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

When the colleague suggested Grand Imperial for a nice dim sum meal, we went along. We arrived just after 12pm in the practically empty restaurant but slowly and surely, customers started walking in. The colleague a regular here we agreed should do the ordering while the two of us nibbled the boiled peanuts and agreed on the presentable and large dining area which can easily accommodate perhaps 100 over customers at one go.

We sure were in the mood of eating because within  20 minutes,  a good number of dishes came by one after the other and lunch began with the roasted pork followed by the rest.
Roasted pork with mustard mayonnaise sauce - sinfully good the precisely sliced pork pieces with crispy crunchy skin and succulent soft meat.  Seemed not enough for three of us as the pieces were instantly munched for the deliciousness.
Steamed Prawn Dumpling - lightly seasoned fresh prawns bundled with rice rolls and steamingly served. Surely tasted heavenly as the soft textured dumplings and prawns melted in the mouth. 
Steamed Siew Mai With Prawns - well, tasted similar to the steamed prawn dumpling except for the extra filling of minced pork tucked together with fresh prawns inside the rice rolls.  
Shanghai Xiao Long Bao - another variety of steamed dim sum with pork meat wrapped in flavoured rice roll. I couldn't figure out what else was stuffed with the meat but certainly worth ordering for the loveable taste. 
Fried Carrot Cake in XO Sauce - steamed rice flour stir fried with radish, beansprouts, chives and soy sauce. Yum to the flavours but I couldn't feel the XO sauce on my taste-buds.
Deep Fried Yam Dumpling - these fried dumplings stuffed with mushy yam and flavoured with the quintessential Chinese ingredients, my all time favourite. Similar to the usual fried items, the dumpling had a nice crispy crunchy flaky outer layer.  
Deep Fried Lotus Root Pancakes - something new for me. The flat pan fried pancakes filled with julienne lotus roots and chives to deliver the simple flavours yet tasty we agreed. 
Deep Fried Glutinous Rice Dumpling - another nice fried stuff but quite filling as the sticky rice expands in the stomach the moment you have a few bites. 
Steamed Cheong Fun With Prawns - oh-so-loveable. Just the right soft texture with prawns wrapped in the rice rolls and drenched in a light flavorful soy based sauce. 

Hong Kong Style Wanton Noodles With Wanton Soup - yum is the word to the noodles as well as the tasty soup with the soft melt-in-the mouth dumplings. Surely satisfying. 

Between these items, we ranked yam dumplings, Hong Kong noodles and roasted pork as the over-shining outshining dishes. Yummy and truly a joy to our taste buds. While the colleagues wanted to call for the bill, I didn't give up in coaxing them to have desserts. Looking at how persistence I was, they eventually agreed. The "Chilled Avocado Cream With Sago" and "Chilled Lemongrass Jelly with Strawberries", truly a splendid closing for our meal - loveable, delicious and inventive. 

And guess what? We didn't pay a bomb for the bill came up to RM200.00 but charging RM4.00 for the peanuts didn't go down well with us.  Still, it was an fantastic lunch and kudos to the attentive customer service.
