Wan Chun Ting, Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara

Wan Chun Ting, which translates as "Ten Thousand Springs Pavilion" is the Chinese fine dining restaurant in Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara.  Step into an era of grandeur, with its high ceilings, plush furnishings and elegant setting, and enjoy authentic Cantonese and Imperial cuisine, with specialties from Northern China such as Peking duck and Beggar's Chicken.

The restaurant offers a dim sum and a la carte menu for lunch, and for dinner, the menu is slightly more extensive. Though the dim sum here is pork-free, we certainly did not miss the pork and thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here, thanks to the attentive service and great food.



Siew mai is a must-order everytime we have dim sum with BabySumoKids. The steamed traditional chicken siew mai (RM12) was nice and juicy, topped with crunchy tobiko.. the kids enjoyed it so much that we had this two days in a row.



From the Chef's Recommendation Selection, we tried the Steamed golden black prawn dumpling aka har gau (RM18). The har gau's jet black skin gets it colour from squid ink, with fresh, plump prawns encased within.



My favorite dim sum item from the menu was the Prawn bean curd wrapped in rice roll (RM18), a unique creation of deep fried beancurd roll with prawns, further wrapped in steamed rice rolls aka cheong fun and then garnished with chicken floss and tobiko. Not only does it look super pretty, it tasted amazing too with lovely contrasting textures. For those who prefer a more traditional version, they do offer steamed rice rolls with shrimp or barbecued chicken.




From the deep fried selection, we tried was the Pan fried bean curd roll with mozzarella cheese (RM18). Hot and crispy with juicy prawns and melting cheese, what's not to love?



For dessert, we had the Chef's Recommended Steamed salted egg custard bun (RM15) as well as Baked Egg Tart (RM12). Love the buttery, flaky egg tarts... very enjoyable!





During the same afternoon, we also tried an appetizer from the a la carte menu - the Stir fried squid with salted egg yolk (RM55). This was so so so so delicious, deep fried to crispy perfection with a hint of spiciness from the chillies. So addictive and irresistible, we couldn't stop eating. Highly recommended!





The following day, we returned to sample items off their a la carte menu. First to arrive was the signature Steamed fresh scallop and glass noodles with black bean (RM88). Our scallop-loving family approves of this dish; it came with 5 juicy scallops which was topped on glass noodles and placed in hollowed out hairy gourds. This is available during dinner only.




We also had the Stir fried Hong Kong Kailan, Duo Style (RM35). A popular vegetable dish in Chinese restaurants, this features deep fried crispy kailan shreds as well as crunchy stir fried kai lan and some chicken floss on the side. Simple and good!




We also shared the Braised Hong Kong Yee Mee with shredded mushroom and crab meat (RM48 for small), which is topped with a deep fried soft shell crab.



Had egg tarts again cos the kids loved them!



For dessert, we had the Chilled Mango Puree served with pomelo (RM22), a standard order for us at Chinese restaurants, which was lovely. Not to be missed also is the Cream of avocado topped with vanilla ice cream and banana fritters (RM15). Rich, smooth and creamy, with the right balance of sweetness, this was undoubtedly the best avocado dessert I've had... even the kids loved this (and they don't even like avocado).





We really love the ambiance at Wan Chun Ting, and the dishes we tried here during our visits were delicious and well-executed. Can't wait to return here again!

Softsrve, Damansara Uptown

After a satisfying dinner at Super Big Don House, we dropped by Softsrve for dessert. As we were quite full, we shared their signature Cereal Vanilla Milk ice cream (RM9.90). Though the portion is pretty small, tastewise it was delicious - light and creamy with a distinctive cereal taste, which is what makes this unique. It melts pretty quickly, so dig in and don't spend too much time photographing it. :P
