After checking out 66 Chu Yuk Fan at Taman Megah, I suggested to my partner that we should try the dim sum at Key Hiong, which is situated along the same row of shops.
I have been wanting to eat dim sum for a long time. Don't know why I have this craving.
So anyway, the day before, I tapau lunch for my partner. Sometimes I attempt to get him to eat different things, to be more adventurous so to speak. Yeah, like it works.
"I bought you Mexican food!" I announced. It was a chicken burrito bowl from Orale. After a while, I checked up on him. "Eh chiak boh?" (can you eat?).
My lahling scrunched up his face like a three year old and shook his head in the negative. "Too hot! I don't like hot things". Well, no more Mexican food for him. Haiz.....
Now back to Key Hiong. This is my brother's go-to place for tai pau. Yup, the place where he got me 8 tai paus for my birthday present last year. The tai pau here is awesome, very tasty, very worth it.
The restaurant was full but we managed to get a table when a customer left. I was very hungry and very eager to eat dim sum. So when the server came with a big tray, I picked these to share with my partner.
Oops I forgot that he doesn't eat chilies. Then we added two more items, one lo mai kai and one char siew pau.
The dim sum items were just OK for me, nothing outstanding. I have had better at other dim sum set ups like this one (such as Dim Sum Kitchen at Damansara Utama which sadly closed down a few years ago).
I thought the loh mai kai was rather bland.
Not my favorite chili sauce but it helped to make the food tastier. Am I sounding like a fussy old pot?
I usually enjoy siew mai but this one did not impress. Then more food came and greedy me picked another 3 items.
I picked something that I remembered my grandma used to enjoy.
I don't know what you call this but unfortunately it was starchy and bland. When we were done, I was so full. The lady boss came to calculate our bill and it came to RM58.00 (inclusive of one teh o).
I don't know how much one would expect to pay for dim sum at a place like this but it's a pricey lunch compared to what we usually eat on Sundays. OK, next week we go back to eat chap fan hee...hee....
