By the time the audition was over at about 2.00pm, I was hungrily angry. D'Fong on the ground facing the main road I quickly walked in with the partner. Practically empty with the last group of customer finishing off their lunch meal, D'Fong from my lens - clean, neat and those beautiful big-bold colourful posters and red lanterns for the authentic Chinese ambiance.
The menu sort of a thinner version of an encyclopaedia I flipped the pages and quickly ordered . Otherwise I would have literally rolled on the carpeted floor and cried. By the way, while ordering and as the staff noticed I was taking pictures, she hinted, the menu potentially will be revamped to include new dishes.
The other crispy fried dim sum item was the cheese prawn rolls. Crispy skin packed with oozy cheese, minced prawns and paired with the same type of creamy sauce as for the yam puffs. Taste-wise - a heaven calling dish we again agreed worth the call.
The smokey minced pork rolls - minced fresh meat, tightly rolled with pastry, drenched in a soy based sauce and over a little bed of lettuce leaves. The components or shall I say ingredients worked well together for the over-the average taste.
The last item, the minimalistic steamed prawn dumplings. This stuff I expected from a restaurant that labels itself for authentic dim sum dishes. Having had such dumpling countless times, I still won't mind raving.
Then came the complimentary lychee jelly. What a nice gesture I thought as a bait so that customers will happily return again. The clear jelly, delicate and with the right balance of sweetness to further tantalise our taste buds. Of course a nice ending to the dim-sum meal.
A satisfying meal just enough for two people (around RM37.00), I shall not hesitate to return to D'Fong and definitely at least 10 minutes or so to read up the menu before knowing for sure which dishes to order instead or rushing like this unexpected dining experience.
