A new-wave Chinatown café with a name that promises memorable dim sum, this ‘minimal, white, very white’ offering is a mixed bag, although it’s always fun for groups. Drop by at lunchtime and you won’t go far wrong – especially if you keep to the long menu of dependably fresh dumplings and other morsels. Don’t miss the delicate, hard-to-master house special of siu long bao, served hot with a splash of vinegar; otherwise, pick from the likes of pork dumplings with crab roe, turnip puff pastries, prawn cheung-fun or cold chicken soaked in Shaoxin wine. Come the evening, the menu moves into more conventional territory, offering stir-fries, sizzlers, hotpots and all manner of one-plate rice and noodle dishes. Spicy beef tendon, fresh crab congee and duck-leg soup have all been given the nod. Related to Leong’s Legend and Empress of Sichuan.
