Dim Sum Breakfast with the family

If you have been following my blog for a while, you would know how much I love having dim sum for my breakfast, so when my family told me that they found a new dim sum restaurant, I was more than obliging to go there for breakfast!:)

Koo Hiong restaurant is located near the morning market in Bandar Sg Long, and it is a relatively new place for dim sum in the area.
I liked the prompt and friendly service provided by the owner and his workers.
Nothing was too much trouble for them; if the dim sum is not hot, tell them and they will just reheat it for you. If you need more hot water for your tea, tell them and they will get down to it.
This, is what I call service!:)

Now onto the selection of dim sum for my weekend breakfast:

This has got to be the best version I have ever had; the crystal skin was just nice and the prawns were in generous portions and sizes that it was just so crunchy and juicy.
(I am craving for this now!)

Most of the dim sum here are priced from MYR2.80 onwards; and maybe some lower and with a great service as mentioned, that makes it good reason enough to be back.

What's better than dim sum on weekends? It's like one of the most staple meal option for my weekend breakfasts!:)

What do you usually have for your weekend breakfast? ;)

  14. Hey Yum List,
    Hmmm...I am still thinking...coz I didn't really try a lot in KL since I am only back there once in a while.
    But if I have to pick, I'd have to say this one, at the moment...LOL :-)
