Grand Harbour @ Fahrenheit 88

January 28, 2013

Docking at Fahrenheit 88s new Grand Harbour for all-day dim sum with a distinctive difference.

Novelties here include animal-themed creations like shrimp dumplings topped with quail eggs ... 

 ... super-cute swan-shaped puff pastry stuffed with thick durian paste (RM8.80+) ...

 ... & mice-like glutinous rice balls (RM7.80+) filled with custard & flaked with coconut.

Bun as teapot (RM6.80+), teeming with steaming-hot egg yolk cream.

Pumpkin pastry (RM6.80+), crisp on the outside, velvety-golden within.

Grand Harbours a safe port for pork; the siu yok here is exactly the way we like it ...

 ... though the char siew & roast duck might seem unmemorable. Good but not great.

Steamed pork stomach in spicy plum sauce (RM7.80+) supplies a workout for the jaws.

Fabulously fatty pork trotter, cooked in claypot with chee cheong fan rice rolls (RM10.80+). 

Last, not least: Water chestnut cakes (RM5.80+), served warm. Be ready for this jelly!

Pu-er tea, available raw or ripened, in vintages that span a year to forty of aging (the priciest: RM298+ per pot). We opted for the seven-year-aged, RM12+ per person. 

Bonus stop at Fahrenheit 88: Visiting this malls third-floor branch of Coffee Stain By Joseph.

Gibraltar latte & Macchiato espresso, both sufficiently satisfying. We like.
