>Just a day before my visit to Oriental Spoon, I stumbled upon this. Its a blog review (with loads of “comments”) about Oriental Spoon which really made me doubt bout my decision in dining over there.
On the eventual day, the restaurant was full house but surprisingly service was quite prompt. Dim sum were served fast & furious, except for some popular dim sum like egg tarts which took quite awhile. Seem like my qualm before I came is unnecessary, perhaps the management really read the bad comments and take the que to triple their services level.
I think we are the lucky one ~.~
Open Kitchen concept..
Steamed Spinach Buns with Sesame Paste
“Mutant” version of Hedgehog Bun (described by one of my makan gang)!! Fat hedgehog…….but the black sesame paste filling is less than desired….
Poached Lotus Root with ‘Gui Hua’ Syrup
Weird taste… a bit sour, a bit sweet….
Puff Pastry with Winter Melon Paste
I like the flaky pastry on it…
Fried Spring Roll
A bit oily, not much ingredients until I cannot figure out what was inside…
Stewed Beef Brisket with White Radish
The beef brisket & radish were cooked until soft.. the broth was very dense with “beefy” aroma & flavor.. yummy..
Lotus Leaf Rice
I didn’t eat this, but I saw salted egg yolk inside
Tasted mediocre, nothing to shout about.
Fried Yam Puffs
The meat & veggies cube inside went well with the yam paste….
Dumpling in Superior Soup
I wonder why the waitress called this “siu long bao”? Tasted just mediocre as well….
Definitely star of the day!!! Flaky pastry + the smooth silky egg filling. We ate 4 plates!!!
Steamed Beef Balls in Beancurd Skin
Complete disaster!!!! The texture of the beef ball were so soggy until it didn’t taste like beef at all!!! I almost wanted to vomit it all out >_<"
Steamed Chicken Feet with Homemade Sauce
Chicken feet were soft and fully flavored…
Pan Fried Yam Cake
Yong Tau Foo
Steamed ‘Siew Mai’
Still tasty with succulent prawns….. impressive as its without the usual porkie stuff 😛
Chilled Strawberry Pudding
The strawberry pudding were of a nice sour flavor that it is so refreshing!! It was so popular with the diners that when we wanted a second helping, it’s all “sold out”… *sob*sob*
Fried Rice with XO Sauce & Stuffed Bittergourd (far end)
I like this fried rice but didn’t eat much of it because have to save more “room” for more dim sum …..hehe 😛
Chicken & Century Egg Porridge
Smooth porridge, decent & palatable.
Fried Mee Hoon
Fried Radish Cake with Bonito Flakes
The bonito flakes really gave the radish cake a new lease of life.. Fusion?
Char Siew Bao
The fluffy skin definitely win my vote!!!
Chee Cheong Fun
Cheong fun with corns & meat, new combinations huh~~
Steam Lamb Rib
Being a direct replacement for the usual pork rib, it did a real good job!!! It even have some white radish underneath that soak all the sauce…. Nice..
