Dim Sum @ Emperor, Sheraton Subang

The Emperor is a traditionally themed halal Cantonese restaurant, located in Sheraton Subang and one of my preferred restaurants to have halal dim sum.

The dim sum pre-requisite, har gow (prawn dumpling) with scallops. I think it is called "tai zi gow"?
The dumpling was good. Fresh, big and juicy seafood. Plus points for the not to thick nor thin crytal dumpling skin.

Here's how it looked inside...

Some Crab-stick Roll (this was pretty average for I am not a fan of imitation crab meat)

This is more like it, the real thing. Crab Claw dumpling.

One of my usual favourite dim sum dish, the "wu kok" (deep fried yam dumpling).
Again, the wu kok here was just pretty average for me.

Mango Prawn Roll
Mmm..., rather nice as I recall.

Dessert: Lemongrass Jelly with Chocolate Chip Peppermint Ice-cream
Utterly disappointed with this. Very plain indeed! Jelly tasted rather bland and the ice-cream tasted like it was one of those common commercial brands readily available in supermarkets.

Hi daphne,
I have been to a chinese wedding reception at Sheraton Subang a few times. Overall, I will rate it ok. Food is not that great but better than most hotel banquet-style food.
Btw, congratulations on your impending marriage!

Hi Jason,
Did my post come across sounding bad? Oh dear, didn't mean for it to be so. Some dishes were not that good but some were alright. Like most dimsum places, the dimsum dishes orders are usually hit-and-miss. :)

Hi joe,
Sometimes, 'halal' dim sum can be rather good too. ;)
