My predilection for small meals, chit-chat and lots of tea drinking makes dimsum the perfect option, come weekends.
And this predilection is usually quickly quenched with a trip to Celestial Court.
Double Boiled Fresh Ginseng with Abalone and Charcoal Chicken .. exquisite!
They do after all serve some of the best, halal, dimsum in town.
Gold laced Har Gao (prawns) – luxuriously crunchy and bursting with seafood aroma
With endless creative options, the restaurant offers diners a great selection of classics as well as innovative fusion favourites. In the end, the dimsum experience at Celestial court is usually more than the simple sum of its parts. And that’s why I like it so much.
Pleasing to the eye, as well as the gut.
Crystal Spinach Dumplings with Prawn and Scallop topped with crab meat & Caviar.. super decadent!
Whatever it is, Dimsum Chef Ken Lieu, never fails to tantalize my taste buds. Whether it is the simplest of Cantonese cuisine, using a harmony of ingredients and the freshest produce, or a gourmet of Cantonese delights with seasonal delicacies, one can look forward to a completely divine meal!
The Deep Fried Soon Hock, River Prawns, Seafood Grouper Dumpling with Century Egg, Asparagus Served with XO Sauce and Pumpkin Puree and Avocado prawn rolls were also exquisite treats…
Good old-fashioned favourites should not be missed – the Signature Mini Abalone “Siew Mai”, wu gok (taro dumplings), Siew Bao and Steamed Beef Ball with Bean Curd Skin are all great options where Chef Ken does not compromise on the quality of ingredients.
I don’t know about you but I find Fried Radish Cake, Prawn and Banana Roll Served with Wasabi-Mayo and anything that has ‘scallop’ in it irresistible and a must order over dimsum;)
And well, the strength of Celestial Court’s dimsum undeniably comes from its versatility. There’s just so many delectable baskets to choose from. You’ll end up spending a good 3 hours over lunch, just like we did -with tons of tea and chit-chat thrown in too, of course. Just like how any good dimsum session should be. Thus pacifying my dimsum predilection once more.
