。Dragon-I – 近水樓台的點心放題。
Walking pass Dragon-i every day when I go to work these 2 years. Even though I have heard about the Dim-Sum buffet, or you may say all-you-can-eat dim sum lunch, I have never come for a try. So glad to have my colleagues to try this with me this time. There are around 30 different dim sum on the menu. Server would place order according to the diners on the table , and make sure you would have enough to share.
We ordered 15 dimsum, and of course, we had shrimp dumplings and pork dumpling (Siao mai). These spinach dumplings were a surprise to us. (You see how green they were!) They were made by spinach inside and out. It tasted good and fresh, but it was also very soft. Be aware of that !
Pan-fried dumplings looked golden crispy. They were so juicy that I almost split the juice onto everyone’s face. haha.
How would you miss some deep-fried items when you go to yum cha (enjoy a Chinese dimsum lunch)? The deep-fried crab was so chewy and crunchy, and we were all surprise that it was listed on the menu. Couldn’t wait to have it again.
Soup dumplings with bamboo fungus and crab meat was the dimsum everyone looked forward to. It was filled with lots of ingredients, full of crab meat and bamboo fungus that you may not find in a formal Chinese restaurant. Soup was light but with rich crab flavour.
Rice rolls were also in pretty good quality. Chive and shrimp rice rolls were crystal clear and tasted very smooth. Shrimps were fresh and big. On the other hand, the vegetarian rice rolls were also very nice as the spring rolls inside were so crispy and made a contrast with the smooth rice rolls. Worth to try.
Lotus seed paste deep-fried dumplings, the dessert, was another must-try. It was at its perfect texture, a bit sticky and crispy. The sweetness was also at its right balance. I couldn’t stop myself to eat 2 and wanted to order more.
It is a place that I walk pass every day but I didn’t pay much attention at it. Perhaps I should walk a bit slower and look a bit closer.
