Ying and I headed over to the Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel on a bright and sunny Sunday afternoon for the preview of the “All You Can Eat Dim Sum” special promotion at Celestial Court, which is the hotel’s Chinese restaurant. The promo features more than 70 dishes, and you can choose from various dim sum by Chef Ken Liew, served steamed, pan-fried, deep-fried, stir-fried or baked.

You can choose to order as many dishes as you want from the dim sum selection (but please don’t over order and let the food go to waste) and to supplement the dim sum is also a mini buffet corner with Roast Duck, Fresh Oysters and Chinese Barbeque Chicken.

 

 We got to try some of the recommended dim sum dishes and there some unusual but nevertheless delicious twists to some of the usual favourites.

Dim sum Chef Ken Liew has been intrigued with food ever since he got his first job at the age of 18 at Merlin Hotel in Malacca, a long way from his home town in Ipoh, Perak. While he is cheerful and chatty amongst his friends, he makes no compromise whenever it comes to his cooking and insists on having the freshness of ingredients, especially seafood. “I love to cook with seafood because it is an incredible challenge! It takes skills to work with seafood. The balance is all about preparing it without under or over cooking it. Tricky, but I like it,” says Chef Ken, who has two decades worth of experience with the steamer.

Chef Ken can be described as a person with the mind of a child – always inquisitive, forever asking and eager to find new things to learn and discover, and this translates to some improvised but delicious dim sum dishes that breaks the mould. All thanks to the inspiration he found from his siblings who are also chefs. 

The two special ingredients or herbs that he cannot live without is a kitchen well-stocked with fresh spring onion and parsley. Chef Ken’s Shrimp Roll with Banana Seaweed dish accompanied with a special Wasabi-Mayo dip a must try at Celestial Court.
