Dim Sum Brunch at Li Yuan ~ 荔苑点心茶楼


Saturday, being a public holiday, we took the opportunity to  have brunch at Li Yuan Dim Sum restaurant.  There are quite a number of  dim sum restaurants in Ipoh  and I've passed by this shop a couple of times but only decided to give this a try at the recommendation of my neighbour.  The shop is not very spacious and as it was close to lunch time, we were lucky to find a table for the two of us.



Pan-fried Carrot Cake - Rm 4.00.  Very tasty especially with their 'homebrand' chilli sauce.



These fish balls were delicious, tasted a bit different from what I've tasted at other dim sum joints.



Steamed Pork Dumpling with Fish fillet - Rm4.80.
This was the chef's recommendation for he concocted the bunga kantan/ginger flower sauce, only available here in this restaurant.  Yummy!



Steamed Beancurd Rolls with BBQ sauce  - Rm4.00



Steamed Coco flavoured buns with Salted Egg - Rm5.00 for 3 pcs  (Lau  Sar Pau)
But these two were complimentary for us to try.  So kind of the chef!



Steamed Mango Buns, the filling had a good mango flavour  - Rm4.80 for 3 pcs



A dim sum meal cannot be complete without having tried their 'Char Siew Pau'.  I like them for the filling was all lean pork and to my surprise I couldn't detect any bits of fatty pork!   This is indeed a plus point.

They do have noodles on their menu.   Noodles are made by them and again all the sauces are the chef's own concoction.  Will definitely try them on my next visit.

  1. Hi Cheah,

    Everything looks very delicious in this place. Comparing from what we are eating here in Melbourne, the price is of course very very very reasonable :p
