Given the countless places that serve dim sum in KL, I seldom revisit a particular restaurant within a short period of time as there are always more to discover. But I made an exception for Chuai Heng and had my dim sum brunch there for two consecutive weekends because their dim sum is really good, albeit slightly higher priced than the rest.

Restoran-Chuai-Heng

The restaurant might look normal from the outside but the interior is actually quite grand with a welcoming appeal. Dim sum is ordered using an a la carte paper menu and prepared to order so they always taste warm and fresh.

Siu-Mai

I absolutely love the Siu Mai @ RM7.80. It sounds expensive but the good thing is that each basket contains four pieces instead of the usual three. Each of them are made of some minced meat and least three pieces of sweet and succulent prawns with the desirable crunchy texture.

Steamed-Pork-Ribs-with-Pumpkin

Some pumpkin slices add a different twist to the Steamed Pork Ribs. This is very tasty as well, but alas, we felt it had more bones than meat.


Flowing-Sands-Bun

‘Lau Sa Bao’ is almost as good as the ones we had in Hong Kong.

Lau-Sha-Bao

The warm custard filling oozes out like liquid gold, creamy with a salty fragrance – perfect.

Baked-BBQ-Pork-Pastry

One of the best Char Siew Sou (RM7) in town, similar to what I had at Red Star. You could smell the butter in the pastry as soon as they arrive, deliciously flaky on the outside and wonderfully gooey BBQ pork filling on the inside.

Xiu-Long-Bao

‘Xiu Long Bao’ – as good as the big chains’, honestly it is difficult to discern the difference in taste.

Har-Gao

‘Har Gaw’ @ RM7.30

Fried-Carrot-Cake

Fried Carrot Cake @ RM14, with portion large enough to be shared between at least two pax. Nicely done with a hint of spiciness and ample ‘wok hei’, a few large prawns are thrown in as well for the extra flavor.

Pumpkin-Sauce-Siu-Mai

Steamed Siu Mai with Pumpkin Sauce @ RM7.50 – basically a mixture of minced meat and prawn topped with creamy pumpkin sauce that is only lightly seasoned.

Steamed-Rice-Flour-Roll

Although a common and popular Cantonese dim sum in Hong Kong, ‘Zhar Leong’ (炸两) is quite rare in KL so it’s worth ordering here. It is a combination of two simple ingredients, made by wrapping rice noodle roll around youtiao and layered with soy sauce. And instead of sesame seeds, it is sprinkled with some sweet and salty pork floss.

Chuai-Heng-Restaurant

Besides the usual steamed and fried selections, roasted crispy Peking Duck is also served. The crispy duck skins are carved and rolled in pancakes before the diners’ eyes and that makes an interesting table show. From what I see in my visits so far, the duck is very popular with the diners who come in groups and families.

  1. Goodfood

    Chuai Heng Restaurant in Bukit Bintang Dim Sum is alright. I won’t said it is good for a restaurant like that kind and also for the price that I am paying for. I don’t mind paying for it if it taste good but it is average, only the siu Mai is good the rest are very average. Not worth the money and the drive, better to have dim sum at local Chinese shop than Chuai Heng.
