One of our biggest struggles when it comes to food (makan oso got struggles! First world problems habis!) has always been finding good halal dim sums!
For a reasonable RM50++ per person, China Treasures ends the search for us with its utterly satisfying a la carte buffet, with over 48 different dim sum dishes to choose from!
Started off with some Seafood Dumplings Served in Superior (?) Chicken Stock
These Steamed Beef Balls and Beancurd Skin in Superior Broth (not that the broth was terrible or anything, but why the usage of such an inferiority-complex-inflicting adjective to describe a type of broth?) are-mah-zing!
Moving on to the posterboys of dim sum: Steamed Chicken "Siew Mai" with Mushroom
We don't know which genius came up with the idea of incorporating cilantro in dumplings, but we are eternally grateful. Here's a heavenly serving of Steamed Dried Scallop & Cilantro Dumplings
Bob is enchanted by the Steamed Tri-colour Chicken & Prawn Dumplings
Steamed Crystal Dumplings with Fish Roe
Unfortunately, the Steamed Shanghai Dumplings were unpleasant, with its overpowering ginger-y taste. Fortunately, that was the only unpleasant dish we had throughout brunch
Bring on the fried goodies! What's a dim sum feast without the iconic Deep-Fried Prawn with Crispy Dragon Beard?
Deep-Fried Five Spice Flavour Chicken Meat Roll has an intense herbal flavour to the chicken that we quite like
Deep-Fried Beancurd Skin Roll with Mushroom
Unable to turn down opportunities to sample duck, we happily tucked into the Diced Duck Meat with Assorted Veges, served on a lettuce wrap
Deciding to steer into sweet territory, we sank our teeth into the absolutely glorious Steamed Buttered & Salted Egg Yolk Bamboo Charcoal Bun! The glossy bun is ridiculously fluffy, and a miscalculated bite will send thick salted egg yolk custard oozing down your chin!
As the perfect ending to the hearty brunch, we polished off these gooey China Treasures Mini Egg Tarts in no time, washed down with soothing cups of strong Jasmine Tea.
