My parents have been wanting to eat at Mouth Restaurant for years, but never got the opportunity. So it was just pure serendipity when, on my mom's birthday, we chanced upon Mouth Restaurant in City Square Mall. 

Now, I had never heard of Mouth Restaurant before this, but I'm glad I do now. The food is absolutely fantastic, especially their dim sum. Any 4 dim sum items is SGD $19.80, and is just bursting with flavour. Their Har Gao Shrimp Dumplings is packed full of fresh prawns, and their Steamed Pork Ribs With Pumpkin had a depth of taste from the pumpkin slices it was steamed with. 

Mouth Restaurant had a special dish that weekend, which was Roasted Belly of Pork Special. I understand it's not a regular item on the menu, but my parents just loved it. Crispy skin, and not overly fatty or oily, it was served with a side of mustard. Dipping roast pork belly into mustard might seem weird, as the normal dipping sauce is usually savoury or sweet soy, but the mustard worked quite well. 

We also tried a Mouth Restaurant specialty, the Crispy Yam Ring With Mixed Fruits, which was filled with tropical fruits and a sweet reduced citrus sauce. Quite good, and the yam was densly packed and filling. 

Popular items on the menu do sell out fast on the weekends though.

The service is very efficient here, and they like to clear your plates quickly. 

I like the ambience, and the way they used oriental partitions to seperate out the small restaurant space. Also, note the lights at the front of the restaurant... They're made to look like dim sum steamer baskets!

Will love to visit again.
