Cuisine- Dim Sum Extradonaire
Gagit has had Dim Sum many times at Royal China but on this visit Royal China has added a new menu of both unique and creative delights for Dim Sum junkies.Unfortunately Foodiechic was not here to join so I could not try all the new creations, but we will be back in August on our Olympic Trip.
As I read the new menu which showed the pictures of each dish ,I wanted everything but knew I had to be selective so I chose carefully and all dishes are shown above in all their splendor.The first dish ,Lobster Soup with Prawn Dumplings ,wow the richness of the broth and the delicateness of the dumpling were a perfect starter for more Dim Sum. The next dish was just a breathtaking sight of Dim Sum , Pork and Shrimp dumplings with Quail Egg on top,I savored each bite because it was even better than it looks.
After the delicate flavor of the last dish, I went for some spiceness ,and the Chili Pork Dumplings were just that and more.I now needed to savor my favorite Dim Sum,Xiao Long Bao or soup dumplings. The soup dumplings at Royal China are even better than those at Hakkasan, Miami and London and maybe even Shanghai ,the lightness and flavor of the wrap is a perfect nest for the broth and meat.
I am getting full and only can eat one more dish,it is a tough choice between the Chueng Fun Noodle with Peanut Sauce and the Foie Gras Roll.The noodle dish is my choice since it is not only a main but also dessert with the rich Peanut flavor.
Let the Truth Be Told, the Dim Sum I have had in China was great but the Dim Sum in London is not far behind and at Royal China with its new menu it will be tough to find much better and I know when I come back for the Foie Gras roll I will only confirm that.
