Indulgent Dimsum at Park Royal

Today is the first time I have had the pleasure of eating dimsum, that is not served in the traditional dimsum manner.

Generally, the fundementals of a dimsum experience are, a big round table, large buzzing families, a noisy dining area and many chinese people crammed into one table, around a lazy susan, eating, laughing and enjoying the boisterousness of each other’s company. The dimsum arrives via a clattering processional of multitiered carts groaning under the weight of a kaleidoscopic variety of dimsum trays and the selection begins. Oh, and tea.. lots of tea.


Well, here at Si Chuan Dou Hua at Park Royal, they have decided to add a twist to their weekend dimsum menu. The Indulgent dimsum Buffet at Park Royal runs on Saturday through to Sunday as as well as public holidays, and it includes a huge buffet spread of food, before you even get to the dimsum. Priced at RM55++ per person, it truly is value for money. What’s interesting about Si Chuan Dou Hua is that this restaurant has been around for ages but it still does some great Si Chuan as well as Cantonese food. You will notice that here, gourmet, culture, tea and tradition, all go hand in hand and authentic Sichuan and Cantonese cuisine is incomplete, if it does not come with some crazy kungfu acrobatics. I am talking of course about the expert tea master, who shows off his skilful tea-pouring martial arts, from one end of the long-nosed bronze kettles. Very impressive indeed. I tried to catch the “sifu” spilling one drop of tea, but I failed in my mission. He was just too skilled for me.

Even before the dimsum is brought out, you will get to visit the buffet line which serves a variety of congee, chinese noodles,chicken rice, chinese style glutinous rice, chicken wings, etc, and even a massive dessert section to choose from, as the last course.

Some of the tastiest dimsum we have had

Our favourites include the Wok-fried “Lo Pak Ko” (Raddish Cake), the Shanghai Dumpling, the “Siew Mai” (Steamed dumpling) and my particular favourite was the glutinous rice wrapped in lotus leave (final photo below) which had a terrific number of delectable morsels stuffed in the middle such as mushroom, salted egg yolk and chicken. Super addictive!

Yeah, our brunch cum yum-char session, morphed into a full blown lunch session more like, and there was really too much to eat. If you visit this dimsum promotion at Park Royal, make sure your stomach can handle it!
