Sunday dim sum brunch is usually a crowded affair. Reservations have to be made days in advance, screaming children and noisy atmosphere. But for those who are willing to travel a little bit, Cassia over at Sentosa's Capella Hotel offers a classy and quiet atmosphere.
We were served this 碧螺春 Jade Spring Tea (S$12 per person). Not cheap, but the tea had a fragrant and refreshing taste.
How the restaurant looks like. Classy feeling.
Started our brunch with Amuse Bouche : chilled prawn in spicy sour sauce. We can't stop eating the Homemade chilli dried prawn paste.
One of their specialty is the Crystal Pumpkin Dumplings (S$6.80) with prawns. Teh skin is almost transparent, allowing diners to see the beuatiful orange hue.
Another nice item was the Char Siew Buns with Truffles (3 for S$7.20). Fluffy and soft.
Vegetable Crystal Dumplings (S$5.80) is suitable for vegetarians. Crunchy vegetable morsels in semi-translucent skin.
Another of their signature dim sum items are these Abalone Siew Mai (S$12). Each Siew Mai is topped with a baby abalone.
Fish & Compoy Porridge (S$10) - some warm porridge to warm the stomach.
Also shared the Century Egg Porridge (S$6.80). The portions of the porridge here are actually very small. Compare the size of the bowl with the size of the condiments.
Also had the Steamed Chicken Rice Roll with truffle (S$4.80)
And the Glutinous Rice (S$4.80), Pan fried with chicken and dried scallop
Papaya Almond Chicken Soup with white fungus (S$12)
Double boiled chicken soup with conpoy, cordyceps flower, bamboo pith and mushroom (S$12).
