Dim Sum Brunch at Yuk Sou Hin, (玉壽軒) Weil hotel, Ipoh


It was a privilege to be invited along with three other fellow bloggers to a dim sum review at Yuk Sou Hin non-halal Chinese restaurant, situated on the first floor of  the recently opened Weil Hotel in Ipoh.  We were treated to a sumptuous brunch of Hong Kong style dim sum prepared by their Master Chef Chung Ho Shi who has 38 years of culinary experience, hails from Hong Kong but has been residing in Singapore for many years. Before we left we managed to have a few words with him and squeezed in a picture as well.  

We were ushered to a room and was attended to by Ms Rosa who introduced the food to us as and when they were served.


A very  appetising condiment comprising of silver fish, dried shrimps, some dried chillies, garlic and shallots which paired well with the vermicelli roll that was served later.  And on the right is a healthy appetiser of guava, cherry and some finely julienned lemon skin.


'Har Gow' or prawn dumpling that boasts of a translucent paper thin skin filled with fresh, juicy and crunchy prawns.  The dumpling is steamed and lightly pan-fried, according to Ms Rosa.  The 'Siew Mai with Fish Roe' was uniquely served on a skewer, steamed and panfried, also not a disappointment.



Dim sum is not complete without a serving of 'Char Siew Bao' and for a moment I thought this was 'Woo Kok' or yam puff.  But no, it's Master Chef 's version of  Char Siew Bao ....  'Baked crispy honey barbecued pork bun' which has a crispy thin crust and a sweetish flavourful filling of BBQ pork, steamed and baked for the crust.  To enjoy the crust, this must be eaten as soon as it's served.   The Chinese name for this special Bao is 'Kam Pai Suet San Bao'.


Next on the list is  'Steamed Vermicelli Roll with Scallop and Coriander'  aka 'Chee Cheong Fun' which is soft and smooth and paired extremely well with the dried shrimp condiment.



'Double Boiled Minced Pork Soup with Bamboo Fungus and Chinese Cabbage', a typical Cantonese method of preparing nutritious soup.  A rejuvenating soup which is light and refreshing and the minced pork had a bit of crunch from the bits of water chestnuts.


This is Master Chef's 'Signature Smoked Duck with Lychee Wood and tea leaves'.   Paper thin crispy skin packed with succulent, juicy, tender meat with not much fat after smoking.  Paired very well with the plum sauce.  And a tip from Master Chef..... the duck must not weigh more than 2 kg!


'Baked Silver Cod with Teriyaki Sauce' served on a base of small chunks of pumpkin.  This is really yummy!




And if you're still not full by now, here comes 'Braised Eu Fu Noodles with Prawns'.  Again the prawns were ocean fresh, crunchy and juicy and the noodles were specially imported from Hong Kong.




To round up the 'light' lunch' here's the dessert ~  'Chilled Sea Coconut with Longan and Lemon Juice', cooling and refreshing.

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.

Curry leaf Salted Egg Cookies ~ 咖喱叶咸蛋曲奇 ~ CNY 2017

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
