‘All-You-Can-Eat Dim Sum’ brunch @ Lai Ching Yuen, Grand Millennium KL

In general “All-You-Can-Eat Dim Sum” brunches are great for group dining and for those with an appetite.
After all in a buffet you are required to pay a certain lump sum upfront and thus you’re inclined to attempt to get your money’s worth.

Personally I’m not the eat-til-I’m-stuffed type.
I’m the sort who prefer to eat well, consume quality items and stop when I’m not hungry. Hence buffets aren’t good value for me.

However, the key is to buffets is to pick the ones which serves quality items with a decent selection.
For dim sum, I’ve found my pick.

For RM78 nett/pax, Lai Ching Yuen at Grand Millennium Hotel offers more than 50 types of dim sum comprising steamed items, fried, desserts, soups, steamed rolls, baked pastries and porridge.
The dining duration is 2 hours and 30 minutes, which is fair as the service was efficient so food arrives swiftly enough after ordering.

The ambiance is soothing and elegant. Dine comfortably on you dine using delicate porcelain wares and and ornate furniture.

Baskets of fine dim sum appears you bite into a juicy morsel, and the only thing on your mind should just be “Which should I try next?

At Lai Ching Yuen, the above experience is precisely what an esteemed patron can expect.

Our brunch was delicious.
Besides the dim sum menu, there is are ala-carte options as well so we were treated to nourishing double-boiled soups and some of Chef Thye’s specialities.

This soup warmed my soul and stomach. The lingering sweetness from the essence of the ingredients was marvellous.

Plump prawns in a pliable parcel topped with scallops and crab meat; so fresh and great eaten together with the sweet broth.
