美食能使大人推磨,尤其是那方寸间的细致面皮活儿,尽显心灵手巧,「大人啊~ 你言下所指的是什么美食啊?」噢,正是中式点心啊!

能屡被身旁识食老饕纳入尝鲜名单中,大人心想万丽的中餐料理应当无需赘言,原来这儿的中式点心宴也颇受青睐,每周七天的午餐时段 (公假除外) 还能以RM58的超值价格无限享用点心师傅特制的精致小点,还有什么比这更惬意呢?立即约了府里知音慢享午后,咱们今日就在新山百万镇的五星级酒店 Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel 里的万丽中餐馆说好了不见不散,让食物喂养友情吧!

Happiness has many interpretations and comes in all aspects. To some, it may mean a hearty breakfast at Cafe BLD, a sinful spread of delicate pastries at Chocolate Cake Company, or sipping a classic cocktail after a long day of work at RBar. But to us, happiness is having a leisure dim sum lunch buffet in a refined but relaxed atmosphere.

Looking to heighten its lunch game by offering exquisite items as part of its daily lunch menu (except public holidays) at RM58++ per person, Wan Li Chinese Restaurant’s dim sum buffet at Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel is considered above mid-range pricing but worth every dollar for this standard. Allow us to do all the “hard work” for all you big-eaters, dim sum devotees and buffet lovers out there, so here goes…

蒸笼点心 Steamed Dim Sum

竹笼里的蒸汽争相四涌,被掀了盖子后的蹄香鲜虾饺、香茜带子饺、上海小笼包蟹皇蒸烧卖模样娇俏可人,咱们上馆子最常点选的蒸笼点心在万丽中餐厅皆乃自家现做,难怪道道皮馅精致不离分,「蹄香鲜虾饺扎实入味;可尝到一整颗带子的香茜带子饺,半透若晶,皮弹馅鲜;带有些许姜汁美味的上海小笼包,汤鲜汁甜;皮薄馅足的蟹皇蒸烧卖,颗颗饱满爽口,这四笼蒸点可是餐单上的热门推荐,大人着实没理由不点啊!」让人更欢心的绝对是意犹未尽后还能续笼啊!

Part of the fun about having dim sum is that we get to order a lot of dishes, and we are all for the variety! Doing justice to dim sum classics like Superior “Har Kao” with Water Chestnuts, Steamed Prawn & Scallop Dumplings, Shanghai “Xiao Long Bao” and not forgetting their Superior “Siew Mai”, what more can we really say? The Har Kao comes with chewy skin and ample prawn stuffing, while the Xiao Long Bao released the tasty stock into the spoon when broken with a pair of chopsticks that was satisfying to swallow when paired with ginger and vinegar. There were also loads of prawns and very fragrant meat in the dumplings and Siew Mai, and the ratio of meat to skin was just right. While there were a couple of hits and misses in the thickness of the dumpling and crystal skins, we have no qualms about ordering extra servings if tummy space permits.

在35道【点心任点任吃】餐单里,特色包点怎能缺席呢?知音们最爱包子们那饱暖人心的滋味,大人岂敢怠慢,立即点了蚝皇鸡烧包、香蒸鸡肉包、川式红油抄手、香蒸芋泥包伺候,「软香不粘牙的蓬松皮衣、湿润的鸡肉内馅,大人形容的就是开口笑鸡烧包 😄 。」当然香蒸鸡肉包、香蒸芋泥包也各有拥趸,「较为刺激味蕾雷达的点心当属色泽艳丽的川式红油抄手了,微微麻辣下肚后好暖胃!」

With over 35 dim sum dishes to choose from, we can’t say we’ve had dim sum without ordering the classic mainstays such as Steamed Barbecued Chicken Buns, Steamed Savoury Chicken Meat Buns, Szechuan Style Spicy Dumplings in Chilli Oil and Steamed Sweet Taro Buns. The Pau skins, in general, were soft and fluffy, while firmly encasing the sweet barbecued chicken and savoury chicken filling within, and the same could be said for the taro buns. Soaked in vinegar and spicy chilli oil which looks tame, the fiery hotness that comes when we dunk the wanton skin was enough to make our ears tingle, which was probably the reason why they were so delectable, and we couldn’t stop at one LOL.

