King of ‘dim sum’ in Klang
Story and photos by EDWARD RAJENDRA
THE quiet and enchanting Toh Yuen Chinese Restaurant is a scrumptious secret of sorts shared by the business community in Klang.
It is an ideal place to enjoy dim sum and at the same time meet up with fellow businessmen.
More than 30 varieties of dim sum are offered at this eight-year-old restaurant.
Once you are seated, a waiter brings a tray bearing the day’s varieties.
It is difficult to pick out the best of the lot but the white fluffy cotton-like pau with barbecued chicken filling is a special favourite.
Klang Executive Club senior marketing manager Low Hong Ling said the restaurant was popular among businessmen due to the fresh dim sum.
“We steam the dim sum only when orders are placed,” said Low.
“Gradually, this concept of serving dim sum became our selling point.”
Besides being favoured by businessmen, Low said the restaurant was also perfect for family get-togethers on the weekends.
Many of these businessmen and entrepreneurs make new contacts at this restaurant, according to Low.
“Here, they are able to find the ‘who’s who’ of Klang and Shah Alam business society and this allows opportunities to seal business deals.”
The waiters here have a role to play – they help explain to customers the ingredients that go into each dim sum.
“This lends a personal touch to choosing the dim sum,” said Low.
The chefs who prepare the outlet’s dim sum have between eight to 16 years’ experience each.
Senior chef Loke Siak Ling said the dim sum must be eaten without any sauces to be able to taste its freshness and sweetness.
“Most of the time people failed to identify the true flavours of the dim sum as they ‘drown’ them in tomato ketchup or chilli sauce,” he said.
Loke said the Chicken Pau and Carrot Cake were favourites among his Malay customers who were mostly from Shah Alam.
Customers can enjoy the dim sum at RM18.88++ per adult.
Senior citizens enjoy a 50% discount, while children below 12 years old are charged RM12.88++ per child.
