Victor's Kitchen

There used to be snaky queues lining up outside Victor's Kitchen even before its operation hours but during my recent visit , there was a signage placed in front of shop asking diners not to queue up and it was by the building management.

The internal of Victor's Kitchen is rather run down and cramped with chipboard foreceiling.

Internal
 As the tables were all lined up in rows leaving a middle walkway, the dining area were rather cramped if you were to order different kinds of Dim Sum. However such squeezy area gave us a feel on how situation is like in Char Chang Ting of Hong Kong.

Interestingly prepared with a bowl of ice outside the cooling HK Summer Beverages, it did remind us of the authenticity of such fare.

Chicken Porridge was not too thick and not too watery. Simply love its texture and the sweetness. Also, century egg with chicken meat is delicious.

Phoneix Porridge - $4.50
 I'm still in search of the better Siew Mai. Though these are good, but not to die for.

Tasty Queen Size Siew Mai - $4.50
 A bite of the "Q" chewiness. These prawns were succulent.

Teo Chew Style Steam Dumpling - $4.50
The XO Carrot cake is so soft till i thought I'm eating some gluely paste until I confirmed that it is their signature carrot cake. This is also one of the shop's recommendation.

XO Scallop, Sausage Carrot Cake with XO Sauce - $4.50
 One of the staples that we wont skip during any Dim Sum Meal. The signature dish - Golden Egg Yolk Lava Bun. Even before you bite on it, the fillings will ooze out once you tear away its paper at the bottom. Though oily and creamy, it still tastes good in the overall.

Golden Egg Yolk Lava Bun (3 Pcs Per Set) - $4.50
 Sauce is generous on the plate of Char Siew Cheong Fun. Its silky translucent thin layer skin simply wrapped the chopped pieces of char siew meat well.

 To enhance some of the Dim Sum taste, it is good to have dab on some chilli.

Through this return visit, I felt that Victor's Kitchen had lost its charm somehow, she is no longer my best and economical choice of Dim Sum that will come straight into my mind.
