Kuala Lumpur - Dim Sum Options at the Han Room

klyeoh | Jan 24, 2012 08:59 PM

Han Room's that elegant Cantonese fine-dining restaurant at the swish Gardens Mall (MId-Valley). The restaurant's more renowned for its modern interpretation of Cantonese dishes, but I was there for their lunch-time dm sum instead today:
- Siu-mai and har-gau dumplings: both were over-steamed and came across as hard & chewy;
- Roast goose puffs: also over-cooked - in this case, over-baked - the filling was dry and tasteless. Disappointing really;
- Dai bao (large pork bun) was delicious. It came looking somewhat squashed, like someone's sat on it. But the flavors: sweet, savory, strong ginger and Shaoxing wine scent, nice crunchy bit of water chestnuts amidst deliciously-flavored minced pork, mushrooms, egg & scallions, was fabulous.

I need to come back here for dinner or for non-dim sum meal next time. Usually, in a Cantonese restaurant, the dim sum chefs are a separate crew from the chefs who prepare the main cooked dishes.

Extremely popular restaurant, especially for its weekend dim sum lunch, so booking ahead is advisable.
