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. 🙂

peanuts & chestnut appetizer

peanuts & chestnut appetizer

the appetizer here, peanuts & chestnuts, quite nice so we took it.

i think it’s about $2 & chinese tea like S$1.50pax.

radish pastry

we ordered 3 dimsum.

the radish pastry was nice. very competent, fluffy pastry, sweet, tasty radish fillings.

xioalongbao 小笼包

xioalongbao 小笼包 

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.

even the soup in the 生煎包 at 祥源记xiang yuan ji (405 jln besar on 1.12.2016) were much sweeter, tastier.

spicy dumplings 抄手

spicy dumplings 抄手 

the spicy dumplings 抄手 here very good, the slight mala 麻辣sauce, smooth, great tasting dumplings.

chashu ramen

chashu ramen 

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.

bean paste pancake 豆沙饼

bean paste pancake 豆沙饼 

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…

3 dimsum + ramen + dessert + tea & appetiser all added up to S$28…as i said previously one of the best value-for-money dimsum (12.8.2016)!

cendol @ old town white coffee

cendol @ old town white coffee

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).

cendol @ old town white coffee

cendol @ old town white coffee – S$3.90

this S$3.90 ok only not really good.

it maybe thicker than some hawker centres, but zero match to four seasons at toa payoh lor 8.

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.
