Dim Sum Hunt on Mother’s Day



1st Location: Din Tai Fung

Let’s see.. On the menu we have dumplings, xiu long pao, combo of dumplings + xiu long pao, la mian with dumplings (You get the picture). To give them credit, they have other dishes but not meeting the objective of the day which is Dim Sum!! Everyone on the table was sheepishly giving some eye signal to leave for another restaurant. After some wink wink we all sneaked out. Blushing

2nd Location: Canton-I

The menu looks a bit more promising with more choices and we know we made a right decision of changing location albeit the embarrassed moment earlier.

Lucky for them we were entertain by this open kitchen because the service was so SLOW~. It was like a game to catch the attention of a waiter.

When we finally got hold of the waiter, we ordered some Dim Sum, Carp Fishball Porridge, Chee Cheung Fun, and their famous ‘Char Siew Siew Yuk Wantan Mee’. When ordering it is frustrating that a quarter of the menu was not available or we have to wait at least 30 minutes for certain dishes.

Dim Sum and everything else was just Okay. Too pricey to enjoy more.
However, the ‘Char Siew Siew Yuk Wantan Mee’ was way fantastic. Totally recommended. Not much fat on the char siew and siew yuk, the mee was ‘boink boink’ and the black sauce has it’s own signature taste like no other. Look at the ‘fight’ and smiling faces.

For dessert, we have Koong Woh Tong Herbal Jelly.

Still feeling dissatisfied and craving for more Dim Sum…

Location 3: Koo Hiong, Taman Connaught. Taken when driving at 60km/h:    

Hahah I know it is very difficult to see so:

Finally, hah~ The real Dim Sum. Cheap but quality is still not as good as the Dim Sum Seong Kee at a corner lot at “Jalan Arif 1” near CIMB bank.

  1. There's 1 very famous dim sum shop at uptown, nearby hc's office. The quality and taste is above average, price is decent. Open till night...we should try it out next time.

  2. The shop name is "Jin Xuan Hong Kong Dim Sum 锦选".
