Lotus Root with Fish Paste

Grand Imperial is one of my favourite dim sum place in KL; you’ll see us stuffing ourselves silly with dim sum when the pay cheque’s out. During days when moolah runs low, we  resort to our favourite neighbourhood dim sum restaurant Jin Xuan.

My colleagues have raved about the food, and one of them even held his wedding reception here! We took their words for it and dropped by one morning. There are no turning back ever since. Usually we are here early to enjoy a quiet morning sipping Chinese tea and reading newspaper, just before the crazy crowd, otherwise known as the lunch crowd, comes in.

Lotus Root with Fish Paste. We were all enticed by the name so I put a big tick on the order sheet. I love the crunchy texture of the lotus root. The fish paste was really smooth and springy too.

The gun tong gao 灌汤饺 (RM12) is probably one of the most expensive dim sum item in the menu but it was worth every single cents. The huge dumpling was filled with a generous amount of pork meat, shark fin stripes and dried scallops. The soup was so clear and so sweet that it’s almost like a sin if you can’t finish em’ all.

Xiao Long Bao 小龙包. The broth within was sweet and flavorful but the skin was too thick for my liking.

Not to be missed is the fame Century Egg and Shredded Pork Porridge. The congee has a viscous and velvety smooth texture and it was neither too thick nor watery. Even KampungBoy who hates congee gave his two thumbs up, another exception being Mui Kee from Hong Kong.

Stir Fried Raddish Cake with XO Sauce.  Delightfully flavourful but not too oily.

A meal for two will usually cost RM50 – RM70 but I’m not complaining given that the dim sum items are made to order and things are less chaotic here, i.e. no table hogging and no fighting for dim sums from the pushing carts.

    Yay, the served Gun Tong Gao, which is quite rare at dim sum places here in KL. The one that I tasted at Jade Crystal is disappointing so it’s good to hear that this place serve them good. For RM70, it’s worth it coz there’s no crowd and no sweaty/smoking uncle!

  10. Funnily enough, just the otr day someone i was asking for dim sum recommendations actually told me abt this plc. Though I had a bad experience here be4, I would like to go back to try their dim sum since there had been two separate parties who ranked it highly palatable.
