While Penang is largely considered the food haven of the country, some dishes don’t hit the high mark like other dishes such as char kuey teow, nasi kandar, Hokkien mee (often called prawn mee in other areas of the country), and a slew of others. One of these dishes is dim sum. That said, Maxim Dim Sum Restaurant is at the helm of changing this perception. The restaurant is located near some of the more prominent eateries in the states like Nasi Kandar Subaidah and Wah Li Fried Rice and Coffee Shop. The establishment has been making some of the best dim sum to be had in the state for many years, and the following only grows larger day by day.
As far as the food is concerned, Maxim Dim Sum Restaurant serves dim sum in a slightly different fashion than most other dim sum restaurants. For starters, customers are given a card, which has a list of prices on it. Then, they go to respective departments to get the food they desire. This greatly differs from most dim sum restaurants which feature a cart that carries all the minute trays of culinary goodness. Speaking of which, some of the dim sum items customers can expect to find at Maxim Dim Sum Restaurant include the perennial favourites like Har Gao, Siew Mai, chee cheong fun, carrot cake, yam cake, as well as other items such as vegetable dumplings, yong tau foo, and much more.
So head on down to Maxim Dim Sum Restaurant to enjoy some of the best dim sum the state of Penang has to offer.
