The Wind Blew us to Canton Bay - Northbridge

What to eat on Christmas day? My parents and siblings were overseas and abandoned Mr. T and I in Perth, so we had to fend for ourselves. We were just leaving the church from Christmas day mass and had planned to cook brunch at home. At the last minute, I just couldn't face cooking brunch and cooking for a pot-luck dinner we were going to that night. Then and idea popped into my head, DIM SUM! I haven't been in so long and I was certain at least one Chinese restaurant would be open in Northbridge. 

We made a beeline for Northbridge Chinese Restaurant, but at the last minute decided to try the relatively new Chinese restaurant next door, Canton Bay. 

Our first impression of this place was good, we were greeted and seated quickly and before we knew it the steaming trolley was at our table.


As it was just the two of us today, we tried to limit the amount of dishes we ordered. The food at Canton Bay was nice, but not the best dim sum we've had. I would still prefer Northbridge Chinese Restaurant, but the place was certainly more comfortable and the service was a lot more attentive. 

My favourite dish of the day was the deep fried squid tentacles. I loved the light batter and the flavours, it didn't feel as oily as the squid tentacles at other Chinese restaurants and the squid was not rubbery. 

The dish that I was looking forward to the most was the deep fried yam filled with pork. However, I was a little disappointed by Canton Bay's version, the yam was bland and the filling was like a ragout rather than chunky Asian style BBQ pork. 

Overall, we enjoyed our meal, but we certainly had had better dim sum. This place does have potential though and hopefully they will improve their flavours with time!
