Sliced Pork with Garlic Sauce ($8)

I always get muddled how is this even yumcha but I cannot resist ordering this wherever I am. Sliced pork belly with garlic sauce, slurp! Someone should consider making this a mains than an appetizer.

Japanese Cucumber marinated with Garlic ($5)




I usually find this too expensive for the portion, pork belly over this anytime!

Steamed Juicy Meat Bun ‘Xiao Long Bao’ ($5.80)


There are yardsticks of a good Xiao long bao - one that withstands the test of chopstick abuse. Clearly this was too flimsy and the skin just gave way too early.

Steamed Pork Rib with Black Bean Sauce ($5.30)


I found these too oily and fatty.

Pan-fried Turnip Cake ($4.80)

Mini Piglet BBQ Bun ($5.80)


Cute dimsum with decently tasting char siew filling.

Steamed Shrimp Dumpling ‘Har Gao’ ($5.80)

Steamed Prawn Rice Roll ‘Cheong Fun’ ($6.80)


Somehow I prefer the one with fried dough fritters though the rice roll skin did not cut it for me.

Deep-fried Beancurd Skin Roll with Fresh Prawn ($4.80)


This is my dimsum staple and generally I have not had a bad one.

Steamed Pork Dumpling ‘Siew Mai’ ($5.80)

Black Swan (Durian Pastry) ($5.80)



I'm not sure what I was sold on, was it the swan pastry or durian filling.

Light, flaky and a pretty decent durian dessert.

Duo Combination BBQ Meat Rice ($10.80)



There's egg fried rice under the canopy of roast meats, a good respite from the table of dimsum!

Shrimp Dumpling with Noodle Soup ($8)

If the dry carbo options does not appeal, noodles may just do the job.




It was a reasonably decent dimsum meal at Tung Lok Tea House, the casual vibes makes it very welcoming and prices are not too high too.
