WEST LAKE GARDEN’S NEW 100+ ALL-TIME DIM SUM AND OTHER FAVOURITES FOR LUNCH DAILY

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.

Belanga Empire

The Empire Shopping Gallery located at Subang Jaya was my next stop and I was to meet up with Zarina and her husband for a meal. Belanga was picked as we wanted to try out the Kelantanese cuisine. The place was simple and decorated with sophisticated “belanga” or cooking pots made out of clay.

The space was also filled a marching of beautiful white painted chairs and the walls were filled with dark brown wooden paneling and luxurious crafted ‘songket”. They were so noticeable and were truly gorgeous.

Berbuka Puasa at Istana Bambu Hulu Kelang – Ampang

1 Entrance
**The Entrance

Coming out form the end exit of the Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway (DUKE), I can’t help of not noticing the newly constructed bamboo cladded building on my left. It was truly an eye catching structure. It was called the “Istana Bambu”.

2 Waiting Area
**The Waiting Area

The detailing of the exterior and interior of this restaurant truly captured my heart. It was beautiful constructed. Even the walkway heading towards the pavilion was cleverly crafted out from bamboo strips. The both sides along the walkway laid a man made shallow pond came with a “padi” planting, a gorgeous setting. I felt like re-living out on a kampong scene.

Fish Paste Stuffed Mushroom with Fresh and Dry Scallop

I personally love this dish, lovely to see and yet lovely to eat. This is stuffed mushroom with fish paste top with fresh and dried scallops. This dish looks so gorgeous that it can stand alone as a main dish by itself and that is what I have done with it. This dish is not that difficult to make but need a bit of time as you need to soften the dried chinese mushroom and also the dry scallops. I got to say this dish looks expensive and really delicious.


1 medium size brocolli
10 dry chinese mushroom
10 whole scallops
8 large dry scallops
150g fish paste


1. Soak dry mushrooms and dry scallops ina bath of hot water, prefer to soak over night until soft.
2. Once the mushrooms soften, scrub of the black skin of the mushroom, boil the mushroom with water and sugar.
3. Once the dry scallops are soften, break them up.
4. Fill up the mushroom with fish paste and top with a fresh scallop.
5. Use the dry scallop floss to decorate the side of the fish paste.
6. Steam the stuffed mushrooms for about 20-25 minutes.
7. Cooked the brocolli.
8. Place the brocolli and mushrooms onto the serving plate.
8. Make some oyster sauce and place the sauce on top of the mushroom and brocolli.

It is a dish that should be presented on your dining table for your special guests. Enjoy!

Yours Steven Cheng
