Empire Chinese Cuisine: Sponge Cake & Dumplings

This past weekend we went to Empire Chinese Cuisine which was pretty crowded because they offered complimentary tea and 20% off for early bird dim sum.

The four of us shared 6 dishes of dim sum and were comfortably full.

 I suppose black truffle is supposed to be very fragrant but it did not enhance these dumplings. They just tasted like average vegetarian mushroom dumplings.

Steamed custard sponge cake
Overall the food was all right with the exception of the sponge cake. Usually they are steamed into one loaf instead of divided into layers like at Empire so that it is very fluffy and soft. However, this cake was too solid to be considered a spongey texture.
