Among all the Dim Sum Restaurants I’ve eaten in KL, my favorite has to be Grand Imperial at One Utama. The quality and variety of Dum Sum is similar to my favorite Dim Sum places in HK and Toronto. In my opinion it is the probably the only restaurant that really serves up HK-Style Dim Sum.
Caramelized Octopus Tentacles with Cashew Nuts
This was my first time having such a Dim Sum dish. It was sweet and sticky. The Octopus Tentacles were actually quite dense in texture.
Shrimp Dumpling: Har Kow
The Shrimp Dumpling here was really good! The skin was thin and the Prawns were very fresh
Shanghainese Pork Dumplings (Xiao Long Bao)
Malaysian Lo Mai Kai
Stir Fried Raddish Cake with XO Sauce
Deep Fried Yam Dumplings
Yong Tau Food
Roast Crispy Pork
The Cripsy Pork was quite good. The Skin was crispy and had the right amount of Fat.
Preserved Egg and Pork Congee
Braised Lamb Shank
Roast Spare Rib Skewer
Not very good. The Pork Ribs were served cold and was very hard to chew on.
Deep Fried Nam Yue Pork Ribs
Braised Bok Choy in Superior Stock
Wonton Noodles with US Beef
My favorite Noodle Dish. The Noodles have a really good Springy Texture and the Beef was super soft and had a nice Oyster Sauce Flavor.
Hand Made La Mian with Spicy Beef Brisket
Another really good Noodle dish. The Brisket was very tender and was very good with the Chili Oil. The Noodles had a nice Springy texture as well.
Shanghainese Wo Ba
Eric ordered this dish which he had in Shanghai. I'm pretty sure Grand Imperial modified it here to include Soy Beans with Sambal. Basically we top the Rice Crispy with the Minced Pork and Soy Bean with Sambal.
The Peking Duck looked really good but was disappointing because they left the Skin inside the Crepe way too long before serving it.
Pan Fried Pumpkin Cake
Mango and Pomelo with Sago Dessert Soup
This was definitely Dim Sum overkill as we ordered not only the usual Dim Sum dishes but also all the specials that were available during Sunday such as their Drunken Chicken, Braised Lamb Brisket and Nam Yue Pork Ribs. I wasn't the only one that thought Grand Imperial served good Dim Sum. My relatives from Hong Kong also felt the same.
