  • Elias Pena Martinez

    I didn´t like the dim sum in metal steamers. I will always prefer in bamboo. Although the sizes are nice. And what you say about less greasy feeling also sounds good. But as all things, there are pros and cons. Likes and dislikes. Thank you and keep on doing great. I have a friend with flat buns, I will tell her to put some sesame on them. jajajajajaja!

    Few people drink mix drinks. You missed out the very creamy white coffee, that's a $150 million export from Ipoh, miss out in Menglembu peanuts, also a huge export from Ipoh. Then the flaky Chinese cookies.....The best dim sum is Foshan Dim Sum restaurant.
