If there’s a breakfast that can put a smile on your face, it must surely be proper Hong Kong style Dim Sum.
When it comes to Dim Sum, you have plenty of choices in town, but few offer as many varieties as Jin Xuan Restaurant does.
Ever since they started operations a few years ago, the restaurant has steadily picked up in business and has become one of the most popular Dim Sum destinations among Petaling Jaya dwellers.
Situated in Damansara Jaya right next to the Atria Shopping Mall, getting a parking space is usually quite a lot less troublesome than getting a table on weekends.
They have a decent numbering system and a shady waiting area under a tent, complete with a few opportunistic hawkers offering fruit rojak and soya bean drinks, so your wait is usually not too tough to bear.
Once you are seated, like all Dim Sum places, ordering is usually not necessary.
Servers pushing various trolleys of Dim Sum will appear right in front of your table, and all you need to do is pick what you want and start eating.
Like in conveyor belt sushi restaurants, the pricing of each dish is determined by the colour of the plate used.
This removes the need for the server to jot down what you ordered on a piece of paper like other Dim Sum places. This system is a lot more efficient.
There are a few broad categories of food you can order here. Steamed Dim Sum, deep-fried dishes, various types of bao (steamed buns), porridge/chee cheong fun, and even a few non-Dim Sum dishes.
Most of the dishes at Jin Xuan are exceptionally delicious, with a few that are fantastic must-tries.
The number one item to order from the menu is the fried scallop with salted egg. You cannot get this anywhere else, and you will absolutely love it.
The “lau sar pau” is another delicious dish that you must have. Another salted egg based item, but in liquid form flowing out all hot and tasty when you bite into it.
Other commendable dishes are their fried chicken wings, porridge, and other classic Dim Sum items.
Prepare to spend about RM20 per person and an hour of your morning and you’ll start your day on a good note.
