Viva Dim Sum 東城點心

Finally another long weekend and although it sounds kiddish, I admit that I am happy because today is only Saturday :D

I saw Cariso's post quite sometime ago and was super delighted to find out that Viva serves custard buns!

特制流沙包 (Steamed Bun With Butter Cream & Salted Egg Yolk) RM4.80 per basket.
The bun was great. I love it :D The custard filling inside was so much that it spills all over the place on your first bite. Buttery taste with hints of salted egg yolk. Perfect.

上海小笼包 (Shanghainese Meat Dumpling (Xiao Long Bao) RM4.80
Another recommended item to be tried. My friend loved it the moment she sets her mouth on it. She actually prefer this siu long bao over Dragon-i's. I can't remember how Dragon-i's taste like but I like Viva's. The last time I had a siu long bao was back in S'pore Din Tai Fung. Viva's siu long bao has more soup compared to theirs. Fresh meat, juicy and more thumbs up for being priced at RM4.80.

Other items we had was siu mai,香脆升笼卷 (Crispy Dragon Roll),古法糯米鸡 (Traditional Steamed Glutinous Rice), har gao, some porridge, yam cake and egg tarts. All those with tea for 4 person total up:  RM50.

Quite pricey but with the food standard its forgive-able. Okay maybe I am bias because they have my favourite custard buns :P

During our meal, we happen to chat with an uncle next to our table and later got to know that he came all the way from Sungai Petani to try out the dim sum. He told us that he got to know it from the net. LOL When we are about to leave, we saw boxes of dim sum (lots of it too) on the table. He likes the egg tart there.

Taste is a very subjective matter. Either you like it or you don't. So just pick your favourite and enjoy ;)

For those who are not familiar with the area, just go towards Tanjung Tokong from Gurney (following the road) without turning anywhere. The outlet is on your right, so you would have to make a u-turn some where further down the road.
