Pullman Bangsar ‘s Dimsum

 

Pullman Hotel excels in a variety of dim sum dishes. Dining at the Oriental Chinese Cusine is a lovely way to get acquainted with Chinese cuisine. A must-try is the Dried Scallop Siu mai (RM 16) with caviar on top, which is executed to perfection with the popping from the egg roe and tender juicy meat providing a nice contrast in texture. Don’t missed out the Fresh Prawn Siu Mai (RM 15), and the delicious Steamed Shanghai Dumplings (RM 12). And though lacking in the most authentic ingredient, the fresh feelings in it retain the juiciness, lending a sweet finish to the savory broth that is very perfectly enveloped inside the skillfully wrapped parcel. With a little bit of vinegar and the ginger strips that are infused with vinegar, every bite explodes with delicious sensation in the mouth.

Another specialty- Cheung Fun with Yu Zha Gui (RM 12) is the delightful steamed rice roll wrapped around crispy yau char kueh (fried fritters), where the succulent and silky smooth cheong fun acts like a protective layer to provide a little moist to the crispy yau char kueh. This one is authentic and rarely available at a lot of places.

Other steamed basket showcased Mui Choi Duck bun (RM 13), Signature Pearl Glutinous Rice wrapped with Lotus Leaf , and the ever irresistible Green Tea Bun with Salted Egg Yolk Custard Cream (RM 12). Everybody loves watching the gooey custard filling flow generously as we peel open the steamed bun. Matcha flavour maybe nonexsiting despite the intense green but the rich fillings are to die for.

Signature Pearl Glutinous Rice wrapped with Lotus Leaf (RM 15) deserve a lot of limelight and recommendation because the rice were cooked so perfect within time for the rice to stick together without turning mushy and soft, and intensely infused with flavours from the leaves.

 

12.1.Oriental Chinese Cuisine @Pullman's Hotel Dim Sum

 

For something more Fusion, the use of modern Western ingredients becomes a creation that is easily a crowd favorite. All dishes are served piping hot and the accompanying dipping sauces becomes a perfect canvas for the basket of delicately made upon ordered dimsum to shine. Get your meal off to the perfect indulgence with their ample selections of dimsum with plenty of truffle – a luxury way to get the appetite going. This one is the Black Truffle Shrimp Dumpling (RM 18).

 

13.Oriental Chinese Cuisine @Pullman's Hotel Dim Sum

 

And speaking of luxury and good ingredients, we also had the Steamed Shrimp Dumpling with Bird’s Nest (RM 20). Bird nest has always been known for the nutritional value and beauty benefits so although not contributing much to the flavour, to savour this in dim sum isn’t exactly a bad idea.

 

17.Oriental Chinese Cuisine @Pullman's Hotel Dim Sum

 

Prices are reflective of its local and sometimes can be on the higher end the spectrum. This dim sum features authentic items with a touch of contemporary fusion, and is completely halal too. This affair is a crowd puller and can be very popular especially for cozy gatherings. Best place to enjoy delicious dim sum with very comfort dinning and impeccably warm and pleasant hospitality.

 

14.Oriental Chinese Cuisine @Pullman's Hotel Dim Sum

 

This is absolutely halal Cantonese fare at its best with service being unobtrusive as it promises privacy with the spacious table arrangements. Click HERE to watch this appearing on my vlog. And be prepared to pay a reasonable average price of RM 15 per basket.

Made to Order All-You-Can-Eat Dim Sum Buffet @ Renaissance Kuala Lumpur

 

Dynasty Restaurant at the Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel is currently serving piping hot baskets of their made-to-order all-you-can-eat Dim Sum (non-halal) at RM88nett per person. Making all the dim sum from scratch daily, Chef Chong Foo Tuck who has over 30 years of culinary experience uses only high quality and fresh ingredients to ensure only superior Dim Sum with great taste are produced in his kitchen. Choices range from steamed, baked and deep fried to healthy congee variety. Ordinary congee made lavish with ingredients like mini abalone and slices of fresh fish.

