Jin Xuan Dim Sum – oh so delicious!

Jin Xuan Dim Sum - oh so delicious!

Never thought I’d be a dim sum fan today, I remember back when I was just a kid – I didn’t like them at all. 😀 Oh yeah Happy Belated Chinese New Year to all of you, yeah we had a long break and didn’t feel like writing. 😛

The one we love to visit (albeit the horrible parking condition) is the SS22 branch.

You’ll see the similar concept across the other branch, like the bar looking at the production area.

For me, I like Jin Xuan not just for the environment but the good quality dim sum. I’ve tasted quite a few others, from competitor Hong Kee, the higher grade Grand Imperial (they cost a lot more) and those not-so-good road-side dim sum that are rather rough in build quality (what term to use here! 😛 )

Here’s the Siu Mai.

Here’s the Har Gaw.

Ooo… the prawns in the fillings are fresh and crunchy.

And here’s what they call Shark Fin but I have no idea what’s it called in Chinese (not stated on menu).

I’ve not seen any shark’s fin in the fillings. Anyhow, I am enjoying the flavor, finding the taste to be quite close to “Siew Mai”.

There’s also the Wu Kok, very well stuffed and nicely fried.

It’s delicious! A dish that will not go wrong in flavor and taste in most of the dim sum places.

Then of course, there’s the awesome custard bun that lexiegirl likes so much. 😀 Look at the filling! I also love how the bun itself looks so refined.

Yummy! These custard buns are labeled as “Golden Bun” in the menu. Just a taste of the sweet silky smooth custard syrup with a tinge of salted eggs yolk flavor enveloping the wall of your palate is indeed satisfying. Indeed this dish is a great way to end the meal.

Nowadays, my guess is that the salted eggs yolk ingredient has been much reduced or to none. I wish there are more of it. However, considering the price, you would not expect much. Also, I wish to see 3 pieces of buns per tray rather than 2 pieces.

Besides the dim sum stuff, do give the pork rib a try. It costs RM 10.

Simply irresistible… well marinated ribs.

To my guess, it’s ingredients could possibly be honey/sugar, soya/Lee Kum Kee sauce & garlic and baking them could do the trick.

Not much meat to enjoy though. Hence, it’s perfectly alright to assume it as a candy stick with a twist … LOL!

As for the rest of the dim sum, they are RM 3.60 for small, RM 4 for medium and RM 4.50 for big. I have no idea how they classify them. Har Gaw and Siu Mai are RM 4.50 per tray. Custard bun looks big and tasty but it’s RM 3.60. Wu Kok and Shark fin dim sum are RM 4 per tray.

Speaking of which, on busy days you can order via scribbling on the order sheet but on busy days, they could be going around with a huge tray as seen below. Their service is good so far, even days where the crowd had to line up.

I won’t be listing the address this time but I’ll probably put a map to the SS22 branch when I feel like it.

There’s a branch in Puchong, pretty near IOI Boulevard. There’s also a branch at Damansara Uptown. 🙂 Puchong branch is my favorite, they have roasted pork belly there and open till really late at night!
