大肉包

大肉包

The 大肉包 ($1.20) from 源记手工包点 Yuan Ji Handmade Tim Sum was dinstinctively different from those sold at coffee shops. Rather than a minced meaty centre, Yuan Ji’s 大肉包 (pork) consisted of thick, juicy and succulent chunks of pork meat. The chunks of pork were well-flavoured and had thoroughly absorbed the essence of the sauce/stew. It was literally eating a stewed pork chop encased in a soft bun skin.

The 虾饺 Har Gow (3 for $1.80) were disappointing. The fillings contained a much larger proportion of meat, rather than prawns. The entire prawn dumpling exuded a strong pork smell and taste, which non pork lovers will definitely dislike. However, one commendable thing was the dumpling skin. It was soft, thin, and not starchy.
