Go All Out with A Dim Sum Extravaganza
Weekends with public holidays are all for spending time with family and friends and some food indulgence. The Emperor at Dorsett Grand Subang is offering dim sum fans an Eat-All-You-Can Dim Sum Extravaganza for the price of RM88 nett per person on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
With a featured list of over 30 selections of dainty morsels of handcrafted steamed and fried dim sum along with some Chinese specialty dishes and desserts, diners can enjoy a dim sum affair set in the grandeur of The Emperor with family and friends. The Muslim-friendly restaurant offer diners with a spacious main dining area as well as some private rooms.
Soups make good starters, especially double-boiled ones. A spoonful of the Double-Boiled Arrow Root Soup or Double-Boiled Lotus Root Soup will certainly warm up the tummy for a dim sum feast to come.
The Cold Sliced Chicken served with Jellyfish & Cucumber was a favorite of mine. Something refreshing about the chilled poached chicken roll with crunchy slivers of seasoned jellyfish and cucumber that makes my palate sense liven up.
Steamed Siew Mai, plump and bouncy, are crowned with tiny pearls of crunchy roes while the Steamed Fish Paste Dumpling is very tasty with bouncy fish paste enhanced with garlicky notes and steamed to perfection. The Steamed Bean Curd Roll was much adored by my family for its bouncy filling with nutty bean curd sheet and gravy.
One ain’t dim sum-ing if you ain’t ordering the Steamed Phoenix Feet with Black Bean... at least that what my other half said… the version here had him cleaning out those umami chicken feet with much happiness.
Now one shouldn’t miss out ordering the quintessential Char Siew Bao or Steamed Bun with BBQ Chicken. Its just that bite of fluffy bao enveloping that unctuous sweet and savory char siew filling that most relates to the joy of dim sum-ing.
The menu also has some Chinese special dishes like Stir-Fried Chicken Cube with Dried Chilies, Deep-Fried Sweet & Sour Chicken and Deep-Fried Chicken with Thai Mango Sauce.
While the Stir-Fried Chicken Cube with Dried Chilies or Kung Pao Chicken is decent, we were bowled over by the Deep-Fried Chicken with Thai Mango Sauce. The latter had crispy and juicy chicken topped with that vibrant fruity note of sweet and sour mango sauce that elevated the dish to a delicious one.
Both the Deep-Fried Prawn Roll with Cheese and Deep-Fried Yam Puff also won brownie points for essential crispy but not oily notes as well as tasty flavours. Both are sure crowd pleasers as one has prawny cheesy oozing from the crispy bean curd sheet while the other had the crispy and creamy yam filled with tasty char siew filling.
Besides Steamed Rice Rolls or Cheong Fun, there are also other carb fillers like Noodle with Shredded Chicken Hong Kong Style, Glutinous Rice with Chicken Wrapped in Lotus Leaf and Fish Fillet Porridge. The noodles were very fragrant and had been seasoned well with a nice al dente bite. The fish porridge was cooked to much creamy goodness and had generous pieces of fish in it.
Egg Tart, when made well, oozed with that lusciousness of creamy eggy custard paired with a buttery biscuit base that melt-in-the-mouth…
Other desserts include Chilled Honeydew Melon with Sago, Mango Pudding, Royal Herb Jelly and Chilled Sea Coconut with Longan.
