There is nothing more enjoyable than having Cantonese dim sum with my parents. Now open in the Cubus building, Cornucopia Fine Dining is a highly awarded restaurant that offers Chinese food of the highest quality and creativity. The restaurant is modestly decorated with big dancing lion heads, a contrasting theme of the colours red and gold; the spacious, quiet and comfortable ambience is particularly impressive, not to mention the superbly attentive staff.
A plate of crunchy cashew nuts is first met as a welcome appetiser.
Following the dim sum, the three gorgeous looking green dumplings are presented filled with a combination of shrimp and scallops. The juicy dumplings are exquisitely made with some crunchy pink veggie cubes on top, which resemble guava seeds. The combination of the flavours are delightful.
Next comes the deep-fried taro puffs. Unlike traditional ones, this supreme version is stuffed with delicious abalone that perfectly comes together with the mushy taro.
Another classic dish, the abalone tart, is packed with rich flavours of goose liver paste and topped off with mini abalone. This goodness is simply perfection especially with the buttery crust.
Last but not the least, the pan-fried rice rolls, prepared in hot XO sauce and rice porridge are presented. Both are very delicious and fulfilling.
Finally, comes the anticipated dessert. It turns out to be quite disappointing because it seems to lack fluffiness. The egg custard flavour is still spot on and the thousand layer sponge is texturally enhanced with coconut shreds.
Overall, Cornucopia obviously knows their dim sum. The quality and service found here definitely entice us for a return for their elegant dinner dishes.
