This week our Makan Kaki, Chef Shen Tan of Ownself Make Chef returns to catch up with us & share her latest discovery, which actually comes at the recommendation of a foodie friend of hers via Instagram. And she was happy to report, this discovery did not disappoint! Now, when it comes to a whole menu of delicious delicacies, there’s hardly anyone who doesn’t like dim sum, right? And some of the best Chef Shen has had to date, comes from Kai Garden.
It served the most amazing, if not, possibly the best Liu Sha Bao (salted egg custard bun) she’d ever had. It hit the right salted egg yolk notes, it was lush, creamy and with one bite, molten, golden deliciousness came pouring out of the bun.
Another thing of note was the Siew Mai. These steamed beauties were humongous & really delicious. What made them more interesting was their slight char, which added smoky depth to the meat dumplings.
These are just a couple of dim sum Chef Shen would order again in a heart beat. But we all know, we can’t stop at 2, there’s a whole array of other treats to taste on their menu (like their tempting Char Siew Sou, or BBQ pork pastry below). So if you want to have some really good dim sum, head on over to Marina Square and give Kai Garden a try!
