I haven’t eaten siomai for quite sometime. Actually, any kind of dimsum would have been heavenly!
This siomai craving (not just mine, but also my hubby’s) started during our trip to Beijing last year. We were so excited to eat siomai, or any kind of dimsum for that matter. Surprise of surprises! Nada! We haven’t eaten a single dimsum. Did we look at the wrong restaurants? LOL. But hubby is a restaurant-goer, he would have known!
We didn’t even have a chance to eat any dimsum back in the Philippines during our month-long vacation last Christmas holidays. We used to go to Golden Fortune Restaurant in Binondo just to have their very tasty shabu-shabu and fresh seafoods and vegetables. And of course, dimsum! A take-out siomai was never missed. You see, we usually go there dinnertime and dimsums are discounted after 9pm.
As Malaysia calls itself Truly Asia because of the convergence of cultures (Moslem, Indian and Chinese), hubby and I looked forward to eating dimsum during our KL vacation. We were not disappointed:-).
Siomai, we gladly had! I almost forgot to take a shot for posterity:-).
I didn’t take note of the name of the restaurant but we ate along Bintang Walk. It’s a long stretch of restaurants and shopping malls and massage parlors. It’s a very active stretch especially during the night. When we were there last week, it was active every night! Oh well, July is Malaysia’s Sale season!
