Jia He – Farrer Park

At Jia He you have to make a reservation for their Dim Sum Brunch way in advance. For us, it was 4 weeks. Is it worth it?

Of course I always start with Har Gow and Siew Mai. These were pretty decent along with Buttefly Pea Mushroom Dumplings and Bak Kut Teh Xiao Long Bao. The Dumplings were so-so while the Xiao Long Bao had the nice broth inside. The Chicken Feet was pretty good too.

Char Siew Bao and Custard Bao were ok, while the Hot and Sour Soup was pretty good. The Shark Fin Soup was tasty as well.

Sweet and Sour Pork was pretty spot on, the Salted Egg Fried Prawn was crispy and fresh, Scallop and Broccoli was classically done and the XO Carrot Cake was hot and fresh.

Milk Fritters, Bean Curd Skin with Seaweed, Kurobota Pork Yam Dumpling, Prawn Roll with Mango and Fried Prawn Dumplings were all fresh and not too oily for fried dishes.

The Egg Tarts were also pretty well executed and the other desserts of Osmanthus Jelly, Sea Coconut and Jelly Royal Fruit Cocktail were refreshing.

Definitely good, and if you can get the reservation, give it a go!