 

1.Dim Sum Buffet @ Renaissance Kuala Lumpur

 

Their version of xiao long bau, was comforting when served hot inside a soup plate. These Shanghainese dumplings, sometimes called ‘soup dumplings’, are filled with both filling and juicy broth but is not something I’d advice to pop in the mouth at one go. Anyway, their thick dumpling skin would be a little discouraging as well. Immersing in superior stock, these steamed parcels were not as impressive as those fried parcels. Both their signature chive biscuit and fried dumpling just keeps reminding you that you’re peckish – the crunch and crispy was super addictive. It was delicious.

Skip past plain steamed rice rolls- the quivering cheung fun with dough fritters inside is not as impressive as their fried dimsums. But steaming Har Kao and fried Carrot cake were delicious.

Dim Sum & Co @ Solaris Dutamas (outside Publika)

 

With so much food around us, conventional dimsum has got to step up to the game if they are competing to be outstanding but whether it’s dimsum dare devil or classically play-it-safe, Dim Sum & Co. at Solaris Dutamas (outside Publika) has it all. Pair your steamed or fried parcel assortments of delicious bites with beer. That’s right, beer with dim sums- that’s the house specialty, prepared by a line-up of diligent kitchen crew and served upon order. Housing two names under a roof, Dimsum and Co would serve your hot steaming baskets and crispy fried or baked indulgences; whereas the Beer Factory Express serves few selection of booze to pair with these Dimsum.

 

1.Dim Sum & Co @ Solaris Dutamas (outside Publika)

 

By comparison, the décor and menu are fairly contemporarily vintage looking and a sufficient spread that is at the same time not intimidating, making dining very relaxing compared to conventional dim sum restaurant that runs in the manner of a mass-market outlet. Of course, traditionalist would still love their dim sum to go with hot brewed tea in pots. But if you like that sweet finishing, I strongly recommend their slightly pricy Milk Tea (RM 9.90).

4.Dim Sum & Co @ Solaris Dutamas (outside Publika)

Moving on to the hot steaming baskets, they’ll take some time to arrived but hey , that’s all part of the package of leisure – you get booze and freshly made to order dim sums served steaming hot all day long. Starting with conventional dumplings that’s a must have otherwise do not represent dim sum meal- Siew Mai (RM 7.90). Then there is this innovative creation that replaces the steamed pork rib, instead the bony chicken wing parts were the clever substitution.

Every dim sum place ought to have a certain basket that captures the attention of netizens, I supposed right here would be that adorable looking Molten Charcoal Bun (RM 8.90). This serves 2 pieces of molten salted egg custard encased in a charcoal bun and the cute way to eat it is to poke a tiny hole and squeeze the custard through.

If gimmicks doesn’t sell to you then you are like me, and the thing I am most impressed is some of the texture of these pork free dim sum. Diced Onion Bun (RM 7.90) didn’t wow me with the pan seared outer layer instead, I was impressed by the texture so close to actual pork, pretty much reflecting on meticulous preparation when chicken ligamens were cleverly picked to mimic the bouncy chew from actual pork. Same goes to the Tasty Chicken Ball (Rm8.90) that is servedwith mayo dip. How cool is that?

Everything is made to pair very well with beer but the brine and more robust flavouring is even better on their deep fried and baked dim sum. Hands down to that Cheese Chicken & Onion Puff (RM 8.90) and I can assure you that this 2 pieces serving of baked flaky charcoal pastry field with chicken onion and cheese is not sufficient.

Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

 

Grand Shanghai Banquet at Seri Petaling here is a perennial favourite with yum cha fans. Especially when it is decorated to resemble classic canto mansion, with huge ancient Chinese wooden door to greet and welcome diners.

 

1.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

2.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

Featuring some of the more interesting dim sum on offer, like la mian, congee and things like Claypot fish head. I am a sucker for anything soupy, but the version here gets better, rich and flavourful with plenty of mushrooms and vegetables.

 

3.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

 

Fish served separately and cooked on portable stove with stock cooked into velvet rich and delicious starter. There’s good variety in general, with quite a few decent staple options like porridge and noodles or rice.

 

4.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

5.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

6.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

 

Their dumplings in general are soft, cloud-like and well made. Chef Special Dumpling (RM 9.80) and Xiao Long Bao with yellow wine (RM 9) are both chef recommended. We were expecting and looking forward to splitting at their soft white seams and spilling their sweet juicy insides, but that didn’t quite happen.

