Best Dim Sum in KL

Written by Updated ago

Dim Sum in Malaysia, isn’t limited to just serving breakfast to hungry people. In fact, thanks to Hong Kong’s exposure of dim sum throughout the world, our dim sum has been getting better by the year. Regardless whether it is traditionally made or fusion with some other cuisine – dim sum will always have a place in our hearts. Beautifully braised chicken feet, warm BBQ Pork Bun, creamy custard bun, the infamous Siu Mai and prawn dumplings, fried yam balls and many more! Hence, here are the list of the best dim sum place to be in Kuala Lumpur.

    Dolly Dim SumPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Say goodbye to the scorching heat and clinking trays, as you step into a comfortable and modern eatery that serves you as good or even better Dim Sum. Dolly Dim Sum gives you a comfortable, visually pleasing and safe haven from the bustling city. Food-wise, they use only the freshest ingredients possible, down to the sauce that accompanies the dumplings. Your typical Siu Mai (Chicken and Prawn Dumpling), Har Gao (Prawn Dumpling), and Salad Prawn here have never tasted so refined. Washing it all down with tea is pretty common, but here one can expect Oriental-inspired cocktails! How cool is that?

    Tips

    It’s merged with Fresca Mexican Kitchen & Bar.

    Things to expect

    A contemporary place with delectable Dim Sum.

    Don’t get the idea of bright coloured dim sum case but nevertheless. Jin Xuan Hong Kong is one of the most successful dim sum restaurant in Malaysia. Accounting to a total of 6 branches all over Klang Valley. Though they do not serve high-quality, Oriental restaurant-like dim sum, they sure do provide decent dim sum at an affordable price. Popular for its Siu Mai and various other dumplings, Jin Xuan Hong Kong has people coming from afar for a nice dim sum breakfast. Grace up the table with a couple of char siew baos too for optimal satisfaction.

    Tips

    Breakfast usually full, sometimes as long as a 30 minute wait.

    Things to expect

    Reasonably priced dim sum with decent quality and taste.

    Best with

    Prawn Dumpling, Siu Mai and various other dumplings.

    The dim sum at Secret Loc Cafe covers a wide range of options. From the steamed options, to the fried items; from main course items, to dessert, there’s a lot to choose from. The standouts in this extensive list have to be the Shanghai Xiao Long Bao, the creamy custard bun and the fried radish cake. The Shanghai Xiao Long Bao has that burst of flavourful soup that you look for in this particular dim sum. The skin holds it all in very well without you having to worry about the soup spilling out of the seal. The fried radish cake is cooked very well, resulting in a crispy exterior with a soft interior that’s a pleasure to bite into. As for the creamy custard bun, the skin is just thick enough to hold the juicy, creamy filling in the centre, but easy enough to bite into to enjoy the filling inside that has a great consistency.

    Tips

    Dim Sum items with a liquid center need to be handled with care.

    Things to expect

    The Shanghai Xiao Long Bao does not come with a soup spoon unlike most dim sum establishments.

    Best with

    The signature jasmine tea will pleasantly end the dim sum session

Starting at RM2.90 for a serving of Siu Mai. Furthermore, they do not merely serve dim sum only but a variety of other side dishes as well. Porridge, stir-fried lala and quite a number more. Great place to be after a long night of fun or work!

    The Han Room has been popular with many of the white collar working people within the Midvalley vicinity. Serving quality and delicious dim sum, it has definitely made a name for itself. One may have to splurge a little more here but considering the charming atmosphere and dim sums that scream with quality and varieties, it's surely worth it. Choices of dishes in The Han Room may be slightly different as compared to others as they offer more personalised dishes. You’ll find weird dishes like Baked Seafood in Crabshell, Roasted Pigeon, Baked Scallop, Braised Lobster Pumpkin Soup and many more. Fred not, most of which were pretty good.

    Tips

Do not worry about that sudden hunger of yours at an ungodly hour.

    The Ming Room is a full-fledged Chinese restaurant that serves Dim Sum for breakfast and ala carte for breakfast, lunch and dinner. What makes their dim sum a big hit is they are never skimp in terms of filling and each piece is given close scrutiny by the chefs. Interiorly, it’s pretty oriental with tables and chairs ranged not far from one another. It’s pretty difficult to manoeuvre in such a place. However, the staffs were friendly enough to attend to your calls and order, so no worries about going around looking for food – although there are live chefs cooking in front of everyone.

    Tips

    Dim Sum sells out quite quickly – grab before everyone else does.

    Things to expect

    Tight space with plenty of people during breakfast.

    Best with

    Red Wine Pork Ribs, Tofu cooked in Crab Meat Gravy, Fried Yam, Egg Tart and Char Siew.

    Toms' place is not just your ordinary cafe, as they serve a wholesome delight of fresh dim sum to locals near and far.
