Yum Cha at Big Gun
Shop 7/2922 Logan Rd, Underwood
When I last wrote a post for Big Gun, I had a huge response from friends and blog readers alike, claiming that my experience wasn't representative of their standards. The resounding statement was 'but their yum cha was good'. I was nearly so put off by the poor quality of dishes we ordered that I thinking 'STUFF THE YUM CHA' but my duty as an accurate (not rageful) food blogger drove me to give it a go.
All in the pursuit of the truth.
So, last week when mum and dad were thinking about where to go for lunch, I threw Big Gun into the mix of options and that's what they ran with.
We didn't make a booking and were lucky to get a table because the place was pretty packed. After we were seated, a queue started forming so there's a heads up: they're really popular around lunch time.
Below are the items we chose of the carts. I heard from one of my readers (Bonnie) that they make things you don't see in other yum cha places. We went with a few safe classics and I also picked this eggplant dish I've never seen before.
Of all the plates, I didn't like the pork ribs (too bland) or the giant steamed bun much. Everything else was very well made. Fresh, hot and tasty. I really liked that obscure eggplant thing too. There isn't much in the way of service at yum cha because everything tends to be quite rushed but I got a good impression of the service here. I already thought positively of the service last visit but at the yum cha, we were asking around for chicken feet and then someone remembered that we wanted some so came and brought it over... that was nice.
In short, I'm glad I went back to Big Gun to try their yum cha. It was a nice experience and I'd recommend others to go there. In fact, we nearly did go back another time since then but their night time yum cha started too late and my friends were hungry :).
