Dragon Inn Dim Sum 龍軒港式點心 @ Alam Damai, Cheras

  • Sumo

Where is your usual dim sum place? I used to frequent to Jing Xuan in Kuchai Lama, but I came across a better one now – Dragon Inn Dim Sum in Alam Damai, Cheras. Plus point, it is located very near to my house.

Opens daily from 8am onwards, this has become my usual yum cha place with parents. Their one-page menu offers a selection of Hong Kong dim sum. It may seem not much variety but it has all you need to satisfy your dim sum cravings. Dim sum here is served “steam-to-order”, so be prepared to wait a while if the restaurant is packed.

Soft Egg Yolk Bun 香滑奶王包 (Rm 5.7)
Love the egg yolk custard as its sweetness was minimal. However, the bun’s texture was too sticky (in between teeth) to my liking.

Pork Cheung Fun 叉燒腸粉 (Rm 5.7)
Fairly thin Cheung Fun, layered with lots of char siu and drenched in the light sauce. The sauce was really something, simply light yet aromatic.

I love everything being served over here especially the Shrimp Dumplings and its soup, Siu Mai, Chives Dumplings, Fried Bean Curd Rolls, Shanghai Dumplings and many more. However, the bun’s texture is sticky to my liking; prefer the texture that has chewiness in it. Each plate of dim sum priced between Rm 5.5 to Rm 7.7, pretty reasonable for what you get in terms of quality and flavours. Usually I will spend about Rm 90 for a total of 12 dishes that is enough for 4 of us. We will normally bring our own tea leaves and they charge Rm 1 per head for tea.
