My Dim Sum

in tasteem •  3 years ago  (Edited)


So I am back to the very affordable dimsum shop but not for the dimsum, am here for the chili paste that made out of squid and dried shrimp! We will get to the detail after this.


There's a range of a la carte menu at the service counter. It's a semi self service restaurant, but do not worry as their staff speaks in all English, Chinese and Malay.

Here's the highlight. If you come to this place during weekday, they offer an all day set menu at a very affordable price. Braised minced chicken rice at RM9.90, and you can choose to have a glass of lemon tea to go with it, or a Chinese dessert. Trust me, you can have lemon tea anywhere, or even at the next door groceries. The dessert is the way to go!

Preserved mustard minced meat noodle 梅菜肉碎捞面

This wasn't included in their set menu, for one obvious reason, it's really good! Why would they promote it when regular customer will automatically go there and order this dish? I like the fact that the preserved vegetable is really crunchy, added with spring onion on it, as soon as I start chewing, the chrunchiness literally explode in my mouth! Noodle is very springy and has a very strong rice smell as after taste.

Here is the highlight, the noodle is only a side dish in my dictionary. This condiment is the key of the significant dish! It's a chili paste with dried squid and dried shrink slices. Having this I can go together by just anything else edible. It doesn't burn my tongue, but rather it brings out a lot of sea breeze smell to anything that goes with it.

BBQ chicken rice + Groundnut paste dessert 烧烤鸡肉饭花生糊套餐

Portion of the BBQ chicken rice is enough, justifying from the palm gesture from my 12 year old. Supposed to come with omelette, but they gave a braised egg is fine too since she likes it. Rice is really soft, chicken is tender, and the sauce is marvelously delicious when they mixed with the rice. Dash of sesame on top of it really bring the taste of this dish to the next level. You'll probably saying I exaggerate by the way I describe it, kids doesn't lie. They will spit it and or eat really slow if they don't like it! The groundnut paste, I will come back again next month, to reintroduce this place as a dessert place!

The bill

Was it cheap? Not it's not. Cheap is the word of the devil. If you eat cheap food, you're being cheap. If you look for cheap food, you're being cheap. So, I'd say it's not cheap, but very much worthy and affordable! For the price I paid, for the stuff we ate, this is definitely worthy at air conditioned environment! As I introduce this part of the good stuff of the restaurant is consider overwhelming. I promised, next time will have other type of food review!


Restaurant located inside Village Grocer at the lower ground floor of Plaza Arkadia in Desa Park City. Not far from Arkadia, roughly 200 meters away from the main entrance of Village Grocer is Central Park. Who knows, after dinner you can come over and have a short evening walk before going home.

Surrounding the central park is about 1.2km walk. So, that's like 15 minutes speed walk, but you can take it easy and enjoy 1/2 an hour walk surrounding this area before going back to your car.

If you're worrying about parking space, well there's an open air car park right opposite of the plaza. I believe there's enough parking at the 3 level basement. And now with this huge backup, do not worry if you can't find a place to park.

Oh wow, looks like I was not the only one :D This is a decent Tasteem report, it deserves some extra support ;) Keep it up.

Weekend is the bad day buddy. I can tell you the pattern here, but I guess the rest of the curator will be watching also. Just try your luck and logon to and find new contest. If possible, checkout who won last week contest and you roughly get the idea, it's a lopsided contest rule where winner justified by payout and number of high ranking high SP voters. With that, you know which is the quality high payout ones and you wouldn't mind to curate at 3mins, because you know in the end that balance 30% curation after burned by curation window will still become tripled.

Thanks for your tips, I have just become a Tipu curator yesterday, haven´t really figured how it all works yet. I will look into it :)

Find high payout author, call for curate before other does. Make the rich richer 😅 ugly, but that's the way it is.

I can see your point but I wouldn´t say it is always like this. With a number of new curation projects with millions of delegated SP who manually browse through the posts and reward great pieces regardless of who created them, solo curators are motivated to upvote good posts by smaller accounts too ;)

Thanks for input. I'm merely stating the fact that tipU is going that route. In already a long time curator for #esteem , don't worry about me. I don't even upvote myself to preserve VP for my curation work 🙂 and of course, I saw a few used to commercialized bot seller now tagging the high payout author, and also gave SOME free votes for curation projects. In a way, yes it's a positive impact.
