Dim Sum @ Le Mei, Le Meridien Putrajaya

Having dim sum with the family is one of my favorite ways to spend the weekend - the smiles on our children's faces as they enjoy their favorite dim sum is simply priceless.

Recently, we checked out the dim sum offerings at Le Mei at Le Meridien Putrajaya and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The Dim Sum Menu is available daily from 12pm until 2.30pm, and includes steamed, premium steamed, deep fried, premium deep fried, congee, baked, and rice rolls. You can view the menu here.



Dine in a five-star environment with excellent service and enjoy dim sum made with finesse.  


Start your meal with one of the signature items, the Oven-baked bun with barbecued chicken (RM19). The baked bun had a crisp, golden exterior while staying fluffy on the inside. The crust is slightly sweet and paired well with the savoury, meaty filling.




Deep fried prawn dumplings are a must-have for us whenever we have dim sum. The prawn dumplings with wasabi dressing (RM25) was crispy, with plump, fresh prawns.



Chloe loves rice rolls, and the Rice rolls filled with shrimp and yellow chives (RM15) definitely gets our approval. Smooth, silky cheong fun filled with juicy prawns, served with a delicious spicy and fragrant sauce. They also offer a fresh scallop version here.



Xiao long bao gets a luxurious touch here at Le Mei. The Shanghai mini dumplings (RM17) are topped with black truffle paste for a heady aroma.



One of my favorites here - the Steamed scallop with baby abalone dumplings (RM28). Beautiful and tasty too! The popping tobiko adds a nice texture and color to the dumplings.



A siew mai like no other, the Chicken and shrimp dumplings filled with mushroom (RM17) is topped with tobiko as well as bonito flakes, for the extra umami kick.


Another premium steamed dim sum item that we tried is the Steamed shrimp dumplings with black pepper seared foie gras (RM28). Unfortunately the foie gras was a little lost in this creation as the portion was a little small. Nevertheless, the prawn was fresh with a bouncy texture.




My darling enjoying her dim sum lunch


We wrapped up our dim sum lunch nicely with two desserts - the Chilled golden mango with sago and pomelo, topped with vanilla ice cream (RM21) and the salted egg ice cream with red bean paste (RM6).
