Whenever I drive passed Best Friend Dimsum Restaurant, I find it to be enjoying brisk business, so, I guess it was about time we check it out and see what all the fuss is about.
This fried roti thingy filled with bits of prawns and meat had a fluffy texture and the filing was pretty tasty which went very well with the mayo that was provided
Pork ribs – the meat had an interesting Chinese herbs flavour but it was a bit tough though.
The minced pork wrapped fu-pei ( soya skin) came in a reddish sauce which I will describe as tasting like spicy tomato sauce, I didn’t quite like it- it was kinda overpowering and didn’t ‘jive’ with the dimsum
Fishball wrapped in fu-pei - had the same sauce as the beforementioned which spoil the fun lah.. the texture of the fishball was ok – I washed away the sauce with some Chinese tea and found it much improved
We ordered century egg +lean pork porridge but the waitress must have forgotten and served us chicken shreds +chicken floss porridge , if you like smooth and fine porridge you would probably not like this as the rice grains are still intact and kinda lumpy, the meat floss was a bit sweet which didn’t went well with the porridge
Fishball wrapped in seaweed – this had a nice texture and taste good too
Thingy wrapped in wantan skin – this was the best amongst the lot. Yummy
Char siu pao – the dough was kinda flat, lacking in fluffiness and puffiness . The filing was reddish ( boo hoo..i want this in black gooey sauce ) and had a strong taste of something resembling Chinese red wine.
Wu kok ( yam puff) – had the same filing as char siu pau above ( deduct some points) and the outer yam layer was kinda thin for my liking
The unit price of each plate of dimsum range from RM2.50 to a max of RM 5.50, for our meal above including a pot of tea, costs us RM31.80 which is about typical for a dimsum meal.
Overall, I find the dimsum average. The service was good –friendly and efficient
They are closed on the second Tuesday of each month.
