last week, I had a pleasant surprise of the opportunity to taste Chinese cuisine from Dragon Court Chinese Restaurant, located in The Media Hotel & Towers.. a restaurant which offers all you can eat dim sum for only Rp69,999.. now, with that you can get your free-flow Chinese tea along with stuffing your tummy with over 40 different kinds of dim sum.. the all you can eat dim sum is available on weekends or public holidays from 08:00 to 14:00..
the restaurant was quite huge with 150 seating capacity decorated in oriental style.. dominated by typical wooden chairs and huge round tables, it's really homey.. somehow, the Chinese restaurant decorations always make me feel warm.. I love round tables since it allows us to look at each of our eating companions.. here and there, you will find Chinese ornaments which is really nice in the eyes..
now, off to the business, shall we? what you're about to see is a series of food photography.. I suggest you to kindly eat before reading this post :)

|what's on our table..|
|stacks of bamboo steamer | shrimp har gow|
|crab har gaw (my favorite!) | vegetable cheong fan|
|onde-onde | almond rolls filled with corn custard|
|onde-onde filled with red bean paste, my favorite dessert!|
fresh fruits | assorted pudding | rainbow cakes | fruit cocktail
so overall, it was a huge lunch as we were offered all of those appetizing cuisine.. and it's not even half of what is served in Dragon Court.. my top three dishes would be winter melon & seafood soup, crab har gow and onde-onde.. the soup was very delicate, clear and straight taste, generously filled with winter melon chunks, chicken and vegetables.. the crab har gow definitely got the pretty look and delicate taste as well.. and how I love those onde-onde.. yum!!
if you want to enjoy an affordable yet tasty dim sum, don't hesitate to visit Dragon Court Chinese Restaurant.. I will definitely come back for more dim sum :)
