With a name as Premium Dim Sum one has a very high expectation of the quality of the Dim Sum that will be served at Premium Dim Sum Restaurant located at 2, Jalan Temenggung 29/9 Bandar Mahkota Cheras, a strong throw from AEON Bandar Mahkota Cheras.
At Premium Dim Sum, the decor is very different from the classic Chinese Dim Sum Restaurant but one that exudes a very modern style setting with comfortable leather chairs and marble table top. With an open kitchen concept, one can experience the sound and bustle of watching your Dim Sum being prepared and cooked.
We have tasted a lot of Dim Sum from street type to old kopitiam to restaurant and up to hotel restaurant. From Dim Sum that are served from the trolley, to ala carte; the difference is clear on the difference of quality in the serving. Each of the restaurant have certain specialty Dim Sum but at Premium, we were treated to the taste bud of traditional Dim Sum.
Another Dim Sum that we love is the Steam Bacon Roll Dumpling (RM5.00). The filling in this Dim Sum is the succulent prawns, which when married to the slight salty bacon, gives it a very nice savoury taste.
We then had the Fish Paste Dumpling (Yu Mai RM5.00). The fish paste has a firm and chewy texture which we like. Unlike most other restaurant which will serve this Dim Sum with a bed of Chinese cabbage; the Chef choose to use baby spinach as the base.
After that it was the Steam Beancurd Roll (RM5.00). Wrap in the beancurd roll is the fish paste which has the same quality like the Yu Mai.
For the Steam Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun (RM6.00), you can have yours either with Prawns, Char Siew or a mix combination of Prawns and Char Siew.
This next Fried Dim Sum which is Fried Sticky Rice Dumpling (Ham Tsui Kok) does spring a surprise to me. When it landed on the table, we did not touch it as it looks too simple and from the look of it; was not too impressive. Upon some coaxing, we decided to taste it and it was very nice with a balance of soft crisp and the filling which has pork meat was very delicious.
Other Dim Sum that we tasted was the Lotus Leaf Rice.
and the last Fried Dim Sum that we had was the Fried Sesame Ball.
In most Chinese Dim Sum restaurant; the normal tea that are served are usually the Chinese tea, but at Premium besides ordering these Chinese tea; you can try out their special Flower tea (RM8 for 2 pax) which were the Lavender Chamomile, 3 Combination Chrysanthemum, Pink Rose + Jasmine, Peach Fruit Tea, Apple Rose Fruit Tea and the Blueberries . Each of these tea are served in little coffee cup and has a very unique flavours, aroma and taste. We love the Blueberries tea.
