After trying so many Dim Sums in Singapore over the past few years, when I came across quite a few blogs raving about how good the Dim Sums at Taste Paradie were, I made it a point to come here for lunch.
Heard about the long queues during weekends, so came here during weekday lunch.
I can never get tired looking at these huge life sized paintings of the various Emperors from different dynasties eras. Though they do look eerie now given that this is the 7th Month.
Our first dish was the XO Carrot Cake (S$7.80). I find it just okay and pretty average.
Fried Spring Rolls (3 for 3.80) - It was unique as it had roasted duck pieces inside, machiam like a deep fried Peking Duck roll. Nice.
Crackling Pork (S$12.80) - I love biting into the crackling crispy roast pork skin with juicy pork. The version here doesn't fail.
Steamed Cod Fish (S$4.20) - I wonder if the served us the wrong thing, but there is nothing "cod fish" in this... can't taste the cod....
Siew Mai (S$4.80) - Very good version. Juicy and plump.
Steamed Beef Balls (S$3.80) - I will avoid ordering beef balls in all restaurants given that all of them loves to add coriander leaves inside.
Char Siew Buns (S$3.90) - Bao skin is thin and fluffy, pork fillings are delicious.
Fried Pork Buns (S$3.80) - One of the few Chinese restaurants in Singapore to serve this crispy and juicy dish...
The meat fillings inside is savoury and juicy, while the outside skin is crispy and slightly charred.
Steamed Custard Buns (S$4.20)
Runny glisttering egg yolk custard flowing out from the white buns.
Chee Cheong Fun with Shrimps (S$5.50) - Pretty ordinary.
Har Gao (S$4.80) - Not sure why this was the last to arrive. But the prawns fillings are pretty sweet and tasty. Skin's thin too.
My verdict is that this is indeed one of the best Dim Sum place in Singapore. Will come back more often.
