One place to have dim sum in a comfortable ambience is at Emperor, the one and only in Grand Dorsett Subang. For pork lovers, sorry to say that it's pork free. However, this multi-award winning restaurant will not fail you with the variety of dim sum they have to offer. Scroll down...

Charcoal Custard Bun was soft and fluffy bun was made from charcoal, with rich and velvety salted egg yolk and custard combination, oozing out in all its glorious golden hue. Simply speechless.

For a man who loves soup, opt for red dates and chicken soup while the ladies should get Dong Guai, believed to improve blood circulation.

The Chicken Salami and Lobster Salad came next in all its lobster glory. I just wish that they could skip the mayo as the lobster were covered by it. However, the meat was fresh and succulent.

The combination of Butter and Prawns will never go wrong. The huge and succulent prawns were deep-fried such that the outer layer was crispy, and then generously coated with rich and savoury butter. Oh man, I need to run few kms for this.

When the next dish of Bean curd with Asparagus came, with a layer of spinach on top of these home-made bean curd, giving it a different texture as well as a unique green top that is healthy and attractive. Yes, it gets thumbs up from me !

Next was Kam Heong Crabs, the meat was again fresh, a typical kam heong crab. Nothing to shout about or complain.

Now, for the desserts, we have Last but not least, a hot and cold dessert of Black Glutinous Rice and Coconut Ice-Cream for that sweet and satisfying finish.

Overall, it deserves a thumb up. I noticed that CIMB World Master Card or Visa Infinite gets 50% discount for 2 diners. It's pretty worth it, I would say. Too bad I'm not qualify for this card :-(
