Taro Cake 芋頭糕
taro cakes made with shitake mushrooms, dried shrimps and pork
pretty good but its cold =_="


Shrimp Dumpling 蝦餃
shrimp in wheat starch skin
this is pretty good, but the skins are not smooth enough

like the above, skins are not silky smooth enough - sloppy!

there's too little broth inside the dumpling
but the broth is tasty


Char Siew Bao 叉燒包

buns are not sweet or hot

this is pretty tasty! i like it!
the pork is flavorful and juicy.

Egg Tarts 蛋撻
egg custard in flaky puff pastry
biggest disappointment
sweetness is just right
but the puff pastry is hard and not crispy
