If you are like me, always wake up late and do not have time to enjoy dim sum breakfast, now you have a chance to enjoy it during lunch hour. From 1-Oct-2013 until 30-Nov-2013, Golden Phoenix 金凤楼 at Equatorial Hotel Penang is pleased to offer you dim sum lunch from 12pm – 2.30pm. Did I mention that it is semi buffet lunch?
Dim Sum – a breakfast I like to enjoy. Recently, I was told that there is a new Dim Sum restaurant at Sungai Petani with new “order then cook” concept – Harbour Palace 港湾皇庭. Without further adieu, we gave this new restaurant a try.
“Master Huang”, a label telling you which chef prepared this dish so that you can complain to the right chef in case the food suck. This is one of the uniqueness I found in Xuan Xin – a new restaurant (opposite of SenQ store) opened in Queensbay Mall.
1 x Siew Mai, 1 x Har Kao, 1 x Fish Ball, 1 x Lor Mai Kai (alike), and 1 x Pot of Tea. How much for the bill, you guess?
My rich friend bought a new Honda City and would like to try long distance drive so I took this opportunity to travel down to Ipoh with my friend. We started at 5am from Penang with the purpose of arriving there early for dim sum. Since my friend was first time there, we choose Foh San 富山 as it had better environment and we arrived there at 7am.
Ahhhh~ finally a delicious egg tart in dim sum restaurant! The filling was thick, sweet, fragrant, and shining. The skin was like puff skin and wouldn’t mess all over the table. At 8am, all egg tarts were finished.
Usually I will go back hometown on Friday. If not, then I stay overnight in Penang and go for jogging the next morning. Recently got many :ghost: so if you asked me what I did on Saturday morning – dim sum. Getting bored of those commercialized dim sum restaurants, I searched around and found this old dim sum restaurant – Aik Hoe Restaurant 益和茶楼 (N05°25.076′, E100°20.166′) at Carnovon Street, George Town, Penang.
After having bak kut teh, I have a walk at a jogging place in Petaling Jaya before meeting with friends at Tai Thong Dim Sum restaurant. The different between KL and northern people is that they usually have dim sum late. Around 10am, you most probably have to queue until PLUS highway for dim sum in Ipoh. In KL, people still wearing pajamas to restaurant.
Last Saturday, I alone traveled all the way down to Kuala Lumpur to attend my friend’s wedding. It was an evening event but I started my journey from Penang at 4am, so that I could reach Ipoh at 6am to enjoy dim sum :evilsmile: Previous I had visited Foh San. Now it is time to visit the restaurant opposite of it – Ming Court.
Gong Xi Fa Cai! :gongxi2:
Chinese used to settle all debts before Chinese New Year, but not for my case. I have too many restaurant reviews in buffer, such as this one. As you may already aware, I went to Malacca for holiday last Xmas holiday. We departed at a whoppy 4am from Penang. You may think that we gone crazy, but actually we wanna pass by Ipoh for a Dim Sum breakfast before we continue our journey (We knew that it will be ultra mega crowded as early as 7:30am). As long as Ipoh is concerned, there are two restaurants worth considering – Foh San (富山) and Ming Court (明阁). We plan to “eat double” that morning but sadly Ming Court is closed on Thursday.
