Red Star Restaurant III: Dim Sum Singapore

The last time i went to Red Star was a couple of months ago, and then didn’t have much pictures to show of due to the poor lighting. But today, i had a good seat with good lighting, so ladyironchef proudly presents the Dim-sum from Red Star. Taa-daa!!

Siew Mai

Well well, Siew Mai seems to be a must-have item for Dim Sum, if it is the garge to judge a Dim sum restaurant’s standard, Red Star definitely pass the test with flying colours. The Siew Mai is good, unlike the normal ones where eating one or two will makes you bloated, the one here are chewey, and after having two, another two shan’t be much of a problem.

Har Gau

Har Gau and Siew Mai always come togther don’t they. Har Gau Siew Mai. Thumbs up to the Har Gau here, a big prawn inside the skin of the Har Gau. Need we say more?

Chee Chong Fun

The clear winner in Red Star, it always get sold out faster than you saw it. Luckily today we didn’t have to wait for the auntic to come a second round.

Fried prawn


From what the staff say, this one is only available on Sat, so get em’ the next sat u go. The dumpling is really awesome! Rarely did i see any dumpling outside (except from my mom’s home-made dumpling) that has fillings so thick the dumpling skin barely hold it.

Fried You-tiao with mayo

American-roasted duck ($18)

Undoubtly the Star of the show, the American-roasted duck (no idea why it is american roast) was crispy and tasty. The skin was as crispy as one you would expect from a roast sucking pig. There is another version available, the Beijing-roasted duck. From what i gathered about Red Star’s duck, the American-roasted duck is crispier but fatter, while the Beijing’s version is leaner but not as crispy. However, at $18 for half a duck, it is too expensive and too little. At the same price, we coould even get a better whole roasted duck.

I was amazed when we paid up. Total bill was $69.85 for two person. The last time i was there, we onli paid $100 over for ten odd person. This time two of us manage to gobble up so much. But then again much of the damage was from the duck. 7 big dim sum, 3 small dim sum, and 2 others. After ”brunch” at Red Star, we went to Recess @ Mount Sophia, and Wild Rocket @ Mount Emily. Exciting places to be, stay tune for the coming posts : )
