Lunch at Canton Paradise MBS
We were at Canton Paradise Marina Bay Sands for a light lunch and ordered a dim sum item, a chef recommended item and a noodle dish. Chinese tea was charged at $$1.80 per person. The usual service charge and GST would be added to the bill.
The dim sum item of deep fried taro puff with diced chicken ($5.80 for 3 pieces) was very good. It had nice golden brown crispy skin and filling of delicious smooth taro and sweet and savoury diced chicken.
We had the Salt & Pepper Deep-fried Tofu ($8.80) which came is a small edible basket. There was a thin crisp exterior which was nicely seasoned and the inside was soft and smooth. It was a simple but delightful dish.
The wok-fried hor mun with beef ($16.80) was not the best looking dish but it was rather tasty. The thin slices of beef had a nice tender texture and savoury juiciness and the generous amount of bring sprouts added some crunchiness.
