RM38++ Eat-All-You-Can Dim Sum Buffet @ One City, Subang Jaya

It has been a long time since I last had such a satisfying dim sum feast on a fine Sunday! For only RM38++, I get to choose over 42 items on Sky Palace's Dim Sum Buffet menu and eat my heart out. Imagine I can order unlimited baskets of Xiao Long Bao, Prawn Dumplings and Roasted Pork; How awesome it is!

All-You-Can-Eat Dim Sum Buffet
- Only available on Sunday and Public Holiday
- RM38++ per adult 
- RM28++ per senior citizen (above 60 years old) / child (10 years old and below)
-  Include tea and snacks
- Dining hours: 8.30am - 2.30pm
Here's the complete menu of the dim sum buffet.

Since the buffet starts at 8.30am, it is advisable to make reservation, visit the restaurant early and enjoy the dim sum fresh from the kitchen. Approaching 11am, the restaurant is almost fully occupied with large family crowd. 

Roasted Meat Plate - Pork, Pork Belly, Duck (各式烧味 - 叉烧,烧肉,烧鸭)

Apart from the piping hot steamed and fried items, they even have special roasted meat on the menu! The roasted meats here are very well-flavoured, crispy on the outside and moist inside, and my personal favourite goes to the roasted pork belly because of the extra crisp and crunchy texture it gives upon each bite. 

Steamed Fish Ball with Garden Green (清蒸潮州鱼卖)
Steamed Prawn Dumpling with Water Chestnut and Parsley (手工鲜虾饺)
Shrimp and Pork Dumpling (干蒸烧卖)
Steamed Herb Dumpling (药膳果球)

As much as we want to have another helping of the delicious roast, there are lots more steamed, fried and claypot dim sum items that we gotta try! I love how the Har Gao and Siew Mai are generously filled with "real" meat that tastes fresh on the palate. Same goes to the steamed rolls and dumplings, they are equally rich in flavours and keep us going for more!

Steamed Bean Curd Skin Roll with Supreme Oyster Sauce (蠔皇鲜竹卷)
Szechuan Dumpling in Red Sauce (四川红油抄手)
Steamed Bamboo Roll (黄金鸡扎卷)

Special Mushroom Oat Bun (当红蘑菇包)
Steamed Char Siew Bun (笑口叉烧包)
Steamed Shanghai Siew Long Bao with Pork (上汤小笼包)
Special Homemade Glutinous Rice with Chicken (腊味家乡糯米鸡)

For something more filling, the steamed buns are highly recommended! For instance, the sweet porky Char Siew filling and molten egg yolk custard are equally appetizing, despite of them falling on the sweeter side. Another must-have item is the Shanghai dumpling that explodes with porky soup goodness as soon as I poke into the thin and smooth hand-crafted skin. 

Hong Kong Egg Yolk Bun (香港流沙包)

Rice Noodle Roll with Japanese Scallop (日本鲜带子肠)

The Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun here is pretty interesting, as it not only comes with BBQ Pork and Fresh Prawn fillings, but also available in Japanese Scallop and Shredded Crispy Duck flavours. I am surprised that each scallop is so huge and fresh, totally fresh and melts perfectly with the soft rice roll. 

My stomach is already half-stuffed when the deep fried dim sum arrives! Looking at the variety, I can see the restaurant has put in alot of efforts to create unique and creative items to cater for the most discerning palates.

Oven Baked Char Siew Puff Pastry (密汁叉烧酥)

One not to be missed is the freshly baked pastry which is served piping hot from the oven. It is definitely worth the wait, as I enjoy the crispy crust layer with sweet chunky pork filling. So aromatic and addictive! If you're into sweet stuff, then the custard-filled Polo bun is a great option. 

Oven Baked Polo Bun (马可波羅包)

Stir-fried Radish Cake with Prawns (虾球炒萝卜糕)

Deep Fried Crispy Yam Puff (峰巢芋角)

I am not a huge fan of deep-fried items, but this crispy yam puff is just so irresistible! Love the soft texture of the yam without being too mushy, and the filling does not feel as heavy as those I have tried. Plus, it is not overly greasy for my liking. 

Pan Fried Double Taste Fish Cake with Garlic Flavour (香煎渔民肉饼)
Chinese Spring Onion Pancake (香煎葱油)
Crispy Rice Crum Roll in Thai Style (泰式香酥米花卷)
Pan Fried Shanghai Dumpling (上海煎锅贴)
Crispy Scallop Ball Cheese Dumpling (香酥带子球)

Braised Yellow Wine Chicken in Hakka Style (客家黄酒鸡汤)

Apart from the dim sum in baskets, I am delighted to see several premium items served in claypot here. Great for warming the stomach with the soup, before tucking into the meaty dishes. Among the three, the beef brisket receives the best response because of its thick flavourful gravy and well-marinated meat.

Guang Xi Tau Po (鱼汤廣西豆卜)

Beef Brisket (拉肠牛腩煲)

Verdict: Overall, the dim sum is of good quality, fresh and unique in some ways.
Highly recommended for family and friends' brunch gatherings on Sundays and Public Holidays.
