There’s once Chun booked a dim sum dining 2 weeks in advance because he couldn’t get us a table 1 week before.  And do you know which dim sum restaurant I meant?? No, not Tim Ho Wan although it’s most raved restaurant now.. It’s the best dim sum in Singapore claimed by some other bloggers, the Royal China @ Raffles Hotel.

2 weeks in advance babe! We’re not celebrating anything, its just that we love dim sum. So we eat for pleasure..

My first look at the dining room.. I totally felt cozy coz of the Antoinette teal color they used… It looks kinda Versailles and oriental combination interior and theme.. Very classy, totally different from those common Chinese restaurant interior with bold red and gold color setting. We were seated quite far behind from the entrance, I love it because it gives us more privacy rather than cramping us in between other bigger tables/groups who talk loudly..

Everything was ok but the first thing irked me was their menu. It was pretty worn out and dirty. There were blotches of oily dirt stains and patches of scotch tape on them.  The material were quite flimsy, I’m supposed it should be more prestige as their “atasness”. I guess it’s time for them to change..

We waited for our order…

The one and only item I wanted to eat the most, every time. The Infamous Custard Bun. They taste pretty different from other restaurant.. I guess maybe its their brand of margarine or butter used or maybe some special herbs or spices they added into the custard salty egg lava.. Still to my liking~ Oozing good lava custard.

Chun wanted to try this “special” dish which he was eying for quite some time. His favorite scallop and something out of norm he said. Deep Fried Yam Puff with Scallop in Portuguese Sauce. The scallop was undeniably huge..

It was a pretty satisfying breakfast but the wait made us expect more than this.. I wish it was more than just normal dim sum..

That’s all the dim sum feasting about.. Taaa~


love, xoxo
