What's your favourite dim sum? For me, it has to be liushabao (流沙饱 aka Lava Bun or salted egg yolk custard bun). And we typically can judge the standard of the restaurant's dim sum from the quality of liushabao because this is one difficult recipe to master - in order to achieve the right consistency and flow of the filling. The liushabao has certainly created a deep impression on me. It is far better than those from other renown chinese restaurants serving dim sum.
If you're looking for a place for afternoon tea / dim sum, consider going to Bosses. There are close to 50 items on their menu and they offer 30% off for their dim for orders between 2.30pm and 5pm. Here's a list of what I like in order of my preference.
Signature Custard Lava Bun - soft bun skin filling with warm salted egg yolk custard
Fish Skin - Fresh and Crispy (Highly Recommended)
Ace Durian Mochi - Filled with D24 durian. It is beat eaten when chilled (Highly Recommended)
Famous Chilli Crab Tart - Bite-size crab meat that's fresh and springy.
Har Gow (Prawn Dumpling) - Fresh prawn dumpling in 3 different coloured skin.
Pan-fried Carrot Cake with XO Sauce - Not bad, not bad.
Crispy Sesame Mango Prawn Salad Roll
Shanghai Xiao Long Bao - Minced pork steamed bun. There are better ones than these.
Premium Fish Maw steamed dumpling - I am not a fan of fish maw, that explains why it is on my low priority list.
Here's the full menu for the dim sum. Prices range from $4.50 to $9.50 before taxes. I will be back for more!
