G-YiTang (聚一堂), USJ 10, Subang Jaya Food Review (Dim Sum Version)

After a fulfilling Steamboat dinner at G-YiTang in late January, I returned to the familiar sight but this time in the morning to try it's delicious dim sum.
Arriving at around 10am, the place was teeming with hungry diners eager to consume some dim sum for their breakfast.

Our table too can't wait to taste what G-YiTang had to offer for it's dim sum.

Over on weekends where the crowds throng, the dim sums at G-YiTang are usually pushed on carts to their patrons while on a weekday, you can order it and get it straight from the kitchen which will see a little heighten in it's taste and presentation. Nevertheless, both are made from great fresh ingredients.

Here are some of the dim sums that were savored by us during the feast.

This one's Chives Dumpling with XO Sauce:
Nice big pieces of dumplings. Tasted more of shrimp taste than chives though so the star taste of this I would say would be the shrimp more. I guess that's probably because of the generous topping of dry shrimp on top along with shrimps inside the dumplings as well.

Steamed Spareribs with Yam:
I'm impressed. It looks exactly like the photo in their menu. LOL.
The spareribs were nice and juicy and flavorful enough even though it's steamed.

Shrimp Dumplings with Scallops:
The fresh shrimps provided some crunch to it while the scallops provided taste to it. So did the other ingredients.

Delicious but the problem I have with spareribs are bones are always too big. But then again, it is spareribs.

Shrimp Dumplings with Angelica Soup:
The soup, as expected, has a herbal taste to it and having the shrimp dumpling in there, well, that's your wanton. LOL. Anyway, unlike the earlier version which is with scallops, since this is submerged in the soup, the shrimp does not provide the crunch but just your normal chewy type.

Shrimp Dumplings (Har Gaw):
These are what you normally get at dim sum restaurants. Anyway, this is the same. Taste-wise okay.

Shang Hai Juicy Dumplings (Xiao Long Pao):
It may not be the best Xiao Long Pao that I've tasted but not the worse. It didn't have that nice soup bursting in your mouth kind but putting it on a spoon was a clever idea to retain the soup for you to consume with the dumpling. However, I do wish it would have better retained the soup inside the dumpling.

Baked BBQ Pork Bun:
Nice texture on the bun and good portion of the BBQ pork with the bun but wish that the BBQ pork bun would stand out more in taste.

Baked Pineapple Buns:
Didn't try this though so can't really comment on it. LOL.

BBQ Pork Pastry:
Also didn't try this but I gather it should be similar in taste with the Baked BBQ Pork Bun just probably with a sweeter taste along with sesame seeds on top.

Egg Tart:
Taste okay. Not as smooth and creamy as the best I've tasted but it does pass off fine.

Siew Mai with Fish Roe:
Not bad. Good to even eat it on it's own without any condiments involved.

Don't know what's this called but I guess it's some Shrimp Siew Mai:
It's also another delicacy that is good to be eaten on it's own without any condiments involved.

Creamy Custard Bun:
When they say creamy, they're not kidding. It is really creamy. Once it's opened up, the custard from the inside just oozes out and best to eat it hot.

Deep Fried Sesame Balls:
This too is simply delicious.
Inside contains of black sesame paste fillings and is certainly a delight that feels like dessert to me. Just awesome!

Rice Rolls (Chee Cheong Fun):
Despite being full, I just gotta eat this as I simply adore Chee Cheong Fun. And it didn't disappoint me. Nice and smooth and gravy enough to cover the rice rolls bases.

There's another unique version of it too and that I believe is with egg!:
It provides some yellowness to the rice roll and roughens it a bit and the taste is uniquely enhanced where it sweetens the taste. A refreshing new twist to it but doesn't really drown out the original Rice Roll taste away.

There were many other items that we savored but I'll leave you to discover them there. :)

Their dim sum is available throughout the day even though they focus on steamboat more during the night. But then again, dim sum is best eaten as breakfast/brunch and steamboat in the night. :)

The Chee Cheong Fun looks very appealing. Not many places make good Chee Cheong Fun anymore. :-)

Yeah, the presentation of that dish really is good. My fave is the Deep Fried Sesame Balls and the Chee Cheong Fun

Kelvin -KtheBlogger- Tan said...

I agree with you. I struggled to find good Chee Cheong Fun that is served Ipoh style but so far, all are disappointing.

Looks yummy!~

Kelvin -KtheBlogger- Tan said...

It is. :)

all the dim sum look really mouth-watering, especially the egg tart, My all time favourite ! :D

Kelvin -KtheBlogger- Tan said...

However, I do feel that the egg tart is okay only. The Chee Cheong Fun is nice and the Deep Fried Black Sesame Balls is too.
