|Red Star Restaurant Outram still |
dishes out dim-sum on trolleys
You can take your picks from the trolleys -- fares like curry puffs, kueh-kueh, coffee and tea. Simple fares -- but it meant that staff could take a short break and yak around the trolley. Staff bonding in those days was simple but effective :) It was those trolley sessions where I learnt about how one pretty colleague avoided a die-hard admirer by taking long routes home; how one knew her boyfriend and was getting married (she even invited me to her wedding though I was a temp, and a newbie!) You got a feeling of being in a family.
I am not sure whether such trolleys still make their rounds at work places. (Certainly not at mine!) But I know for sure you can still find them loaded with dim-sum, at Red Star Restaurant at Outram (Chin See Road, near Manhattan House). This restaurant was founded by the "four heavenly kings" (in cuisine), one of them being Lau Yoke Pui who had passed away. They are probably among the very few which still have such trolleys.
I give five stars for such trolleys of joy.
