Pudu, KL – Tuck Cheong Dim Sum

Hustle and bust of the city, this dim sum demonstrates just that, packed with almost all the tables full 90 percent of the time and the restaurant is trying to keep up with customers’ orders replenishing and serving dim sum. Parking can be a bit tough here, best is to park Jalan Landak and walk down as you can see most of the cars double parked here at the inner of Jalan Kancil. Its only 6.45am and its already packed!

The immediate feeling I got from this place is it gives you a very good warm weekend breakfast feeling a comfortable homely neighbourhood. With many houses above the shops here, you will noticed that a lot of senior folks occupy this place for breakfast to catch up with neighbours, friends and chat away with hot dim sum and chinese tea.

I would not describe the food here as great, base and texture is there but I feels it lack taste and a bit ‘rough’ type of dim sum, but can be a good thing, meaning less salt and less flavoring! These are just simple and hearty breakfast serving the local neighbourhood.

The most popular thing that everyone eats here is not their dim sum but their chicken rice! Yup, chicken rice in the morning. Its actually chicken with mushrooms and chinese sausages steamed on top of rice then covered with some spring onions and sauce when cooked. Its a bit dry on the rice as the sauce is little but the chicken are soft and tender, something different… if they have salted fish, this would have been a blast in my opinion but then again, they serve food light in taste here?

The dim sum are alright, the average and not salty type like I mentioned, I tend to take it as less salty = less artificial flavoring ;).The loh mai kai (chicken gloutonous rice) looks good, having chicken, a piece of bbq pork (char siew) as well, looks well sauce and moist, just again not salty enough, healthy again ;).

Quite a bit of the folks here also ‘da bao’ (pack) takeaway of chee cheong fun and fried meehoon from the stall nearby and eat here, looks quite interesting, will try it the next time.

To order, you have to get your table, then walk up to the main steamer, grab a tray and order away. Best if you can decide what you want quickly as the queue seems to get long and you will experience that as you are about to select that particular dim sum, a hand come in and grab it away from you. That is how fast things sell around here, so be precise, be fast ;). As for tea, the aunty there will bring it around to your table, don’t worry about that.

It cost us RM29.80 for tea for 4, 8 dim sum, 1 loh mai kai and 1 chicken rice. Not cheap at all, then again what is nowadays? Thanks to the inflation chain caused by the senseless hasty fuel increase :(. I have a good feel having breakfast at this place, not bad, feels healthy too ;).
