DIM-SUM @ XIN TSUI SIANG KITCHEN, JALAN PETANAK, KUCHING

Cha Xiu Bao

Cuixiang Garden is dead... Long live Xin Tsui Siang Kitchen! As cheesy as it may sound, but that's the way it is with this restaurant that has somehow lost its bearing on its way to riches. In its new born-again status, Dim-Sum is its new found salvation to fight off the competition that has been encircling its territory.

The revamped setup features more banquette seating, saved for a couple of round tables in the main hall, and 2 in the private room. Thus it tries to geared itself towards casual dining, as formal dining is limited to six tables only. From the food photos plastered on its walls, its night time dining seems like old times... the way it was before its slight change of name.

If the accompanying photos come with smell and taste, the bunch here are rollicking good... well, better than good for its price... better than the average stuff you get in town., especially those in the coffee shops; but then again this town ain't Hong Kong, London or even Sydney in terms of dim-summy eats. So when a dim-sum shop, especially one whose meat content includes pork, comes along, you'd gladly devour them to your heart's content. But then one shouldn't deviate from the fact that not everything is hunky dory... the last 2 photos paint pictures of plain Janes, such as in looks and tastes; if there's a prize for minimalism, I'm sure they are contenders, but their taste is not comparable to the prices one pays for them - they are the most expensive of the lot.

All the items are priced at RM3.60, except for the porridge at RM4.80, and the noodle at RM5.

Have yet to find really good dimsum in Kch. Banquet's dimsum is quite good but it's halal so it doesn't really count.

Thanks for this.Will try them out.

HNY,

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
