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...
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...):
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.
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...
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!
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.
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...
SS3's Yong Tau Foo stall serves better stuffed eggplant!
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.
