In Dim Sum Heaven


I love Dim Sum. I loveeeeeeee Dim Sum. I loooovvveeeeeee Dim Sum. Okay, I love Dim Sum so much so that I've been frequenting this particular shop every weekend for the past 1 month or more. This is the nearest I could get compared to my favourite Dim Sum in Ipoh such as Foh San and Ming Court. You see, I couldn't afford going to Lai Po Heen at MO every weekend for good Dim Sum so I had to resort to the normal dim sum outlets.

Oh how do I love thee? Let me count the ways....

This particular outlet has been opened for 3 months and it's really popular because there is another outlet behind the row of shop houses that served dim sum as well but lack in taste and quality. I was thinking maybe I should keep this secret heaven to myself so that no more blog readers will be flooding this place but then again, someone might have recommended it earlier so wth?!! Good things must be shared right?

My fav classic Prawn Dumpling, Porridge, Siew Mai and HK Chee Cheong Fun

They say, to test whether the outlet is serving good dim sum, one must try the dim sum classic dishes like those that I love - siew mai, har kaw, cha siew pau and lo mai kai. From these few dishes, you'll know whether this outlet is worth going or not. So far all these dishes passed the test of my tastebuds. The prawns in the prawn dumplings are big and succulent. They're really a must! The pricing is quite reasonable. For about RM17-18 per person, you can eat quite a hearty meal.

They do serve very special dim sum like fried durians and fried cempedaks. I didn't try them but my aunt did and she said it was nice. How come I eat there so many times and no one introduce them to me? I don't look like I eat durians meh?


This Jin Xuan Hong Kong outlet is situated at SS22/19 Damansara Jaya around Atria Shopping Mall and same row as the GSC office. It's really packed on weekends and the best thing is, those on the waiting list must stand outside the shop so that patrons eating inside can have their peace when eating without being stared and looked at by impatient people.

WARNING: Now, don't go there ok? I don't want to queue.

Have you tried the egg tart from Canton-i in 1Utama? The best egg tart I've ever tasted!

There's also the most blog about dim sum place Hong Kee over there.

-eiling- said...

Foongpc: It's a corner coffeeshop beside Super Kinta market in Ipoh. Gotta go there before 9.30am to get your hands on some egg tarts.

Simon: Hong Kee tastes crappy to me.

Their filling is tasty and better than most dim sum in Malaysia but if can have thinner skin will be perfect.

Anon: It's definitely worth waiting - one of the bests affordable dim sum available in town.

Standard dropped. Expensive & mediocre. I wonder why still so crowded. Herd mentality?
