Enak Enak Hongkong Tea House @ Simpang Bedok

Enak Enak Hongkong Tea House

342 Bedok Road
Simpang Bedok


opening hours: 10am to 6am

Simpang Bedok Houses a variety of eateries that Singaporeans often visit for their supper. Amongst which lies this restaurant which serves Halal Dim Sum!

We visited the establishment on a Saturday night around 8.30pm. Although it was already full, we were promptly directed to a table. Despite the fact that they were almost full, the outdoor seating area was sufficiently ventilated and comfortable enough for us to enjoy our meal. 

They serve a huge variety of food including Thai, Western, Indian and Chinese/Hongkong cuisines. The food items were reasonably prices and the staff were extremely friendly, making our experience at the place even more pleasant. The range of dimsum they served were rather limited, but if you are looking for the basic ones like siewmai, xiao long bao, har gao, charsiew bun, lotus glutinous rice, they definitely have it on the menu.

Chee cheong fun with shrimps. This steamed rice roll (hong kong style) was well seasoned and the shrimps in it were fresh and succulent. The texture of the rice rolls was soft, but the surfaces stuck together and they were slightly to the mushy side. Overall, it was still quite nice:)

We were really disappointed by the liu sha bao. Although the salted egg yolk taste was excellent and fragrant, the filling was to the hard side and nothing flowed out (refer to the next picture), which is usually the best part of the liu sha bao!

We were extremely curious to find out how the Xiao long bao tasted, because it was made with chicken instead of pork. The xiao long bao had juice on the inside (one of the most important factors!) and it was definitely tasty enough! however, the skin of the xiao long bao was slightly too thick for its standards. nevertheless, it is a good option if you are looking at halal dim sum!

We also ordered the horfun to try. if you noticed it was a vegetarian version of it which the staff very amicably agreed to  helping us make! The signature wok hei of a hor fun was definitely present. The serving was HUGE, but it was slightlyyyy sweet which I didn't like (but some prefer it this way!)

Overall, our visit to the restaurant was pleasant, the food was reasonably priced with generous serving, the staff was friendly, the environment was friendly and if you want to bring your Muslim friends to try out Dim Sum, it is definitely representative enough of what Dim Sum should be :)