酥炸点心 Fried & Baked Dim Sum

传统的点心手艺除了显现于小笼与包点外,师傅们处理酥炸点心的功夫也不容小觑,往往油香而不腻的炸物因搭馅合宜,滋味并不次于小笼们。这几道被万丽中餐馆热推的蜜汁鸡烧酥、沙律鲜虾饺、香煎糯米鸡香脆韭菜饼,实在让人难以抗拒,「面对酥炸点心时,请各位先收起罪恶感吧!只会越嚼越香啊~」

Apart from the traditional dim sum orders, the chefs at Wan Li are equally at home with the fried and baked versions which include the Baked Barbecued Chicken Puffs, Deep-Fried Prawn Dumplings with Mayonnaise, Pan-Fried Glutinous Rice and Crispy Chinese Chives Pan Cake with Prawns. For us, this was the perfect excuse for having some fried dim sum and especially mayonnaise without feeling guilty, so let’s give ourselves a break just for today, ok?

酥炸芋泥卷根本一秒就能动摇任何嗜甜点心控的心房,大人贴心提醒饕客们品尝这小点可得当心啊,「别看皮衣酥坚不可摧,一口咬下后紫芋香浆瞬间溃堤!」解决方法必然是赶紧送入口中化解眼前洪流!

Our first bite of the Crispy Fried Sweet Taro Rolls took us completely by surprise. The pastry skin was flaky, and it was filled with the warm and extra silky purple yam filling, making it unexpectedly delicious. Seriously, what is there not to like?

大快朵颐了一番后,方才记起得饮一啖普洱解解腻,没想到大人竟然还无法尝完餐单上的大部分点心啊!蜂巢炸芋角、脆皮酥蛋挞、莲香芝麻枣上海煎锅贴,便是另一色随后添选的小点。「蜂巢炸芋角里头潜藏了叉烧,肉香扑鼻;莲香芝麻枣甜味宜人,贵为主角之一的芝麻毫不抢味,好吃!」而制法繁复的脆皮酥蛋挞,挞皮厚实、内馅浓香与煎至微焦的上海煎锅贴,交替品享好养肚!

We ordered a pot of Pu Er Tea to cleanse our palates in between the dishes, only to realise that we were not even half way through their selections on offer. The other dim sum that we add on includes Deep-Fried Taro Croquettes, Baked Egg Tarts, Deep-Fried Sesame Balls with Lotus Paste and Pan-Fried “Shanghai” Dumplings. We really enjoyed the egg tarts that were baked fresh from the oven, with its egg custard pretty soft, eggy and yummy while the abundance of taro in the croquettes and lotus paste with sprinkles of sesame on top also won our thumbs up in unison! As for the dumplings that were pan-fried to near perfection, we kinda ran out of descriptives but you just gotta taste it.

额外推荐 – 招牌甜品芒果西米露+流沙包 Sweet Finish

这乃是大人额外点选的招牌甜品芒果西米露+流沙包!双剑合璧出场,气势不凡,无法出让分享的一道甜食啊!「以真材实料香芒所慢搅研磨而成的芒果西米露,柚子的微酸与芒果的鲜甜,口感实在好惊艳滑润!一勺西米露、一啖流沙包,啊~不一会儿就吃得碗底光亮,大人照镜啦!」

虽说为无限享用,大人还是倾向保留那一份意犹未尽,这回没尝着的就留待下回吧!

【大人小分享】万丽中餐馆《点心任点任吃》附带条件:只限堂食,为免浪费食物,吃不完之食物以菜单价格计算,五岁以下儿童免费。恕无法与其他折扣共同使用,不包括茶水及小吃。价格已含消费税。

For completeness sake, Wan Li also have a Porridge, Rice & Noodles section but we prefer to skip the carbs and save the stomach for their signature sweet finishing (not included in the buffet) and ended the meal with “two desserts in one”. The Mango Pomelo was very well appreciated, in particular on a hot and humid day, and partly because of how the two fruits are freshly blended perfectly together to make a soup, with other ingredients like cream milk, bits of ice, and sago balance out their sweetness and sourness, making the mango puree and pomelo pulp a match made in heaven! On the other hand, the orange Liu Sha Bun was unlike the ones we usually get. The lava was neither brackish nor diluted, with the thick molten core providing a more substantial tang without being overly toothsome. The mess we left behind was a proof of the powerful spurts this unassuming champ was capable of, but still, it is hard to not fall in love with this perfect pairing!

Despite our ambitious attempt to feast on everything that’s available, the substantial selection was proving to be a small mountain to overcome since half of us were on vegetarian, and we barely covered even half the menu. Overall, we thought Wan Li has managed to strike a satisfactory balance between the pricing of their buffet and the quality of their Dim Sum, and a nice place to have a quiet lunch near the town area.
