Jin Xuan Hong Kong Dim Sum @ PJ Old Town, Petaling Jaya

Another dim sum morning hangouts, Restoran Jin Xuan Hong Kong in the busy traffic of PJ Old Town, was fully packed on a weekend morning. Their dim sum delicacies here are of higher end preparation as they exclusively use premium ingredients such as prawns and scallops in their dim sum. I do applaud them for going away from the typical dim sum dishes as some of the dishes here were made with a twist. However, I was not so impressed with the tasting section.
Salted Shrimps Scallops
 Their deep fried combination of salted egg, shrimps & scallops were a great combination as you can taste the seafood flavouring with a pinch of saltiness in your bites.

Fried Salad Shrimp
 Their fried salad shrimp was ordinary & nothing different than other salad shrimps.

Prawn Sesame Roll 
 I am not sure about this dish name but it was more like a shrimp based popiah roll & topped off with sesame seed. I guess my mind was not fully awaken yet, as all of this shrimp based dim sums starting to taste alike.

Deep Fried Turnip Cake
 Simple but crispy chewy turnip cake deep fried to perfection.

Scallop Shrimp Dumpling & Seaweed Roll
 Their seaweed roll was a steamed pork meat wrapper around with a thick layer of seaweed. Nothing was special. Their scallp shrimp dumplings was rather small and the size of the scallop given on top the shrimp dumpling was rather small compared to the ones in KK.

Golden Bun
 Ahh...their golden bun was filled with oozzing custard mix with salted yellow egg. I am a fanatic to this buns since I tried it in Hong Kong and was loving it since then! However, I dont quite understand why does this buns always cost a lot more than other dim sum dishes?

BBQ Pork Bun
 Simple and ordinary flavour of steamed bun filled with bbq pork.

Pork Congee
 The congee was disappointing to me as it tasted blend with only the crispy youtiao flavour was there.

Iced Coffee
 Some great iced coffee to energize your day!

Wintermelon Drink
 Their homemade herbal drink was great as it tasted great and naturally sweet.

Jin Xuan Hong Kong
Overall, the place was average to me, but prices here were abit more expensive than other dim sum restaurants I reviewed due to the fact they use much more expensive ingredients. If you want cheap dim sum, this id definitely not the place for you.
