Yan Ting’s divine dim sum and exquisite dishes were mind-blowing; we thoroughly enjoyed the food as well as the grandeur ambiance. I would definitely return again as I would like to treat my parents (living overseas) to this little luxury.
In order to try a wider variety of dishes, I suggest requesting for smaller portions. For my review on Yan Ting part one, click here. Edit 03/02/2014: Do check out my blog post on Yan Ting Weekend Brunch Revisited too 🙂
Each diner is only served 1 bowl of abalone soup and one portion of lobster, which can be prepared in 3 different styles. All 3 methods of preparation were fantastic.
Whenever there is salted egg yolk bun, I would surely order it. Its my favorite dim sum, so much so that my husband proposed to me with a salted egg yolk bun. View the proposal here: My memorable marriage proposal
Combination barbeque platter consisting of barbequed pork, soya sauce chicken, crispy roasted pork and roasted duck. Our favorite was the crispy roasted pork, the skin was crackling while the meat melts in the mouth. The limited fat content is great for health conscious folks.
Deep fried prawns with mayonnaise followed by deep fried prawns coated with crispy cereal. The prawns were positively large, juicy and fresh. The crispy cereal was a tad too spicy for me, but just right for hubby who has a penchant for spicy foods.Deep fried live Soon Hook was cooked to perfection with no hint of fishiness.
Desserts desserts desserts! We had another stomach for 5 different varieties.
First up, crispy sesame ball filled with malt balls chocolate. An interesting rendition of the usual sesame ball filled with oh-so-boring red bean paste. Sink your teeth into textured sesame pastry, and be surprised by a hard layer of chocolate. Bite in further and let warm chocolate liquid flow!
Mini egg tarts were simply DIVINE. Most places served their egg tarts either at room temperature or slightly warm, but Yan Ting’s egg tarts were piping hot, fresh out of the oven. This is the first time I have come across egg tarts that melt in the mouth. Second serving please!
Happy and satisfied :). Yan Ting has truly the best dim sum in Singapore (check out my review on the a la carte dim sum menu here) The last time I had such fantastic(and cute cartoon designed) dim sum was in Hong Kong Disneyland Crystal Lotus Character Dim Sum; view my review here.
