Deep Fried Dumpling

At a recent six course Chinese fine dining, I had myself pleased with excitiment and satisfaction again over the taste, flavours and wih the company of Master Chef Leong Weng Heng. I am sure you have read about him on my blog last year where I got the chance to scrumptious his divine cooking. Without fail, I still manage to indulge his delicious deep fried dumplings this time. I remembered during Epicure last year at his cooking class, all his smashing dumplings was swept clean and not a drop left for anyone. Yes it was really good.

During this recent dining, I was informed that the Zing will be lauching the six course meal this week at only RM39.00 per pax which I think is a real jolly good deal on Groupon. Hurry hurry get it now before the deal stops.

It maybe look like a normal lunch date but I was in for a surprised. It was a simple story, a close friend of mine who is a food writer wanted to try out some authentic Chinese cuisine and requested me to arrange something as she was away abroad at that time. She also promised to bring along a special guest. One of the restaurant that I would like to try was Zing as I had meet one of their Dim Sum chef recently at the Epicure. I make the arrangement and we meet up.

It was my first time at Zing. Fabulously decorated with cozy modern back drop. I just felt so at home. I love the furniture especially the chairs but the one that caught my attention was the open concept Dim Sum Kitchen. So equip and so exciting to see, having chefs in action can truly alluring.

Chef Thye Yoon Kong specialising in Dim Sum, introduced larger size of wontons during the class. It was like dumplings. Every wanton skin is filled with 30gm of solid seasoned minced chicken, chuncks of shrimps and chopped mushroom. What make this wontons so delightful? it was the special made sauce recipe created by chef himself, the Szechuan hot and sour sauce. It was very flavourful and tasty.
