Unexpectedly Nice Foo Hing Dim Sum @ Bandar Puteri Puchong

Well, well, despite Ipoh is quite famous for Cantonese Dim Sum, there are other places that offer you pretty good dim sum dishes. On one fine day, my family and I decided to visit Taiji Dim Sum (庄稼点心), however, to our surprise that, the shop was missing. (Only afterwards, I checked that it was converted into Yuan Le Dim Sum (圆乐点心). ). This will be listed in my to-eat list. Anyhow, since it was closed under renovation that time, we just simply wondered and was surprised that a nearby dim sum shop was crowded with humans!!!!!.........Foo Hing Dim Sum House (富兴点心)

Looking at the crowd, my parents (who are very fond of people), were delighted! As for me, I was taken away with their dim sum displays: Plates and plates of dim sums just made my eyes glowing, my stomach growling and my mouth watering!

As usual, in a normal dim sum place, we order usual dishes such as the fishball, dumplings, fried yum stuffed with porks, siu mai and glutinous rice chicken! Let's do a list review:
1) Fishball was actually not bad, but Ipoh still has better fishball
2) Dumplings: they were not too dry
3) Fried yum stuffed with porks (芋头角): Not all dim sum shop can master this, but Foo Hing did a fairly good job
4) Siu Mai: Hahaha, this is just very typical, okok. 
5) Glutinous rice chicken (糯米鸡)was surprisingly nice, because the flavour and texture were similar to the Ipoh's, but a bit too oily though.

6) Steamed Fish paste was quite similar with the fishball, but the freshness was there, not bad
7) Fried tempura was quite plain, though nicely fried without much oil residue
8) Steamed vege dumpling was quite nice !
9) Their signature Portuguese egg tart, was a must-order from this shop. Their pastry was crunchy and the egg-filling was nicely baked.
10) However, I prefer their normal egg tart, to be honest, because they were actually less sweet and I really loved the charcoal version of the egg tart too.   

While their Portuguese egg tart has been their signature, I was actually blown away by their normal charcoal egg tarts and their salted egg yolk custard bun (流沙包), as you can see, the perfect made buns were shining under the lights, quite inviting actually. My normal way of eating the bun involved removing the bun outer layer, for hygiene purpose. As I cautiously took a bite of the bun, the dripping of the hot and flowy egg yolk custard started to pour out on its own! Yes, it was a taste of foodgasm indeed! (Therefore, a star is given on this dish, as Ipoh Boy's favourite dish from this restaurant)
