Dim Sum Brunch @ Grand Harbour, Midvalley, KL

One weekend, kids asked if we could go for dim sum. I wanted to drop by at Midvalley to do some grocery shopping, so we decided to have dim sum there - killing two birds with one stone :)

Initially we thought of going to Tim Ho Wan (only Baby D and I have been before previously) but there was a pretty long queue (still!) and we couldn't be bothered to wait so our next option was to try the dim sum at Grand Harbour. 



Grand Harbour serves dim sum and Chinese cuisine and is located at the external shops on Ground Floor (same row as Delicious). If memory serves me right, they also have another outlet in Fahrenheit 88 mall. Other than the air-conditioned restaurant, they also have an outside seating area. We chose to sit indoors since it's already late morning.

Their dim sum is served from 10am to 6pm daily, and you can choose from their signature dim sums which feature lots of "animal" themed dim sum such as quail egg shrimp dumpling (in shape of cute chicks), crispy durian puff (in shape of swans), and glutinous rice ball in coconut flakes (in shape of mice). They also have the regular steamed dim sums as well as fried and baked dim sum, rice rolls and porridge. Other than dim sum, they also have noodle dishes, rice and a la carte dishes.

Ordering is simple - just tick which items you want on the paper menu and hand it back to one of the servers. Service is pretty prompt, though they did forget our egg tarts but all it needed was a gentle reminder.



For me personally, the best dish I had here was the shrimp roe and wantan noodles (RM13.80). My daughter and I shared this since we're both big fans of wantan noodles.  Love the thin, springy noodles coated with the fragrant shrimp roe.


We also had the har gau (steamed shrimp dumpling- RM8.80), siew mai (pork and shrimp dumpling - RM8.80), and steamed pork ribs (RM7.30). Har gau and steamed pork ribs were good, but siew mai was below par as the skin and filling texture was too hard.





We also ordered the crispy salad prawn dumpling (RM9.30) - pretty hard to go wrong with this. Then two desserts requested by the kids - the cute steamed piggy buns with lotus seed paste (RM8.30) and steamed custard quicksand bun "Hong Kong" style (RM7.30). Other than being cute, the piggy buns were a little disappointing (hard again) but the steamed custard bun saved the day. Yummy molten filling! Freshly baked egg tart (RM6.80) was not too bad either.







Did you know Moo Cow does a Buy 1 Free 1 promotion every 15th of the month? Our favorite is still the Original (RM9.90 without topping). 



3rd Dessert - caramel popcorn from Delectable by Su (RM8 per pack). 


Cutie pies ;)

Opening times: 10am to 10pm daily.

Price: Total bill RM88.60

Location: Grand Harbour Restaurant, GE-017, Ground External Floor, Mid Valley Megamall, Mid Valley City, Lingkaran Syed Putra, 59200 KL.
