What to order next time

About 5 months ago, I ate dim sum at this place and now I am back for brunch. Waited for about 5 to 10 mins before getting a table for 2. Prices shown on the menu are inclusive of GST 6% and GST is applied to the 10% service charge too.

Must order these Baked Bun with BBQ Pork - MYR10.85 (MYR11.50)

One glass of hot barley drink - MYR3.87 (MYR4.10)

Wasabi Salad Prawn Dumpling - MYR10.85 (MYR11.50)
Will not order this again as I am refraining from eating deep fried food.

Siew Mai - MYR10.85 (MYR11.50). Will definitely order this again as these taste like those siew mai I ate when i was young, bringing back pleasant memories.

Steamed Egg Cake - MYR7.83 (MYR8.30). Will order this again as I love the taste of the fragrant brown sugar used to make this cake.

Steam Spinach Dumpling - MYR7.83 (MYR8.30). The previous time I thought this was delicious but this time, I find it a bit too oily for my liking so I will not order this next time.

Tonic Medlar & Osmanthus - MYR6.79 (MYR7.20). Will not order this next time as I find it a little too sweet for my liking. 

Prawn Dumpling - MYR11.79 (MYR12.50). Will order this again as I find the fillings to be more prawns than other minced meat.

Mango Sago Pomelo - MYR8.77 (MYR9.30). Maybe I will order this again as I like to eat mangoes. The prices in brackets are inclusive of 6% GST. The total bill after service charge and GST came up to MYR92.60 for brunch for 2. We'll be back in another 5 months for I can't get enough of those BBQ buns and Steamed Egg Cakes.

  1. So cute, it's like once every 5 months kind of thing for you to dine here? The one in 1U is already open but I have yet to dine there. No queue that day but I just had lunch so I told my hubby maybe next time.

    1. They went to open in SG first before coming here. I wonder whether the menu is the same or not.

  5. Must be quite loaded to go and eat here - the har kao, usually three only, but at one third of the price. Minced meat in the filling? I thought it ought to be all prawns? Never mind if everything is so good, to die for, but at those prices, I think I'd pass.

    1. This kind of price range is normal for dim sum at nice restaurants. I believe it is even more expensive at hotels. For example the har kao I ate here at Oriental Pavilion at Jaya 33, PJ:

      http://muntalksfood.blogspot.com/2015/03/monthly-dim-sum.html

      costs MYR9++ for 3 in a basket so the price for one is roughly the same. I don't think there are any at one third (MYR4) of the price in KL anymore, not even at coffee shops.

      The har kao at some places mix minced meat with the prawns in them. I am sure you have come across some like that unless you seldom eat dim sum.

      No need to be loaded to eat this once in a while. The price of this meal is less than many things such as eating siew yuk every day. Just need to prioritize where one spend if one really want to eat this.

  8. I still have not tried yet. The last time you ate the Osmanthus cake, it wasn't too sweet for you and the steam spinach dumpling wasn't oily...oh dear, so the food is not consistent?

  15. I finally made it to this place. But it wasn't up to my expectations. :( The only thing I found special was the baked charsiew buns in your first pic. Tried a lot of other things (over-ordered a bit for 5) but didn't like them too much. Guess that was my first and last time there.

    1. I go there mainly for the baked charsiew buns and also the malai ko. How were they not up to your expectations? Taste too light? Or pieces too small?
