T.Pot China Bistro on Urbanspoon

When we were younger it was a sunday tradition to go for dim sum with our parents followed by shopping for chinese groceries. Its was the only day of the week that my brother and I weren't going to school and my dad wasn't working so it made for a special day. Thankfully T-Pot China Bistro with its delicious dim sum is located steps away from T&T market allowing us to relive our laid back family Sundays. Here is an update to our original post from a more recent visit

We started off with egg tarts which if you've never tried them before are little sweet tarts filled with a creamy egg yolk custard. The pastry here is flakey and has a hint of savouriness from the lard used in the dough.

Salt and pepper squid is a great treat every so often and was really crispy with just the right chewiness to the squid.

The nice thing about T-Pot is that in addition to the traditional dim sum dishes above, they also have Hong Kong style rice and noodle dishes. Below is chicken rice dish that although looking simple was full of intense chicken flavour. The rice tasted like it was cooked with both chicken broth and the fat which added loads of richness to otherwise bland rice. The chicken was moist and went great with the sweet chilli and soy sauces.
