Recently, there emerges Japanese noodle and sushi shops here, combating with other vermecilli and snack shops. Situated in the middle of the alley, Caterking Dim Sum (豪隍點心) is one of those shops that I visit most often, normally with my father. From Monday to Fridays, the shop offers inexpensive lunch sets, including 1 choice of rice/vermicelli + 1 choice of dim sum + 1 choice of drinks.

 Having the large Chinese menu presenting the sets, I already made up my mind before going inside. Very carefully, the dim sum shop also offered English, Japanese and Korean menu to accommodate wider audience, which helped much lot to inform the audience what the dim sum was.

Furthermore, a picture provided menu can be found on each table, which was quite helpful not only to tourists, but someone, like me, who took ages to make the decision.

Taking a closer look to the lunch set menu again, there're quite a number of steamed rice and vermicelli choices.

 While the latter was not common in traditional dim sum shops, classic steamed rice in stainless steel pot/casserole (more recent style) with shiitake & chicken, pork cake with Mui Choi (pickled mustard green), beef cake with an egg always hit me up and reminded me of childhood. Almost steamed rice was a must-order dish during my dim sum visit, because of the mingling taste of soy and meat inside the grain of rice! I picked as well the Steamed Rice with Pork Cake and Mui Choi--$45, followed by my choice of dim sum and drink. Time to enjoy some good Chinese tea for my lunch!

As a matter of fact, the environment of this dim sum shop is quite nice, with some distance between tables and brightness, thanks to the light and transparent window of the shop.

The first item arrived was the special drink--Iced Milk Tea with Red Bean Paste (+$11). Need little introduction of Hong Kong drink list was hot milk tea, however, iced milk tea was also a popular option among local people. The shop added red bean paste to this traditional drink with less syrup to give it a twist, which I think was a smart choice to bring more texture and natural sweetness. One might think it felt liking having desserts-Hong Kong sweet soup
Recommended: 5/5

The next item arrived was the Steamed Rice with Mui Choi and Pork Cake--$45. The waitress kindly asked whether I need to add soy for my rice, which helped avoid too much salty liquid resulting in runny rice and overpowering soy flavour. Adding only touch of soy, the rice was subtly flavoured with the pork cake on top. Mixing them together to eat, one would feel the complexity of juice of pork, fragrance of long-grained rice, sweetness and saltiness from Mui Choy! The sweet soy was also a beautiful perfume to contrast out the taste of pork cake. Apart from the taste, the texture of the dish as a whole was also nice. Spongy pork cake and hard boiled rice made the dish more layering there on the teeth. If the Mui Choi could be bigger in bite size, certainly the texture can be further enhanced. Recommended: 5/5

Last but not least, the Ma Lai Go (Steamed custard cake) arrived! This is one of the most traditional and popular sweet types of dim sum in Hong Kong and Guang Zhou region. Because of its sweet nature, we often ordered it at the dessert!

To judge this dish, the cake should present an amber colour and spongy texture. Look, the bee wax body expressd much of its airy texture! More importantly, the cake tasted so good with balanced of sugar and egg: caramel flavour and taste of baked egg yolk! From the local eye, this was made perfectly with a traditional recipe that was less common nowadays in other dim sum shops. So, this was much worth a try! Recommended: 5/5

Overall, the service, environment and taste of the food here were very nice in my latest visit. Especially, with the inexpensive lunchset, customers could pick their own favourite dim sum and rice without much pressure on the bill
As a dim sum lover, their authentic taste would certainly bring me come back again!
