Spicy Pan Fried Radish Cake.
Having had a great dining experience the last time we ate at Good Choice, we gave it a go for Dim Sum today.
The pan fried radish cake had just the right amount of heat. It had fresh chilies, fresh bean sprouts and the cubes of radish cake held well with a light crispy exterior and soft interior. Rating: 6/6
Scallions and Pork Neck in Soy sauce.
By far, my favourite dish of the whole lunch! It was so good! The meat was a little springy, very tender and not fatty at all. I loved the abundance of scallion. Very savoury and I would definitely order it again. Rating: 6/6
Black bean sauce clams.
This dish was okay. I liked the portion size. The sauce was on the watery side and I don’t like like it so “wet”. I liked a drier version myself. Rating: 4/6
Stomach is the har gow expert. He liked it very much. The skin was pretty good and the shrimp inside flavourful. Rating: 5/6
Lotus Leaf Sticky Rice.
The filling of the sticky rice consisted of pork, Chinese sausage and a piece of salted duck egg yolk. This is the kids’ favourite and Bebe ate a whole one on her own (after flicking they yolk on to Stomach’s dish). Rating: 5/6
Green Onion Pancake.
This version is fried. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But it is definitely not as flaky done this way in my opinion. Rating: 4/6
Black Bean Sauce Spareribs.
Juicy, plump, tender morsels or pork ribs and just the right amount of black beans…and seasoned just right. This dish was good. Rating: 5.5/6
The clear disappointment of the whole meal was the Singapore Fried Rice Vermicelli. Though it looks pretty enough, the noodles were hard (not soaked long enough) and needed flavour.
Though this dish had plump shrimp, I was disappointed with the insipid flavour. There was no heat and not enough "wok hei” or caramelizing going on. If it had more heat, more curry flavour or more meat/shrimp and scallion, it would have been saved. I took the whole dish home and fixed it by adding curry powder and cooking it until the noodles softened more.
Deep Fried Meat-stuffed Dumplings.
This dish was good and had plenty of meat filling. The exteriors were crisp and the dough was nice and chewy just like it’s supposed to be. Rating: 5/6
Coconut Pudding .
Really, it’s more like a hard jello. Anyhow, what’s a meal without dessert? This coconut pudding was nicely set and tasted cool, milky and refreshing.

Good Choice was actually very good for Dim Sum. I was happy and would come back again. I just wouldn't order the noodles dishes now that I know that the Singapore Rice Vermicelli was a flop. The regular items on the dim sum menu were all really good though and I'd like to order some other ones to see how they are too. There are some interesting items on the menu that are more innovative than the regular Dim Sum fare.
