The famous Wong Chow dim sum restaurant in Bukit Mertajam is getting worse with sub par food being served and choices are very limited too. I have since blacklisted the restaurant, which is a shame because it used to be my favorite dim sum restaurant. Luckily I have found an alternative for my weekend dim sum fix – Dim Sum City (Dian Xin Cheng) at Kampung Baru.
I won’t be going into details about the dim sum here but they are mostly good tasting. I also think that their dim sum is the top in BM currently for quality and variety.
Besides Hong Kong style dim sum, Dim Sum City is also serving Taiwan and Shanghai styled dim sum. So, you will be spoilt for choice here.
This is how a typical weekend crowd looks like at Dim Sum City. Even though the restaurant is huge to accomodate hundreds of customers at one time, a free table is still kinda hard to find.
If you are like me who got disappointed by Wong Chow, do head to Dim Sum City located just after BM’s Old Town Kopitiam (on your right just before you reach Kampung Baru’s wet market on your left)
