Even the signboards to the toilet were so cute!

But the toilet inside is still the same....
They should have done something about it... lol

So, we have ordered the above items....

 photo 20140818_141416_zpsdb5675de.jpg
Steam Pork Dumplings, $5

While ordering, i wasn't looking at the chinese words.... so unknowingly i ordered Siew Mai! wahahhaha
Nothing really special about the siew mai... its quite meaty though.... I prefer still prefer the siew mai sold at my school, PSB!

Bean curd skin roll, $4.50

Taste pretty much normal too. Quite crispy... with prawn fillings inside...

BBQ combo rice (chosen char siew and roasted duck), $8.80

Portion was not as big as what we saw our neighbour beside was having. So was a bit disappointed.
The rice was just plain white rice. Char siew was lean.... so for plpl who like fatty ones... might not like it...
It was slightly dry too. As for the roasted duck, it was quite juicy... but my hubby and I prefer crispy skin...
Oh, and it came along with a citrus dip to dip with the duck.... taste quite not bad.

Wonton soup noodle, $6.80

The wontons were quite succulent. The noodles and soup was pretty the hk style....
Nothing fancy.

HK style milk tea, $2.80

 photo 20140818_142141_zpsc74b6390.jpg
French toast HK style, $3.00

Very sweet and buttery... probably.. i added too much maple syrup...

Overall, the place was pretty hk style.... The food were served pretty fast... so your table will be filled with all the dishes very fast. But they cleared the dishes very fast too. Pretty much a HK way of working... everything FAST FAST FAST... order fast, eat fast, leave fast pls.
Pricing wise, affordable.

My hubby and I are not really a fan of HK food.... So, we find the food pretty so so too... Dont really worth queueing la...
I would still visit this restaurant, when i'm having cravings for dim sums and when there's no queue...
since I'm staying so near to Jurong point!

Dim sums from Tim ho wan and East Ocean were pretty not bad too. I will blog on East Ocean next time round!
