Expanding Dim Sum...

I knew about the existence of this place since more than a decade ago. If I'm not mistaken, me and my school mates had dined at this restaurant once in a while back then. More than a decade has passed and I think that it's time to visit the place again. :)

This place is pretty crowded, especially when the weekend approaches.
The group of us had finished the plate of peanuts within minutes,
while waiting for our orders to appear

They have quite a spread for fried Dim Sum items over here. Though
we only ended up placing an order for a few of them only.

'Prawn in Beancurd Skin'(鮮蝦腐皮卷)
Not too oily, and yet it still has this crunchy touch, which makes
this a pretty good Dim Sum. And most importantly not to forget about
the tasty prawns. :)

Alright, that's it. Time to move on to the steamed Dim Sum...

Left: 'Rice Roll with Char Siew'(叉燒腸粉)
Right: 'Rice Roll with Prawn'(鮮蝦腸粉)
The smooth texture would be a (+). Topped with a generous portion of
ingredients make this a pretty decent plate of 'Rice Roll'.

Time for the Dumpling look alike Dim Sum.
Left: 'Beancurd Skin Roll in Oyster Sauce'(耗油鮮竹卷)
Right: 'Prawn & Mushroom Dumpling'(翅餃)
Served warm, these succulent small bites can be delicious and
dangerous at the same time. The soup within these small bites
can burn your tongue easily.

Couldn't leave a Dim Sum place without giving the Buns a good try.
Top: 'Char Siew Bun'(叉燒包)
Bottom: 'Creamy Custard Bun'(流沙包)
Loved the 'Creamy Custard Bun'. Though it's not the best but
wrapped around the thick savory sweet lava would be the fluffy
Pandan skin, which makes it a pretty good combination.

'Fragrant Rice with Chicken'(糯米雞)
If you really want to save a bit, you can always go for 1 or 2 of the
rice or congee dishes that they have listed on the menu. And this
would be one of the better options. :)

'Yam Cake'(芋頭糕)
Frankly speaking, I think that this would be the best item that was
listed on their menu. Covered with a great amount of shrimps and
spring onions, this is a pretty good deal. Faced it, I'm madly in
love with this dish. As far as I know, this would be one of the best
'Yam Cake' in my area. As I took a bite off the 'Yam Cake', there's
an immediate outburst of the fragrance of 'Yam' inside my mouth. On
top of that, the chewy sensation would be another (+).

The above would give you a better idea of the dishes that they are
offering over here.

The name of this restaurant would be 'Tak Po'(德宝).
It's located along 'Smith Street', which is also located opposite
'Chinatown Complex Food Centre'.

Opening Hours:
  • 07:00 - 22:30 Daily
