Despite the monopoly Gold Leaf has on yum cha in Springy, they certainly don’t drop the ball like Telecom did in the old days. The maitre’d ice amongst the storm, either he is oblivious to the crowd that continually inches towards lectern or he doesn’t give a hoot about the concerns of anxious diners probably wondering how such a large place could be so bloody packed. Don’t worry, as long as he knows you are waiting, you will be looked after.
Once you’re lead to your table by a secret service agent, you can satisfy that appetite with the usual steamed and fried stuff. Prawn flavoured sticky rice balls on sautéed duck webbing is something for the more adventurous to impress or freak out but unfortunately is not too tasty. Tofu Fa has enough syrup sweetness with a hint of ginger, the dessert that totally made this trip is the gooey red bean filled glutinous rice ball. Love it.
