People in Singapore really enjoy yum cha on weekend mornings. Some popular ones, such as this Asia Grand, requires a booking of at least 2 to 3 days in advance, as it is almost impossible to get a table here on the day itself.
The restaurant is located right in the heart of the city, next to Bras Basah McDonald's. Service was very polite and prompt.

We were first served some chilled vegetables and XO sauce, which were labelled as Pickles (S$3) on the receipt.
I really dig into the Roast Crispy Pork (S$11). Skin is crunchy, and the pork is juicy and not too salty.
Asia Grand's Shrimp Dumpling (S$5.20), or more commonly known as Har Kow, had lot's of crunchy prawns inside.
The Century Egg Porridge (S$8) is best to be shared among 2 diners. Portion is really big.
I also like the Shrimp Rice Rolls (S$5.80), called Chee Cheong Fun with Prawns here in Singapore. The skin was smooth and thin.
This "Jian Shui Jiao" is not often seen in Singapore, but more popular in Hong Kong. The deep fried "salty" dumplings (S$4.20) actually has similar skin as our Soon Kueh, just that it was deep fried. The fillings were a combination of pork and some crunchy vegetables.
One of the best item from Asia Grand is their Siew Mai (S$4.80). They are not stingy with the ingredients, and you can taste the pork, prawns and mushrooms in each of these little packets.
And finally, Crispy Prawn Dumplings (S$5.20) which is to be dipped in the creamy mayo.
