由多元种族与文化交织而成的马来西亚美食地图总能让世人屡屡探索而惊艳,佳肴美食口味繁多却总能各守其职且相互尊重彼此的饮食禁忌。许多中式食谱经过大厨精心创意改良,早已演变为各族皆能共享的全民美食,不含猪肉的清真点心既是其一。

继大人早前所推荐的喝粥吃菜话家常、暖心潮州粥幸福上桌获得极大回响之后,本季 Ponderosa Golf & Country Club 金阁楼再有新作,非常感激 Yvonne 屡次盛情款待,大人真是口福不浅啊!

Dim sum has always been a quintessential part of our Chinese culture, evident from the popularity and growing number of restaurants now serving Halal (pork-free) versions of the famous staples and coming up with their own innovative rendition.

Fresh from the success of their Teochew Porridge set lunch which has warmed many hearts (and bellies) since July, Ponderosa Golf & Country Club is bringing even more comfort food to the table, now Muslims and non-Muslims alike can enjoy these Chinese delicacies with family and friends! How incredibly blessed we are to reside in this multi-racial country, don’t you agree?

PS: We always felt equally appreciated whenever Yvonne’s in town. Thanks for the invite once more LOL!

此次金阁楼所推出清真点心价格可谓非常实惠,每笼只需RM3.90,这对大人来说可是天大的好消息呢!因为大人数位在首都打拼的友族朋友们曾向大人打听,是否能推荐新山较富特色的清真美食,这下子大人总算得以交差啦~ 以鸡肉为主材料的点心确实非常适合与友族同胞或不食猪肉的朋友或商业伙伴共享啊!

If you love dim sum (and very few of us don’t), you can now get it at Ponderosa Golf and Country Club, within the vicinity of Johor Bahru city centre. Affordably priced at only RM3.90 per plate, the Halal (predominantly chicken) version served at Restoran Hop Sing is definitely music to our ears, as it means more working dim sum lunch for us and our dim sum loving Muslim colleagues and associates.

水晶花饺、芝士烧卖、虾烧卖和火腿腐皮卷,卖相不俗啊!饥肠辘辘的大人特别喜爱芝士烧卖,浓郁的芝士香非常提味!除了常见的烧卖类,看官们是不是鲜少看见以整片火腿为裹皮的点心?原来西式的外表下里藏着中式的滋味呢!

Pork-free dim sum may sound limited in terms of what you can choose to eat, but the Halal menu was packed with a surprising variety of options. Our starters comprising Crystal Flower Dumplings, Chicken Siew Mai with Cheese (what?), Chicken Siew Mai with Prawn and Chicken Ham Beancurd Roll (seriously?) made a very decent impression and tasted surprisingly good, with the addition of cheese and ham sufficiently making up for the absence of our traditional non-Halal ingredient.

港式叉烧包(鸡肉)、港式菜包与流沙包也是点心世界里不可或缺的角色啊!滋味虽不若以猪肉为馅的传统叉烧包,金阁楼的鸡肉叉烧包却甚有本地咖喱角内馅的风味,甜辣交融倍感熟悉。

Taking a leaf from the Hong Kong-style BBQ Chicken Pau, Vegetables Pau and Salted Egg Pau, the taste were not in any way inferior to the non-Halal version. The “curry” BBQ Chicken version however, with a hint of fusion combining the local curry puff ingredients, getting all our thumbs up! It was simply spicy, savoury and sweet, all in one mouthful.

这道非常入味的豉汁凤爪甚得大人欢心,来人啊~ 再来一笼!而将肉汁深锁在脆皮里的鸡肉上海锅贴,内馅超级饱满~ 大人的友族朋友们一定会喜欢 (目光坚定)!

The mouth-watering Steamed Chicken Feet with black sauce were so juicy and tender that we couldn’t resist another serving, while the pot stickers (Chicken Shanghai Gyoza) are also proving irresistible with their generous amount of ingredients, that were only held well in place by their rather firm skins.

香脆榴莲甜不辣!大人出发前嘴里还嚷嚷着想吃榴莲,没想到金阁楼竟有读心术!以果王为馅的清真点心,果真是最能体现马来西亚美食文化熔炉的缩影。不得不说,酥炸型的清真点心更显出色,咬下之际立见真章,酥脆得让人点头称是啊!

It must be either pure psychic at play or just plain coincidence, but Ponderosa certainly understand (by now) the king of all ingredients that can make nearly everyone go gaga! YES! The King of Fruits is here to stay, and can be enjoyed at will in the form of Durian Tempuras and Durian Rolls.

生筋蟹钳、香脆榴莲卷、凤尾芋头虾等酥炸点心中,最令大人惊艳的仍是以果王为主的香脆榴莲卷,爽脆度十足的扎实金丝卷裹着适量果肉,外皮不油内馅不腻,滋味恰恰好!若看官们无果王不欢,这可是道值得一点再点的点心。

Go for the Fried Crab Claw, Yam Roll with Prawn AND crispy Durian Roll for the biggest bang for your dietary buck. Needless to say, the seafood here are always a good bet for their freshness and taste, but the lusciously runny durian filling had since stayed in our minds even long after we had sufficient replenishment. Need we say more?

好料在后头!大人原以为芝麻球里裹着的是一般的豆沙啊、花生啊 … 咬开后万万没想到竟然是咸蛋黄!有惊喜!赞!芝麻与咸蛋黄原来如此搭调,无需华丽的形容词,外脆内软就是好吃!此外,金阁楼的荷叶饭与糯米鸡也非常引人举筷啊!只见大人们的筷子此起彼落,不消两下子,吓着了孤单的荷叶与空碟啊~

And there is still room for one final surprise, with the plain Sesame Bun proving more than meets the eyes. While all of us have come to expect the usual red bean or peanut fillings, we found ourselves speechless with our mouth full of… Salted Egg Yolk (OMG)! Not to be outdone, the Lotus Leaf Rice and Lo Mai Kai (Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken) almost disappeared the moment they were served, and for good reasons too. The huge piece of chicken on the Lo Mai Kai was so tender and succulent that we nearly mistook it for a fresh oyster (no joke)!

Kudos to the chefs at Restaurant Hop Sing, who have worked tirelessly in sourcing the best substitutes without compromising the flavour and authenticity of traditional Chinese dim sum, leaving us pretty impressed with the quality of these pork-free variations.
