Next are the popular classics, in two servings, such as Ha Kau (Hakaw) that impresses with its huge chunk of fresh shrimp; the Siao Mai (Siomai) is stuffed with quality ground pork from Hong Kong; and “Chao Zhou” Style Dumpling has that raw complementing tastes of peanut, pork and spinach. More steamed delicacies are Pork Spareribs tossed in black bean sauce making it more piquant, succulent Chicken Feet in our chef’s homemade secret marinade, and Glutinous Rice made aromatic by its lotus leaf wrapper and flavorful because of its shrimp, pork and egg yolk stuffing.
Next to love are their rice rolls that are perfectly handmade in thickness and appetizing filler options such as well-seasoned Barbecued Pork with cilantro, Minced Beef with fresh enoki mushrooms, and buttery Dough Fritters.
Then, to keep you more satiated, decide whether you would go for Yang Chow Fried Rice sprinkled generously with vegetables and seafood, Fried Rice Noodles with tender beef and beans, and Braised E-fu noodles seasoned by rich meat-like black mushrooms. And of course, the desserts are off to claim its own fame. Choices are Steamed Custard Bun with oozing egg yolk inside and Baked Barbecue Pork Bun that has a textured crust and well-seasoned pork filling.
