Tunglok means 同乐 in Mandarin, which basically means “happy together” in English. A great and telling name for a restaurant if you ask me. Known for their exquisitely handmade dimsum made on the spot, we knew we had to give it a try.
It was a bright, sunny day when we decided that it was time for some dimsum lovin’.
Before we show you the ones we don’t usually see at other restaurants, let’s start off with the usual suspects.
The pan fried turnip cake was to die for. Each bite bursting with freshness, so good it shows from the pictures (right??)! Definitely one of our top favourites from this dim sum visit.
You can never go wrong with beancurd skin + fresh prawns.
As you take a bite, the crunch from the freshly fried beancurd skin will meet the tenderness of the fresh and tasty prawn filling. Nomz.
Porridge was regular, methinks. Could have been slightly tastier but it was a good and simple staple to fill your belly with.
Xiao long bao was pretty tasty too, but the picture doesn’t do it justice. Perhaps it would be nicer if it were to look plumper and fuller, so more meat filling would do the trick. 😛
Siew mai was good, skin was not too thick and meat was juicy.
Sorry for not showing you the flowy shot of the liu sha bao, but we assure you it did flow! Couldn’t help but slurp it all up, before thinking of you readers. Hehe #sorrynotsorry
Bun was very soft and chewy too, not too thick, so perfect!
These buns were tasty, however I thought the bun was not crumbly enough. Perhaps after all the carbs aforementioned, this was a tad too much. It was more bun-ny then a crumbly pastry, the latter would have been lighter and less taxing on the belly mefeels.
The filling was really juicy and all, but we found that it had a tad too much fats in it.
We still prefer Tim Ho Wan’s baked bbq pork buns… #oops
Next, onto the signature dishes…
This was unbelievably delicious! We had our doubts about this dish but decided to give it a go since it was a signature dish. So glad we did!!
A thin layer of rice roll wrapped around fried-to-perfection dough fritters, and these fritters had filling in them too! A scrumptious surprise!
It was so good that this was the only shot we managed of it, before we devoured it like savage beasts. #itwasthatgood
Never seen a bun as lovely as this! These buns bear an uncanny resemblance to a mushroom, cap and stalk all. So much effort and skills meticulously put into one bun. Just look at the intricate system of patterns on the exterior of the bun, I could stare at this all day. Definitely instagram-worthy!
Savoury filling consists of a mixture of juicy mushrooms, namely Japanese shiitake, King Oyster Mushrooms, Tea Tree Mushrooms and more.
Bun was so soft and fluffy and chewy all at the same time. It was so good that we couldn’t help ordering another round of these buns.
Whether you’re a fungi-lover or not, this is definitely a must-try!
