The Dishes

Siew Mai with Mushrooms – It comes with prawn, chicken and mushroom fillings, top with a slice of scallop and bits of fish roe.

The siew mai was fine, fish roe on top as topping adds to the experience – it reminds me of sushi. 🙂

Bean Curd Roll with Prawns – These are crunchy bean curd roll wrapping a prawn for each serving.

Zing, Grand Millenium Hotel KL

The bean curd roll was an interesting snack, crispy overall with prawns on the thicker end. I thought bean curd isn’t anything tasty but the fried nature of the curd and the prawn did prove me wrong.

Homemade Radish Cake – The taste is close to the average “fried kway teow”.

Zing, Grand Millenium Hotel KL

Pardon my lack of appreciation for this dish, I didn’t find anything special with it. Something not memorable.

Cheong Fun with Dried Shrimps – Presentation is nice and neat. The filling of the cheong fun goes with dried shrimps. Top with spring onion and small quantity of cheong fun chili paste. However, I prefer having fresh prawn filling over dried shrimps.

Zing, Grand Millenium Hotel KL

I’m not a fan of cheong fun but this must be the most beautiful looking cheong fun I’ve ever seen, skillfully done and finely arranged – eating it was a different experience from the regular cheong fun. Just do a search on Google’s on “cheong fun” and click on IMAGES, see if you come by anything that looks even like this one.

A La Carte Dim Sum Menu

Steamed Szechuan Wonton (RM10.50) – Prawn wrapped wonton with Szechuan sauce that’s sweet, sour and spicy.

Zing, Grand Millenium Hotel KL

Lovely dish, fresh prawn covered in wonton. The Szechuan sauce adds to the overall taste.

Zing Signature Baked Durian Puff (RM8.50) – I found it not to be as sweet to my preference, and I found that the filling comprise of fresh cream and durian flesh.

Unlimited Dim Sum Brunch Menu – Teasers for Next Month, June’09

Deep Fried Scallop with Vietnamese Rice Nest – A MUST TRY dish for June ’09 menu. Scallops and prawns wrapped with crispy fried noodle and decorated with fish roe.

Zing, Grand Millenium Hotel KL

Probably the most enjoyable dim sum dish so far, I love the crunchiness of the crispy fried noodle. To remember to have a plate under it as you eat because the roe and friend noodles fall like buildings in an earthquake on each bite. Worry about the dropping pieces later, enjoy the wrapped prawns and scallops.

Steamed Cod Fish and Seafood Dumpling with Egg Sauce – A MUST TRY dish for June ’09 menu too. Each dumpling is fine, smooth and soft in texture. The fillings comprise of cod fish and prawn meat and top with bits of fish roe.

Zing, Grand Millenium Hotel KL

This dish is similar to the Steamed Szechuan Wonton, what I liked about this dish was that it game also with crab meat, placed right at the outer fringe of the saucer.

Custard Bun – A MUST TRY dish. The filling is very special with flowing juicy sweet custard and salted egg yolk. It can be messy if you are not careful.

Zing, Grand Millenium Hotel KL

The custard bun is an ordinary dish with an extraordinary taste. Firstly, what looks like your average PAO in dim sum offerings comes with tasty salted egg yolk fillings, you could feel it down to the finest sands of mashed solid yolk. Secondly, it surprises practically anyone eating the first time since you could end up spilling it if you bit it wrongly – so prepare a plate or something under your point of action. 🙂

We enjoyed the meal very much. Frankly, the price is towards the high side. However, do note that you are not just paying for the meal but also the quality ingredients, finest work of art from the Master Chef, ambiance and the dining experience. In short, you experience the BEST.

Our advice, do pamper yourself after long hours of hard work and pay a bit more for experience after all you are at no loosing end when comes to food.
