I'm waiting for the Sister's boyfriend to help me set it up, internet, programs and all. I'm such an IT idiot (okay, it's just me being plain lazy arse). Anyway, hopefully that means I can get to my lost files. Soon. Here are pictures for another dim sum brunch with the family. This time at Taste Paradise @ Ion. We wanted to go Royal China for dim sum but when we called the place, it was already fully booked. :( So Taste Paradise it was.
Tea; Appetizer; Dim sum; Taste Paradise
My top three perennial favourites - Egg tarts; Custard buns; Char siew pastry
Steamed buns; Stewed pork; Glutinous rice; Vegetables
Cheesy dim sum
XO Fried carrot cake; XLBs; Dessert platter
Overall? I feel that it's one of the better dim sum place in Singapore. The egg tarts were by far the best I've tried, but it was just a tad small yeah *hint management. The char siew pastry was oh my god-ish good, with its soft flaky exterior hiding sweet char siew pork. The custard bun? One word: Mmmmmmm. All my favourites were done up pretty well, making me one happy girl indeed. The crispy pork was just the right thickness, unlike the Lei Garden one which was really too meaty. But then again, some might exclaim that the more meat given, the better! Oh well, it's all about personal taste.
The rest of the dishes were not badd too, but the only gripe is that the XO carrot cake did not have any XO taste to it whatsoever. If they want to name a dish XO-something, they should have added enough XO to make the taste discernible rights? Yeah, except for that, the rest of the food, even the interesting dessert platter was nice. Thumbs up. Now, the next dim sum place better be that elusive Royal China...
