Since its known for its legendary Dim Sum, I had to try it.

The Dim Sum menu is not as extensive and its seasonal, serving up the classics like Ha Gao, Siew Mai but with their own take on it.

The fried stuff like the Baked BBQ Pork bun was Great! Bun pastry was super soft and the texture of the cakey mixture on top was sweet and goes well with the salty char siew filling. The Han Sui Kok was great. It was not oily and when you bite into it, it did not feel greasy.

The Har Gao was great. It tasted like how all good Har Gao tastes like. But it did not blow my mind.

I loved the Siew Mai, the skin was different, the texture is soft and chewy, the scallops and prawns was big and fresh.

The Cheong Fun was nice and it reminds me of Tim Ho Wan’s Cheong Fun. It was good, skin was thin but not sure if this dish was 3 Star to me. It did not hit any high notes in me, to leave me wanting more.

I dint really like the Fen Guo, it was really just average and a waste of space.

Fen Guo, just average, nothing special.

The Cantonese style steamed fish was nice and soft but again, there was nothing special about it.

Then, we ordered the Crispy Chicken. For a good crispy chicken, you cannot see any fat on the skin and it must not be greasy and on top of that, the skin has to be very crispy and thin. I think by far, Fook Lam Moon still prepares the best crispy chicken.

But we can see the layer of fat still sitting on the skin, it is also a bit greasy and the skin was not as thin and crispy as it should be.  I will give this a pass.

Again, they excel in the fried items, so we ordered fried sesame custard ball for dessert and it was non greasy, very light. I will clean the plate.

But their mango sago pudding was just average again.

Overall, the food is very high quality and very good. Some dishes were a hit, some were just average. Service is great with an awesome view. I must say for a 3 Star Michelin, the prices of the Dim Sum were not expensive.

But i feel that its probably just two star instead of three star as I will expect the highest standard for a 3 Michelin Star Restaurant.
