Here’s the low-down on the latest action-
The Beef: Admittedly we arrived a bit late for lunch (2pm), but there were at least 3 items we ordered that were no longer available. Not a great initial impression.
Food was mediocre, but I found the flavor pairing to be very weird and not traditionally Cantonese as I know it. The Pan Fried Crystal Shrimp was pretty much flavorless (it’s supposed to be a mild dish but not like this). What was even more odd was the pairing of red bean (savory) next to it, which did not complement the shrimp at all. On the other side of the flavor spectrum, the Eggplant with Minced Pork in XO Sauce tasted more Sichuan, topped with red chili and fermented soybeans – and overly salted. Super thirsty afterwards.
Since they ran out of roast duck and crispy pork, we went with char siu and goose. Decent, but nothing to write home (or here) about. Same for other dim sum dishes.
Service was friendly and apologetic but unorderly and frazzled. Not a horrible experience. It did the job of filling our bellies after lots of walking and sightseeing, but would not go back.
The Gang: A few tourists here and there on the weekend, mostly Chinese. Probably a bit more of the work crowd on weekdays.
The Motive: Decent food and value for a quick (but fancier than food court) bite if you’re touristing around the area.
The Damage: 300rmb for a 4-person lunch.
The Down n’ Dirty: Within the “mall”, not too far from the restaurant.
