I have been looking for a nice dimsum restaurant for a while now. Walked by this nice looking place called New Shanghai in Pavilion Mall and couldn't help but notice the hot steaming tray of food right at the front.
The interior decoration is very nice. It really has that old world, Shanghai feel to it with the red velvet chairs, cobblestone floor, brick walls and all. They got the look and ambiance right. Now, how about the food?
This is called Rice Roll Shanghai Style. It's absolutely fantastic. It's like a typical chee cheong fun but they added a superb twist to it, peanut butter sauce! Very unique, very, very delicious. A must try!
This is Fried Fishball. Nothing special or spectacular. Just normal fishballs but fried perfectly. Very nice without being too fishy.
This is the Stir Fried Radish Cake. Very nicely fried in a dry style with lotsa crispy beansprouts. Nicely done and delicious.
Glutinous Rice. Nice juicy piece of chicken and mushroom on top and the sticky rice is just perfect, not too hard and not too soggy. The sauce it's cooked in, is fantastic. Very, very delicious.
This is my 2nd favourite, after the Rice Roll. It's called Beancurd Roll with Thai Sauce. It's beancurd skin with some meat stuffing in a very nice sweet and sour sauce. Very, very delicious.
I also ordered a cup of Jasmine Tea. Pretty expensive at rm6 for a cup of Chinese tea but it was very nice. I also noticed they sell some very exotic and very, very expensive tea. Anybody wanna try this White Cockscomb Tea? Rm118 per 100gm. WOW!!!!!
Overall experience was good. Price is reasonable at about rm8 per basket of dimsum. My total bill came to rm52.80 for 3 adults. I will definitely be back for more. I forgot to check if it's halal. Here's the phone number if you wanna check if it's halal. 03-21422833.
2 thumbs up from the fisherman!
