Star of Canton, iSquare, TST - Great View, Good Dim Sum but Lousy Service!

Charles Yu | Mar 20, 2013 01:50 AM

After yesterday's pseudo disastrous Dim Sum lunch at V-Cuisine, I was a bit apprehensive when my Aunt suggested having Dim Sum lunch again with me today. We picked Star of Canton, famous for its 'Crispy Har Gow' but now, more for the fantastic harbour view at its TST location!

The view, indeed was spectacular! Food were decent to good with a number of 'cute' and fancy designs. The 'Spiny Hedgehog Cream Buns' and the ' Scallions with Conpoy Cheung Fun Rice Roll ' were both 'cool looking' examples!
Rest of the dishes follow some traditional routing and selection:
- Braised Chicken Feet
- Lotus Leaf Rice
- Crispy B-B-Q pork Buns
- Char Shiu Bao
- Crispy Beef Briskets
- Roasted Soya Pigeon

'Best tasting dish was the ' 8 Flavor Fried Crispy Tofu Cubes'!! Lovely textural feel with ultra crispy coating and super soft creamy centers.

We did not get our order of Crispy Har Gow since they misplaced the special order! Schucks!!

Service by the wait staff was below par and unattentive! Not being one of their regulars definitely has something to do with it!!!

BTW, the Crispy B-B-Q Pork has more filling and juicier this time, however still no match for Tim Ho Won.
