Restoran Lip Sin Red Tea House, Penang

This is probably one of the best shop/mall style dim sum serving customers around Bayan Baru and Gelugor area for the longest time. 

Though it's not as good as the Dim Sum's trinity of the Ipoh's Ming Court, Foh Shan and Yoke Fook Moon, Red Tea House has its attractions like the Fish Head Player and the Chicken Bao on a mantou slice. 

The Steamed Fish Head Platter was like eating Fish head noodles without the soup and noodles. The taste was concentrated, intense and the meat was fresh. It was a Jenahak head with a lot of flesh. A tiny complaint - not enough head! 

The rest of the platters were the regular dim sum of Har Kou variety, Siew Mai and fish balls. The prawns, pork and fish paste, were good enough for me though a tad sweet. 

Overall, a good eat and relaxation for the tired and those in need of a quick and fulfilling bite.
