Budhha Belly - Dim Sum

Rest : Buddha Belly
Meal : Dinner
Loc : Kemps Corner, 

Buddha Belly is an interesting experiment, the space is tiny but they have crammed quite a few tables into the space, there is a largish show kitchen towards the entrance and they serve a variety of Dim Sum. 

the menu is all dim sum, steamed, baked, fried all mostly Chinese with the odd Korean, Thai inspired 

while we tried all of them, this here is the Chinese mushroom which was pretty decent. They also have a truffle and edamame which has no truffle and no real taste. The spinach and parmesan is awesome. 

The Chef's special, Lu Buo Gao is spicy and i mean SPICY.. beware. 

the sticky rice is an all time fav for me, always get it when i see it on the menu, its fun unwrapping the thing, like a present. 

this one was not half bad, could have been better though. 

the khow suey was tasteless and didn't make much sense at a Dim Sum Joint, a noodle bowl of some kind would have made sense, i believe they cannot cook on the premises with a flame but doing a mediocre bowl of khow suey is not a substitute.

Overall, the food has potential but they need to work out their menu, its a little all over the place with an equal number of hits and misses which is not so cool when there are less than 20 dishes to begin with.

The portions are tiny but the pricing is pretty decent.

Having been there a few times already, the service has certainly improved but there is still room to grow. If you still feel hungry, walk up to Shalimar ...

Food : 6/10
Service : 6/10
Damage : 1000
