A Little Dim Sum Place, SS2, Petaling Jaya

Hubby's mom loves dim sum. The daintier, the better. So there I was, surfing the net, searching for a new dim sum place to take her to, when I stumbled upon a slew of postings on "A Little Dim Sum Place" by Precious Pea and WMW, amongst others.
We ordered char siew pau (it's called honey bbq pork bun on the menu), a staple (RM3.00).
The char siew filling within the pau.
This was my favourite; Sunshine bun (RM3.50).

Inside the Sunshine bun is molten salted-egg yolk custard. The pau tasted like kaya and butter mixed with mashed up salted egg yolk.....simply melt-in-your-mouth heavenly! This had both of us raving.
The avocado katafil (RM4.80) tasted strange, I guess you could say my palate wasn't quite so used to the avocado taste.
The bacon roll (RM5.80) was another winner. Hubby would have loved this.
King of Siew Mai (RM5.50) topped with very fresh, succulant prawns.....I couldn't resist ordering this, being a big prawn enthusiast.
Shrimp cage (RM5.50), another prawn-filled dish, this time deep-fried. Mom liked this one.
The fried radish cake with eggs and beansprouts (RM5.50) was one of the better ones we've tasted. They were very generous with the beansprouts.
We wanted to try the desserts they serve here, but by then, we were too stuffed to eat anymore.
The bill came up to RM38.65 for the 2 of us, ordering ala carte. They have all-you-can-eat dim sum buffet on weekends, I believe it costs RM26++ (or thereabouts) per person.

I didn't know they have buffet now. I went back couple of months back. Sad cos some of the dishes came in 2 instead of 3 while the price remains the same. Some also doesn't taste as good as before.

Precious Pea: cost-cutting the sneaky way lol! buffet is only on weekends, I think they let you order anything on the menu, unlimited.
