Oh yes, another meal with a deal thanks to Groupon ! 3-course Dim Sum Dinner with 7 Dishes at Luk Yu Tea House, Starhill Gallery. Pork-free (RM70.65 value) for RM25 inclusive of service charges and government tax,The timing was rather tight as we only had a few days left to the validity of the vouchers that we had purchased. And when Chunny called to make the reservations, we were told that they could not accept reservations as they were full, but asked us to walk in and try our luck  

The lift from the car park area was rather confusing, the address called for LG5 Feast Floor, but we ain’t see no floor marked as Feast on the lift…why so like that one ? luckily we met a guy who seemed to know where he was going and gave us directions on how to get to where we want to go..We were the no.5 on the  group of people waiting in line to be seated, so we waited to be called…and waited…and waited…I think it was almost after half an hour that we finally got to our seats…we were seated on the outer area where we get a view of bird cages sans birds hanging on the ceiling

Luckily the service was brisk so we didn’t have to wait too long to be served. First up was the har-kau , the skin was kinda thickish and sticky  but the filing was rather tasty, so this was ok .Siew Mai- Steamed chicken and prawns dumpling – when we tasted the first 2 siew mai, Chunny and myself gave differing comments, but then turned out that both of us ate the different version, one being chicken and the other prawns, the prawn version was sweeter and tastier, the chicken version was a bit more meaty and thus heavier ..Deep fried chicken spring roll – these came with the rolls still sizzling but luckily wasn’t that oily, the filings were tasty. We were rather happy with the size of the servings and the quality of the food, not bad lah..Wu kok – Deep fried yam puff with chicken and mushroom – a bit of a disappointment, the yam section were rather thin and thus the yam-ness wasn’t pronounce and I find that these were a bit over fried too. The filings were reasonably tasty though.Wok fried prawns with salted egg yolk ..  the size of the prawns made us rather happy, the prawns were juicy and freshly crunchy.  I am impressed ! Salted egg yolks + prawn = a deadly combination in terms of clogged arteries ? who cares !Fried rice – this was a bit oily and seemed like an odd dish with the series of dimsum that we were fed with, this taste like tomyam fried rice rather than something I would associate with Chinese dimsum, but anyway, I guess it made a good contrast with the dimsum. This was so-soMango sago with pamelo – this dessert was mango-ish without being overly sweet, the pamelo added a different dimension in terms of texture and a slightly sourish and tangy flavour to the dessert 

Oh, i forgot to mention that the meal also came with a pot of chinese tea. Overall, an interesting and enjoyable  meal,
