Exceeded expectations with a crunchy exterior that brings out the fattiest, soft, and tender meat. Served with sweet chili sauce.

Crispy exterior with a mushy prawny inner. Somewhat salty, but dipping into the sweet sauce balances the taste.

A massive yusheng that can feed 10 pax, featuring neatly sliced ingredients and a unique touch with shredded yam on top. Abalone adds a chewy and flavourful element.

A refreshing dessert with light sweetness. The koi made from white chocolate adds a cute touch. Aloe vera and jelly bring a clean and clear taste.

Sweet and sour pork ribs with just the right balance of sweetness and tanginess. Chewy tender meat on the bone. Be careful not to bite too quickly else your teeth will pain.

Reminiscent of the childhood song "拔萝卜". Slightly crunchy and chewy exterior with sweet, mushy, and thick paste within it.

A ball to boost vitality – crunchy crackling exterior with bursting melty cheesy interior and juicy shrimp. A delightful combination.

May the Fortune God bring abundance after enjoying this pumpkin-infused rice cake. Sweet and sticky rice cake with a vibrant yellow hue from the pumpkin. A delightful treat, though having more than one may feel a bit jelak.

Legend has it that this big and juicy lucky bag, wrapped with springy prawn, brings huge fortune and peace to all generations. Soggy beancurd skin aside, the ingredients inside provide a pleasant bite. Will be better if it was deep-fried IMHO.

Relaxing through the day with a dim sum buffet at Swatow, renowned for its Teochew cuisine. The experience had its hits and misses.

The braised pork belly stood out for its soft, tender, and fatty goodness. The chili crab meat was scarce, but its sauce paired well with mantou. Duck popiah and shark fin soup added a banquet touch. Mini lotus rice and paper-wrapped chicken are worth trying. The rice roll skin was thick, affecting the mouthfeel, but the sauce was redeeming. The egg tart was a miss, while desserts featured a fruit jelly drink, cakes, and surprisingly sweet macarons. The royal raisin ice cream was a rare find, resembling rum and raisin without the rum.

Despite the modest variety, the buffet left us feeling surprisingly full. Overall, it was satisfactory, with excellent service.
