Dim Sum lovers will be rejoice to know that Peach Garden at Thomsom Plaza has brought back its popular Weekend Dim Sum Buffet. When I visited the restaurant a couple of weeks ago, it was almost fully. I was advised to make a reservation if I would like to come back again for their dim sum. The restaurant was really packed.
Steamed Dim Sum 3/5
The restaurant offers a variety of dim sum items which are being served around the restaurant by servers in pushcarts. Not many restaurants do this nowadays. Among the many dim sum items that I tried, I like their Siew Mai and Chicken Feet the most.
Fried Dim Sum 4/5
Besides the steamed dim sum selections, the fried dim sum selection is worth trying too. In fact, I find the fried items faring better than the steamed items. The Fried Dumpling, Fried Yam Dumpling and Spring Roll are not to be missed.
Noodle Soup 3/5
The great thing about the weekend dim sum buffet at Peach Garden is not just about their dim sum. It is about their eclectic menu that consists of other dishes such as the live noodle station, Drunken Prawns, Pig Trotter with Vinegar, Salmon Sashimi and Sushi, on top of the dim sum selections.
Drunken Prawns 4/5
I think it is damn worth it when you pay only $23.80++ and get to have unlimited serving of Drunken Prawns. The prawns are big in size and sweet. The restaurant did not hold back in quality even though it is a buffet.
Pig Trotter with Vinegar 4.5/5
To my surprise, Peach Garden offers an awesome bowl of Pig Trotter with Vinegar among their weekend dim sum spread. I simply could not resist helping myself to the well braised pig trotter, that has absorbed the acidity of the vinegar, for a good sharp finish.
Sashimi and Sushi 3.5/5
I cannot say that the Sashimi and Sushi is of the best quality but it definitely added more varieties and options to diners. I think it is a good idea for families with younger family members who may not be too keen with the traditional dim sum items.
Ice Cream with Waffle Biscuit 4/5
Don't forget to keep your ears open and listen for the ice cream bell around 4pm. That means Ice Cream is served. Do be quick to get up from your seat as a line will be quickly formed for the traditional ice cream with waffle biscuit. Other desserts available among the spread includes egg tart and fruits with chocolate fondue.
