Enjoying Dim Sum @ Restoran Zui Le Xuan, First Garden, Ipoh

Our eldest son is back in Ipoh for the weekend and this morning his dad asked whether he wanted any breakfast or not. Usually, my sons would skip breakfast because they wanted to sleep late, and would only take brunch or lunch. This morning was an exception because he was up early and will be meeting some friends after breakfast.

At first, dad suggested First Garden's famous fish noodle but son said he wanted dim sum because long time didn't go for dim sum breakfast. So dim sum it was for pa, ma and son and off we went to First Garden's Restoran Zui Le Xuan Dim Sum for our dim sum breakfast.

We were early and only a few tables were occupied. We took a table at the corridor, more airy because it was not air-conditioned. Service was fast and good because there was no crowd.
First item on the table was steamed "siew mai" - meat & prawn paste, etc.

Next is steamed "har kow" - prawn dumplings

This is steamed "yu wat" - smooth, soft, bouncy fish paste with green peas.

"Woo Kok" - yam paste skin with diced meat, peas etc. as filling.

Do not know what this is called, but we know this is very good and tasty. Tasted like fish paste, prawns, etc.

Fish paste stuffed long purple brinjal (eggplant).

Fresh julienne ginger in black vinegar to eat with steamed little buns (siew loong pau). The spoons are to hold the buns and when you take a bite into the bun, soup will run out of the bun and collected in the spoon.

A set of 4 steamed little buns. Filling of bun is minced meat, etc. and soup. The "siew loong pau" cannot compete with those in KL or Singapore.

A plate of 3 minced meat and prawn bean curd rolls. To be eaten with mayonnaise or chili sauce.

A mini saucer with 3 tiny free samples of chicken biscuits (kai chai paen)

Restoran Zui Le Xuan is located in one of the shops just beside GP Foodcourt in First Garden, Ipoh.

Follow My decrees and be careful to obey my laws,
and you will live safely in the land.
Then the land will yield its fruit,
and you will eat your fill and live there in safety.
(Leviticus 25:18-19, New International Version-NIV)


  1. What a lot of cute little bites! We have Dim Sum places here, but I have never tried it. Now I want to.

    1. Ginny, you must try, at least you will know how it tastes like and whether you like it or not.

  2. Awesome breakfast. So much varieties. Love them all. Yummy!!!!....������

    1. Irene, for dim sum better to go in a group, can order and get to taste more variety.

  3. Nancy, my favorite is the "woo kok"! I don't really fancy "siew loong pau" as I dislike the soup and it's messy to eat.

    1. Phong Hong, you also love woo kok? I am crazy over anything made from yam.

  4. Siew Mai & Kar How is always my favourite, hehe...

    1. Sharon, siew mai & har kao are the most popular items and are found on almost every table.

  5. I like to eat dim sum but can't afford to eat them very often. The chicken biscuits look so cute, so mini. Are they tasty?

    1. Mun, my hubby always complains that dim sum very expensive, we too also cannot afford, only eat once in a while thing. The mini chicken biscuit is tasty, like the Bidor type. Actually I prefer the thin, crispy type of chicken biscuits.
