WK Restaurant is the place to indulge and savour some mouth watering dim sum.
Breakfast with dim sum is one of the favourite passtimes for the Chinese. WK Restaurant breakfast starts as early as 7:30 am. Its menu offers some 35 different types of dim sum. Abalone dumpling, deep fried yam dumpling, fish balls, spicy chicken claw, steamed beef stomach, and steamed pork ribs are just some of the dim sum served here. These dim sum prices range from RM 4 to RM 7. WK restaurant is air-conditioned, which helps greatly when eating steamy food in tropical regions. Not only many KK Lites come here for breakfast and lunch, but also this place is popular with tour groups.
In WK Restaurant the dim sum are wheeled to the guests on a steamed cart. The steamed cart is filled with assorted dim sum, guests only need to choose the ones they want. Of course there are siew mai and har gau, without them a dim sum meal just isn’t complete, isn’t it? The siew mai and har gau are in generous portions. They come in four pieces in each set (bamboo loung).
The bamboo skin roll is one speciality of dim sum at WK Restaurant. Minced meat and prawn are rapped with bamboo skin, and it is steamed with herb sauce. Apart from the common lotus paste bun and BBQ char siew bun, one must try the WK steamed salted bun, which has steamy liquid orange caster fillings. A bit of careful handling is needed as the orange liquid caster inside the steamed salted bun can splash on one’s shirt easily.
For a more filling food, one can try out the fried radish cake with bean sprout, or choose from the two sets of rice flour roll: char siew or fresh prawns. The glutinous rice with black mushroom is also quite filling. Most dim sum are made from stuffing with meat, beef, fish and prawns.
