There are 3 dim sum restaurants near my house, with only 5-10 minutes’ distance away. All of them serve Hong Kong dim sum but the main difference among them is the variety of dim sum selections available.

“Soon Hong” 顺丰 Restaurant is located along Lorong Tembikai 1, Taman Sri Rambai (Jit Sin High School is located here too) This restaurant used to sell Bak Kut Teh but closed some years ago. It has now resumed business, and selling dim sum too in the morning.

Other than the normal Har Kau, Siu Mai and Har Mai, this restaurant features many other types of dim sum I have never seen before. The lotus leaf rice sold here seems to be quite a hit too, it was ordered by almost every table.

Stuffed Crab Claws.. I doubt the stuffed meat were real crab flesh. Looks tempting but tasted a bit bland.

We weren’t too satisfied, so we ordered more :)

This is quite out of the ordinary: rolled pork, ham and dried seaweed with a slice of carrot sandwiched.

Steamed dumplings with mixed vegetables. Our bill came up to RM17+, including 2 Milo, one iced. “Soon Hong” serves good dim sum, but one thing I didn’t like was the warmth of the dim sum. The carts used here to push the dim sum around didn’t have boiling water underneath to keep them warm. The dim sum are steamed at the counter then moved to the carts. So if possible, try to grab them as fast as you can, or request the waiters for them to be re-heated.
