Glamorous Restaurant – Dim sum Sundays

I feel like it is my duty to tell you that the ambitiously titled Glamorous restaurant is anything but. I don’t know what the owners were thinking. Maybe in 2003, when Glamorous opened her doors, she was an opulent venue oozing charm and decadence. The same can’t be said now!

If you haven’t already guessed, I don’t go to Glamorous for the interior design. I go for the food. The delicious, authentic food. I have only ever been on a Sunday, so I can’t tell you what happens during the week (according to review sites, it isn’t pretty), but on Sundays, Glamorous comes alive.

Diminutive ladies race around the room with hostess trolleys, overflowing with a wide variety of sexy dim sum treats. I tend to binge on the complimentary turnip cake starter, leaving less room for other dishes, then spend the rest of my meal regretting it. My favourites are the pork and prawn dumplings, the cuttlefish balls and the Cheung fun rice noodle rolls; you probably have your own dim sum favourites already – I’m sure Glamorous already creates their own version. 

I like to get a table right in the middle of the action, with enough room to fling my arm out at the fast-approaching carts of joy. That’s if I can get a table at all – be prepared for big queues on Super Sundays!
