HELLO folks! This week, we take a look at dim sum in USJ 21, Subang Jaya.
But before I begin, I would like to thank reader Peter Chong for pointing out a good makan place in Klang.
Next, reader Mary Lim from Bandar Puteri made a recommendation to try out ‘Kajang Hot Soup’ which she said, was an interesting experience.
Well Mary, I have tried this place out and it’s pretty average. Thank you for the lead.
Mark Chan from Cheras wants to know if there is more than one ‘Fish Kut Teh’ makan place in Tanjung Sepat, Selangor.
Chan said he made a trip to the coastal town and found that the stall featured in this column had ran out of the bak kut teh dishes after the article was published.
“Dear Samo, I was so disappointed. I arrived there late and not even scraps were left. So, I settled for another makan place which is so-so only.”
Okay Mark, there are other places that came highly recommended and I will try them out when I have the time.
For this week, I am zooming in at one popular breakfast joint in USJ21, Subang Jaya called Great Taste Hong Kong Dim Sum.
I discovered this makan place a year ago with my friend Stanley Tan.
The food here is pretty decent in quality and taste.
Recently, my wife Michelle and I rode our Dahon folding bicycles to the shop after completing a 20km ride in Putra Heights.
We parked our bicycles next to a table by the five-foot way and ordered a variety of dim sum dishes including the Hong Kong chee cheong fun (rice noodles) and fried carrot cake.
The dim sum dishes here are sold at RM2.80 per plate while a la carte dishes like the carrot cake and chee cheong fun were sold at RM4.80.
Taste-wise, I would say that the dishes here are tasty and quite decent in terms of portions.
Highly recommended is the fried carrot cake which surpassed my expectations. The dish was tasty and flavourful.
The chee cheong fun, on the other hand, was a disappointment.
Other than that, the rest of the fare were quite decent. My total bill came up to RM36 which is on the high side, but dim sum dishes are quite pricey here in the Klang Valley.
Great taste (GPS N 03 01 526, E 101 34 915) is located at Jalan USJ 21/11, Subang Jaya.
