Dim sum at Victor’s Kitchen
Posted February 14, 2010on:
Victor’s Kitchen is a small dim sum eatery in Sunshine Plaza, which is probably the only place in that area of town that you can really get dim sum.
It was set up by Victor (obviously) who came from Hong Kong, and brings the HK style of dim sum to our shores. Most of the dim sum is pretty standard but there are some dishes which are prepared in the HK way, like the milk tea or the chicken rice.
Now I won’t say that the dim sum here is fantastic or cheap, but if you need your dim sum fix when you’re near Middle Road, it’s Victor’s Kitchen!
Chilled Hong Kong milk tea. You won’t find this style of milk tea in Singapore, it’s chilled by ice in a bowl which prevents the milk tea from being diluted as the ice melts.
Siew mai & har gau, the stalwarts of dim sum! Very standard in taste.
Phoenix porridge, basically chicken and century egg.
Prawn rolls. First time trying but I quite like it.
Sunshine Plaza also boasts a shop that bake really nice chicken pies, as was brought to my attention by Howard the proprietator of the SSB. So I just had to try one, and I must say they are pretty good!
