh…..

滨纷香果比目鱼Halibut Fillet in Passion Fruit Sauce with Fresh Fruit – This was deep fried to perfection and very crispy.

重庆辣子鸡“Chong Qing” Diced Chicken with Spicy Dried Chilli – The mala was very spicy and gave our palates a numbing effect. The kick gave us a tingling sensation on our taste buds but it was a very enjoyable dish.

银鱼金蒜油麦菜Stir-fried “You Mai” Vegetable with Silver Fish and Garlic – We don’t usually order stir fried vegetables when dining out. How difficult is it to stir fry it at home? The wait staff perusaded us to give it a try though, and we were pretty impressed with this rendition.

After maximising our “one serving only” allocation, we attacked the dim sum items next.

The barometer of any dim sum restaurant is the Har Gow and Siew Mai. If these bread and butter items are no good, there is no need to try the rest of the dishes on the menu. Both were brilliant executed and steamed to perfection. The prawns were fresh, crunchy, juicy and succulent and the skin was not too thick. It would definitely pair well with Champagne.

港式鹑蛋猪脚醋Braised Pig Shank and Quail Egg in Vinegar and Ginger – a popular confinement food. The collagen in the skin was so soft that it melted in our mouths and the meat was tender and juicy.

We were so full by now and sad to say, we failed in our bid to conquer all 40 items on the menu.

To round off the afternoon, we only ordered 2 out of the 10 dessert items on the menu.

黄小米白果腐竹Double-boiled Gingko Nuts, Beancurd Skin and Millet

枸杞甜豆花Homemade Bean Curd with Wolfberry

Very nutritious and healthy desserts indeed, and not too sweet.

Overall Verdict: An extremely value for money all-you-can-eat ala carte dim sum buffet for this amazing price. To benchmark this against other dim sum joints and ordering via the ala carte menu, with typical items costing $5-10 per dish, it is a no-brainer to opt for this.

Tip: Skip breakfast and go on an empty stomach to fill up and skip dinner. So you pay $46++ and have your 3 meals in a day covered. Really worth it, what more can we say…
