[UPDATED] I LOVE YUMCHA HAS CLOSED DOWN SINCE EARLY 2017
:: Found another nice yet affordable price dimsum place nearby our home ::
We usually have "dim-sum" at Damansara area. I googled and found this "I love yumcha" located at Plaza Menjalara, Kepong with good reviews saying that their dim-sum are handmade and fresh, just around 15 minutes drive from home. We use GPS to lead us here. The restaurant is easy to be spot because of their huge red signboard with "I love yumcha". Abundant parking space is available since many shops are off for business on Sunday.
It is around 9.30 am.. the restaurant is pack with customers mostly are family. We were lucky there is a table for two available when we walk-in. The restaurant is spacious and clean. The staff is attentive too!
Beside places order via the self-service menu, there are this lady who push the mobile cart around with the steamed and fried dim sum. The fried dim-sum cart lady first approved us after we sit down, so we choose 2 types of fried dim-sum from the cart for our first round.
Honey BBQ Pork Puff 蜜汁叉燒酥 (RM4.80)The honey barbecue minced pork coated with the crispy fluffy crust layer topped with sesame seeds is delicious! Totally worth the the value.
Fried Mango Prawns 芒果虾 (RM5.50)Husband choose this Deep Fried Mango Prawns. It taste even better when we dipped with mayonnaise before eat. We love this new dish that we never try.
Thai Style Smoked Bacon Roll 泰式烟肉卷 (RM6.00)The Bacon just melt in our tough the moment we put into our mouth. Meat lover husband finish 2 in a blink! haha ..
Salted Egg Siew Mai 咸蛋烧卖 (RM4.80)The Siew Mai taste fresh! The only thing is I can't really taste the Salted egg. I guess that little chunk of salted egg on top of the Siew Mai has loose it's taste after steam. Overall it taste like ordinary siew mai that we always have.
Lo Mai Kai with abalone slice 鲍片糯米鸡Their Lo Mai Kai taste is slightly different from the Lo Mai Kai that I always have. There are more sweet barbecue minced pork on it so it taste slightly sweet.
The restaurant is using the Kampung Koh Garlic Chili Sauce which goes very well with dim-sum. Generally, consider the generous portion of the dim-sum that they are serving, the price is reasonable and value for money. Dimsum are fresh and you can tell it is homemade as it is less salty. This will be our alternate weekend dimsum place.
