[Brisbane] Dim Sum at Manor

The Manor Chinese Restaurant
6 Angel Street
Corner Gaskell Street & Angel Street
Eight Mile Plains, 4113

My No.1 choice for dim sum!

Manor at Eight Miles Plain
Located off Logan Road, behind Glen Hotel.

Manor's dim sum
All dim sum offerings are above average.
Deep fried calamari could be a tad too salty.
Siew mai fresh and well-seasoned.
Ham sui kok (deep fried glutinous rice dumpling) skin is crispy yet soft and chewy and NOT dripping in oil (very important).
Seafood dumpling was alright, I detest coriander!
Rice sheet roll is nice without skin being thick and mushy (yes, they can happen together!).
Claypot spare-rib and preserved meat is the star. The spare-ribs tender and fluffy rice cooked to perfection.

Custrad bun
Me and Princess absolute favourite, custard bun!

Custard buns are not executed well in lots of restaurant. Manor makes a kick-ass version. Fluffy skin with sweet yet savoury custard. I enter cloud nine with every bite.
