Tri Colours

During working days, I have been to this eatery 3 times with my co-workers but I won't be eating here anymore because I have been to Taiwan frequently to eat the delicious food there so I prefer to eat local food during lunch nowadays. I was surprised when my order turned out to be the above - MYR10.90+ 6% GST = about MYR11.60 - an amount which I think could be better spent elsewhere.

I have eaten the soup version before and this time I wanted to order the same thing but it seems that I wrote down the wrong item number on the order chit. My mistake so I had to eat them.

The meaning of the 3 colours, The green dumpling does not contain any meat. It has tofu, mushrooms, green vegetables as its filling instead.

These dumplings were just steamed, not grilled like gyoza. The skin is quite thin and I prefer the skin to be thick and chewy. The filing for the chicken dumpling (white) is too soft and finely minced so I like it the least. The other two were just average, not worth ordering again but vegetarians wanting to eat dumplings could order the green one.

  1. I had steamed ones too, in my blogpost tomorrow - 6 for RM5 but of course, not so colourful and the filling's not as nice as these as well...plus the skin was thick and chewy, probably the way you'd like it, not me. :(

    1. I think the ones you had were boiled. I read your post and you are right. I will like those - the skin looks thick and delicious!

  4. they actually look good to me, especially when I see their colors, kind of appetizing actually, haha.. but errr, you are true and I agree with you, surely more delicious (and authentic) and even cheaper having these so called (localized) Taiwanese food in Taiwan..

    1. Not sure cheaper or not but definitely more delicious when eating them in Taiwan.

    1. Gyoza is never chewy, those that I ate before in Japan and here.

  6. Actually I felt this from your previous post already: If I see a Taiwanese restaurant that openly declare "Malaysian origin", I will already avoid them like the plague...

  7. I actually prefer those dumplings that are pan-fried on one side, not just steamed.....but I do like them with thin skin though :)

    1. That means you like gyoza because wor tip/guo tie/ pot stickers usually have thick skin.

  9. Looks pretty good actually. If only they'd arranged it a bit nicer on the plate, will look like the menu picture.
