Rice dumpling is a traditional Chinese food for the dragon boat festival in memorial of the venerated poet and politician Qu Yuan thousands of years ago.
This shop’s rice dumpling is so fully packed with ingredients amid the mound of sticky glutinous rice, they include a salted duck egg York, a large piece of chestnut, a few pieces of dry shrimps, a small piece of shitake mushroom, and quite a large piece of pork belly meat to give a velvety texture. The whole dumpling is drizzled over with a rather thick brown sauce tastes like oyster favour sauce in a diluted sense. The glutinous rice is starchy enough and chewy, but all the ingredients don’t seem to blend together very well, although individually they are all very fresh and taste great.
Another thing I’ve tried is the Fish Ball Soup with Radish, altogether 3 very big fish balls are floating on the soup among some pieces of radish. Very disappointingly, the fish balls and the soup are artificially favoured together with pepper. The texture of the fish balls is coarse and hard, with nothing in your mouth tastes like fish at all.
