a little dim sum place

it’s been a while since I last ate at A Little Dim Sum Place ((甜心点心) since it moved to SS2 from Desa Sri Hartamas. Dropped by the new outlet for some nibbles on a lazy afternoon one weekend and was pleasantly surprised to see the cozy, new look. they have revamped their menu as well, and i chose to try one of the new dishes, the Teriyaki Mushroom Wrap (贵妃卷), a delicious bundle of prawn & enoki mushrooms wrapped with bacon and doused with teriyaki sauce. it was sinfully delicious, an explosion of flavours in a bite.

Also had these, which was tasty enough.

1. Spinach Dumpling (芫菜野饺). A dumpling with juicy prawns and spinach leaves wrapped in a translucent dumpling skin.
2. Deep fried prawn with mayonnaise (沙拉虾).
3. Imperial Broth (上海滚汤包). The entire thing is a big xiao long bao, or soup dumpling, and is drowning in its own rich soup. open the dumpling and in it you’ll see a dried scallop, fish slices, chicken slices, enoki mushrooms, carrots etc.

this place is worth visiting as it serves only dim sum the entire day. they also have quite a few unique variations to the normal types, which is quite pleasing to the palate. below are some other things i tried whilst they were still located in desa sri hartamas.

1. szechuan surprise (四川烧卖), steamed pork dumplings with a hint of spicyness.
2. king siew mai (鮮蝦烧卖), steamed pork dumplings, topped with a whole prawn.
3. bacon & fishcake roll (煙肉卷), with a dab of mayonnaise for the fusion taste.
4. lily scallop roll (百合卷), french beans, mushrooms, bell peppers, lily bulb(百合) and fresh scallops (瑤柱) in light, crispy fu pei (腐皮 / bean curd sheets).
5. phoenix dumplings. (凤凰饺子)
6. wu kok (竽角), meat filling in a light, flaky yam puff pastry.

1. vietnamese spring rolls(越南春卷) with a sweet chilli dip.
2. salad har(炸蝦餃) which are prawn fritters with mayonnaise and ham sui kok(鹹水角), a minced-pork stuffed pastry which is sufficiently chewy and has a blend of sweet, savoury flavour.
3. zha leung(炸兩), which is basically chee cheong fun (肠粉/thin rice rolls) stuffed with yau char kway (炸油条/fried dough fritters or chinese crullers) topped with sesame seeds.
