Dim Sum @ Red Tea, Far Lim

Sunday is normally Dim Sum Day if we do eat out for breakfast. There is only one place PiggyBeng will go to and that is Red Tea which is located just opposite the old Sunshine Far Lim warehouse. Why only this place? All because of the huge parking space available on the ground of Sunshine Far Lim! 🙂 Finding a parking lot on a Sunday morning at all the makan places is a daunting experience in Penang, if you know what I meant!!!??? ;p

We used to patronize Red Tea frequently before we have Baby G but gone less since that Samseng don’t sleep much so we would try to keep her in bed if she can sleep on. If we do go, we have to leave the house at 8am as the weather here is just too hot and humid to stay on after 9am at those open space food places.

Red Tea is open everyday except on Monday… if I’m not mistaken. They are operated by the same boss of Red Bali. The dim sum items are nothing the shout about as they are more or less the same with other dim sum operators but they are unique in their own ways… they often comes out with new recipes and designs to entice their customers. On weekdays, they will serve the customers but on weekends it is self-service since they have more than 100 of tables!

Here are some of the items we usually order…

Meat patty on bread – deep fried with bread crumbs sprinkled with mayo

.

.

Scallop on minced meat…

.

.

PiggyBeng’s favorite – Scallops & Prawns rolls (wrapped in bean sheet)…

.

.

They also serve fried noodles on request but sometimes they will do a big batch on weekends. This is fried beehoon with fried fish slices which tasted damn good with some sambal belacan! 🙂

.

.

Their yam puffs or ‘wo-kok’ is among the better ones I’ve tasted.

.

Besides that, they have a few varieties of steamed paus which are really good. PiggyBeng loves their char-siew-pau and siew mai very much (if you noticed from the 1st photo on this post). For myself, I will normally go for the yong-tau-fu items as they were really good especially the stuffed brinjal or aubergine. Sometimes, I will order their cheong-fun (steamed rice rolls) too but theirs is still far from those I ate in Hong Kong but beggars can’t be choosers right??? 😛
