Victor’s Kitchen

with one comment

Simple decor with no elaborate design or menu, Victor’s Kitchen prides itself on authentic, tasty dim sum. Even at 7pm, the place was bustling with life. Servers were walking around, dishing out orders of piping hot dim sum, as a consistent queue formed outside the shop. On the walls of the shop were posters promoting their signature Golden Egg Yolk Lava Bun and indeed on every table, there was at least 1 serving  – testimonial of the popularity of the Golden Egg Yolk Lava Bun.

The joy of eating the Golden Egg Yolk Lava Bun ($4) started from the excitement when we broke apart the soft, pillowy dough to reveal a yellow, creamy fluid centre. Next, we would be welcomed by the aroma of the piping hot salty custard. While we enjoyed the process of sipping up the savoury custard, we realized that the fillings were rather oily and the sight of the layer of golden oil was a slight turn-off.

Victor’s King Prawn Dumpling ($4.50) didn’t turn out that huge after all. However, every prawn dumpling was generously packed with succulent, fresh and juicy prawns in a soft and thin skin. The prawn dumplings were pretty average, nothing extraordinary, but still a delightful dish.

The Scallop, Sausage Carrot Cake with XO Sauce ($4) looked rather interesting and was not something commonly found in other dim sum places. The sauce resembled more of the light soya sauce accompanying rice rolls (chee cheong fun) and was lacking in XO taste. The scallops and sausages did not stand out in this carrot cake. We did bite into little bits of sausages and strands of scallops. However, the bulk of the taste came from the light soya sauce. Texture wise, the carrot cake had a texture almost similar to chwee kueh – soft, smooth and almost like baby food.
