Don’t know if this was instigated by the dim sum chefs or management this time, though as good and inventive as the dim sum was they never attracted much of a following. Guess it’s back up to SF for crispy baked bbq pork buns.
That’s a shame! I agree that the dim sum was different than your usual suspects and even the usual dishes were good. I liked that there wasn’t a crazy brunch crowd like the other places.
Wait these guys had Dutch Crunch pork buns?
Xiang Yuan Gourmet had a matcha green tea topped crispy bbq pork bun, much better than that at Sea Harbour or China Red (or occasionally Lunasia).
Dang, how did I miss that?
I went to Xiang Yuan Gourmet or (XYgourmet on their email) last Sunday to see if they are still serving dim sum or special lunch, both of which I enjoyed. I arrived at 12:30pm, the restaurant was completely empty. I asked to see the lunch menu but was told that they do not have a lunch menu but only have the same menu for lunch and dinner. I decided against lunch at XYgourmet.
