King Prawn Dumplings 鳳眼蝦餃皇
Since there was only two of us, we sampled 7 dim sum from Yen Yen A One menu list. Disappointed to say that, both King Prawn Dumplings and Siew Mai weren’t up to our liking. For siew mai, the skin itself was sticky, a little mushy while for Prawn Dumpling, outer layes was a tad too thick, way too chewy. Earned a little plus points for the generous medium filling.
Pork Ribs 豆鼓蒸排骨
Shrimp Dumpling with Angelica Soup 當歸魚湯餃
Pork Ribs was decent, after all it is a hard to go wrong dim sum. Ordered Shrimp Dumpling with Angelica Soup because it looked delicious on the menu, and seems nutritious, packed with herbal goodness. In real, we managed to reach for very light hint of herbal flavours from the soup, could be better. Dumpling wise, fair in taste.
Salad Prawn Roll 越石炸蝦卷
Feeling relieved that, at least, Yen Yen A One Dim Sum Restaurant ‘s deep fried food are worth a mentioned. Our Salad Prawn Roll arrived in huge portion, brimming with bouncy prawns filled within thick deep fried, crunchy outer layer. May be oily but still within acceptable range.
Stir Fried Carrot Cake 香炒蘿蔔糕
Hearty portion, heaped with chives, bean sprouts, preserved vegetables and scrambled egg. Cubed carrot cake was hard and lack of texture, but for RM3, we would say that the Stir Fried Carrot Cake was considered not too bad overall. Add some marks for the distinct wok hei too.
Comments: Total bill in Yan Yan A One Dim Sum Chinese Restaurant came to RM24.50 plus a glass of iced barley drink. Can’t even get an American big breakfast in hipster cafe nowadays with this price. RM3 dim sum is considered very cheap in KL and PJ, but you get what you pay, so do not compare the quality with dim sum from expensive restaurants and hotels. Also, considering that it is air-conditioned restaurant + service is friendly, attentive and fast + 24-hours business hours, we will say that Yen Yen A One is worth a visit if you just want to fulfil your craving for dim sum, not to mention the quality.
