Dim Sum Date | Imperial Lamian

Dim sum is one of those food that I crave every so often (aside from sushi) and luckily I have found my favorite dim sum place here in Alam Sutera, Imperial Lamian.

Last Monday I went there with Sam because my 3 o'clock class was cancelled and I thought Imperial Lamian still have their 30% off weekdays on 2 p.m. - 6 p.m. Turned out the promotion has ended :( We still ate there anyway since their price is not too bad. Definitely not cheap, but quite affordable.

P.s. all the pictures in this entry were taken with my iPod since I forgot to bring my camera -_-"

I forgot the name of this, but I think it's "Lumpia Seafood". Pretty good.

Lumpia Kulit Tahu (IDR 9,999 - promo price)

I love this. It's beancurd skin with shrimp filling. The shrimp was plump and juicy too.

Crab Roll (IDR 19,900)

This is a MUST order for me. The crab meat is wrapped with shrimp mixture and they're just great together!

Ha Kau (IDR 16,900)
Ha Kau is always something that I have to order wherever I eat dim sum. The ha kau here is one of my favorite so far. For me, ha kau should have a moist thin skin (since thick skin tends to be chewier), generous filling, and plump and juicy shrimp. These ha kau here checks all the criteria above.

Kuo Tie Babi / Pork Kuo Tie (IDR 15,900)
I have never really liked kuo tie/wo tie/gyoza, whatever you wanna call it, mainly because I don't like the skin (I do love some "pangsit" though), so I didn't enjoy this. It was a good kuo tie nevertheless.

Xiao Long Bao Babi / Pork Xiao Long Bao (IDR 16,900)
Another MUST order when I ate dim sum at Imperial La Mian. The skin is not too thick and the filling just burst into your mouth when you bite it, a warm, creamy, very savory stock with minced pork. Absolutely divine.

It is the best xiao long bao I have ever tried so far. They also have the rainbow xiao long bao with various fillings, but imo this one is still much better and cheaper too and tastier. On the side note, I really want to try the xiao long bao from Din Tai Fung that supposedly one of the best xiao long bao in town. Can't wait for the outlet at Mall of Alam Sutera to be opened.

Bakpao Telur Asin / Bao with Salted Egg Yolk (IDR 13,900)
This is Sam's must-order. I find it just meh. Don't get me wrong, I love salted egg yolk bao as much as I love my Ha Kau and maybe even more, but this particular one from Imperial Lamian is just so so to me. First and for most, they only have steamed one and I much prefer the deep-fried type. The salted egg yolk filling itself isn't as melty and creamy as I like it to be. Overall, just okay.

Es Salju Podeng / Pudding Snow Ice (IDR 5,000)
Ordered this because it was a promo. Quite okay as a dessert, definitely a sharing portion after all the dim sum earlier.
