Dinner with Yvonne, Xiao Lan, Yuen Yuen and Yan Qing! XD
The night view from our table is awesome!
My all time favourite Lau Sar Pau aka Molten egg yolk custard bun!
Finally got to settle my cravings for it after more than two months!
Look at the lava-like fillings dripping out!
Of course this is not the best Lau Sar Pau that I have tasted. This one was quite thick in terms of the bun. The best one I have tasted was in Singapore's Canton Paradise which is under the Paradise Food Group so I believe that almost all Paradise Chain restaurants serve Lau Sar Pau up to that standard. Will try it out one day at Malaysia's Paradise Inn!
Xiao Long Bao!
Definitely up to standard!
How to eat Xiao Long Bao:
Bite a hole, drink the soup from the hole and eat the pau with some vinegar and shredded ginger!
It's something like dumplings in chilli oil!
The chilli oil definitely adds a kick to the delicious dumpling!
The dumpling was cooked near to perfection!
Seasoning was balanced, meat was not overcooked and the skin not too soggy.
Salt and Pepper fried tofu.
One of my favourite of the night!
The salt and pepper coating was flavourful and crispy while the tofu inside was soft and subtle.
Would taste even better if they used egg tofu instead of normal tofu.
Stir fried long beans with minced meat.
Good seasoning, only complain would be the long beans were a little bit over cooked it lost it's crunch.
Sze Chuan Style Spicy Fried Cicken
Price was quite high considering the fact that most of the dish was covered with dried chillis, but it is definitely worth trying as it is very delicious! Definitely ordering it again when I'm back here next time!
Half of a roasted duck!
Comes with popiah skin for wrapping with cucumber and onion.
The duck was REALLY soft and tender, although abit dry.
This is one of the rare times where I do not have to chew my teeth off eating a piece of roasted duck meat!
Their roasted duck kinda reminds me of a suckling pig, with its crispy skin and flavourful meat.
However the sauce was TOO salty, overpowering the duck when you eat it so dip sparingly.
Portion was quite small too.
The steamed popiah skin.
This is one of the ways that you can enjoy you roasted duck.
I prefer to have it just with the cucumber and spring onion.
Definitely up to standard. Living up to it's good name of the chain.
Waiters and waitresses were RUSHING to clear our tables.
It wasn't too late (8pm) and the restaurant has plenty of tables left. Are they lack of utensils?
The waitress just threw a piece of used tissue into our bowl when there's still half a piece of dumpling inside.
And she didn't apologise! Lucky we were in good mood and decided to let it pass. If not...
It's not that half a piece of dumpling that we care about, it's their serving attitude that matters, are waiters and waitresses trained to rush customers into finishing their food??!
Dragon-i, train your front of house staff properly!
Nice view of whole Sunway area from the restaurant. Open concept kitchen where you can see chefs preparing your Xiao Long Baos. Classy and elegant decors. Comfy chairs. Liked it alot!
Price: RM180.50 for 5 pax
That works out to about RM36 per person. Quite expensive for a normal day dinner unless you are rich.
But RM8 for 3 Lau Sar Paus? I will come back if I have my LSP cravings again, especially since it's like 10 minutes walk away from my place.
In short, their food is up to standard but certainly not their waiters and waitresses!
Good chefs but bad waitresses/waiters.
