ShenZhen09 Day 3 Brunch: Dim Sum @ 广食访
Continue from ShenZhen09 Day 2 Dinner: 面点王@Book City
On the third day of my stay, finally get to have dim sum. I have been craving for dim sum since the weeks and the months before coming to Shen Zhen. This dim sum place is quite far away from where housing area I stayed. Sis and I walked for about 30 mins to this restaurant called 广食访。Sorry for no pics on this building as it was raining cat and dog all day. I wasn’t able to capture photos with umbrella and handbags on.
This place was quite a full house even though it was already 12 noon. I learnt that a lot of people travelled from Hong Kong to Shen Zhen during the weekend — to shop, to dine, to Yum Cha and even buying vege and stuff from the market! Sis said it is super convenient for them to travel up by the metro — pass border, buy tickets, step into the metro and zooooom. And reach within 30 mins.
Back to 广食访, the service was rather slow and bad. Not enough staff and too many customers I guess. Do hope they will improve.
The Portuguese egg tarts that served were silky smooth in the egg centre and the puff pastry shells were crispy. Oh yum, I had not have such a good Portuguese’s egg tarts. Please don’t mention those from the kings, gonna delete it from my list. Of course, this is still not the best Portuguese egg tarts I had in Shen Zhen. There is another one I wish to intro on my next post which can simply melts ones heart.
糯米鸡 glutinous rice that served piping hot. They were wrapped with the big piece of lotus leaves before sending off to steam. The glutinous rice was real soft and filled with the scent of lotus leaves.
A bowl of hot porridge that warm my tummy in this cold weather. Speaking of weather, the weather was unstable although it was already summer. Cold and rainy all day. Sigh… which was quite inconvenient for sightseeing
Stirred fried Lo Bak Gou in XO sauce which was full with wok hei. Hmmm, I still find the one from canton-i is the best.
韭菜饺 Jiu-Cai-Jiao which is another must-order item. It was actually the dumplings that very much similar to the Japanese Gyoza. Difference: the centre core which was filled up with plentiful of leek and minced meat in Jiu-Cai-Jiao and wrapped up prettily into the shape required.
Last but not least, a plate of vege — the required fibres for body.
