Shark Fin House (#2)

Because this is #2, you can read #1 HERE where Mouse was NOT present...when two greedy people went off WITHOUT me (okay I was in Malaysia but still).

Anyway! We (yes two of us are writing now!! YAY!!) are going to make this more of a picture post since there are like 375737473 photos to be posted. :D By the way, all the brackets at the back of food is Cantonese! Hah! We speak Canto! At least I do.

First off! I present Shark Fin from the outside and really cool new Shark Fin chopsticks!!


We arrived at 11am, when Shark Fin just opened. But look at the queue!

Cool chopsticks huh?

NOW FOOD.

Prawn Dumplings (Har Kau) - MY FAVOURITE!!!

Teo Chew Dumplings (Chiu Zhou Fun Gor) - I didn't eat this, San thinks it's REALLY yummy.

Fried Pan-Ball (Jeen Dui) - AKA BOMBS to JK.

Chinese Chive Dumpling (Gao Choi Kao)

Mixed Veggie Wrapped in Bean Curd Skin (Seen Chok Guen)

The Non-Veggie Seen Chok Guen

Savoury Minced Pork Dumplings (Ham Sui Kok)

Yam Dumplings (Wu Kok)

Squid Tentacles (Sotong - not exactly Canto but hey)

Prawn Salad (Ha Sa Lad)

MM says by looking at this, she feels like having a bite at it =D

Paper-Wrapped Prawns (Zee Bao Ha) - MOUSE LOVE.

Fried Sticky Rice (Sang Chao Loh Mai Fan) - The Girls' LOVE.

Scallop Rice Noodles (Tai Jee Cheong Fun)

yum!

Fish Cake Tofu

Durian Tart (Lao Leen Tat) - I hate it but JK was smelling it like it's...I dunno.

Durian tarts, San likes.

Pork Bun (Char Siew Pau) - Greedy people ate before we can take a photo.

Pork Pastry (Char Siew Sou) - Alf's fav.

Almond Jelly

Rockmelon Sago

That's all folks! We're off to par-tay @ Unknown Location!! Byeeee!

The yumcha looks really good!

Btw, thanks for romanizing the chinese names of the dishes.. I'm hopeless in naming the food I want.

I usually end up pointing at it (if it's in the cart) and/or describe how the dish looks like, much to the confusion/annoyance of the waitresses...

Hi ginger,

It cost about $20 per person and there was 5 of us. :D

Hi shopaholic,

Yup, Shark Fin is one of our favourite places for yum cha! And you're welcome - it's more helpful when you know the Chinese name, hehe. I didn't know the names of the more complicated stuff until after a few rounds anyway. :)
