They wouldn’t let me in so I’m off to a popular Dim Sum restaurant in Puchong for lunch.

Dim Sum in Puchong

Tire size bamboo containers stand head high as their contents steam over boiling water. Wait-staff come around to each table lifting the lid of the bamboo steamers revealing delectable bite size dumplings. You point to what you want and are charged by the plate. This is my second time here.
