Docking at Fahrenheit 88's new Grand Harbour for all-day dim sum with a distinctive difference.
Novelties here include animal-themed creations like shrimp dumplings topped with quail eggs ...
... super-cute swan-shaped puff pastry stuffed with thick durian paste (RM8.80+) ...
... & mice-like glutinous rice balls (RM7.80+) filled with custard & flaked with coconut.
Bun as teapot (RM6.80+), teeming with steaming-hot egg yolk cream.
Pumpkin pastry (RM6.80+), crisp on the outside, velvety-golden within.
Grand Harbour's a safe port for pork; the siu yok here is exactly the way we like it ...
... though the char siew & roast duck might seem unmemorable. Good but not great.
Steamed pork stomach in spicy plum sauce (RM7.80+) supplies a workout for the jaws.
Fabulously fatty pork trotter, cooked in claypot with chee cheong fan rice rolls (RM10.80+).
Last, not least: Water chestnut cakes (RM5.80+), served warm. Be ready for this jelly!
Pu-er tea, available raw or ripened, in vintages that span a year to forty of aging (the priciest: RM298+ per pot). We opted for the seven-year-aged, RM12+ per person.
Bonus stop at Fahrenheit 88: Visiting this mall's third-floor branch of Coffee Stain By Joseph.

Gibraltar latte & Macchiato espresso, both sufficiently satisfying. We like.
