Wah Loke Cantonese Restaurant

My cousin hosted a weekend dimsum lunch at Wah Loke, this popular cantonese restaurant, which I've never head of till today, cos I'm really unadventurous when it comes to dimsum. Didn't know that there was such a nice dian xin restaurant so near Lei Garden at Chijmes too!Siew mai, Har Kau and char siew pau - the must have staples of any dim sum lunch.
The roasted chicken was not bad - though I'm not one to appreciate crispy skin.
The XO carrot cake was very good - with a good amount of shredded white carrot embedded in soft morsels of flour. Moist, not too oily and with a little touch of chilli.
Eefu noodles with seafood - nicely done, and again, not too oily.

Other dishes that we tried: The chee cheong fun with Prawn, which was silky and smooth. the century egg porridge, which was boiled to a smooth, milky paste, true to the Cantonese style cooking.
My favourite dish of the day is the char siew polo bun, which was simply amazing. The polo bun had a crumbly sweetish tasting top, and the bun itself was cottony soft and warm. It was stuffed with chunks of char siew and sweet sauce, and was very very delicious.
It gets really crowded especially on weekend lunches, so do make a reservation before going down. The give complimentary carpark for the first 3 hours (or $6).
