Dim Sum@ Tai Zi Heen, Prince Hotel KL

Mid Autumn Festival is just around the corner,(on the 19th of September), so have you got yourself or your friends any mooncakes yet? If you haven't got any plans on how to celebrate, why not treat them to Tai Zi Heen for a hearty dim sum meal?
Tai Zi Heen has recently added a few irresistible ala carte items on the menu which will guarantee to stir up your appetite as you scroll down this post. Let's start feasting (with our eyes). 

 Left : Steamed purple spinach dumplings topped with Mexican clams

Left : Steamed prawn dumplings with crab meat and dried scallops

Both were equally good to me. However, if I were to only choose one, I would still go for the Prawn Dumpling (orange color). You can find bouncy and succulent prawns with minimal seasoning enclosed in a translucent sticky glutinous skin ...mmm.. They are sweet, simple yet so delish. 

Steamed crystal yam dumplings with chicken and mushrooms
The Crystal Yam Dumpling is literally the healthier version of the 'Wu Kok'(deep fried yam stuffed with chicken fillings) . I am sure old folks will love this because they taste exactly delicious as the fried version, minus the unhealthy oil and fats content. (and they are aesthetically beautiful too!)

Left : Pan fried crispy bean curd with prawn and cheese (RM14)
Right : Crispy salmon and cheese roulade

Oh. Here comes everyone's favorite. Who doesn't like fried and unhealthy stuffs? I love 'em ! Don't judge. They taste marvelous. While eating this, you can temporary forget about what's being healthy , just allow yourself to succumb and drown in the deliciousness of these fusion dim sum. 
The Pan fried crispy bean curd with prawn and cheese is literally a great combo, both has its own distinct taste and texture; the beancurd was chewy and crispy at the same time and the Crispy Salmon and cheese Roulade was awesome too!
I wasn't sure what's the exterior wrapping substance rolling around the Salmon and Cheese Roulade, but my instinct tells me that it's vermicelli, oh whatever it is, everything just seem so right with deep-fry method.The Salmon itself taste great, but when paired with the cheese, it taste better. Ummmm.. I wish I could record down the crunchy sound effect and play it right here, right now. *crack - craaackk*. 

Left: Yam puffs filled with beef bacon and chives (RM10)

Almost everything are similar between this Yam Puff with Wu Kok ,crispy on the outside , soft and fragrant yam paste inside, and there's surprise in the core - Bacon! Salty and all the possible goodness. Goodness. Really. How sinful yet delighting. *shakes head*

Beef patties with leeks, Mayo and Teriyaki sauce

It's not easy for you to imagine how will this morsel taste like. Don't guess, let me tell you.
At the first glance, on both the dish's name and the appearance, it look exactly like beef patties (like those you normally find in burgers) but the texture awed me. You know how does fish paste taste like? This dish tasted just like a hybrid of fish paste, and beef meat, and both of their texture in between. Pretty interesting dish! Chef even topped it with dried bonito flakes , it literally makes me think that I am eating okonomiyaki .
Love the drizzle of sweet and tangy teriyaki sauce and mayonnaise (oh ! pls don't remind me)on my patties too!

Shanghai dumplings with crab meat and broth (RM14)*highly recommended*

The highlighted dish from me. I never fancy dumplings that is filled with minced meat,( although I tend to overeat sometimes,) but this Shanghai Dumpling was an exception. There's a lot of seafood treasure inside this mini parcel which gives a burst of seafood flavors in the superior broth. The broth is so concentrated with the scallop and crabmeat flavor, needless to explain further if you have already taken a look at it. 

 It's always great to have some of these sweet traditional cakes for family reunion. Mooncakes are also available in Tai Zi Heen this year.

With the finest in taste and quality, the tempting array of both traditional and innovative mooncakes such as five variety nuts, rum and raisin (RM25), white lotus paste with single yolk (RM24), low sugar white lotus paste with sunflower seed (RM23), pandan paste with melon seed (RM23), red bean paste (RM21), mini snow skin chocolate and whisky (RM18), mini snow skin with red bean paste (RM15), mini snow skin with passion fruit cheese cake (RM19) and mini snow skin with pandan lotus paste and mung bean paste (RM16). 

Apart from the traditional ones, I would recommend the mini snow skin with passion fruit cheese cake. It was superb, not too sweet , not cloying, and even the cheese aren't too potent (which might be nauseating sometimes), every element are very well balance in this petite mooncake. Also, all mooncakes here are handmade and no preservatives or coloring are added. Indeed a healthier choice for everyone 

Dim Sum Chef Chong Lim Fong.

 Never forget behind this meal, there's a dedicated and hardworking chef that creates all those mouth-watering dim sums and  mooncakes . Look at the curves on his face, I believe he loves cooking for us and love sharing his joy through his passion. 

*touch belly, pats belly *

I am feeling round and contented, and you should too! =)
