A Little Dim Sum Place, SS2

>> Sunday, June 20, 2010

Venue: A Little Dim Sum Place, SS2, Petaling Jaya
Occasion: Gathering of friends
Overall comment: Not the place for proper, authentic dim sum. It's more like a youngster's fast-food kinda dim sum place minus the piping hot, steamed dim sum, pushed on a cart. Like it or not, this place has its constant flow of crowd! I'm amazed...
Halal: No

Total bill = RM42.65 (inclusive of Chinese tea for 3 persons & service tax)

It was one of those random weekends where 3 friends just gathered for breakfast. Not knowing where to go, we just headed to a nearby dim sum restaurant that we've never been before. Some place with air-conditioner is always preferred, but after considering the quality of the food that we had, we may not go there another time (it's just a personal preference)...

A Little Dim Sum Place is very easily located as it's smacked right at the heart of the busy SS2 (PJ) area. It's near the police station, beside Maybank, facing the field near the morning market, so I doubt you'll miss it.

We're just very selective young ladies when it comes to food. To us, this is more like a fast-food dim sum place, than the usual dim sum restaurants with carts carrying piping-hot steamed dim sum being pushed around the tables (which we much prefer). Perhaps that's what the owner intended this place to be (since its name is "A LITTLE Dim Sum Place") - a small place where substantial variety of dim sum are served *shrugs* :)

Nevertheless, here's what we had for some light breakfast (mind you, because of the price, we shared everything...hahaha...):

Porridge with Century Eggs & Minced Pork (RM2.70/bowl)
To be honest, it's a rather small bowl of porridge. The consolation is that there were century eggs in the porridge & some minced pork as well. Taste-wise, it's nothing to shout about.

Prawn dumpling (RM4.50/basket)
Thank goodness the prawns were fresh. If not, we would cry "foul"! Hahaha...yes, yes, we're picky eaters. I won't want to pay RM1.50 for a dumpling with prawns that aren't fresh! The dumpling's skin was slightly too thick though...

Siu Mai (RM3.80/basket)
Rather generous portion of prawns in a meat dumpling...!

Scallop Dumpling (RM6.00/basket)
Rip-off. Scallop was over-cooked & in our humble opinion, it isn't worth paying RM2 for a so-called scallop dumpling that doesn't satisfy. Much room for improvement!

Rice Noodle with BBQ Pork (RM3.80/serving)
This wasn't too bad albeit being too salty for our liking. Somehow, the SS2's Medan Selera offers a much better version of this "Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun". This (rice noodles) wasn't smooth enough.

Banango Prawn Fritter (RM6.00/serving)
We thought this sounded rather interesting, so we ordered it. The name tells it all: Banana-Mango Prawn Fritters - hmm...the taste of bananas over-powered the mangoes. If you enjoy something sweet & salty at the same time, you may want to try this. It's quite costly though...

Eggplant Stuffed with Fish Paste (RM4.00/serving)
SS3's Yong Tau Foo stall serves better stuffed eggplant!

Steamed Pork Ribs with Yam (I forgot the price)
Too small a portion & we hardly ate any yam. We felt that the dish had too much 5-spice powder, which somehow ruined the natural taste & fragrance of the yam & pork ribs.

maybe the boss had a bad day :)
I'd been here twice and both times my experiences were quite good! All the dishes were rather fresh & not that salty (Jenn doesn't like salty stuff).
I reckon that their dim sum is better compared to Hung Kee in D'sara Jaya or Section 19 :) but not as good as Jin Xuan
Try Kong Mah Dim Sum at Jalan Public in Sungai Buloh New Village

->Henry: It's quite hidden from the main road, so you may not have noticed it :) It's a "little" dim sum place after all :D

->Leo: Really?? Hmm...maybe la..or perhaps we're just very picky cos we really prefer our dim sum & expected the dim sum there to be served piping-hot on push-carts! :) Thanks for your recommendation...will try it someday (hopefully soon)!