 

7.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

8.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

 

Steamed Pork Rib with Dumpling (RM 8.50) turns out to be regular steam pork rib we are all familiar with (not sure which part of it resembles dumpling) and this one have no tauchu (fermented beans) to be seen.

 

9.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

 

Innovation and creativity in their dimsum is charming.Crispy Prawn Mango Wrapped in fried Vermicelli with Wasabi Dressing (RM 13.80) and Crispy Corn Flake Crusted Tuna Rolls (RM 10.80) can only meant that you’ll have to try it to find out more about this complex mix of flavours and textures.

 

10.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

11.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

 

While the floor is a wonderland of steaming dimsum baskets, the kitchen interestingly fire up Chinese dishes as well. While we are there, we tasted the Grand Shanghai Special Spicy Chicken (RM 16). Something that resembles hainanese steam chicken but with extra kick of a tinge of spiciness that is irresistibly addictive.

 

12. Grand Shanghai Banquet

 

Plenty of other favourites like fried cheong fun (rice noodle rolls) and extreme assortment dumplings make their way around, as do fragrant fried bites and baked tarts. The thing is, though, all the action is happening within the kitchen operating hours (kitchen rests from 3-5 before they run the dinner services).

Tim Ho Wan (Malaysia) @ Mid Valley Boulevard

 

After the soft opening of Tim Ho Wan last month, Tim Ho Wan celebrates their grand opening on the 18th December 2014. Standing distinctively at the boulevard in MidValley Megamall, classic dim sum is all you’ll find and while it may play safe (no ducks tongue here), the freshness of every item from their beautifully textured Steamed Spinach Dumpling with Shrimp to their crisp-layered Baked Bun with BBQ Pork is impressively astounding.

 

1.tim ho wan (5)

 

Quality and taste are top priority, using only fresh and quality ingredients, and made upon order to retain the flavour of dim sum. But these standards, combined with stellar service, come at a price: expect a bill that’s double what you’d pay in our usual dim sum restaurants. The grand opening ceremony kick started with the ribbon cutting, followed by of the lion dance to bring good luck and fortune.

 

2.tim ho wan (16)
2.tim ho wan (22)
3.tim ho wan (29)

 

Currently 5 outlets in Hong Kong and the rest at all over Asia, Malaysians are lucky to have this Michelin Star dim sum restaurant and its signature dim sums here. And with the seating on first come first serve basis, queue would be unavoidable. It is said that the first floor would be serving fine dining, making this the first ever private dining for Tim Ho Wan- a huge success with this inaugural location.

 

4.tim ho wan

 

Chef Mark and Chef Leong flew from Hong Kong to celebrate this auspicious grand opening, the 4 signature heavenly king were served alongside the other 4 dishes with the chef explaining the challenge in the making of each of these heavenly king signature dim sum.

 

5.tim ho wan (41)

 

Baked Bun with BBQ Pork (RM 10.80) is that most talk about item when it comes to Tim Ho Wan dim sum. The fact that it is not easily replicated, this one should be the must order. Pan Fried Carrot Cake (RM 9.80) showcases fresh ingredients and gourmet skills. Their team puts up redefinition of carrot cake, one that elevates from the usual that we are familiar with.

 

6.tim ho wan (45)
7.tim ho wan (46)
8.tim ho wan (54)

 

Vermicelli Rice Roll Stuffed with Pigs Liver (RM 10.80) is obviously rare and unusual to the mass since Malaysians mostly savior these rice rolls with BBQ Pork or Prawns. But, to those who accept offal, this one is a delicacy.

 

9. tim hor wan my

 

Another heavenly king item is none other than their Steamed Egg Cake (RM 7.80) – a must order if you ask me. Not many places have good steamed egg cake, nevertheless Tim Ho Wan manage to maintain and serves consistency.

The classic Pork Dumpling with Shrimp (RM 10.80),aka Siew Mai is the killer and a must order in almost every dimsum restaurants. It is no exception here as well. The generosity with the amount of pork wrapped alongside shrimp is stunning. Although not really my thing, but anyone who loves this classic dimsum would adore this one.

