I have lived at Kovan for a few years now and there are tons of food stalls littered all around. One of the Saturdays, we chanced upon this stall called Yi Dian Xin Hong Kong Dim Sum. It was a really small stall hidden in a corner of a tiny coffee shop as well. It seemed like many people were trying it so we waited for a seat and decided to order some of our favourite dishes.
It took some time for our dishes to be ready but I have to say it was worth the wait and worth the money as well. Everything was fresh, made on the spot and served piping hot. The taste was really great and I think it was actually better than many other high priced Dim Sums I have had at other coffee shops. What surprised me was the Xiao Long Bao. Usually, as such coffee shop stalls, they seldom sell XLB and even when they do, it is usually horrendous, but this was good! It actually had some substance to it and I appreciated the quality.
I tried this place some time back and will be trying it again soon. Hopefully the standard is still good.
