West Lake Garden Chinese Restaurant’s Dim Sum Master Chef Low Kim Ong


Last we I was invited to have a One to One session with Dim Sum Master Chef Low Kim Ong and we were both rather nervous at start as I expected more tasters be joining me. Surprising, myself, my invited guest and my inviters had a cosy table set near the window with a fabulous Sunway Lagoon view at the restaurant. The lunch Dim Sum here at West Lake Garden had an interesting change of setting, they are moving into all time traditional Dim Sum setting, more casual with Dim Sum carts and a showcase of live cooking. One can witness claypot cooking while Dim Sums take on the bamboo steaming. It was a fabulous lunch for me, it was busy and filled with great sight and sound backdrops with more than 100 variation of Dim Sum at your service. How can one like myself resist such temptation.

Chatz Brasserie

Yes another busy weekend in getting my home stuff done and now I managed some time on this early morning to do a wee bit posting. Travel to Ipoh on a weekend can be so fun. I had a stop-over at Sungkai on the way back and did a great short exploration. I had my Dim Sum-ing lunch while hauled home with the street value of RM100 worth of Dim Sum. Yes I can be so crazy but what can I do as the Dim Sums was truly heaven in this little small town. Craving, craving me!

Endulging The Beauty of Mooncake . . .


I visited the Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur early this week for a Mooncake making demostration by Master Dim Sum Chef Loo Sai Wah of Tai Zi Heen Restaurant. . . got to tell you, it is really an honor to be able to meet the Master Chef of Dim Sum as I am truely a Dim Sum fanatic fan, my favourite Dim Sums are “Har Kau” & “Siew Mai” just like Kate Winslet & Leonardo DiCaprio both are so lovely and so desireable. Anyway my mission was to learn, understand and have my hands all over the mooncakes.


Gosh . . . . an amazing variety spread of mooncakes waiting for me to taste . . . I just felt like I was an emperor at that moment endulging the mooncakes in my beautiful dining room. Sssssssssshhhhhhhhh…… I was a bit greedy as I had also set my eyes on this delighted golden orangy dessert just sitting infront of me, refusingly to leave me alone . . . . a chilled mango puree with vanilla ice cream, sago and pamelo . . . just exactly what I had in Hong Kong last year . . . so yummy especially you are a sweetie fan.


The Chef in charge had already preprepared the chocolat whiskey with walnut ball fillings and the snow skin mixture waiting to roll on.


Firstly Chef Loo roll the snow skin.


Once the snow skin is rolled, chef divided it into a few sub rolls.


Chef then roll the individual snow skin till flat forming a round flat snow skin.



It was time to cover the chocolat whiskey and walnut ball with snow skin.



The snow skin had fully covered the chocolat ball.



Place the snow skin ball into the mold and gently press the snow skin ball into the mold to form the prints.


Once completed, hit the mold gently to release the snow skin mooncake out of the mold.


These were many variety of snow skin mooncakes such as chocolat whiskey, mango cheese cake, sweet corn lotus paste, vanilla custard & gummi bears and lavender with almond egg custard fillings.



Oh! I was so lucky . . . as I got to taste other baked mooncakes available at the Prince Hotel, Kuala Lumpur such as the pandan & pumpkin paste with single egg yolk, white lotus paste with macadamia nuts and also my favourate one, five variety nut with rum and raisins. I truely felt this trip was so worth while and so fruitful as I was educated about the varieties of mooncakes available and yet get to experience the learning from the chef himself, Chef Loo.


Chef Loo, I will definitely be back to see you again . . . but what I had in mind is to get you to teach me how to make the real Dim Sum . . . even if I need to report to the class at 5am in the morning . . . thank you Chef, SidneyK
