Yi Dian Xin Hong Kong Dim Sum (一点心)

Yi Dian Xin Hong Kong Dim Sum (一点心) - Upper Serangoon

Located at the coffeeshop alongside with the popular Heng Long Teochew porridge, Yi Dian Xin Hong Kong Dim Sum can be easily overlook by passing cars or passerby unless you step foot into the coffeeshop itself. This place is just one bus stop away from Kovan MRT, along the stretch of shophouses opposite Ponggol Nasi Lemak, directly next to Astons.

Menu with steam and fried dim sum items.

Glutinous Rice Lo Mi Ji  ($2.20) - This version of Lo Mi Ji is too saucy till the extend the fragrance of the rice could not be tasted. Any coffeeshop which sells Baos and Lo Mi Ji certainly taste better.

Chicken Big Pau ($2.40) - A large big pau with fluffy soft skin, filled with marinated chicken, egg and mushroom ingredients.

Steamed BBQ Pork Pau ($2.00) - Warm fluffy char shiew pau with chewable pieces of sweet bbq pork. One of the very few char shiew bao which i fancy. Recommended dish to order.

Rice Roll with Char Siew ($2.50) - Sweet bbq pork wrapped between thin pieces of translucent rice rolls.

Beancurd Prawn Roll ($2.90) - Deep fried beancurd roll which i find it too oily.

Signature Salted Egg Custard Pau ($3.50) - Freshly steamed  piping warm liu sha bao is certainly the saver this place. Proportion of butter and salted egg yolk is just nice, not too oily or buttery. The filling oozed perfectly upon piercing apart. Highly recommeded, as good as those better liu sha bao tasted.

Siew Mai ($2.80) - Pork filling with no prawn.

Shanghai Xiao Long Bao ($2.80) - Frangant soup within the xiao long bao, best eaten with ginger and vinegar. Though the skin is not extremely thin, but still it's not a bad dish.

Dim sum spread:  $21 for 2 person.Worth it right?

Verdict: 3.5/5
Price: $10 per pax

Yi Dian Xin is a dim sum eatery comparable to the popular 126 and Swee Choon Dim Sum. Though not excellent compared to restaurants, the range, price and quality of food offered is considered good for a coffeeshop standard. If I ever visit this eatery again, it would be for the Liu Sha Bao and Char Siew Bao.
