Dim Sum @ Chynna, Hilton Kuala Lumpur, KL Central, Kuala Lumpur

>> Jan 20, 2011

This is my 2nd time writing this post up thanks to blogger that just screwed up again. Maybe it is time I changed to wordpress instead.

Anyway, for my dinner post at Chynna do click here.

This post is going to be extremely short as I already spent an hour on it this morning.



Steamed Siew Mai

Siew Mai

The chicken dumpling RM14 (supposed to be pork, but Chynna is a halal restaurant) was ordinary. Oriental Pavilion serves a much better siew mai (that is non-halal though).

Steamed Har Gao

Har Gao

The prawn dumplings (RM14), was rather ordinary as well. Jaya Palace serves a better prawn dumpling.

Steamed Fish Ball

Fish Ball

The fish ball (RM11) was one of the better dishes of the day. It was nice and 'bouncy'. Someone once told me Chynna is famous for their fish ball.

Steamed Char Siew Bao

Char Siew Bao

The chicken buns were ordinary as well. No biggie.

Salad Prawns

Left: Salad Prawns, Right: Cheese Prawns

Both prawns were crispy on the outside. Salad prawns are usually taken with some mayonnaise whereas cheese prawns are eaten on their own. Both dishes were alright.

Deep Fried Wu Kok

Wu Kok

The Yam Croquette wasn't great. The best Wu Kok I've tasted is from the Pasar Malam (Night Market) at SS3.

Fried Radish Cake

Fried Carrot Cake in XO Sauce

The carrot cake was well fried. However, The Emperor at Grand Dorsett Subang has a better fried carrot cake in XO sauce.

Loh Mai Kai

Loh Mai Kai

The glutinous rice was rather ordinary. Don't get me wrong, it tasted alright. Just nothing worth remembering.

Egg Tart

Egg Tarts

The egg tarts were flaky on the outside. However, the custard wasn't that soft melt in your mouth texture that could be found at China Court (Subang Avenue). They were average tarts.

All in all, the food standard has somehow dropped in recent months. Chynna served average dim sum at slightly above average prices. I do not think I will be coming back.

Attire: Smart-Casual

Pricing: About RM60 per person.

Hey dude, when you're back in town, try Elegant Inn dim sum. Some pretty good stuff there.
