Kuala Lumpur - Great Dim Sum at the Ming Room

klyeoh | Dec 11, 2011 12:55 AM

It's first-come-first-served at the ultra-popular Ming Room in the Bangsar Shopping Centre for its dim sum luncheon. Quality of dim sum served here is very bit as good as those you'd get in HK or Guangzhou.

What I liked:
----------------
- Har-gau
- Siu-mai
Both contained fresh, crunchy shrimps, and were perfectly-cooked.
- Siu-yoke (roast pork) was delicious, with crisp pork crackling
- Steamed "Malay" cake layered with custard-duck's yolk

What were not so impressive:
-----------------------------------------
- Cha-siu-so (baked cha-siu puffs), which lacked the buttery-flaky pastry and wine-enhanced BBQ pork filling I'd expected;
- Braised pig's intestines with tofu and peanuts in claypot, which came across as a bit bland;
- Cold dong-sui dessert with much-too-hard sea-coconut slivers, and was bland as well.
