    • Delight in dim sum

      By FAZLEENA AZIZ

      PENANG VILLAGE,
      Lot 8 & 9, Level 3, Great Eastern Mall,
      No. 303, Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.
      Tel: 03-4257 1698
      Business Hours: 11am to 11pm daily; dim sum available from 11am to 5pm.
        

      FANCY some dim sum, made the traditional way by hand? Just head to the Penang Village in Great Eastern Mall, Kuala Lumpur. 

      Penang Village serves all types of local Malaysian food as well as Penang Nyonya and Chinese cuisines. 

      It offers an extensive range of dishes, including fish, prawns, soft-shell crab, squid, poultry and tofu, as well as soups and desserts. There are vegetarian dishes, too. 

       

      Meaty mouthfuls: Steamed Chicken Dumpling.

      Among the outlet’s signature dishes are Penang Char Kuey Teow, Heh Bee Butter Prawn, Two Style Kailan and Penang Assam Laksa.  

      The outlet’s black-and-white-themed decor gives diners a comfortable feeling as they enjoy a hearty meal. 

      However, it is the fresh ingredients used in all its cooking that makes Penang Village stand out from other outlets.  

      The outlet’s current Dim Sum promotion is an additional treat for customers wanting the best from the menu. 

      Dim sum chef Chin Woo Loong said most outlets served frozen and ready-made dim sum. 

       

      Signature dish: The Salted Egg Prawn is available on the a la carte menu.

      At Penang Village, the chefs pay attention to the details in preparing all the ingredients and making the products, which takes an hour and a half.  

      Chin said they followed the traditional way of making the dim sum, so that they looked nice and had a better texture compared with the those made using machinery. 

      “What we are offering during the promotion is cheaper prices, compared with buying the items from the a la carte menu.  

      “The quality of the dim sum is maintained as we do not compromise on the freshness of the ingredients in all of our dishes,” he said. 

       

      Comfortable feel: The outlet’s decor has a black-and-white theme.

      He also said the feedback on the dim sum from most customers was positive. 

      Choose from a variety of steamed and deep-fried dim sum, featuring Steamed Chicken Dumplings, Steamed Shrimp Dumplings, Steamed BBQ Chicken (Pau), Steamed Fish Ball, Steamed Beancurd Rolls, Steamed Chicken Feet, Golden Prawn Dumpling, Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken, Chicken & Century Egg Porridge, Seafood & Chicken Dumpling, Fried Carrot Cake with Bean Sprouts, Deep Fried Mango Roll with Shrimp, Prawn Dumplings with Mayonnaise, Deep Fried Beancurd Roll, Deep Fried Taro Yam Dumplings, Baked BBQ Chicken Pastry, Baked Egg Tart, Deep Fried Radish Cake, Deep Fried Sesame Balls and Deep Fried Spring Rolls. 

      Desserts include Durian Roll, Fresh Mango Pudding, Sago Cream with Fresh Mango, Whole Peanut Cake, Blueberry Pudding served with Ice Cream, Pandan Coconut Cake, Red Bean Cake and Lotus Seed Pancake. 

      The promotion offers two options, with eight items priced at RM29.90 (set recommended for two to three persons) and 14 items priced at RM49.90. 

      The promotion is available only from 3pm to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

    • Dimsum buffet for below $20

      The traditional dim sum of 30 items at Peach Garden are tasty enough and value for money. -TNP

    • Teahouse by Tung Lok used to have, but they shut down already, I would say it was one of the best.

      Seriously, how much dim sum can one eat? Nowadays I just drop by Victor's Kitchen at sunshine plaza, can eat my fill for 2 pax at 30+ dollars.

    • If you not for bad QC, avoid the dimsum buffet at Mirama Hotel.  Even the food centre dimsum taste better than that.

      I heard quite a bit from people that their food is not nice.

       That was why we changed our mind to go there for dimsum buffet.   Went to REd stone at Chin Swee Road.

      Red star is it instead of red stone??

      Dim sum at Yum Cha is the best, many varieties and the price is cheap... but too bad only on weekdays then its buffet...

      The one at zhou zhuang is not bad too.. quite nice, and you must try their char siew puffs, pipping hot and delicious.

      Another one i would recommend would be the one at the peach garden. Personally I find it to be okay.. but alot of people says its quite nice. I only find the egg tarts, char siew buns and the porridge to be nice.

      Go for the one at red star, though its not buffet, its very delicious. Traditional style of cart pushing and ordering.

      The more high end one would be the one at fullerton hotel. But i think that this one you must make advance booking like several weeks before.

      Typo error, it is REd Star.    Went there, taste so so only, food not fresh.    Service is very very slow.    I make that my first and last time there.

      I have not tasted the dimsum at Peach Garden yet.    I love the dimsum at Crystal Jade.

      Yumcha dimsum is nice.  Love the one with mango filling.   yummy

      No buffet, they are the old school type, push carts, but honestly, you will look for the cart instead of they look for you. Prices per dim sum dish stuck from 2 bucks plus or so.

      dim sum so so only, not fresh.   Having heard so much about it, my first visit there turned out to be a disappointment.    I read negative comments about it before I went.  For that sort of prices, I pay a bit more eat at Crystal Jade better.   Even the Swee Choon at Jln besar dimsum taste better than Red Star
