We ordered a mixture of dim sum and ala carte chinese food items. Their dim sum items comes mainly in threes. Featuring below is Signature Baked Barbecued Pork Bun ($5.80), Beijing Roast Duck served with Mexican Bun & Condiments ($40/half), Fried Rice with fresh Crab Meat and Egg White ($28 for small), Stir Fried Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk ($38 for small) and Stir Fry Asparagus with XO Sauce ($26 for small).

Aren’t these mini Signature Baked Barbecued Pork Bun ($5.80) cute? The skin was flaky and the crust has a 酥酥的口感. While inside is filled with moist char siew that has a sweet nice caramelised taste to it.

Next up was their very own version of Beijing Roast Duck served with a uncommon looking mexican buns. The mexican bun resembles that of the baked shell of the baked signature char siew bun. But actually do you know, the baked char siew bun are actually inspired by mexican bun instead? Basically the top of the bun is piped with a butter + sugar mixture before sending it to bake in the oven. It provides us with a different experience of eating the beijing duck. Instead of the thin usual circular egg roll piece, this bun provides a little sweet eggy and custardy flavor to the crispy beijing duck, at the same time lessening the greasiness as you put it into the mouth. For the remaining duck meat, you can choose how you would like to cook it. We chose the stir fry with black pepper style, which is surprisingly not bad! The black pepper was rather fragrant and the duck meat was still tender.

fried rice with fresh crab meat & egg white

Their Fried Rice with fresh Crab Meat and Egg White ($28 for small) was also a simple dish done well. It may be plain looking but it is actually very tasty. Each grain is well separated and you could taste each chunks of crab meat and egg white in your mouth. It basically has that home-cooked feel.

I would say this Stir Fried Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk ($38 for small) is actually one of the better ones I have ever tasted before. Not only does it has the salted egg yolk flavor, it is fragrant and has a slight butter-iness to it. Most important, I loved how this dish retains the sandy salted egg yolk texture. Not many places could achieve that actually.

Stir fry asparagus with XO sauce 1

Last but not least their Stir Fry Asparagus with XO Sauce ($26 for small). Asparagus was fresh and crisp with a nice green to it. The XO sauce has complemented the dish well with its little umami and spiciness.

It’s definitely one of the restaurants which have done fine cantonese dishes well. Generally, cantonese dishes are stronger in flavor and Feng Shui Inn manage to capture that essence yet at the same time, the flavor of all each dishes are not too overwhelming and overpowering! Good balance of flavors there!
