Grand Imperial Restaurant - USJ 19 Digital Mall ( Subang Jaya)


When our colleague suggested Grand Imperial for a nice dim sum meal, two of us went along. We arrived just after 12pm in this practically empty restaurant but slowly and surely, others customers started walking in. Colleague who is a regular in Grand Imperial Restaurant  took charge or ordering, why would we debate? No need, let the pro order, we shall sit back and enjoy our meal. Lunch started off by nibbling over boiled peanuts, thereafter let the feast begin.

Happening, can you imagine starting off with Roasted Pork? Heaven came calling. Crispy pop skin and just so tender meat, made me especially happy (Restoran Dragon Star Kampung Tunku & Restoran Oversea Subang Parade). Nothing more to say,  perhaps I should mention mustard mayonnaise sauce for dipping roasted pork before daintily chewing.
Steamed Prawn Dumpling. Lightly seasoned fresh prawns bundled with rice rolls and steam served. Soft. Indeed, you shouldn't debate on its freshness.
Steamed Siew Mai Prawns. Not much of a difference to steamed prawn dumpling, except for the addition of minced pork, tucked inside the outer rice dough.   
Shanghai Xiao Long Bao. The other way to steamed dim sum, this one was pork meat wrapped in somewhat a different type of rice dough. As you can see. I don't have anything else to say, except that bao was appreciated.  
Fried Carrot Cake in XO Sauce. Steamed rice flour stir fried alongside radish, beansprouts, chives garlic and soy sauce. Yum to its tastes, however I couldn't feel XO sauce on my taste-buds.
Deep Fried Yam Dumplings. Fried crumbly dumpling, mushy yam tucked inside. My all time favourite.   
Deep Fried Lotus Root Pancakes. Something new for me, assumingly, flat pan fried pancakes filled with julienne lotus roots and chives for delivering the simple tastes, yet one which we raved about.  
Fried Glutinous Rice Dumpling. Back to munching on a fried dim sum item, dumpling is definitely filling. Stick rice remember? 
Steamed Prawn Chee Cheong Fun. Oh, amazing. Just the right soft texture of flat rice sheets, filled with prawns, seated over a light flavorful soy based sauce.  
Hong Kong Style Wanton Noodles, accompanied with Wanton Soup. Yum. Yes, I think you heard me. Not the street wanton mee, this one is class above the rest. Utterly satisfying.  

Between these various types of  dishes, Yam Dumplings, Hong Kong Wantan Noodle and Roasted Pork I think stood tall, though the rest of the other dishes can't be faulted. Just that, I still have to vote for my favourites. While my colleagues were on the verge of settling the bill, I coaxed them to a sugar pleasure."Chilled Avocado Cream With Sago" and "Chilled Lemongrass Jelly with Strawberries". Oh-my,  a different level of inventive sweet treat in Grand Imperial Restaurant.  

And guess what? We didn't pay a bomb. RM200.00 but M4.00 for peanuts didn't go down well with us.  Still, it was an fantastic lunch and kudos to attentive customer service.
