Dim Sum Food Restaurant @ Macalister Road, Penang

Dim Sum Dim Sum Dim Sum........ Many of the food blogger's in Penang have blog about this place before and during one occasion where my gal have to attend some replacement class from her school, hubby and I drop here and we went to have "Dim Sum". lol And when she found out that we went to have dim sum, she is like "hmm...... why you did not bring me along".
Today, I am going to blog about:
Dim Sum Food Restaurant
Some man made water fall setting in the restaurant. Hubby and I were sitting next to this waterfall. Since I am waiting for my hubby to order dim sum for us. I have nothing to do and capture this piece of man made waterfall pictures.
After browsing through the dim sum corner, hubby picked some of the following:
Har Guo
The har guo here is fresh and you can see that they have one prawn in there and the taste vice is ok.
Steamed Spare Ribs
Spare ribs tastes tender.

Siew Mai
The tastes of the siew mai is not bad.
I forgot what this is called and it is combination of prawn, meat and some vegetables in there and the overall tastes is quite good.

Chicken Feet
Custard Pao
We found that the custard pao a bit too creamy for our tastes bud and it has a very strong butter aroma in there. To be frank, we did not finished the custard pao as we were too full looking at the creamy custard pao. ^-^ But if you love creamy custard, you will surely love this. ^-^

Char Siew Pao
Hubby ordered one char siew pao to try as we were thinking to "take away" some char siew pao since my gal loves it. But after hubby tasted it, he told me better don't order that for my gal as he reckon that my gal will not like it. But the pao is ok..... nothing fancy..... ^-^

Steamed fish with hor fun and bee hoon
And we ordered this when we were seated. This is the first order but the last to come. As they need time to prepare it. ^-^ The fish slice is very fresh. I prefer the hor fun than the bee hoon for this dish as I personally felt that the hor fun can absorb the tastes better for this dish than the bee hoon. This plate of steamed fish with hor fun and bee hoon is very big and both of us seem like digging for long long time to finish this. ^-^ The price vice is very reasonable.
There are lots of choices to choose from. Do drop by when you need some "dim sum". A piece of advice is to go early to avoid the waiting time. We been there once over the weekend, it is full house and we left. The second visit we managed to get a seat. lol

Steamed Fish with Hor Fun? Meaning fish dominates rather than the hor fun? Looks like it from the picture. And with lots of garnishing. Looks super.
