Dim Sum @ Restoran Yan Yan @ Old Klang Road

signage3 May 2008

After eating so much Japanese food, it has been decided to eat something different. I have been reading alot about this place in Low Yat forum where the persons with the nicks sharkteef & stimix have been singing praises about it (http://forum.lowyat.net/topic/661834). Thus, on this fine Saturday morning, I decided to take a ride there. It was not difficult to find if you come from the Federal Highway & turn-off to go onto Old Klang Road. It is on the right at the first T-junction with traffic lights & this junction turns left to go Taman Desa. Thus, you would need to go to the next traffic light to U-turn to get to this place. Coincidentally, this place was also recommended by a friend to eat good fish for lunch though he char siew paualso did mention it was only average in price.

Upon scanning the menu, I would agree that the prices are reasonable for an aircon 24 hour dim sum restaurant, but there are cheaper places like Loong Seng in SS2, Hong Kee in Damansara Jaya or even the 24 hour dim sum along Jalan Ipoh Kedai Kopi Mee Bon.

Among the 4 of us, we ordered 2 siew mai at RM 2.80 each, 2 har kau or king prawn dumpling at RM 3.80 each, fried pork with mayonnaise at RM 4, loh mai kai or chicken glutinous rice RM 3.80, 2 chee cheong fun at RM 3.30 each, 1 with pork & another with prawn, 1 bucket of char siew pau with pieces in it, 1 bucket of sang yok pau at RM 3.80 each, 1 fried carrot cake at fried yam dumplingRM 3.80, wu kok or fried yam dumpling at RM 3 & to top it all off, a teapot for 4 was ordered at RM 1 each.

I enjoyed all the food especially the smooth & powderly fried yam dumpling where it is exceptionally crispy with its juicy & tasty pork in it, har kau where it is abit different from the usual one as they ensure there are always 2 complete medium size prawns piled up neatly for every piece with one outside the skin & the deep fried pork is something that could not be found elsewhere & has a blend of mayonnaise, curry powder & curry leaves taste. The loh mai kai was also abit different as it was lighter in colour yet still gluey though abit lacking in taste while the pau’s were equally fragrant & yummy! Above all, I would need to give special deep fried porkmention to the unique carrot cake as it is not very dark in colour & fried till charred but is light & has lots of bean sprouts & other vegetables in place to provide its ‘crispiness’ & goodness. The chee cheong fun & skin of the prawn dumpling were made white, nice & smooth without the powdery texture as experienced at Phang Key & World of Dim Sum at Sri Petaling.

As a whole, I would personally still return to Yan Yan restaurant. Despites the fresh  ingredients used, this is also a good environment to treat friends as you do not need to perspire to enjoy good food. And the damage is….. I paid RM 46 in total but without any taxes. I was told if I were to order dishes, I would be able to use credit card but would also need to pay taxes.

    Yan Yan is currently having a promotion for their dimsum, RM2.80/dish, i find the price pretty reasonable and the quality of the food is pretty good too.

    Tonite, on 12.12.2010, is the eve of my wife’s birthday and we decide to have some crabs with her HKG sister who is visiting us for dinner in this restaurant. There are only 3 adults and i baby in our group and so we ordered 3 large crabs and order them to be cooked in 2 ways or style. Before we placed our order, we inspected the live crab size and stressed to the captain that we prefer only the fresh meaty type!

    The cooked crab body size ( lucky, the pinchers remain large) differs slightly from what we saw before, and regretfully we noticed a smaill portion (part) of a crab was missing from the our serving plate!

    After finishing our dinner, we instructed a waiter to pack up some left over crabs after counting the balance uneaten pieces. When we got home and decided to eat up the packed crabs left over later for supper, my wife noticed another two portions from the uneatened crabs we had counted earlier missing from the package!

    Anyway, earlier, when we complained to the cashier about the (missing parts) shortage in crab serving, she had rebated 200 gm charge (RM45.00 per kg) from our bill.

    Now, we are equally dismayed again when we discovered we again shorted by another 2 portions of crabs when we requested them to packed and only to know about them when we finally reached our house!

    So patrons, please be more alert and be careful about this in your future visit! Something fishy going on?

    Chew, sorry to hear your bad experience. Anyhow, the last time I went there sometime back, I also felt some of the dimsum did not seem too fresh.

    I have not heard of many people eating a full chinese meal, so not sure if is really recommended or not.
