TATLER TIPS

Serv­ing sizes are gen­er­ous—the small is good enough for shar­ing between three to four when or­der­ing sev­eral dishes. Go for the fresh shrimp hakaw, baked Bo Lo pork buns filled with juicy morsels of bar­be­cued pork in a nice crumbly crust, and the soupy chilli crab xiao long bao dumplings. Seafood lovers in­dulge! Savour the sig­na­ture steamed live garoupa; the pan-fried fresh prawns in soy sauce, or the suc­cu­lent sautéed egg white with shred­ded steamed fish and con­poy, Shang­hai style. A nice coun­ter­point is the sour and spicy stewed egg­plant with minced meat. For a re­fresh­ing fi­nale, don't miss the av­o­cado pud­ding with pomelo.
