Hong Kong Kitchen @ Krystal Point, Bayan Lepas, Penang.

Another option for Muslim diners to fight the struggle of finding a pork-free Dim Sum joint in Penang- the new comer Hong Kong Kitchen offers a pork-free Dim Sum menu. Found at Krystal Point Bayan Baru, the name Hong Kong Kitchen may paint a picture of Hong Kong Cha Chan Teng but in actual fact, it is a Dim Sum restaurant offering many Dim Sum dishes familiar to Malaysians. The choices might not be as extensive compared to some Dim Sum joints, but the variety is more than sufficient- solid selections such as Har Kaw, Siew Mai, Fish Balls are available.  The dining space is welcoming and could accommodate big dining groups... suitable for family eat out or casual meet up over breakfast.

Chee Cheong Fun with Chinese Fried Crullers (Rm 5.90)

Shrimp Chee Cheong Fun (Rm 5.90)

Shrimp Dumplings (Rm 7.90)

Traditional Siew Mai (Rm 5.90)

Fish Balls (Rm 4.90)

Deep Fried Shrimp Rolls (Rm 7.90)

HK Snow Mountain Bao (Rm 6.90)

Chicken Char Siew Bao (Rm 2.50 each)

Unfortunately, not all Dim Sum dishes were served piping hot to us. Both Chee Cheong Fun dishes we had were some of the examples. The Cruller variant fared better than the Shrimp's; the latter one had an unbelievably small amount of Shrimps (probably only 3 out of 9 pieces of Chee Cheong Fun had it). The Siew Mai and Har Kaw were decent... but the Fish Balls need improvements. The texture was somewhat soft and not as bouncy as we would have hoped. Noteworthy dish is their HK Snow Mountain Bao, basically Char Siew Bao with crispy-flaky skin. Ours were served to us warm and the overall flavor combo worked... definitely an interesting change to the traditional Char Siew Bao.
