Dim Sum with Megan & Tammy @ Restaurant Yuen Garden, Bandar Puchong Jaya

>> Dec 21, 2009

Last Friday, we wanted to go for fish head noodles at Jalan Batai. However, since it was a public holiday, we were unsure if the place was opened, so we opted for Yuen Garden @ Puchong instead.

Restaurant Yuen Garden is very famous for their dim sum and is probably one of the best places to eat dim sum (tim sum) in Puchong. Yuen Gardens consists of two floors. We were seated on the 1st floor. Service tend to differ a bit depending on where you're seated at. Dim Sum is priced at RM3-5 unless one opts for sharks fin or abalone or something which would definitely cost more.

Restoran Yuen Garden

We started with the steamed stuff.

Har Gao

Siew Mai

I must say, the Siew Mai and Har Gao at this place lacked presentation, but they certainly tasted much better than Axian Dim Sum. The Siew Mai was packed with flavours and I didn't think it was too salty (contrary to what some people say). Their Har Gao was wrapped with that thin translucent layer which was perfect for the dish. Definitely one of their better dim sums.

No Clue to the Name of this dish but it consisted of prawns, meat and peas

Scalloped Mai topped with fake shark's fin

Japanese Tofu with Meat

Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun (Chu Cheong Fun)

Xiao Long Pao (Siew Long Pao)

The rest of the steamed stuff that we sampled were just average. Nothing really to shout about. I would say they were not bad, but definitely could do better. Next came the fried stuff that were just out of the pan (they ran out when we just arrived)

Salad Prawns

This is one of the worst salad prawns I have ever tasted. This dish is a total embarrassment to be classified even close to actual salad prawns. Their skin was too thick to begin with and it wasn't even crispy. I would suggest you try the Axian Dim Sum's salad prawns which is far superior to this.

Wu Kok (yam filled with meat)

Egg Tart (Tan Tart)

However, these 2 dishes made up for that salad prawns. They certainly scored home runs themselves. The Wu Kok had a total different texture to the Wu Kok I've tasted at other restaurants. This new texture was somehow pleasing to the palate. the Egg Tart was flaky on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside.

The bill came to a total of RM43 for the 3 of us. I would consider it fair price for dim sum in a proper restaurant. Between Axian Dim Sum and Yuen Garden, I would say both have their pros and flaws. Axian certainly know how to present their dish well to make it look appealing whereas Yuen Garden's food certainly did taste better (other than that salad prawns).
