The Suzhou Style Crispy Eel, stacked high in a pretty noodle basket and crowned with crispy meat floss and sugary strands, tasted as good as it looks.

While we tend to relate afternoon teas with scones, sandwiches and cakes, it is a nice change to savour dim sum bites in afternoon teas as well. Dorsett Grand Subang’s Piano Lounge is jazzing up their afternoon teas with a dim sum affair.
The value-for money promotion of An Afternoon Dim Sum Affair offers a set of dim sum and dessert treats for 2 persons at the price of RM68 nett for the set. Served at the casual lounge of the hotel, it’s a place to unwind with light snacks and beverages.
A basket of steamed dim sum filled with Steamed Prawn Dumplings with Coriander and Steamed Siew Mai ‘Emperor’ Style proved that classic favorites will always remain a constant crowd please when it comes to dim sum. These Muslim-friendly morsels of dumplings have a nice balance of flavours and textures.
