Dim Sum Food Restaurant at Macalister Road Gets Thumbs Up!

As much as I love my dim sum, I do shudder at the thought of doing a post on dim sum eating places. Because it would mean lots and lots of photos of decadent delicate morsels of popping flavour!


However, since I also lament on the lack of decent dim sum in Penang, I just knew I must do this post. Because… Dim Sum Food Restaurant definitely serves one of the better dim sums in town! My family and I like this place so much that we’ve been here almost 10 times since we discovered it early this year! (which also explains my expanding waistline…sigh…)


And therefore, without further ado… the photos (lots and lots of them!)


I usually measure a dim sum place by 3 items – the first being the ‘siew mai’. The ones here definitely measure up! Lots of flavourful meat with a crunchy bite to it. So far so good!

ds4The second crucial item would be the ‘Char Siew Pau’. And I do like the ones here very much! The filling is rather sweet but still agreeable to me. And the buns are nice and soft.

ds6And the final third crucial item would be the much loved “Har Kau”. The ones here have got whole prawns wrapped around a nice soft chewy skin. Its really no wonder that this place is packed especially during weekends!


  1. thenomadGourmand – yeah! yay to me! lol

    food paradise – i think this place has got better dim sum than Maxim’s (in taman pekaka)

    life for beginners – lol. well it isnt really a bad thing…just means more photos for me to edit! 😛

    J2Kfm – yeah. the name’s rather boring! in fact at first i couldnt believe that that was the name of the place! anson road’s should taste the same since they both have the same owner. but i don’t really fancy anson road’s venue cos its dark, hot and stuffy!

  2. Walio! everytime we drop by Penang, we end up sunday breakfast here! that shows how good this place is! Penang’s Best | Dim Sum!

    Big Boys Oven´s last blog post..

  3. ya, their dim sum is delicious with reasonable price. I like to eat there, coz it environment is bright and consider clean and cozy if compare to others dim sum shops.

    Their ha kao, ha qun, ha kok, lotus leaf rice, steam ribs meat, siu mai, pao…all taste nice!
