As usual, we made a booking for yumcha at Shark Fin House since we did not want to risk or waste time waiting =) If you wanna have dimsums during the weekend, I will strongly recommend that you make bookings as its very hard to get a table if u do not.
These are what we've eaten:
Fried Sticky rice
Me n MM really like this dish! Its very fragrant. If you haven't tried it b4, just try it when u visit Shark Fin House next time =D
Savoury minced pork dumplings
This is one of my favourites as well. A MUST for me to order this when going for yumcha, regardless of which restaurant! But, MM don't share my love for this dimsum... well, more for me! LOL.
Baked oysters with cheese
By 1.30pm (We arrived at 12.30pm btw), we have only ordered 3 types of dimsums!! This is considered slow for us as we were pretty hungry and wish the trolleys could come to our table faster! Haha. OOoooOO yea, Chez joined us as well at around 1.45pm, which I felt happy as we could sample more food now *evil luff*
This is the first time I tried this dish at Shark Fin House. Its quite good as I like to eat lotus roots. Also, the sauce of it is yummy and it got a hint of spicyness in it. Not bad.
This is another one that Me n MM love and must order at our yumcha session! It is just so refreshing...
Shark Fin House's dimsums are quite good and has more variety of dimsums for you to choose as compared to Dragon Boat, Westlake or Red Emperor (all these 3 restaurants are in the city area too). For the price, SFH is slightly more expensive than Dragon Boats and Westlake, while is similar to Red Emperor and Taipan. Taipan Restaurant (in Doncaster) is another one that we enjoy =) . I also heard that other yumcha places like Plume Restaurant (Doncaster and High Point) or Ripples Seafood & BBQ Restaurant (in Malvern by Truffle) are not bad too. I must check them out when I got the chance...
