So the other day when I was booking in back to camp my family got reminded about how long ago we had our last dimsum date, and since it was quite some time back we decided why not just head to Peach Garden Noodle House because it was the nearest dimsum place to us.
All sounded like a good idea so we proceeded ordering our dishes.
The Siew Mai looked the part, but besides having fresh prawns it lacked taste. The flavour of pork was evident but bland, and same goes along with every other ingredient that came along with it.
Shrimp Dumplings had a translucent skin, which looked a tad too transparent. The skin was far too thin and ended up sticking together which made it rather hard to separate. Shrimps were again succulent and fresh, but seemingly unable to save the dish.
(BBQ Pork Bun)
BBQ Pork Bun was another disappointment looming; thick skin and little filling. Enough said.
(Steamed Custard Lava Bun)
Every time when we visit a dimsum place that serves Steamed Custard Lava Bun, we look forward for the bursting goodness that oozes out from the bun. The Steamed Custard Lava Bun had the same sin that marred the BBQ Pork Bun, which greatly disappointed us further.
(Porridge with Pork Balls)
Porridge with Pork Balls had some crackers in it much to our surprise, which gave the smooth porridge another dimension of texture. The pork balls also had a bouncy texture and were rather tacky. Much like everything else though the porridge had its fair share of problems, such as being served lukewarm and just tasted bland.
For the record, I really wanted to like/love Peach Garden, however there are just too many wrongs that is happening here with food quality. This is made worse with its high pricing which is comparable to restaurants that serve impressionable dimsum. There is a lot to do for Peach Garden to climb up the ladder, and I do hope that things would turn for the better for them.
