Siew Kee Dim Sum Sungai Buloh

I saw an offer on LivingSocial for dim sum cash vouchers at Siew Kee so I bought two of it. Each voucher cost RM10 and is good for RM20 cash at the outlet.

Hong Kong style steamed cheong fun with prawns. Not freshly prepared as the dish was served really fast. Not very good, the noodle was thick and not very tender.RM3.80

Steamed Chicken feet (Fong Chow) with bean sauce. Nice and so tender the skin/flesh falls off the bones as soon as you put it into your mouth. RM4.00

Lau Sha Pao with yam paste. RM4.80. I found the skin/dough to be way too thick, and the yam paste/cream in it too thick and not runny at all. Very different from the other flavour - custard and egg yolk I have tasted before where the paste was creamy yet runny, ready to ooze out as soon as you take a bite!

See what I meant when I said the skin/dough was too thick?

Shanghai Xiao Long Bao. RM5.80. Absolutely horrible. One out of the three bao's was completely dry inside, and the other two hardly had any juice left. Houston, we have leakage problem! I think this item should just be taken off the menu.

Where is the juice? Look at that poor, wrinkly, skinny bao :(

Oh well, I will just add lots of vinegar and julienned ginger on it before eating.

Siew Mai. RM4.00. Not very good either. Lots of chewy tendon in the meat.

All the 5 items above and one hot Chinese Tea came to RM22.40. I used one of my LivingSocial RM10 vouchers (= RM20 cash) so in actual, it cost me only RM12.40.

Edit: 2nd visit, and surely the last, just to use up my other RM10 voucher.

Seafood la mian, RM14.80. Three prawns, two green mussels, two scallops, calamari/squid rings and some la la clams minus shells.

The seafood just felt overcooked and tough, especially the mussels and scallops.

The la mian noodle wasn't well prepared I think. All crinkly and not straight.

Nothing special. You can hardly find any century egg in it.

Gingko barley with fu chuk.
