Old Hong Kong Kitchen (Novena Square 2)

C says:

On hindsight, this may not have been the best choice for lunch, fresh from last night’s awesome experience at Imperial Treasure. But since we had our dental appointments in the vicinity, and A had a recommendation for Old Hong Kong Kitchen from a colleague, we decided to try it post-dental today.

They have quite a varied menu, including peking duck, but what we were here for was the dim sum. We ordered a siew mai, chicken feet, a char siew chee cheong fun, a pan fried chee cheong fun, steamed carrot cake, porridge, a soup and a custard bun.

Portions here are absolutely massive, and as a result we were struggling to finish everything. Unfortunately that’s the only thing that I really remember about the meal. No one dish really stood out, and I couldn’t help but think that for everything that we ordered, we’ve had better versions of it elsewhere, like Victor’s Kitchen, for example.

My conclusion is that it’s definitely value for money, because prices are quite reasonable and you get really big portions, but the food itself isn’t very refined.

A says:

Very good value with large portions that aren’t as bad as C makes them out to be. And the large portions make sense if you’re dining with friends or family. I’d recommend it if you’re looking for a place to take a group of 4-8 for mid-range dim sum.
