Shi Wei Xian Hong Kong Tim Sum

This cheap and good Tim Sum place is known for its operating hours for they are just opened 2 days a week. They are opened only during Saturdays and Sundays in one corner of the coffeeshop.

Menu was rather straight forward and items are mostly illustrated on their signboard. With a limitation of 26 items on the Tim Sum Menu, its already good enough for the folks to get busy in the kitchen.

Ordering Chit

Yuan Yang Chee Cheong Fun is a best of both world when one cant decide to choose between Char Siu or Prawns. These smooth & warm sheets of rice roll was thin and had the fillings encased. The sauce that based the dish was tasty.

I'm quite impressed by the 3 small cakes of carrot cake that were pan fried and came with bite chunks within. The external layer had a tad crisp with charred edges and the bite texture was soft.

Porridge is of small portion of and the texture consistency was perfect. The taste fits me.

The Crab Meat Siew Mai did not have any distinguishable taste nor pieces of crab meat within. Nonetheless, its texture was succulent, packed of meat and not very greasy

The Char Siew Bun was fluffy and soft in its skin with sweet tasty chopped meat fillings.

I overheard some angry commotions in the kitchen between the counterparts. I begin to wonder if this is the reason behind the short operating hours? 

In conclusion, their Dim Sum fares above the average one for the freshness and taste.
