For this special occasion, West Lake Garden Chinese Restaurant which is led by Master Chef Chan Choo Kean and his team comes up with a few unique dumpling.
Superior Giant Glutinous Rice Dumpling with Assorted Meat and Chef’s Special Savoury Sauce @ RM118++, by the meaning Giant is really giant to me as this 3kg rectangular rice dumpling can fed up to 8-10 people filled with lots of ingredients, dried scallop, dried oyster, barbecued chicken, lotus seed, chestnut, salted egg yolk, mushroom, dried shrimp and yellow pea. Due to its size, it was steam instead of boiled in the water, the taste come out to be nice, soft texture with all ingredient evenly cooked comes to my liking.
Hong Kong Style Steamed Glutinous Rice Dumpling @ RM28++ filled with dried scallop, barbecued chicken, salted egg yolk, black mushroom, chestnut, dried shrimp and yellow pea. Quite mild in taste compare to the others, still the aroma is there.
Star of the night as this is my very first time I come accross with this flavour is Steamed Glutinous Rice Dumpling with Yam and Lamb @ RM 23++ with yam, dried shrimp, mushroom, chestnut and seasoned lam meat. The meat was soft and the aroma of lamb had soak into rice dumlpling that make it very nice in taste.
Never knew that Steamed Vegetarian Glutinous Rice Dumpling can turn out to be good in taste as this is my first time trying vegetarian dumpling too. RM 18++
Is stuff with ingredients enoki mushroom, abalone mushroom and black mushrooms
Steamed Glutinous Rice Dumpling with Sweet Red Bean is consider more like a desert rice dumpling. Dipping it with some honey sauce that makes it extra kick with red bean melt in mouth n sticky soft rice to chew on. RM12++
As for comes to real desert, this is one of the desert you must not miss Mango Puree and Vanilla Ice Cream And Tempura Durian Puff @ RM12
The Durian puff’s were so crispy on the outer layer with one bite the crack sound was very obvious and the durian meat that they use is good stuff. Then followed by me taking on the bowl of mango puree with vanilla ice cream.
Something refreshing at thee very end of the meal Double Boiled Fresh Ginseng with Sea Coconut @RM12.
I did enjoy myself for this early dumpling session as I always love to eat dumpling, and with the festival around the corner you can place your order at the restaurant and wish every one Happy Dumpling Festival.
