The backup

Pin It

The Man in White T-shirt pinged and asked whether we wanted to join them for dim sum, which is something we haven't done in a while.  Unfortunately it was too late for us to grab a table at Seventh Son (家全七福), so we made do with Fook Lam Moon (福臨門).  I have only been back here once since a particularly poor dinner 3 years ago, but I guess dim sum would be OK...

Crispy pork belly (脆皮燒腩仔) - OK, so it was at least at the right serving temperature today... but it still tasted like it's been reheated since there was plenty of fat that had soaked into the crunchy crackling.

Steamed rice flour rolls with mixed vegetables (羅漢齋腸粉)

Steamed prawn dumplings with bamboo shoots (har gau, 筍尖鮮蝦餃)

Steamed chicken feet (豉汁蒸鳳爪)

Pan fried cured meat and radish cake (香煎蘿蔔糕) - quality is still good.  I do buy it every year to take home to mom...

Beef and glass vermicelli with satay sauce in clay pot (沙爹牛肉粉絲煲) - in all the times I've been here I've never had this dish... In fact I never even knew it was on the menu.  Pretty good la...

Pan-fried cuttlefish patties with corn (金粟墨魚餅) - always a good call, since I love the flavors and textures of cuttlefish balls, and the sweet corn kernels add something extra.

Steamed pork dumplings with crab eggs (siu mai, 蟹籽蒸燒賣)

Deep fried prawn and chicken spring rolls (雞絲蝦春卷) - always one of my favorite items here, and still very good in spite of the darker-than-usual color.

Stir-fried kailan with ginger sauce (薑汁炒芥蘭)

It's great to catch up with good friends, although I was a little surprised that we chose not to drink... Well, I'll be drinking with them soon enough!
