[JB, MALAYSIA] Back to my favourite dim sum restaurant in JB as this is what I crave whenever I'm here. The quality of the dim sum dishes here are excellent and really value for money too!

Gim Cheng boasts a very traditional ambience and they sell a huge variety of dishes, from steamed buns to fried dishes to the classic steamed ones in baskets. I have so many favourites here:

The classic Char Siu Bun here is just outstanding. Full of smoky pork meat, the filling was generous and full of sweet savoury flavours. Pork pieces were tender and I just love how fluffy and sweet the bun is!

Next got to be their steamed bringal, which is nicely coated with a sweet savoury sauce that has alot of garlic. Bringal was cooked nicely with a huge meat filling within!

The steamed prawn balls is also worth a mention, as it was just packed with so much prawn meat that gave it so much flavour. Dip this in some chilli sauce and you got yourself a satisfying bite 😍

There were just too many good dishes to name. However, I think their sweet dishes (except their legendary liu sa bun) are quite forgettable. It's better to just have their liu sa bun as dessert! 😁

Special Sauce Stir Fried Radish Cake (RM 8.90) - As good as I remember, eggy, flavourful, and full of beansprout. A little spicy with a slight crisp outer and mushy inner.

Fresh Shrimp Wanton Mee Soup (RM 9.90) - A must-order with silky thin noodles in a bowl of tasty broth full of sweetness. The soup is truly exceptional, and it comes with 5 pieces of shrimp wanton.

(3 Pieces) (RM 6.90) really taste so good tbh but overall experience for me is just saw a lot of SG people literally queued up for this around 8 to 9 a.m. as they ask us to write the order from the menu first before getting to sit down. I noticed that their seating arrangements was quite not that big as most of people come in big group from 4 to 6 people (they get sitting first once previous big group finished, left table and staff cleaned up mess already) instead of small group from 2 to 3 people (getting share table with other small group or outside sitting place). Once we sit down, they started to serve beverages first before serving dim sum. I felt that it really not worth it to queue it or come down for second time tbh and got other JB places for dim sum also. It really got convenience location from KSL Mall like 10 to 15 mins walking distance from the mall.

(3 Pieces) (RM 9.90) the verison of their xiao long bao was quite different from SG which they stand on their own whereas they placed them on aluminium foil cups. One thing difference from SG is that they added shaoxing rice wine and filled up inside xiao long bao's soup broth and like I felt that it was really interesting perspective from usual norms.

(2 Pieces) (RM 5.90) My sister saw people ordered this and their bun didn't coated with gold much lol but then good thing that my bun did coated with gold fully. But their salted egg bun was quite buttery and savoury taste but melted it off on my mouth.

(3 Pieces) (RM 12.90) I was quite impressed by they literally add one scallop on the top of the siew mai lol but I felt that it was really having a lot of effort from the staff and giving seafood vibes tbh.
