Empire Chinese Cuisine is located on the eating district in Richmond aka Alexandra road. My family and I rarely come here but we decided to give this place a shot.
The interior is spacious but noisy. But I guess you can’t really expect anything less than noisy when dining at a dim sum restaurant.
When I first saw these Baked BBQ Pork Buns I knew they weren’t going to be spectacular. It looked a little pale.
These actually tasted better than they looked but I did find the sweet crust on top of the bread to be overly sugary. Regardless, I still always enjoy foods with a sweet and savoury component Salt and caramel, bacon and maple syrup, you name it, I love all of them!
I rarely get to order this because I’m the only person who truly enjoys this dish in my family. It’s called Swirl Egg with Shrimp on Rice Noodles. In my opinion, these are the bomb! Empire Chinese Cuisine did a really great job on this dish as the prawns were plump juicy, and there were ample swirly egg sauce. 😀 Yumm…
I actually still don’t know how to make this swirly egg sauce that I love so much. Does anyone have a recipe or something? If so, please let me know!! 😀
Steamed Mixed Mushroom Dumplings.
These were pretty abundant in mushrooms and the natural woody flavours of the mushrooms shined through. Thumbs up for me!
I love shrimp dumplings (aka har gow) so I chose the fancier version of it, Shrimp and Egg White Dumpling. It is pretty much the same thing but with egg whites and some herbs like cilantro in it. I thought it was pretty good and I liked the bouncy texture of the skin.
These Panfried Minced meat with Chesnut and Taro.
These deliciously wrapped meat parcels are called Siu Mai or Pork Dumplings. They are always a fan favourite.
