Recently, I went for the ever so well-known Ban Heng Restaurant’s Dim Sum Buffet and some of these dim sums really impressed me and I really wanna share them with you guys!
Even though the price for this buffet is a little on the heftier side (prices below), it’s still worth the try because you’ll never get some of these dishes elsewhere.
I know this sounds mainstream, but the Salted Egg Fish Skin here is one of the more solid ones I’ve had mainly because they actually use salmon skin. The salted egg really just coated the big chunks of crunchy salmon skin and I was just constantly snacking on it even though it was a little spicy. Usually, if something is spicy, I’ll totally avoid it after one mouth so this is how much I loved the salted egg fish skin.
I think this is my new favourite dim sum ever. The Deep-fried Phoenix Prawn Roll literally crumbled in my mouth the moment I bit into it, followed by the springy fresh prawn under the noodle-wrapped layer.
I’m sure everyone knows of these 2 famous steamed dim sums – Har Kow and Xiao Long Pao. They’re a standard must-haves at a dim sum restaurant and the ones at Ban Heng will not disappoint
For buns, we tried the Barbecued Pork Bun (Char Siew Pao) and Salted Egg Yolk “Liu Sha” Bun and they don’t disappoint! I would gladly waste my calories eating the warm and smooth filling in the liu sha bun which was so comforting as it was a childhood favourite.
These are just the other dim sums that you should try when you’re there. It was my first time eating Paper-wrapped Chicken Wings and I felt like there are better tasting chicken wings out there but it’s still a pretty cool concept. Laska was as usual, spicy, but it was really fragrant.
Heat: 0/5 (5/5 for laksa)
There are also desserts in their buffet options and they have a wide variety of Cheesecakes like Original, Oreo, Apple Crumble and Chocolate. I only recommend trying the original one as it was not too sweet and I preferred the texture of it compared to the chunky oreo/apple crumble bits. There is also Yam Paste with Pumpkin (Orh Nee) but I felt that the liquid-y pumpkin was too much so I had to scoop them out to get to the orh nee.
