Tung Lok Signatures VivoCity – Dim Sum and Dumpling Lunch (outlet closed)

Did you know that VivoCity is the largest mall in Singapore?  It is bigger than Suntec City or Ngee Ann City, has been in operation since 2006 and was built on the site of the former exhibition halls of the Singapore World Trade Centre (source : Wikipedia). Vivo City also boasts a vast collection of eateries. Many restaurants have come and gone over the years. One of the restaurants that has been there for a long time and still going strong is Tung Lok Signatures VivoCity. This Chinese restaurant has been there since the beginning (as far as we can remember) and is still looking good.

Tung Lok Signatures VivoCity still looks the same since our last visit some time ago. Its modern white decor still looks attractive. The all glass wall along the side of the restaurant lets in a lot of natural light and provides a view towards Sentosa at one end.

We had a simple dim sum lunch at Tung Lok Signatures Vivo City. Here are pictures of the dim sum menu as well as some other portions of the menu which contain dishes which might be interesting to our readers with bigger budgets.

Our lunch started with the century egg porridge with diced duck meat ($6). Other than the soggy dough fritters, we enjoyed the rest of the porridge very much. The flavours of the century egg and meat blended very well. We also detected the flavour of salted egg yolk.

Since it is near Dumpling Festival (“Duan Wu Jie”), we also had an XO rice dumpling ($6.80). This was a nicely flavoured meat dumpling. Which makes this a possible place to celebrate the Festival and have dumplings.

The baked pastry with BBQ pork (“char siew soh”) ($4.80) was a more conventional dim sum item.  Its taste was quite average.

The mee sua with prawns in broth in bamboo cup ($8.80) was an interesting way of presenting noodles. The bamboo receptacle certainly looks attractive and we expected a richly flavoured cup of seafood noodles. As it turned out, the taste was pleasant enough but did not pack the intensity that the appearance suggested.

Finally, we had the pan-fried turnip cake with taro shreds ($4.80). This was an interesting variation of the usual fried carrot cake. The taro shreds on top added a crunchy texture to the otherwise soft item.  The appearance also made it look like a serving of roast pork.
