Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - Oriental Pavilion, for the BEST dim sum in Kuala Lumpur

For sheer variety and tastewise, there's no beating the Oriental Pavilion which, IMO, is the BEST dim sum spot in the whole of Kuala Lumpur.

What we ordered today:
1) "Loh mai kai" - steamed glutinous rice with abalone mushroom, pork and chicken
2) "Wu kok" mushroom-and-pork-filled taro fritters
3) "Cheung fun" with shrimp
4) Shrimps, mushrooms and carrot dumplings
5) Shrimps-and-chives dumplings
6) "Har-kau" - shrimp dumplings
7) Shrimps-and-spinach dumplings
8) "Siu-mai" - pork-and-shrimp dumplings
9) "Cha siu bao" - steamed BBQ pork buns
10) Egg tarts
11) Braised seafood and crisp egg noodles

Everything tasted absolutely delicious, but especially items (4) and (7). I'm not quite enamoured with Item (11) though, as I thought the noodles were a bit chewier than I'd expected, and the dish lacked the subtlety of better-prepared versions I'd had in top Cantonese restaurants in Singapore, Hong Kong, or even its KL rivals like the Ming Room (Bangsar SC) and Oversea (Jalan Imbi).
