It’s Sunday. Autumn has arrived in a shroud of gloom and wetness. The End is clearly nigh but it’s ok, there’s one thing which still brightens my day. What could that be?
Dim sum at Pearl Liang. That’s what.
These photos were actually taken a couple of weeks ago but lately the weather has been more dim sum inclined than ever. I can’t imagine anything better than a steaming hot prawn and chive dumpling on a cold wet day, can you?
Anyway, you lucky things get a break from my endless waffling today with this offer of a photo post! Enjoy!
Cool logo for a Chinese restaurant, no?
Beautiful (but heavy!) cast iron tea pots
Barbecued pork puff
Paper wrap sesame prawn rolls
Bean pastry with prawn in abalone sauce
Prawn and chive dumplings
Wasabi prawn dumplings
Glutinous rice with meat
Pork shu mai
Deep fried custard bun
Tapioca with yam and coconut milk
Sweet black sesame balls
Everything was absolutely delicious, but my highlights from the meal? The wasabi prawn dumplings (with a very decent wasabi punch in the face), lobster noodles (ex Mandarin Kitchen chef, I hear) and the deep fried custard buns OMGSOSINFUL.
