Dim Sum @ Grand Imperial, Bangsar Shopping Centre


This must be the fastest post I've ever done after an outing..I figured since I was gonna post the pics for my girlfriends up on Facebook, I might as well post it on my blog too.  This was an lunch outing that we had today! Carol and I had just decided to meet up yesterday itself and managed to get a few of us out too.So, yes... for those who usually run out and buy 4D numbers/lottery at the slightest oddity - this could be one of those times :o).

I've been to Grand Imperial in Bangsar Shopping Centre before but never did take photos till today.  I usually have dim sum here.  So, when the girls met up today and were deciding where to go in Bangsar Shopping Centre, I threw in my vote for Grand Imperial and there we were shortly after.  As in all gatherings, we talked more than we ate. We covered everything within the short two hour lunch - business, beauty, legal matters and LIFE of course but I must say that we did quite good on the orders. .  While the slim one lamented that we ordered too much, the few of us looked at each other with raised eyebrows as we didn't feel the same. Hahaha...

Assorted Dim Sum

Melting Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun

Our favourite, which warrants two orders was the Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun ... delightful little buns :o)

Roast Pork

Of course, we had the roast pork too.  We love the fork tender, melt-in-the-mouth pork but yet with the ever crunchy skin.  Grand Imperial is pretty consistent with this dish.

Fried Carrot Cake

The Fried Carrot Cake was flavourful but was a tad wet today.

Shrimp Wantons

For something simple, the shrimp wantons deliver - a truly "filled" wanton with  lovely clear broth.

Abalone Glutinous Rice (Loh Mai Kai)

The Abalone Loh Mai Kai (Glutinous Rice) was nice but it was pretty much the usual standard.

Shredded Pork & Century Egg Porridge

We love the Shredded Pork and Century Egg Porridge - with generous amount of Century Eggs bits (me likey!).  The viscosity was just right; while being thick enough it was extremely smooth ... no visible rice grain in sight.  It might have been blended prior to cooking to produce such a result.  Whatever it is, we love it!

Yes, we enjoyed the food and the great company as usual ...  there will be more - gatherings and food, hahaha.  Let's just hope that we don't go overboard with ordering - but then to us few, we never seem to ;o).

I really enjoyed dimsum here my one time here too - and yes, the roast pork was particularly memorable! Did you happen to taste wine in the century egg porridge? It was gorgeous!

J : We ordered it (you can see it in the blurred background of the buns shot) but I didn't take a pic of it.

minchow : Hmmm...didn't taste the wine but I do love the porridge!

A Humble Taiping kaki : After looking, go eat :o)
