So lately I've been writing so much about Asian culinaries. Please don't get bored, lol.
And today I would like to write another Asian culinary dishes. I'm going to write about dimsum. Absolutely my favourite dishes of all Asian cuisines.
As you know there are so many restaurants that serve dimsum on their menus, but not all of them can be found appetizing and tasty.
A friend of mine recommended a particular restaurant which he said serves great dimsum. So I just had to go and taste the dimsum at MAD Modern Asian Diner.
The interior is very nice. It's very catchy, youthful, with shocking colors applied for the wallpapers. You will also find an open kitchen, where you will see the restaurant crews prepare your food too. Astonishing interior for my consideration. So cozy and comfortable, and most definitely unique. Here I give you some snapshots of the interior I took that day.
It was so good also. The pastry had a nice taste. Sweet but in a very nice level. The egg custard was excellent. It was creamy and delicious. A great combination of textures between the crunchy pastry and the soft creamy egg custard.
The buns were so soft, and the fillings are just awesome. The overall taste was sweet. For something that incorporated salted egg inside, there was no trace of saltiness in my mouth. It's no problem for me though. I still feel the savoriness of the salted egg which was sooo good. The egg yolk was also very creamy and tasty too.
The fillings were pork. The dumpling skin was a bit thin, so I had trouble lifting the Xiao Long Pao without breaking the skin and bursting the broth out (do be careful about this). The fillings for my palate were wonderful. The pork was tasty and the broth was so delicious. Savory and nice. Would be perfect if only the dumpling skin wasn't that fragile and thin.
The taste was so herbal. It was so fresh and nice. The original taste was plain, but they gave you a small cup of liquid sugar so you can determine just how sweet you want your tea to be. For something that uses grass jelly, don't feel confused if you can't find any chunks of grass jelly inside. FYI, this is not a bubble drink though.
Overall conclusion, this is a place I can absolutely give high recommendation for the dimsum menus. Certainly my dining experience here was terrific. I've tried quite a lot of delicious delicacies in a place I can say was sooo fantastic, cozy and has impeccable service.
MAD also has other decent delicacies but I have to say the price tags are quite expensive.
For the dimsum prices though are quite fair, cause I think the overall taste was quite remarkable.
So if you are a fan of great dimsum cuisines, this should be a perfect place for you. My only regret was I didn't use the all you can eat promo. So I'm looking forward for my next visit, maybe next time for the all you can eat those delicious dimsum menus.
Keep on chewing!
