3 of us OPS friends decided to have afternoon snack at paradise dynasty at OneKM mall on 17.1.2017. ^^
they have 50% off dumsum & ramen & desserts 3pm to 5.15pm. 🙂
the appetizer here, peanuts & chestnuts, quite nice so we took it.
i think it’s about $2 & chinese tea like S$1.50pax.
we ordered 3 dimsum.
the radish pastry was nice. very competent, fluffy pastry, sweet, tasty radish fillings.
xioalongbao 小笼包 here average. quite ok but other places like crystal jade, imperial treasures etc are better.
skin was ok, thin & held up not breaking easily, the soup was sweet but not as tasty as other places.
the spicy dumplings 抄手 here very good, the slight mala 麻辣sauce, smooth, great tasting dumplings.
the braised pork belly lamian, was quite good, but like my friend said, a long distant behind a good japanese chashumen. the pork belly texture, taste very different, far from a good chashumen standard.
one friend ordered the bean paste pancake 豆沙饼.
not my favourite dessert, but they do it very well here, crispy skin, not too sweet red bean paste, very good really…
after the dimsum tea session, we adjourned to old town white coffee for cendol, more like no other place to go for cendol around here (but later we found ther’s another one incik tan or something claiming penang food…we should try that next time).
this S$3.90 ok only not really good.
the gula melaka was totally inferior, looked thick but did not have the “pang” intense flavours, coconut milk too. i think this place 2 times more than enough for me.
