Saturday morning, a non working day. Suddenly has the urge to eat Dim Sum. Looking at the clock, is 7am. Ok, lets go Jin Xuan Kuchai Lama. Expecting to reach before 8am therefore the crowd has not started. Otherwise, it will waste my time waiting for table. As mentioned, the restaurant is only 30% occupied upon reaching. They have air-con seating area and non air-con which is just front of the restaurant. I prefer to dine with air-con.Notice that the menu still the same as before, Im referring t

Notice that the menu still the same as before, Im referring to 2 years back. Good, showing good sign no adjustment on pricing. Agreed?!
Quickly place the order and wait for foods to be served. As usual, beverages will be the first to serve. I have ordered King Tea RM6.50 this time.
HK Shrimp Rice Roll RM4.80 is my favourite food. It serves hot, serve together with Dried Shrimp Chilli. I like the texture of it as it is very smooth and the prawn is huge & firm too.
I have ordered one more plate of Plain Rice Roll RM4.80, two is better than one. I love the taste of the soy sauce, not too salty yet it has the fragrant of it. Indeed good!
Siew Mai RM4.50 is one of the signature Dim Sum here. Each basket of the dim sum will comes in 3 pieces. All dim sum sold here are made to order to guaranteed the freshness of the food. I like the Siew Mai here, the balance of fat and lean meat as well as prawn which give you a good mouth feel of it.
Seaweed roll RM4.50, something light. The filling just taste similar to Siew Mai but it is wrapped with seaweed in outer part.
Stuffed Green Chili RM5.00, the green chilli has pan fried before hand prior to the steaming then serve with the thick gravy. You hardly can see stuffed green chilli in most of the stalls but red chilli which is the common version of Yong Tou Fu. Anyway, this chilli is not spicy at all.
Sticky rice lotus leaf RM4.50, pipping hot soft glutinous rice with dried shrimp. Light fragrant of lotus leaf that I can smell upon serving. Taste is just on my liking. Tasty and satisfying.
Lastly, is the Pan Fried Shanghai bao RM5.00. Thin layer of skin and generous amount of filling. The mince meat filling is very juicy and succulent. The skin was being pan fried therefore it has the "wok hee" fragrant on it. It is not oily at all. Good!
Jin Xuan Dim Sum would never dissapoint me with the food they serve. I happy with the food quality and pricing as well. I definitely will be back again. My concern is I have to wake up very early morning just to beat the queue. If really want to enjoy good food, queuing is worth it perhaps. ;-)
