Dim Sum High Tea Buffet

Jade Restaurant
1, Fullerton Square
The Fullerton Hotel
tel: 6733-8388

Dim Sum screams excitement for a whole lot of people especially those born with Chinese taste buds. I'm influenced with the English fare but would never forget and often reminisce on foods derived from the Chinese origin.

The Piping hot steamed pork dumpling that oozes sweet soup with a light prick in the skin.
Slurpy good especially when accompanied with sliced ginger soaked in vinegar.

The Wasabi Prawn.
I've had bad experience with a similar dish served at Chinese banquets by chefs who try to imitate the innovation of fusion cuisine but failed at it. So, I was rather skeptical at trying this dish. But upon a third persuasion by my friend, I decided to give it a try..
my verdict.. yes, its rather good and interesting. But make sure u try your Wasabi prawn dish at renowned restaurants like here to have good memories of it.

Fried Cheese Dumplings.
- cheese is wrapped around the sticky glutinous rice ball dough and than deep fried and lightly dusted with sugar powder.

Fried Spring Rolls

Braised Chicken Feet

Steamed Prawn Dumpling
the prawns are really fresh, sweet and succulent.
This dish would be perfected with a slightly thinner skin, but is ok on a overall and still gets a passing mark from me.

Abalone Siew Mai
Yes! It is really mini abalone on top of the Siew Mai
The abalone is done well that it retains its natural flavors and easily chewed.
well done on this dish!

Chicken Soy Sauce noodles
a tad too oily and a slight disspointment on the taste. It is not horrible but I would suggest you to make good use on your tummy space by trying out other dishes instead.

Char Siew slices.
Tasty and not oily. 1 of the dishes that you should order.

Pan fried carrot cake:
- the thing about spending more on carrot cakes which is 1/3 the portion of a regular plate of carrot cake lies in the texture.
the reason behind people being willing to spend the bucks is the authenticity of the food ingredient. One gets to feel the real texture of fine hand shredded radish in the Pan fried carrot cakes served in Chinese Restaurants.
This dish is simple and real.

The crab and spinach soup in light chicken broth
my kind of soup.

Sweet and sour soup.
Pretty good as well. Tasty but not overwhelming.

The Dim Sum high tea buffet here is pretty decent and not as pricey imagined.
They adjust the price quite often, so do your research or give them a call for a pricecheck.
But the price at this time when i ate is $32-$36++, the average total cost is about $40 per pax
