Lunch Out! Dim Sum at Pine Court

Just received a free eat@Meritus card with compliments from OCBC yesterday!

So, I brought my mum to Pine Court at Meritus Mandarin for a yummy dim sum lunch 🙂

Meritus Mandarin is currently undergoing renovation, so its main entrance is temporarily shifted and we had to walk a longer distance after shopping at Robinsons’ Centrepoint.

While walking along the pavement outside Meritus Mandarin, we spotted lots of bird shit like these.

I know it spoils one’s appetite starting a food post with a picture like that. But, I was simply peeved seeing these white spots on the pavement…

Yucks! Aren’t NEA /STB / LTA going to something about it? What is the use of spending so much money to improve the pavements when the tourists see this along Orchard Road? Sigh… it must be the doing of those black crows which used to roost at Somerset area! Now that the crows are gone, their bird shit is still stuck on the pavement.

*tsk tsk tsk*

I will report this to NEA and see if the situation improves.

Now, back to the dim sum lunch! 😀

Appertizer - Duck Meat and Long Bean

This appertizer is FOC. Tasted savoury with sichuan vegetable taste. Pretty tasty.

There was a ala carte buffet dim sum lunch at S$19.80++ per person. We weren’t that hungry and decided just ala carte will do.

We like Pu’er. Costs S$4++ per person. But, their grade doesn’t taste as good as the ones we had at home.

Pumpkin Dumplings at S$5.40++ (3 pieces). Skin so transparent! 😀

Deer Meat in Taro at S$5.40 (3 pieces). Something interesting and unique.

Char Siew Pau at S$5.40 (3 pieces). Nice but not the best eaten. The filling has a different jam taste which I can’t figure out what.

Spicy Crabmeat bun at S$5.40 (3 pieces). Mum found this too spicy. I thought was okay except very little crab meat fillings. See the picture… looks pretty empty inside.

Mango Dessert at S$8++ each. That lime taste sorbet is sooooooooo sour! Mango with sago was good.

Custard Bun at S$3 each.

Look at the filling! It was delicious! I like this dessert best! 2 days ago, I tried making these and realised the recipe from the Internet was for custard bun (not the liquid filling version). Will post later about those buns I’ve made.

Total damage was S$33.55 after 50% discount! 😀
