|Miliken Restaurant & Bar is a cheap and decent dim sum restaurant in the Scarborough area. Prices are $2.10 for all dishes during the week and $2.40 for the weekend. I live awfully close to the restaurant so I also appreciate the convenience.|
|I didn't try neither the Chiu Chow-style meat and vegetable dumplings nor the crystal shrimp dumplings, so I can't comment too much on them. The shrimp dumplings were on the smaller side.|
|The first plate of deep fried taro dumpling given to us was barely lukewarm in the centre, so we had to ask for another batch.|
|The portion sizes for Korean style short ribs were quite inconsistent. We had two orders of this dish and the second dish was a lot larger. However, the short ribs tasted pretty good, albeit a little oily.|
One of my favourite dishes here was deep fried meat dumpling. The slightly sweetened glutinous dumpling skin was on the thicker side and had a nice, chewy texture.
|Quintessential breakfast food to me is plain congee accompanied by deep fried dough. Usually, I can only order congee when I'm with a large group because it can be quite filling, especially with all that deep fried dough!|
|This version of rice noodle roll-wrapped crispy dough was surprisingly refined and delicious! Sometimes, this dim sum dish can be a real disappointment when the execution misses the mark. However, I'd definitely order this again in the future.|
|I wished for more filling in these deep fried shrimp dumplings with salad dressing. I should really stop ordering so much fried food!|
|I ordered these pan fried meat and veggie dumplings for my boyfriend so I didn't try any. I wasn't terribly enticed- they looked awfully greasy, and the dipping vinegar had a strangely bright hue.|
Egg tarts are my favourite desserts when it comes to dim sum. These miniature tarts weren't spectacular, but good enough to satisfy my egg tart craving.
