On Saturday as part of the celebration of our youngest daughter’s birthday, we went to have dim sum for lunch in Paddyfields Restaurant in Oxford City Center. When we do crave for dim sum, we will go to there, as it is the closest restaurant which serves authentic dim sum which tastes good. Below are some of my family’s favourite dishes.
We all like beef crispy noodles, as the beef is nice and tender and the noodles are crispy. This along with the sauce, helps this dish to work on multiple sensations as you eat it – both taste and texture; if you don’t like beef, it also comes with the choice of chicken or seafood. Nice.
My youngest daughter’s favourite is the Har Cheong Fun or prawn rice noodle roll. With the soy sauce , it does taste very nice indeed. In fact my daughter managed to finish this whole plate on her own.
These prawn dumplings or har gau are another favourite and a must when we eat dim sum.
My oldest daughter’s favourite is the siu mai or pork dumpling. It is great that they both have different favourites, as it means they can tuck in to their own dish when we order dim sum.
The carrot cake is one of my favourite dishes. It is made from shredded chinese radish. This has to be steamed prior to cutting into pieces to pan fry.
The deep fried squid does taste very nice, particularly when dipped in the accompanying tomato sauce.
The following two are my wife’s favourites – taro dumpling and ham sui gok (fried pork dumpling).
It was a good meal, and my daughters enjoyed it immensely.
