Mayim Chinese Cuisine @ West Mall

A cheapskate like me rarely check in luggages for flight and so I couldn't bring back the Allano Hand & Body Lotion from home to Singapore because it's flammable. My mum had to pass it to my relative who went back to Penang who is currently staying in Bukit Batok, Singapore so that I can collect from here.

This brought us to realize the reason why I had my lunch at West Mall - as I collected the lotion from her at the Bukit Batok Polyclinic when she brought her baby for consultation.

I googled about food at West Mall then found Mayim Chinese Cuisine 天樂里精品食館, let's try it (while I don't know how '天樂里' is translated to 'Mayim').

Chu Luei was dragged along for lunch - nothing much to choose for lunch during vacation in NUS.

According to Wikipedia, 天樂里 is a street in Hong Kong. That makes sense while it's a place for dim sum, but still I don't see the link with 'Mayim' (as according to Mayim's website, 'mayim', the 13th letter of the hebrew alphabet means 'water').

燒味雙拼麵(湯) Noodles with 2 choices of roasted meat served in soup ($7.80) ★★★★☆

上海小籠包 Shanghai "xiao long bao" ($0.80 per piece) ★★★★★
Need some skills to eat these with maximum pleasure - preventing the soup inside the dumplings from leaking.

荷香珍珠雞 Steamed glutinous rice with chicken in lotus leaf ($2.50) ★★★★☆

鼓汁蒸排骨 Steamed pork ribs with black bean ($2.50) ★★★☆☆

海南炸饅頭 Golden fried bun ($1.00 per piece) ★★★★☆
It is served with kaya as the buns are plain but crunchy.

* Prices are subject to 10% service charge and 7% GST

The dim sums were really delicious and affordable but sadly we're charged $1 for the Kimchi served initially as appetizer (I supposed, and apparently we didn't order that) and $0.60 for the soft towelettes. :(
