Hi there, everybody! This is my maiden post...not sure if I'm posting in the correct forum. So...just like the topic title says, which is your fav? Some pics of recent dim-sums I ate (in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)...

Xiao Loong Bao (soup dumplings)

Posted Image
Radish flaky dim sum

Posted Image
Mushroom dumpling

Posted Image
Other dumplings.

Posted Image
Deep-fried cabbage rolls

Posted Image
Red Bean and Peanut Sweet

Posted Image
Longan and almond junket

I like the mushroom dumplings best ...for the texture.

Anything that consists of meat encased in dough is good. (Pie?)

Teepee, where did you eat those? (Or did you make them?)

I had dimsum at the Mandarin Oriental in KL, but yours look more interesting.

having "fried" in the name doesn't hurt either.

I love Xaio Long Bao, and I like the plain sweet pork bao also.

Kikujiro, no....didn't make these. Had them at Dragon-i situated at the Cititel/Mid-Valley annexe. The dim sum there are pretty good..at least the times when I went there, service fast, but a friend said the soup in their XLB were 'missing' when they had theirs.

Indeed.



Actually, my actual favourite is probably shu mai.

But then the whole point of dim sum is a run of many different textures and flavours so I guess my favourites would be whatever happens.

Unless I make it in which case, as an example:

Seaweed and sake broth refilled throughout.

Shrimp dumplings.

Scallion pancakes.

Chopped scallop gyoza.

Lamb and Vietnamese mint shu mai.

Fried dumplings filled with pork and mushrooms.

Deep-fried mushrooms with several salts to dip in. (No breading, just deep-fried mushrooms).

Square of daikon cake wrapped inraw sorrel leaves or in toasted nori with yuzu sprinkled on daikon cake).

Chicken liver dumplings.

Beef blade shu mai with roasted chiles.

Rice with genmai cha.

Another presentation of stuff left.

They would be even prettier if TP made them.

Some chef friends of mine got together in Portland Maine to make some crazy dim sum - I took pics and recorded the affair, then poached some Chinese Internet Radio to add to the soundtrack. Things got pretty out of hand but this recent edit focuses more on the dishes that day.
