Handcrafted “Dim Sum”@ Jin Yi Restaurant Dim Sum, 3054 Jalan Kampung Baru, Taman Kljang , Bukit Mertajam

Description
A “family-run” dim-sum restaurant that is worth a visit. The first thing that struck me when I walked into the restaurant was the cleanliness of the place which is a rarity in such kind of set-up.

According to the owner, Mr. Ooi, the dim-sums are handmade by his son. My favourites were the eggplant, “ha-kaw”and deep fried yam fritter. Although the dim-sum selection was not extraordinary, the taste and texture of the dough, dumpling skin and filling were pretty well done and tasted good.  They have the original dim sum tastešŸ‘šŸ». I would definitely have to go back to check out the other selections, and I recommend that you too give this place a try.

A passion of a man that started 11 years ago from his little home kitchen. According to Mr Leu’s daughter, his story started out of his love for his wife who loved eating “mantou” and he wanted to create more choices for her.  Today his “mantou” has turned into a business that is very well received by the local community in the neighbourhood.  Those who have experienced the taste of what a good “mantou” is sometimes place orders that are taken to as far as Singapore.  

If you like soft chewy texture that has nice subtle fragrant to each of its creative recipe, you must try Uncle Leu’s home-recipe “mantou”.   It goes really well with a cup of black coffee.  I consider myself most fortunate to be close enough to drive there whenever I have a craving for “mantou, which are sold only on weekends (Saturdays & Sundays).  I have tried many different varieties and I assure you each recipe is always perfectly done to satisfaction.  Nothing beats its originality! Many choices (flavour) to select from; pandan, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, sesame, chocolate, coffee… and many other combinations.  If you like “mantou” you have to at least experience this once.
