Eating in Kuala Lumpur 2013 - Grand Harbour Restaurant at Fahrenheit 88

If you are not a KL local, finding a good place for Dim Sum can be a daunting task. There is a dearth of good Dim Sum restaurants in the city centre - unless you go for the hotel restaurants which can be expensive and disappointing most of the time. When I saw this new Hong Kong-style restaurant at Fahrenheit 88, I was quite happy as this is within an easy stroll from the busy Bukit Bintang area.

The restaurant is quite big. Though sparsely decorated - it is modern and clean. The head chef moves around the kitchen and restaurant keeping a close watch on things - always a good sign of a well-run restaurant.

While I would not say that the dim sum here is great, they were nevertheless good enough to satisfy my dim sum cravings. I particularly liked the radish cakes which had been cut into smaller pieces and pan-fried till golden brown -and the taste of white radish was quite sweet and strong.

The highlight was this "Teng Chai Chook" - literally translated as little boat porridge. This had bits of fish, squid, and dried cuttlefish inside - and it was delicious.

I would say that the food and service at Grand Harbour above average for KL standards, and would definitely go back and try other items on the menu.
