Dim Sum @Jin Xuan, Damansara Utama, PJ

It's 13th day of CNY and the CNY decor is still up..

This is a backdated post.

It was a public holiday and hubby suggested we went for dim sum in the morning.  I suggested Restaurant Jin Xuan as I visited this place before with friends and  I remember they offer a wide range of dim sum varieties to the extent that you'll be spoilt for choice and at affordable price too.  They have other outlets in Damansara Jaya, Puchong and few other places that I can't recall where now.

We reached there around 11am and saw a big crowd at the entrance of the restaurant. We quickly took a number and sat on the chairs provided outside the restaurant while waiting for our number to be called. They enjoyed good business but the wait was short, only 10 minutes.  One thing worth mentioning, their service was fantastically good, just before we could warm our chairs, the assistants came lining up to serve us with trays and trays  filled up with different varieties of dim sum.  And boy, our table was filled to the brim with baskets and trays of dim sum in less than 5 minutes!

Brisk business

century egg congee

Can't recall the name but it's a frying dish stuffed with scallops, salted egg and prawn
The taste was ok though nothing to shout about.

Only let down: The meat filling of this dumpling was cold and unappetising

An egg tart turned into a birthday cake by our boy..
Happy Birthday, Mom! :)

Overall, the dim sum there was good considering the affordable price and the posher and air-conditioning dining environment.  Will I come back again for more dim sum?  Absolutely Yes!

Thanks hubby and our boy for the yummy dim sum treat.  Oh, yes..must have this jotted down..  Our boy had a share of the bill too.  The father teased him by saying he should share the cost of the bill as it's a birthday treat for his beloved mommy and he said sure..  On that night before he went to bed, he came to me and asked for permission to take RM30 (The total bill around RM60) out from his piggy bank a.k.a pouch.  Not having a clue what he wanted the money for, I queried him.  He said, "I have got to pay back daddy for the dim sum this morning, daddy pays half and I pay half".  :)  At least I know he is not stingy la.. just that he spends his money "wisely". Hahaha...

I have to take back my word, he is not stingy, he is willing to pay half of the bill to treat Mummy. Ian is a good boy, and mummy definitely deserved the treat.
