One of M's friends advised him to try out Golden Unicorn for yum cha, so we trekked out to Maroubra today to check it out.
|Small signs out at the front stating dinner specials|
|Long stairs leading us closer to the delicious smell of fresh dim sims|
|Half empty still when we arrived around 11.15, but soon filled up by noon|
|Flaky pastries with a taro filling|
|Spinach and prawn dim sims|
|Scallop dim sims|
|Braised mixed tripe/tendons/liver and white radish pieces|
This was one of my favourite dishes today - it can be hard to get all the tripe and tendon pieces to be cooked to a tender consistency without the tendons beginning to "melt", but each piece was tenderly cooked to perfection and bursting with flavour!
|Pan-fried prawn rice paper rolls with a seriously addictive hoisin and peanut dipping sauce|
|Pan-fried turnip cakes|
|Pineapple buns with a custard filling|
Another favourite from yum cha today! The sweet topping is often just slightly crumbly at other yum cha places, but the ones here are almost crispy like in consistency, and the custard filling inside was very rich and quite generous in custard:bread portioning. We enjoyed them so much that we ended up ordering another four to take away!
|Meatballs with water chestnut|
|Restaurant was full by noon|
|Scallop siu mai|
|BBQ pork buns|
