Dong Yi Shun, Kelana Jaya Food Review

So far in my entire life, I've only eaten China Muslim food once and that was back then during the road trip when the Almera was launched.

Knowing of such dish's existence, I intend to find one that would be phenomenal according to my taste. So I decided to try out Dong Yi Shun:
Dong Yi Shun is a simple and plain restaurant where it's interior has both Chinese and Muslim style influence in it's ambiance.
It's fruit juices are made from real fruits and the mango juice that I tasted is not too sweet but the sweetness tends to come from the mango itself.

This is the Golden Empress Fragrant Fish:
Fish is okay and I find it relies heavily on the sauce for taste which is sweet.
Spicy Chicken with Dried Chili:
The chicken is indeed spicy and the dried chili, hard and probably best to avoid eating as the spiciness screwed up my taste buds on tasting some dishes that was later produced.

Anyway, moving on is the Xiao Long Pao:
Disappointed on this one because it seems to have sit for too long. The skin of the Xiao Long Pao is rubbery and thick and overpowers the taste of the meat inside which is not much. A good Xiao Long Pao has it's juicy soup flowing out from the inside but this one had none at all.

Pan Fried Chicken Dumplings:
This is not bad. The minced chicken inside is flavorful and in whole nice to eat.

Golden Salted Pepper Prawns:
Prawns are not what I like to eat but I took a small one to try it out. It's full of interesting flavors in it and quite salty but then again, it's supposed to be salty hence the name. The one thing that I didn't like about this dish is that it's fried with the tail that contains the prawns' shell at the end of it. This was hidden due to the exterior and could provide an unpleasant experience when you unknowingly bite into the prawns shell.

Here is the Zi Ran (Cumin) Lamb:
This is the best dish that I've tasted in this restaurant. I like the taste of Cumin Lamb and it has always left me wanting more everytime. In this case, it also had me wanting more. The meat was nice and tender and the seasoning on the meat really is the highlight flavor: a little saltiness, a little spiciness where I could just eat it on it's own.

This is Spicy Sliced Potato:
By now, I'm sure you've figured out that most of the dishes tend to come with spiciness in it. If you're a person who can't take spicy, best to ask them to tone it down or none at all by preparing it another way when you order. Strangely, for this dish, I somehow tasted it to be gingery and couldn't taste the potato even though I took a mouthful of it. Maybe my taste buds were a little wack at this point.

This is the Dong Yi Shun Four Season Mixed:
Done in a clear manner, the vegetable tastes are apparent.

Mushroom Prawn Lamee:
The noodles that they have are all handmade in the kitchen so it ensures freshness and nicer to eat. The highlight of this dish is the noodles in itself, the soup and ingredients thrown in together were just so-so.

And finally, we tried the Hot & Sour Soup:
Despite having a nice taste to it, it's too spicy for my consumption on it's own and hence I'm only able to drink 3 spoonfuls of it.

Dong Yi Shun is at: C-G-06 Ground Floor, Dataran Glomac, Jalan SS 6/5B, Kelana Jaya, 47301.
It's open everyday 10am-10pm
