Lunch at Lai Toh Heen (short review)

I was surprise to see that LTH offers set lunch for $20/person.
I tried it & found it quite nice.

Here's what we had:

Assorted dim sum ( 4 pcs.) :
pastry filled w/ foie gras - the pastry is puffy & not too oily, can't taste the foie gras though;
steamed wonton w/ minced chicken & vegetable - very neat & clean taste,
har gau - good
baked puff pastry w/ cured ham & shrimp - good balance of sweet & saltiness.

Choice of soup:
meat wonton in chicken consomme - very good! The consomme has fragrance of chinese ham, meat filling has some veg that makes it quite refreshing.
hot & sour soup w/ seafood - my friend enjoyed it very much.
assorted mushroom in egg drop soup.

Choice of :
shredded duck with fried noodle - my friend said it's delicious
chicken fried rice - quite a big portion. It's piping hot & tasty.

cream custard tart
deep fried glutineoug ball , ginger & lotus paste filling, sesame crust - outstanding.

I was full after eating all these.

Service was attentive & efficient.
Worth a try if you are in that area.
