Jade Pot Dim Sum

It’s been a long time since I last had my dose of dim sum, the dainty, bite-sized Chinese food that is usually taken during breakfast. Well, times have changed now, and many restaurants are offering dim sum from morning til night, providing a constant supply to satisfy one’s cravings should it occur any time of the day. And so fate had it that we were at Jade Pot Dim Sum Restaurant one day to satisfy our dim sum craving during lunch. Located along a busy road, I was glad to know that this restaurant is a whole bungalow on its own, with a compound for free car park.

Once we’re seated, we’re given a 2-page menu printed on a piece of laminated cardboard, with pictures of the dim sum available. A piece of order chit was provided as well, for us to tick the items desired. I liked their ordering system since it’s easy, straightforward and ensures dim sum are prepared only upon order.

We went a little overboard with the ordering, placing a tick next to almost half the items on the menu. Steamers upon steamers of dim sum were served after about 10 minutes of waiting. Well to make life easy, I’m going to rate the dim sum from Good to Mediocre to Poor, according to my humble opinion.
Jade Pot Dim Sum
Pan-fried Radish Cake, RM4.80
I LOVED the Pan-fried Radish Cake! This was served piping hot with extremely crispy edges and a soft interior. Be careful not to burn your tongue with this. The trick is to cut and split it into quarters, letting them cool down for a while, before dipping it into chilli sauce and sinking your teeth into the crispy exterior. The good news is, it’s not even very oily. My favourite pick from the restaurant
Jade Pot Dim Sum
Siew Mai, RM6.80
The Siew Mai or Pork Dumplings came in rather sizable portion, with each piece large enough to require at least 2 bites. It was packed with a mixture of pork and shrimp meat, making it a savoury yet succulent package. My only gripe was that they could have been steamed a little too long, as the discoloured tobiko showed.

Fried Spare Ribs with Fermented Beancurd, RM8.80
I have always been a fan of ribs, especially pork ribs. So when I saw Fried Spare Ribs with Fermented Beancurd on the menu, I just couldn’t resist from ordering a portion. This was also served fresh from the kitchen, burning hot and so fragrant! The taste of fermented beancurd was apparent, as well as the juiciness of the pork meat. Yum!

Oyster Sauce Choy Sum, RM6.80
We ordered a plate of Oyster Sauce Choy Sum to balance out our meat- and cholesterol-laden meal. Thankfully, the vegetables were young and tender, with a generous amount of oyster sauce on top. This was as good as boiled vegetables can be.

Egg Tarts, RM4.80
The Jade Pot Egg Tarts were not the best I’ve had but they’re decent enough. Flaky pastry and warm egg custard, they hit all the right spots

Har Kow, RM5.80

Pan-fried radish cake, RM5.80
I noticed that the amount of bean sprouts on the plate was significantly higher than radish cakes.

Prawn and Cheese Roll, RM5.80
When I saw cheese in the Prawn and Cheese Roll, I told myself I simply had to try this! These were pretty decent, although the amount of cheese used could be more generous. But I have to say their prawns were really succulent!

Chee heong Fun, RM5.80
Chee Cheong Fun, or Rice Noodle Roll is another specialty in dim sum restaurants.

Guai Lin Ko, RM2.80
Chinese Herbal Jelly or Guai Lin Ko was not too bad, it had the intense flavour that was heightened with the addition of syrup on top. The syrup provided a nice and sweet beginning but once the jelly started to digest, there’s a slight bitter aftertaste, just how it should be.
