Royal China @ Raffles Hotel

Had a birthday celebration for a friend at Royal China.  Being the more "Kiasu" lot, we went before 11am (first seating) but of course, we had made an advanced reservation.

Tiffany blue interior.
Our table setting.
We ordered a glass of lychee peach tea each.
Lean meat and century egg congee
Siew Mai with flat-leaf parsley and wolfberry on top as decor.  ($4.80)
Chee Cheong Fun - 3 rolls, each with different fillings of prawns, scallops and char siew.
Steamed layered cake with salted egg yolk custard.  Very nice pesentation and looks appetizing.  However, a pity that I ate this when it was cold.  Better to eat it immediately once it has been served. 
Steamed prawn dumpling or Har Gow ($4.80). 
Mini Egg Tarts
Char Siew Puff
Custard Buns
The custard buns here are the best!!!
Barbequed pork buns ($3.60)
Shanghai Pan-Fried buns
Fried Beancurd Roll
Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken in Lotus Leaf ($4.80)

Overall, we find the the dim sums were good and really value-for-money, with most of the items below $5.  Some of my friends were considering coming here again to celebrate Mothers' Day.

Other than dim sum, we also ordered.....
Pork ribs
Peking Duck
with caviar....

Suckling Pig with peanuts
Cake for the birthday gal from "Awfully Chocolate" (Raffles City)
We took our group photo when the 3 kids were still playing around.
Happy Birthday to Sam! :)
There you are, the 3 adorable kids.
