Dim sum brunch

Dim sum meals are fun, adventurous and can be economical, depending on who does the ordering. You get to order as much or as little as you want, and pay for the food accordingly. I love the idea of dim sum weekends, where loved ones gather around the round table and tuck into baskets of freshly steamed dumplings.

Then there’s the other dim sum cart filled with fried delights such as prawn dumplings, yam puffs, fried carrot cake…the whole works.

At West Lake Garden Chinese Restaurant, you get to choose from more than 100 items, rotated on a daily basis. On weekends, expect to see about 30-40 items on the menu, from traditional favourites to innovative creations from Dim Sum Master Chef Low.


Tri-coloured dumpling

I liked the tri-colour dumpling, a twist to the usual har gau where it comes topped with minced carrot, black fungus and coriander. The basic siew mai and har gau were pretty decent – larger in size and generously filled.

Another feature at West Lake Garden is the selection of Teochew dishes available at the live cooking station. I sampled the lamb kut teh (their version of bak kut teh), mixed vege (chai boey) and yeong sam pou (stuffed chilli, eggplant, beancurd and ladies finger). I enjoyed the mixed vege best.

Lamb Kut Teh

Lamb Kut Teh had a sweeter flavour and stronger meat aroma. If you’re a die-hard bak kut teh fan, you wouldn’t take to this. That aside, it was actually quite a decent soup. While West Lake Garden is a Cantonese restaurant, the chef decided on Teochew claypot dishes to give diners something different.

Carrot cake


Fried seafood wantan

The Teochew cuisine is milder in flavour, meant to be savoured with porridge. As such, it is a good balance to the dim sum. I also enjoyed the fried beef hor fun– well flavoured with tender beef slices.

Red bean and sago


White fungus with longan

For dessert, you get a selection of tong sui; white fungus with longan, tong sui with aloe vera, red bean with sago and sweet potato with ginseng. My favourite was the tong sui with aloe vera – light and refreshing to offset the food.
