Kow Loon Hong Kong Dim Sum 1

Kow Loon Hong Kong Dim Sum occupying two adjacent stalls in a coffeeshop at Ang Mo Kio where all the hand-made dim sum are made. The stall earns its name for its affordable price and reasonable quality.

Kow Loon Hong Kong Dim Sum has an extensive menu featuring most of the common dim sum items besides a few unique chef specialities dishes like the Yong Tau Fu, vinegar pork knuckle and crab congee.

Kow Loon Hong Kong Dim Sum 8

BBQ Pork Puff ($4.0 for 4pcs)

Kow Loon Hong Kong Dim Sum 3

The skin was fluffy and buttery but lacked of the crispiness, may be the pork puffs were exposed to our humid environment for a prolonged period and absorbed the moisture. Fillings were ordinary and nothing to shout about.

Hong Kong Style Liang Tofu ($5.0 for 5 pcs)

Kow Loon Hong Kong Dim Sum 7

It served with meat wrapped in chili, buttergourd, eggplant, beancurd and a meat roll. The Fish and pork meat was somehow hard in the texture but the delectable gravy helped to make up the gaps.

Sesame Mango Shrimp Rolls ($3.8 for 3 pieces)

Kow Loon Hong Kong Dim Sum 4

The coating was deep-fried to achieve a crispy texture, filling was the combination of the sweet mango and crunchy prawns, The sweet and savoury flavour with the spread of mayonnaise sauce made this dim sum dish a lovable item.

Crab Congee ($6.0)

Kow Loon Hong Kong Dim Sum 6

The congee tasted plain though it was cooked with cuttlefish and flower crab. Good crab congee should be infused with all the goodness of the seafood in every of the rice grain and not a bowl of plain porridge that failed to blend the two.

Ginger & Vinegar Pig Trotter ($5.0)

Kow Loon Hong Kong Dim Sum 2

Another chef recommendation, the serving portion was considered generous for the price we paid, the concoction gravy was well-balanced with the sweetness and sourness taste, what is lacking off probably the caramelized palm sugar and the ginger aroma. However, it is a dish that worth to try.

Our verdict on Kow Loon Hong Kong Dim Sum
