I have know this mall Maju Junction, and never step foot into this mall before. Last round nearly ended here for a review on Pizza and last minute I have to work then I have to skip. This round, we are here to hunt for dim sum. I was a bit skeptical when Chris told me Restaurant Oriental Maju Palace a pork free restaurant. Mostly for dim sum, in my mind pork is needed as I have tried a few pork free or Halal dim sum, the taste is just not there.
Here we are on Sunday morning parking at the basement was a wrong decision, as we had trouble finding the restaurant. Really surprise to see the restaurant actually hidden whereby Restaurant Oriental Maju Palace actually operate on the top floor of a car park space inside Maju Junction Mall, you can just drive up the multi story carpark and park right at the front.
Yet after walking into the restaurant, I did not know its actually quite a huge restaurant as they do offer wedding banquet here too. Not only that as time pass by, more and more customers flocking in.
Then I walk around the restaurant and found this nicely decorated section that got me curious and walk further in.
Its actually a section filled with a few rooms cater for private function. This room i huge that can easily host a small enterprise function or family gathering.
If you find that sitting outside that is lack of privacy then you can opt to reserve a table in this private room
As I walk to this counter and I am impress. All the selection you get to see on the display counter are real cook food. Food at this corner are made to order and cook fresh for you. Just pick your selection.
You will be pamper from the selection itself.
Can see that the ingredients that they use are premium and fresh.
Not only that, as what you seen at the counter the food have not included into the menu yet.
Then it is seriously a huge menu.
These are the 3 sauces not to be miss especially the chili oil. The chef purposely made these 3 sauce to pair with their dim sum and fried noodle as knowing our local culture we need some sauces to go after.
The usual, we will kick start off with lighter food then follow by heavy weight.
Chicken pie not to be miss. . .
Pan fried radish cake
Har Kau here sure looks huge as when it was serve some of us were like woahh, what a huge prawn in it and its a fresh prawn not frozen prawn.
Pork free bun – char Siew Bun that surprise me how good it taste like without pork and taste the same as those with pork. Bun are just so soft.
Huge Big Pau that can easily feed for 2 pax.
Comes to steam selection . .
Poached River Carp Medallions
This is what happen when every one is busy taking pictures when our table is filled with lots of food that spread over to next table. We have 10 pax but eat like 20 pax.
Deep-fried Codfish Rolls
What attracted me to order this is Double Boiled Superior Soup with Beef and Enoki Mushrooms. Rarely come accross that enoki mushroom is double boil. Not to be miss.
Braised Noodles Village-style
Fried Radish cake
One of a unique item is water chesnut cakes
Their porridge range is superb cook till its soft and silky smooth that is very similiar to Hong Kong Dim sum that I had when I was travelling.
Crab porridge taste simple, sweet and good. I add in a lil soy sauce and its perfect.
Other types of noodles also available
Comes to the last section which is desert. I will never miss desert during dim sum with its huge selection. Aloe Vera Tarts
Lemon Grass Jelly
My fav that I will definately order is Lui Sar Pau – steamed custard buns has the hot golden lava-like salted egg custard oozing out by gentle pealing the bun. Please do not eat it by one bite as the filling in it is extremely hot that will burn your tongue easily.
Ginger soup, sesame glutinous rice ball.
This is another unique item not to be miss. . .Steamed egg with Bird Nest. Light in taste, slightly sweet at the end and a perfect way to end my tim sum. After all the heavy dim summ, I am seriously stuff with food and even skip dinner on that day.
I never thought that the dim sum here is amazing that is really hidden in the carpark. As it was full house and their normal weekend crowd is pretty good. Filled with families.
There is no doubt now that I can even recommend my malay friends where to have nice dim sum already as they often ask me where got hunt for nice one. If you are asking me, definitely this restaurant is one of a recommended restaurant for dim sum!