 

11.tim ho wan mid (2)

 

And albeit not one of their heavenly king, Steamed Spinach Dumpling with Shrimp (RM 7.80) would be the star item for most girls. The refreshing texture of spinach and sweetness of shrimp enclosed within the crystal clear dumpling skin is anytime a good replacement of poultry dimsum. Admits the classics, Tim Ho Wan also serves modern fusion in their dimsum. Wasabi Salad Prawn Dumpling (RM 10.80) with the mayo replaced by wasabi mayo for the extra kick.

 

12.tim ho wan (49)
13.tim ho wan (73)

 

If picking on tiny bites did not satisfy the bigger appetite, try the Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf. The fragrant from their leaf wrapping is a pleasant and this for sure should be able to fill you up.

 

14.thw

 

Tonic Medlar & Osmanthus Cake (RM 6.80) refreshingly washes the oil from the hefty meat intake and when served cold, is absolutely lovely and most importantly not overly sweet. I applaud them for this.

Dimsum for CNY @ Eastin Hotel PJ

 

This Chinese New Year, how about some dimsum while getting together with family members and relatives. Starting now, Ee Chinese Cuisine at the Eastin Hotel Petaling Jaya serves tantalizing and delicate pieces of dimsum to offer more joy to Year of Horse.

 

Up first was a definite mind blowing Prawn dumpling in superior clear broth. With nutritious Chinese herbs in the broth to make these wrapped tortellini a cut above ordinary sui kao. The fillings were not stingy and each piece of three served in individual pots were filled with huge and very fresh prawns.

 

1.ee eastin (1)

 

Keep up the indulgence with the Steamed Crystal Dumplings in Spicy Sour Sauce. Beautifully crafted in crystal clear skin and cleverly combining the spices and flavour of chives, garlic and chili, these dumplings were presented to please the eye and the palate the very instant it was served. The tangy spicy sauce was a good addition to the dumplings and the fillings were generously prepared with prawns.

 

3.ee eastin (5)

 

Then, tantalise the palate with Steamed Grouper Fillet and Thai Green Chili. Served straight from the steaming basket, the sourish spicy sensation from the chili easily masked any fishy aroma from the fillet if there were any to begin with. Fresh sweetness with fiery blend of chili along with the firm texture of plump slices of fish fillet was delectable and much enjoyable.

 

2.ee eastin (2)

 

When eating dimsum, I really fancy having anything with bacon and here at the Ee Chinese Cuisine, dimsum Chef Lee Kor Yew cleverly include an entire oyster along with mixture minced of pork and prawn. I would like it better if oyster is wrapped within the minced meat for the extra flavour. Having said that, the aroma and flavour of bacon was a heavenly mix with amazing texture.

 

4.ee eastin (4)

 

Back to very basic and simple dimsum, they also served the Steamed Mixed Prawn and Pork Paste nicely set on a slice of abalone mushroom. In the paste mixture was also some cilantro and chunks of water chestnuts for extra sweetness, not to mention the effect of it to the texture.

 

5.ee eastin (3)

 

The Char Siew Walnut Tart was brilliantly presented in tart shapes and beautifully topped and baked with a piece of walnut. Flaky layer on the outside for the very perfect sensation at the first bite and when reaching the fillings, I was mesmerized with the moist and juiciness from the BBQ pork fillings.

 

6.ee eastin (6)

 

When served the Deep fried Taro Dumpling with Scallop, I thought it was an interesting fuse which breakthrough tradition and ordinary standard dimsum serving. Think out of the box and create unique out of simplicity. Replacing seasoned ground meats with a whole fresh scallop was an elegant move and the light layer of crusty skin before the soft; fluff and smooth mashed taro were awesome texture in combination. Topped with tobiko mayo, it contributed moist and smoothness to this deep fried chinese pastry.

 

7.ee eastin (7)

 

Deep fried dimsums are always joyful when it comes to any yumcha session. The Deep fried Cheese Prawn Spring Roll was not much different except they also comes with melted cheese with prawn and rolled with poh piah skin and rolled with crepe layer for the extra addition of egg aroma. I would really like more cheese in this one but I figure by then it would probably be relenting to have more than one piece.

