Wah Kei Dim Sum (华记点心)@ D'Piazza Mall

Wah Kei Dim Sum (华记点心) is a great place at D'Piazza Mall to offer a different perspective from regular dim sum which you have had in Penang. The chef is from Guang Zhou, and has since recited Abracadabra into the dim sum he hand made, and resulted the dim sum here possessed unique DNA traits. A rather average size restaurants compared to traditional dim sum eatery, it may be a little challenge to find a seat during peak hours.

Another note to make: as all the dim sum are prepared by the chef and not outsource, certain popular choices will run out fast.

Cabbage with meat dumplings
We were surprised that the dumpling has cabbage and meat fillings when we thought it would be something similar to steamed shrimp dumpling aka Har Gow (虾饺).

Ma La (麻辣) Dumplings
 We were told regular dumplings aka 烧卖 has finished so we tried all these unique dumplings. The very special one would be the Ma La (麻辣)dumplings as the dumplings are half immersed in Ma La sauce, which added an acceptable and nice oily coating to the dumplings.

A plate of yam rolls is a must try. The yam emanates a strong yam scent through the chimney of the fried rolls.

We only can manage a limited choices of dim sums as there are only 2 of us but I believe a second trip is worth coming. The taste of dim sums offered you a kick and re-register your taste buds' perception on dim sums, as they defied the conventional slightly and most importantly, the dim sum tasted good. All the dim sums will be served hot to you as they will reheat them, as Cantonese really emphasize on the quality of dim sums being served.
