Axian Dim Sum

Saturday, July 18, 2009

We were in Bandar Puteri Puchong in the morning for the purpose of going to Bakewithyen to do some baking stuffs shopping. At first, I had suggested to Hubby to have Dim Sum in one of the Dim Sum restaurant's branch that we frequently visit but once we parked our car nearby the restaurant, I had spotted another Dim Sum restaurant nearby. The name of the restaurant caught my attention - Axian Dim Sum. At first, I was thinking whether is it coincidence the restaurant owner was named Axian or is it the Axian that hosted the show Taste with Jason. Since we were tempted to find out more, we had diverted our direction to this new Dim Sum restaurant. As soon as we entered the restaurant, it was packed with people and the tv host Axian's picture was display in the restaurant area. So, our guess was correct, it was really Axian - the tv host and now he's the Dim Sum restaurant owner as well.

Overall, the Dim Sum in the restaurant were okay; not bad but not really that great either. The only Dim Sum that I found that was special will be their specialty; Lau Sar Pau - creamy egg custard bun. I loved the hot pipping eggy custard that burst into our mouth once we took a bite on them. Superb! Their Char Siew Bau and Siew Mai were good too. The char siew fillings was sweet and the pau skin was soft, tender and not too thick while the taste of Siew Mai was just perfect; they were generous in their pork fillings too.

The rest of the Dim Sum we tried was just mediocre. Nothing to shout about. I guess I still prefer the other restaurant nearby and of coz the best Dim Sum will still be in Ipoh. I am so craving for Foh San Dim Sum now.....
