Gator went to have dim sum at Pink Pearl sometime ago. Gator heard a lot about Pink Pearl and how it stopped operations for a while due to some mysterious fire. But Gator was never around the area during lunch time. Finally, we happened to be at the vicinity one day and decided to have some dim sum.
We ordered mostly from the push-carts. It was super convenient and fast.
|One of Gator's standard orders: Siew Mai: It was moist and quite lovely|
|I think this had shrimps and chives inside. Nice :)|
|Scallop and fish roe dumplings: one of my favourites|
|Bean curd with stuffed pork filling|
|Shanghainese Steamed Soup Dumplings or Xiao Long Bao. Sometimes referred to as juicy dumplings|
|See the soup inside the Xiao Long Bao|
|Chicken Feet or Feng Zhao (Phoenix Claws). Gator's collagen intake|
|Gator never say no to desert and who can resist egg tarts?|
Overall, the dim sum was not the best but Gator was won over by the service. Also, if you are really hungry, it really helps that food is served quite quickly. Price was also reasonable.
Deco: 3/5 - this place is spacious. Ample seating arrangement and the restaurant even has a huge stage.
Quality of food: 3.5/5 - Gator is a bit of a dim sum snob.
Value for $$: $$$$/5 - great value. The bill came up to about $30 plus which was reasonable and we were stuffed.
Overall Experience: Service was excellent. The servers waited as we were taking pictures of the food before serving us and they were extremely polite. Unlike most dim sum restaurants where you generally pay at the front, the server brought us the bill and even the credit card machine to our table.
