Dim Sum Brunch at Tung Lok Seafood
Sigh. Still using point-and-shoot photos. Hubby and I had some Tunglok vouchers to spend but were too lazy to go downtown, so we hopped to the nearby Tung Lok Seafood at East Coast Parkway. We have been here before once but this time, we did not want the buffet.
Clear soup with bits of scallop, prawn, mushroom and fish. Hubby liked this but I found it rather bland at first. Grows on you though. Piping hot, clear and comforting broth.
This is one of their signature dishes but it failed to impress much. The batter is a bit too floury, and the mayo too cloying. We've had better at Cherry Garden.
I dissected these and found more prawn than scallop. In fact, I had to look very hard for the scallop bits, they're almost non-existent!
Not bad even if a teensy bit mushy. Ample ingredients inside, but the whole roll is quite small.
Reasonably well done. Thin translucent steamed rice flour skin and lots of char siew.
Plump, juicy shrimp dumplings, each with about two prawns inside.
Very soft radish cake, with strips of actual radish discernible within. These added sweetness to the bland mesh.
Must have some greens, although these aren't terribly healthy, being deep-fried and all. Tasty though.
The ultimate stomach filler - fried rice! This was a bit bland though but was good with the savoury long beans. Could not finish the very large portion, so we doggybagged this.
This place can get a bit pricey. Lots of people come here in big groups for their value-for-money dim sum buffets (two kinds, one with a la carte seafood items). Even on a weekday, it was easily half full for lunch.
