Dim Sum @ Le Mei, Le Meridien Putrajaya

Having dim sum with the family is one of my favorite ways to spend the weekend - the smiles on our children's faces as they enjoy their favorite dim sum is simply priceless.

Recently, we checked out the dim sum offerings at Le Mei at Le Meridien Putrajaya and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The Dim Sum Menu is available daily from 12pm until 2.30pm, and includes steamed, premium steamed, deep fried, premium deep fried, congee, baked, and rice rolls. You can view the menu here.



Dine in a five-star environment with excellent service and enjoy dim sum made with finesse.  


Start your meal with one of the signature items, the Oven-baked bun with barbecued chicken (RM19). The baked bun had a crisp, golden exterior while staying fluffy on the inside. The crust is slightly sweet and paired well with the savoury, meaty filling.




Deep fried prawn dumplings are a must-have for us whenever we have dim sum. The prawn dumplings with wasabi dressing (RM25) was crispy, with plump, fresh prawns.



Chloe loves rice rolls, and the Rice rolls filled with shrimp and yellow chives (RM15) definitely gets our approval. Smooth, silky cheong fun filled with juicy prawns, served with a delicious spicy and fragrant sauce. They also offer a fresh scallop version here.



Xiao long bao gets a luxurious touch here at Le Mei. The Shanghai mini dumplings (RM17) are topped with black truffle paste for a heady aroma.



One of my favorites here - the Steamed scallop with baby abalone dumplings (RM28). Beautiful and tasty too! The popping tobiko adds a nice texture and color to the dumplings.



A siew mai like no other, the Chicken and shrimp dumplings filled with mushroom (RM17) is topped with tobiko as well as bonito flakes, for the extra umami kick.


Another premium steamed dim sum item that we tried is the Steamed shrimp dumplings with black pepper seared foie gras (RM28). Unfortunately the foie gras was a little lost in this creation as the portion was a little small. Nevertheless, the prawn was fresh with a bouncy texture.




My darling enjoying her dim sum lunch


We wrapped up our dim sum lunch nicely with two desserts - the Chilled golden mango with sago and pomelo, topped with vanilla ice cream (RM21) and the salted egg ice cream with red bean paste (RM6).

Restaurant Vietnam Jie, Cheras, Selangor

Last weekend, we revisited Restoran Vietnam Jie as Hubby was craving for banh mi. We arrived slightly after 12pm and the restaurant was already busy.

I was happy to see pho on their menu this time... yay! Without hesitation, I ordered this for myself. My bowl of pho bo (RM14.90) came with beef slices, tendon and tripe, along with Thai basil, beansprouts and lime/chilli on the side. I like that some of the beef slices were still slightly pink when it arrived. The soup was hearty, sweet, flavorful and delicious! It was a very generous portion too.









There is also new banh mi on the menu - banh mi thap cam trung (RM11.90) - very similar to the one Hubby had here the last time, plus an additional fried egg. The baguette is excellent - crisp, airy and light (best in KL I would say), which really does make a big difference to the whole dish. They  also sell the baguette only for RM2.50, I'm thinking of getting some next time to make sandwiches at home. :)





We also tried the Vietnamese spring roll (goi cuon tom thit - RM11.60). Each portion comes with four pieces of spring roll filled with vermicelli, prawn and thin slices of pork. Fresh and yummy!

 Stole a picture from our neighbouring table - they were having the hotpot.