 

8.ee
Also serving was Flake crusted Black Pepper Chicken Pastry with super light and crispy flake crust on the outside and tender diced chicken pieces with black pepper and something else with a lovely portion was the Fried Cheong Fun with a luscious bed of Chinese waxed meats on top. The texture of rice rolls were great; bouncy and light and not too oily in general.

 

9.ee eastin (8)
10.ee eastin (10)

Lastly, a nourishing dessert with White Fungus and Lotus Seed Thong Shui served with Nian Gao. Served warm, sweetness was delectable and rice cake was a joy with sesame coat and garnished with shredded coconut. A dimsum yumcha session can never be anymore contented. Happy Chinese New Year.

Din Tai Fung @ The Gardens

 

1.1DSC06144

 

Famous for their Xiao Long Bao, the Din Tai Fung has already established their reputation. Selling at RM 12.30 per basket for 8 pcs, these dumplings are good as starters. Especially when eaten with the black vinegar and gingers.

 

1.Xiao Long Bao (13)
2.Xiao Long Bao (10)

 

It was very tasty because the rate of this dish out from the kitchen was really fast. That makes it fresh and delicious. The superior soup inside those dumplings was tasty and the minced pork in it has a great aroma. I try to avoid this because there were lots of oil extracted from the meat in high steaming temperature.

 

3.Xiao Long Bao (8pcs) RM 12.30@ din tai fung

 

See how the ‘sifu’s working efficiently in the kitchen.

 

3.3DSC06143
DSC06149

 

If you feel bad having so much meat, try bluffing yourself like I did with the Vegetable Pork with Soup instead. The soup was crystal clear and the vegetable inside the thin layer of wanton skin compliments the minced pork very well.

 

4.Vegetable Pork with Soup RM 11.20@ din tai fung (1)
5.Vegetable Pork with Soup RM 11.20@ din tai fung (3)

 

Since there are only the both of us, we didn’t order much. I had the Shrimp Fried Rice which is my all time favourite. Leave those fresh and large shrimps aside, the rice has got great aroma of wok, but not over heated. So it was really delicious and to my liking.

 

6.Shrimp Fried rice RM 15.50@ dtf (1)

 

Next is the Chicken Soup Noodle which happens to be the first time ordering this. Served separately, the noodle and chicken soup did amuse me a little.

 

7.Chicken Soup Noodle RM 16@ din tai fung (1)

 

The chicken soup was rich with pieces of chickens and to my liking; the soup is crystal clear too. This might have appeared to be looking rather bland but the taste was great.

 

8.Chicken Soup Noodle RM 16@ din tai fung (3)

 

The noodle also looked boring without any colour or sauce. However, the tasty soup complimented the noodles pretty well. I also love the texture of the noodle. Not too mushy but not too hard as well. It was slightly coated with sesame and fried shallot oil, and salt with a light sprinkle of spring onion.

 

9.Chicken Soup Noodle RM 16@ din tai fung (2)
10.Chicken Soup Noodle RM 16@ din tai fung

 

The general feeling along the table was really good, and returning is ascertain on regular basis while the dizzying array of dishes accustomed to be shared as well as for the solo meal. So far, the noodles are great. The Cong You Lamien sells at RM 13.50 and simplicity is the best to indulge in authentic flavours.

 

1.din tai fung 2 -cong you Lamien RM 13.50 (1)
1.2.din tai fung 2 -cong you Lamien RM 13.50 (3)

 

What may seemed dull and boring could turn out rewarding for those who like it plain. The Glass Noodle Soup (RM 13.50) is beautiful for those who prefers something light for their meal. I think it would be greater if there are some vegetables in all their noodles.

 

2.din tai fung 2 -Glass noddle soup RM 13.50 (4)

 

Lastly, the favourite part of the meal for us arrived and I was pretty happy with the desserts. The Mango Pudding has a great texture and aroma so rich you can tell it is mango even if blind folded without tasting it.

 

12.Mango Pudding RM 8.30@ din tai fung (1)
13.Mango Pudding RM 8.30@ din tai fung (3)

 

Also for desert is the Soy Dumpling for Rm 7.50. It was very much like mocha with black sesame filling that is super sweet. But then the soya complimented it well. Black sesame is slightly bitter and with the sugar’s sweetness, the soya all together made quite a good combination.
