Restoran Loong Seng @ SS2, P.J
Nothing beats having a hearty Dim Sum breakfast to kick start your weekends!
Dim Sum will always have a place in our hearts and I believe everyone have your own favourite Dim Sum joints to enjoy the classic Siew Mai and Har Gao, warm Char Siew Bao, creamy custard bun, crispy prawn rolls and many more. My family’s most frequented Dim Sum place is located in Kampung Sungai Buloh (which I’ll blog about it later) and today’s post is this Restoran Loong Seng which was hubby’s new find. Would it be our new love? Read on…..
It’s certainly a busy day for this old school Dim Sum restaurant on a Saturday morning. The restaurant was brimming with breakfast crowd, both indoor and along the corridor of the shop, as well as on the road side. We managed to secure the last table in the shop and the waiter took our drink order promptly. There isn’t any decoration to speak of, very typical traditional kopitiam setting, with no air conditional, hence the environment was a bit warm and stuffy. But I heard that the dining area on upper floor is air-conditioned, anyone can enlighten me?
Siew Mai (RM4.50)
Har Gao (RM4.50)
Both classic Dim Sum were nicely executed. The Siew Mai was plump and moist and the Har Gao was filled with sizable bouncy prawns, however the skin was a bit too thick.
Char Siew Bao (RM2.50)
Very old school style of BBQ pork bun with slightly bigger size if compared with those offered in “modern” Dim Sum restaurants. The fluffy bun skin encasing a decent filling with well balanced sweetness and savouriness .
Loh Mai Gai (RM5.00)
The steamed glutinous rice with chicken was moist and flavourful, came with mushroom, chicken pieces and Chinese waxed sausage.
Chee Cheong Fun with Prawns (RM6.00)
Freshly made rice noodle rolls and we opted for prawn version (Char Siew or combination of both also available). Silky smooth and filled with big juicy prawns, thumbs up for this!
Lala Dim Sum (RM4.50)
The clams with meat paste stuffing studded with spring onion, chopped carrot and other ingredients were moreish. That gravy with extra briny tang of the clams heighten up the scrumptiousness of the dish.
Loong Seng also offered quite a few special Dim Sum such as Siew Mai with Lap Cheong (Chinese waxed sausage),fish balls in curry sauce and century egg bean curd roll.
Sam’s favourite order for Dim Sum session and the portion is fairly big for her. The porridge was smooth on texture while flavors were robust from the assorted ingredients such as minced meat, dried oyster, century egg and salted egg.
Pan Fried Radish Cake (RM5.00)
Steamed radish cake studded with dried shrimps was pan seared until it has a nice crisp edges. The contrasting crisp layer with the soft creamy center was delicious. It has good robust savory flavours too.
Other non steamed Dim Sum selection.
Verdict: These old school Dim Sum was above average and very affordably priced. I’m definitely don’t mind to make a return and I’ll make sure to get a seat on upstairs, hehe ^__^
