yumcha at the scholar, dickson

so last last sunday, before exams, we decided to satisfy our dim sum cravings and head over to dickson for some good old dim sum! =)

we took the bus which leaves outside unilodge, and got there in about 20 mins to half an hour?


surprisingly, the place was actually quite full. and the atmosphere reminded me strongly of eating dim sum in restaurants back home. they even had that cart with the dim sum that they pushed around.


at first we couldn’t quite decide what to eat. i mean, we were thinking that it was possibly going to be expensive? so we held back in the beginning, getting the favourites first.


the char siew pau had a nice, sweet and savoury filling. the white pastry that held the char siew pau together was a bit too thick, but all in all it was a good way to start off the meal.


the siew mai was meaty, but lacked a certain something in it that we would get back home, couldn’t quite place my finger on what ingredient. but it was good too.


the yong tau foo was good! the brinjal was soft and tender and almost falling off the meat, which is how i like it. the sauce was sweet and sticky.


this was kinda like a fried ha gao. it was just filled with prawns. tad bit too oily for me, but fried food is supposed to be oily no?


the egg tart! was good. the pastry was flaky and the filling was soft with a tinge of sweetness

ok, so obviously we ate more that these things between the five of us, but i was too hungry so i stopped taking pictures. hehe. anyways, other than that i can remember that we ordered a bowl of porridge that wasn’t fantastic and some other food that i can’t remember. but we had a few plates of egg tart though.

and when the bill came, it was only about $17 per person. i was so surprised, i expected to pay a lot more. so definitely going back there again someday.
