“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”
A traditional dim sum brunch includes various types of steamed buns such as bao (a steamed bun filled with barbeque meat), rice or wheat dumplings and rice noodle rolls, which contain a range of ingredients, including beef, chicken, pork, prawns, and vegetarian options. And dim sum literally means “touch the heart“, so did my heart got touched when I visited So Dim Sum? Let’s find out!
So Dim Sum.
Yet another trip to I-City Mall for some good food. When I was contacted by the So Dim Sum team to try out their menu in their new outlet, I was delighted! As a prominent foodie, it almost felt like a blessing – and I might be a little dramatic over here, but I was truly excited that I didn’t mind driving for 30 minutes in heavy rain. And if you are not familiar with the I-City mall, then let me guide you to So Dim Sum. It’s located on the 3rd floor and quite close to the escalator – so easy to spot! The restaurant is quite big so you don’t have to worry about gathering with your family – if there are like 13 of them! They will arrange the apt place for you – I am sure because the staffs are friendly and always ready to accommodate your needs.
The restaurant was decorated moderately or rather, minimal which is quite refreshing because most of the restaurants I visit have an extravagant interior design but a cramped place. If you have kids or babies, you can definitely sit them by your side without taking up space from other patrons. The other cool thing about this place is they have multiple payment choices available to choose from, so you can choose to pay via cash, credit/debit card or Boost application, convenient isn’t it?
So Dim Sum offers an ala carte menu, as to how it is supposed to be hence you do not have to worry about wasting food. Plus, this definitely benefits on your side as you and your friends can try as much of the dish on the menu as you want without spending many bucks. I mean especially if you are a food enthusiast then you would not stop with only one choice from the menu. Back to my visit, I invited my sister and a few of my other friends to come along because sharing is caring, you know? If you are wondering what did I order, check out the mouth-watering pictures :
Prawn Cheong Fun – Rm8.00
This is said to be one of the hottest selling dishes! And I kid you not – it was actually good! Also, I feel it was a little more liquid-ish than the normal ones-but definitely not a bad choice.
Fried dumpling takes the crown – all day every day since I LOVE DUMPLINGS. And this wasn’t that oily so health enthusiasts can give a try, at-least ONCE! Especially, if you are looking for the crunchy factor then this is your GO TO!
I have mentioned multiple times in my previous blog posts how much I dislike black-pepper since my college days and I keep discovering food with black-pepper as one of the main ingredients that are gradually turning me into a believer. So this pretty thing here did its magic too. This should be in your MUST-HAVES!
Hello cheesy lovers! This Siew Mai is definitely going to be your favorite! I am not sure if these exist in other places ( forget about Google) because traditional dim sum shops do not offer this as far as I am concerned!
One of my many favorite dishes from Chinese cuisine is definitely Wanton Mee! Although I find this a little dry it’s okay for the price that has been offered. You can give this a try if rice is not your thing.
SO Fried Rice | Rm9.50
Fried Rice! Fried Rice! Is there any better comfort food than fried rice for us Malaysians? If you have not tried one in a Chinese restaurant, then this is definitely one you have to try this one because this Halal version is as good as the non–halal one! And the portion can be shared between 2-3 pax so the price is indeed worth it.
Beancurd Roll | Rm6.00
Totally would recommend for Halal Dim Sum because the taste isn’t so much different from the one available in the Chinese restaurants. Also, the price is reasonable especially if you are looking to have a gathering with friends or family; the menu starts from Rm4.00 and goes up till Rm9.50 however it is something that share-able hence food wastage can be avoided tremendously. Not only that, you can also select multiple dishes and share with your group – that way, you can try multiple dishes without causing a hole in your wallet.
