Since my last visit Foh San has relocated to a new and bigger builiding, which is just a stone throw’s away from their old place. The last time we had dim sum here few years ago, we had to wrestle for a table, eat under pressure since people were basically just waiting for you to finish and get off ASAP. You won’t even have time to slowly sip your cuppa tea, unless you could put on a thick skin. In all, it was not a very nice experience.
But I guess the humongous double storey restaurant that Foh San is currently occupying already solved the problem. On my way back to Penang to celebrate CNY, we had a brief stop over at Foh San for lunch. We got a table easily and service was OK, though not as prompt as it could get.
Foh San excels in their steamed dim sum, the ingredients were lovely and fresh. But the rest like fried ones need a lot of improvements, the Char Siew Sou especially. Otherwise it was an enjoyable meal, so much more pleasant than our last one here. When the atmosphere and mood are right, food does taste better.
