Dim Sum @ Jia Wei - Part II

3rd Dec 09

Peking duck, usually served in a combination of roast duck skin, hoi sin sauce and spring onion wrapped in pancake. The duck meat will be used to create another dish like fried noodles or stir fry with ginger and spring onion. We ordered half a duck which was more than enough for the 5 of us.

Peking Duck

The Peking duck skin was very good, still maintain it's crisp and was very tasty too. Though I prefer the authentic type using steam pancake instead of crepes but this was pretty well done.

Deep Fried Lobster Paste Roll

Surprise to find cheese in the filling instead of lobsters paste. I think the cheese was too overpowering and I would definitely mistook it as cheese roll rather than lobster roll.

Fried Mango Prawn Roll

This was not bad.

Chinese Spinach in Herbal soup w/Eggs

Thumb up for this, usually chicken stock was used but they used herbal stock instead which I think was rather nice.

Noodles w/Shredded Peking Duck

The noodle was quite nice but we were too full to finish it.
Steamed Custard Bun

Expecting to see flowing sandy custard but to our disappointment it didn't and also taste very ordinary like normal custard bun.

Overall, we did enjoy our meal though there were some hits and misses. I like the peaceful and elegant ambience. Also, service is good too. Probably I has very high expectation on dim sum so I think they did better on dishes than dim sum.
