Chinese New Year (CNY) is around the corner.. This year is a bit different for us, The Nomnoms, as we can't go back home and thus can't celebrate it with all our extended families.. 

Thinking about CNY, each of us may have different tradition and way to celebrate it. But one thing for sure, lucky food is served during the festival season, especially on the Chinese New Year's Eve, which is believed to bring good luck for the coming year. 

We heard that King's Seafood Restaurant in Eastwood is a popular one in Eastwood and we are interested in trying their Yum Cha selection. You will often find many people queueing up outside, so be there earlier if you don't want to wait.


Their service is quick and easy, you just have to wait for them to come to your table and just choose anything you want from the cart!


At first, we chose their Pork Siu Mai, Prawn Dumpling (Har Gow), Taro Dumpling (Wu Gok), Braised Chicken Feet, Steamed Rice Paper Roll (Cheung Fun) with Prawn and their Steamed Meatball..

As we started eating, the food was fresh and still hot from the cart. We also like their Chinese Tea (we chose Chrysanthemum flower). It's prepared with the right serving size which resulted in rich flavour..



This was one of our favourites.. With big bright pink chunks of plump and juicy shrimp veiled in thin translucent dough, their Har Gow was surely different from others..


This one was Mrs. Nomnom's fave! 

Ham Sui Kok (Fried Crescent Dumpling) was made to the perfection Mrs. Nomnom wanted it to be.. It was crispy on the outside, soft and chewy with slightly sweet inner wall and it had savory pork filling with that bit of sauce.. One word.. DELISH!!!


Wu Gok (Taro Dumpling) had won Mr. Nomnom's heart.. It had a crispy net-like outer that gave way to a soft fluffy layer of mashed taro. We thought that King's Wu Gok was a bit different as they had yellowish sauce mixed with the ground pork. We're still not sure what's that but definitely it made the Wu Gok tasted even better.

There's no room left for dessert as we're too full.. SO SAD!! I was eye-ing their Sago Pudding beforehand but left without trying it.. 

Overall, King's Yumcha has won our heart and definitely we'll be back for more and their desserts for sure..
