REALLY GOOD
1st 蜜汁叉烧肠粉 BARBECUED PORK RICE ROLL
The Chinese Restaurant, Singapore
It’s one of those things that can be basic yet delicious because it’s done well.
2nd 煎堆 DEEP FRIED SESAME BALLS
Restoran Meng Xiang, Johor Bahru
These were filled with ground peanuts and were yummy. 😋
3rd 焗菠萝叉烧包 BAKED BARBECUED PORK BUNS
Wah Lok, Singapore
I think this is one of the restaurant’s signature items. It was very tasty.
4th 水晶鲜虾饺 STEAMED PRAWN DUMPLINGS
Wah Lok, Singapore
I’m not usually crazy about har gao but these were really well done.
17th 品香蜂巢炸荔角 DEEP FRIED YAM CAKE
Restoran Loon Sing Sdn Bhd 隆盛佛跳墙酒家, Nilai
I’m now curious about creating that fried lacy batter around the taro.
19th 金瓜黄金流沙包 GOLDEN BAO
Restoran Jiah Xiang 佳香点心茶楼, Johor Bahru
I’m not sure there was pumpkin in the filling (as the name in Chinese suggests), but there was definitely salted egg yolk in the custardy filling.
21st 叉烧包 CHA SIU PAO
Hoong Foong Dim Sum, Subang Jaya
Pretty good but my eye spies what looks like a strand of 👃🏼 hair and I cannot unsee it now. 😖
26th 芋蓉酥 MINI YAM PASTRY
The Chinese Restaurant, Singapore
Sweet yam purée enclosed in bland flaky pastry.
NOT FOR ME
28th 腊味糯米卷 STEAMED CHINESE SAUSAGE GLUTINOUS RICE ROLL
The Chinese Restaurant, Singapore
Did not care for the glutinous rice or the idea of sandwiching it between steamed bread. ❌
