Dim Dim The Hong Kong Pantry

Was invited for a food session at Dim Dim located at Marina Link, and brought my sister along.

Both of us went after work so we got there separately, and she got annoyed because she walked the whole of Marina Square but could not find the place. You know how Marina Square is a + shape? Walking to and fro is really tiring one! Haha. Turns out it is located at an extension which can be accessed from The Dining Edition.

Jacelyn was there too! I had Hong Kong Milk Tea ($2.60) while she had Ice Lemon Tea.

We had the Cuttlefish and Peanut Congee ($5.00) to start!

The Steamed Prawn Dumpling "Ha Kau" ($4.20) was my favorite dish that night. Good Ha Kau is not easy to find and most places serve mediocre ones, but the ones here were done well. Handmade with fresh, plump, juicy prawns and wrapped with skin that is just the right taste.

Baked BBQ Honey Pork Bun Coated with Crispy Butter ($4.20). Crispy on the outside and savoury inside. It is one of Dim Dim's speciality and popular dish, baked with melted sugar and cream on top of the bun.

The Steamed Custard Bun ($4.20) was surprisingly good too, as not many place makes me give the thumbs up. In Chinese, it is called "Liu Sha Bao", and remember to enjoy it hot for maximum pleasure.

Deep-fried Shrimp in Beancurd Skin Roll ($4.60), one of the items I always order when I have dimsum! Love the generous, juicy shrimp filling wrapped in crispy skin.

We also had Mini Egg Tarts ($3.60), which were freshly baked that day. The puff crust is crispy thin, while the filling was extremely soft and yums! A sweet treat for the day :)

The Steamed Cheong Fun with Chinese Dough Fritters ($3.60) is an interesting combination for all of us at the table. Love the texture of the silky smooth and thin Cheong Fun, soaked in their special peanut and seafood sauce!

Besides being affordable and good, the Dim Sum at Dim Dim The Hong Kong Pantry is also 100% handmade using the freshest ingredients and served piping hot. Definitely important for a Dim Sum restaurant!

*Usual portion is 3 pieces per basket for some of the items.
