pardon me for not being able to produce pictures of the food for this entry, di mane they are very essential in this. malangnye, we were too engrossed memakan sampai aku lupe nak amek gambar.
anyhow, i’d like to serve a row of choices, even though it’s a little, for dim sum lovers, yg halal. i know most of us ade yg bosan memakan bende yg sama, and some would like to try something different than the routine. bagi yg hantam makan ape saje like me (see the body la), mmg akan senang sumbat ape saje, but for those yg a bit picky, gwe nggak bisa bantu…
ade 3 choices (so far :P) for dim sum yg halal kat area sini:
Equatorial Bangi – the name of the restaurant is Golden Phoenix. checkout this website.
we’ve been in this restaurant for a lot of times. yes, i mean A LOT. most probably because the prices which was then cheaper than now, and because of the ambience and varieties. price for the dim sum buffet was rm38++, but now it’s rm42++, most probably because of the increase of the price of almost everything ;). the dim sum sauce is nice (the black one and homemade chilli sauce). mase mule2 kitorg mkn situ, kitorg agak terkedu kejap la bile nampak menu ciken feet with XO sauce. rupe2nye, the XO sauce here tidak contain that XO liquor.. bukan bukan. it’s just a spicy seafood sauce (quote wikipedia). The sauce is made of roughly chopped dried seafoods, such as scallop, dried fish and shrimp that has been cooked with chilli, onion, garlic and oil. the term “XO” is often used in the popular culture of Hong Kong to denote high quality, prestige, and luxury. well, aku telah memakan kaki ayam yg sgt tnggi kualiti, berprestij dan unggul. bley? kikiki xD. oh, here’s the menu, more or less tidak berubah for months. i do hope they will change it some time :D. dessert die mmg bertukar2. ade one day tu, the dessert was sea coconut with ginseng. sedap! sangat! so me and my fren telah mintak lagi dan lagi, sampaikan in the end, that waiter brought us the dessert, minus the sea coconut, leaving only ginseng roots! hehe. tau pon korg betape menyesalnye buat buffet :P. oh, menu. ni ha:

Cyberview Lodge, Cyberjaya – the name of the restaurant is Xing Zhu. i can’t find a suitable website for you guys to refer to, but this is the website for the lodge. to get to the restaurant, do not enter the main entrance to the lodge, because it is actually situated across the main Cyberview entrance. ade a small papan tande gambor buloh kaler hijau if i’m not mistaken laa..
cant say much about this place, bcos i dont enjoy the food there sangat pon. sedap tu sedap, tp varieties of dim sum x byk. per buffet is rm33++. at that point of time, diorg serve local dishes jugak. ade nasik etc. so memandangkan kitorg choose dim sum, xleh la amek lauk2 lain :P. memandangkan aku telah mengcompare EQ with dim sum sini, dim sum sini doesnt fare much dan adelah tidak menang di hati saye, sekian :D.
Putrajaya Marriott – the name of the restaurant is Summer Palace. checkout the hotel’s website.
tadi je baru kitorg pegi sini. we reached there pkl doblas tghari, and the restaurant yg besar itu adelah kosong lg. we choose the table kat ujung yg menampakkan pemandangan luar yg sgt indah.. yg tetibe dicemari dgn seorang org puteh saiz aku yg memakai bikini dan having the time of her life meng”sun tan”kan diri. haih.
price of the buffet is rm48++, which resulted in around 60 hengget sorg memandangkan kitorg amek green tea yg berharge seploh hengget utk 2 org. when we reached there, mende2 stim ni x siap lagi, so we need to wait for another 10mins. so in the mean time, waitress tu tanye kalo2 kitorg nak nasik goreng ke ape goreng ke, tomyam ke sup ke. and yes, these are included within the buffet! ahaha. aku sgt suke! tomyam die sgt yum yum… :D. nasik goreng, biase je. mcm nasik goreng cina tu. dim sum die pon pretty much like EQ nye gak. bile dh balek, baru aku teringat yg kitorg x smpt rase fried dim sum… waa… :(. tp yg dkt sini mmg layak dtg ramai la baru mcm2 dpt rase. we came 2 org saje, dan waitress tu letak mknan dh penoh meje. kalo dtg 4 org, aku x rase boleh pileh meja utk 4 org. mmg kene amek meja yg ade tmpt pusing2 tu whatever they call it.
the verdict: marriott’s the best. but this is not final. aku belom tgk lg fried dim sum die. nnt nk pegi lagi. hehe.
