went with sis & bil for dimsum at red house prinsep street on 25.5.2016. ^^
i was here a few times recently, one lunch & 2 dinners. 🙂
this time though we were just having dimsum. ^^
for me the quality of dimsum here is really very good, among the best i had in singapore.
& there is a 40% discount on dimsum up to end dec. all dimsum items were S$6 (except cheong fun S$7 & chilli crab bun S$10) so a very good price of S$3.60 per item after 40% discount.
prawn cheong fun 虾肠粉 was very good, quite exceptional outside hong kong. skin was thin & smooth, nice prawns & very tasty sauce. this a dish many good dimsum restaurants in singapore don’t get right!
har gao was good. many restaurants here good so not exceptional.
fupeiquin腐皮卷 also very good, among the best. 🙂
crispy char siew pao ok.
but somehow i feel timhowan at hong kong shamshuipo is just better!
the dragon beard dumpling was very good.
this “salad” deepfried dumpling炸水饺 served with salad sauce i didn’t like.
for me the very last in the line after the so many good dimsum items.
steamed pork ribs here very good, nice yam & flavours, not too fatty meat, among the very best!
steamed chicken feet also very good.
the salted egg custard bun 咸蛋流沙包, salted egg custard very good, but the pao so so, a bit thick the skin i think…
overall, still very nice salted egg custard bun la.
tea was S$1.50 each. we did not take any S$3 appetizer. total was S$49.40 nett for 10 dimsum items plus 3pax tea and ++…i think it was very good for the standard of dimsum.
the one thing here deserving repeated mention is the excellent service. service was competent, prompt, friendly with a smile everytime. we ticked/ordered wrongly the char siew pao & they just changed for us to crispy char siew pao, no questions asked! they changed plates all the time, gave extra wet napkins (when we ate chilli crab etc here last time they changed new wet napkins like 5 times), responded to all our questions regards promotions, menus, vouchers etc & never pushed us to order non promo items etc.
service was just superb, and it was every server the same cheerful friendly attitude, super! outstanding!
