Dai Cha Dim @ Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur.

Many would be spoilt for choice at Pavilion but our recent trip brought us to Dai Cha Dim, one of the latest additions to the mall. Found on level 6, the Chinese restaurant has a big Hong Kong-influenced Chinese menu with a mix of local delights (like KL Hokkien Mee and Yong Tofu etc) and an array of Dim Sum dishes. There are plenty of seats available and service is generally considered quick. Given that it is housed in an upscale mall, the charges are reasonable. More like a family restaurant suitable for all age groups. 

Beef Brisket Noodle Soup 柱侯牛腩面 (Rm 16.80)

Fried Hokkien Mee 招牌福建面 (Rm 22.80)

Roasted Duck 经典烤鸭 (Rm 23.80/ Standard)

The Beef Brisket Noodle Soup was decent... though a little too greasy to our liking, the broth carried the right seasoning and come with an in-depth meaty flavor. On the meat, we were served a mix of perfectly cooked, tender tendons and beef briskets. A pity that the serving portion was a little small. A local delight, the Fried Hokkien Mee was surprisingly delicious. Though I doubt there are any KL residents are willing to pay Rm 23 for that. It has a fair share of fried Pork Lards and the seasonings were spot on. It has a pleasantly delightful wok-hei as well. Quite a good one I must say. Roasted Duck on the other hand... was disappointingly average. It was good but not to the extend that I found it outstanding.
