My wife and I were invited to sample a preview of what Si Chuan Dou Hua have to offer and below is some of the dim sum dishes that you can expect during the feast:
Pan-fried Pancake with Chicken Floss
Physically it looks like our local Nyonya kuih, Ondeh-Ondeh. Fried, small in size and topped with sesame seeds. But if you are expecting it to taste like one, then you’ll be amazingly surprised. This dimsum is filled with the savoury filling of finely made chicken floss. It was perfectly fried and not greasy at all. Highly recommended for those who loves fries food items.
Steamed Chives Dumpling comes with beautifully thin translucent skin. You may dip this into some spicy sauce but it is good to have on it’s own. Juicy and bursting with flavours.
Minced Chicken Dumpling Wrapped in Banana Leaf
This item is made from glutinous rice flour and filled generously with minced chicken. A tad chewy and quite challenging to eat for me but it’s simply delicious and flavourful and I wish I could have seconds.
Minced Chicken Dumpling in Chili Oil may look intimidating to some, but don’t let the flaming red chilli oil scares you. It is not as spicy as it looks and such a divine thing to have. But those with sensitive tongue will find having a piece of this can be quite a tongue numbing experience. The chilli oil gives you quite an aftertaste, but the problem will go away if you wash it down with the accompanying Chinese tea.
Pan Fried Carrot Cake with Dried Scallop
With XO sauce on top, this humble dimsum dish is simply irresistible. It reminds me of home and the good old times when I was still growing up where these are served for tea. Definitely approve this piece. A must try item if you ask me.
Steamed Celery Dumpling with Conpoy
Easily voted the most striking dimsum that we had that day. The colourings comes from carrot juice and have quite a unique taste to it.
Pan fried Minced Chicken Dumpling with Chives. The dumplings are served with a thin layer of flour batter that is lightly fried to form a beautiful crusty pancake.
Taken with a special ginger sauce, these dumpling proves to be a very interesting dish on the palate. It has a unique taste and texture.
Boiled Mince Chicken with Hot and Sour Sauce may not look so appealing in comparison to other beautifully crafted dimsum, but never judge a dish by it’s presentation. My fussy eater son had five piece of these and that is more than enough to say how good the dish was.
Steamed Glutinous Rice with Dried Shrimp Wrapped With Yam was a tad sweet and chewy, but I enjoyed these very much.
Braised Eggplant with Garlic and Chili Sauce is practically begging for a bowl of rice to accompany it. The eggplant was fresh, succulent and fully absorbs the chilli sauce flavours.
French Beans with Minced Garlic. I’m not a fan of beans of any variants but sampled these nevertheless. Like the eggplant dish, this would go very well with a howl of piping hot white rice too.
Handmade noodles in Sichuan Chili Oil.The item where Chef Peng demonstrated the slicing process. Spicy and numbing, not for the faint hearted. Love this to bits.
Si Chuan Dan Dan Noodles is one of the dimsum item that Chef Peng taught us how to make in the dimsum masterclass earlier. Absolutely fine in texture and taste. Mildly spicy, but not anything I can’t handle.
Steamed Glutinous Rice Ball with Purple Sweet Potato Paste was one of our dessert. Beautifully crafted and sweetly wonderful on the palate too. The purple sweet potato paste filling was not overwhelmingly sweet either. I definitely approve.
Home Made Fine Bean Curd with Wolfberry
A bowl of it is definitely not enough. The beancurd topped with wolfberry and sugar syrup is fine and silkily smooth. Wish I could go for another bowl but ruefully, my tummy was already begging for a rest after all the feasting that I have done on the dimsums.
We were also given a fortune cookie each before we ended out meal, and here is what mine says. 😉
