I was happily following my aunts for a morning yum-cha at Imperial City Restaurant, Cheras Plaza, Taman Segar on one Sunday. But then, it turned out to be a not-so-satisfied-experience for me. Firstly, there was a wedding at noon, so they only allowed us to sit at the limited dining area. There were about 15 to 18 tables around. As you know, morning yum-cha is always dim sum. People would always take up hours to sit there and slowly taste their freshly brewed Chinese tea and having some dim sum(s). We had to wait for some times to be served as there were limited tables. Alright, till our turn, we ordered dim sum(s) but it turned out that we had to wait for quite some times before our dim sum(s) placed on the table. Why?! Haihz… lack of staff. And, I could see that some captains pretend to be very busy and never attended us. Iksss…
Well, thinking that dim sum(s) may tempt my nerves. But no… let’s read what I could say bout them?!
My all time favourite, Har Gau but these were not good as the skin were thick and too chewy, not smooth enough.
Xiu Mai(s) were nice too and we had few plates of these (what to do?! Cz there were not much selections to choose from).
Egg Tarts were good one with soft, smoothly eggie.
Fried Woo Gok.
This was new to me as it was stuffed with prawn instead of meat. there is a layer of cheese and wrapped up with Yam paste and then fried. Imagine the cheese leaks when served piping hot. Well, it was in my yummiest list.
We actually ordered the dried version but were served with the soup-base Gyoza. Couldn’t remember what the exact name it is but This Gyoza had a similarity with the Shanghai Xiu Loong Bao. There was broth inside the gyoza. Tasted okay~
There were some other dim sum(s) I never captured such as HK Chee Cheong Fun. It was not warmed enough when served and not smooth at all. Overall, I am dissatisfied with their services and the dim sum(s). Will I return for morning tea again? I am not sure unless they change their cooks?!
