Custard Bun and Xiao Long Bao

During the weekends we went for Dim Sum brunch in Chinatown. It had been quite a while since we had Dim Sum so the kids and I were craving for some tasty dishes. Besides ordering the usual dishes  which included Har Gow and Xiu Mai we decided to try some  different dishes.

The custard bun tasted very yummy with the custard oozing out when the bun was pulled apart. You can see from the picture above how the custard flows out  from the bun. It really looks so delectable.

We normally go to Ding Tai Fung to eat their trademark Xiao Long Bao  however we decided to try it out when we saw this dish on the menu at Mouth restaurant.  It really tasted yummy with the soup oozing out as you bite through the “skin”.

What are your favourite Dim Sum dishes?

Strawberry Shortcake and Chocolate Cake

I have always love eating cakes and am always on the look out for cafes that sell delicious cakes.  You can say that I am quite particular  about the taste and presentation of the cake. It has to appeal to me visually and satisfy my taste buds. Ever since I started baking back in 2007 I have grown more interested in the different types of cakes and how they are baked.

Strawberry Shortcake is one of the cakes which I have yet to learn to bake. It  seems a bit complicating at first with the layering but  I’m sure I will be able to figure it out once I get a suitable recipe to try out.

I love how there is more then one variety of chocolate in the cake shown above.  There is two distinct types of chocolate being use in the cake and the lower layer has nuts embedded in the chocolate making it crunchy when you sink your teeth into that layer.  This cake is also on my “learn to  bake” list.

Do you have any cakes that you intend to learn how to bake?
