Sweet Bean, Bandar Baru Sri Petaling

That's such a beautiful picture. Empty plates would only mean much satisfied and happy tummy(ies).

It was one of those days where we dragged out of bed late (Cantonese says 'tai-yong-sai-pei-ku' meaning sun shines backside) and took a heavy brunch. Tummies only started growling way after lunchtime. So, I decided to go light as not to spoil dinner but as for Phitoy, it's obvious his hunger took control.

Ever since a trip to Hongkong where I tasted a 'best-ever' black sesame glutinous dumpling in hot ginger soup, I've been ordering d similar thing whenever possible, hoping to quell the craving. So far, the search has been fun but not very successful. Oddly though quite a number of dessert shops here tend to serve them dry or dunked into a choice of sweet thick liquid dessert of red bean, peanut or sesame. In this shop, the dumplings were not sold separately but has to be ordered together with a bowl of thick liquid dessert. But well well well I was surpised and happy to find that the dumplings were served floating in its own bowl of ginger soup next to my choice of peanut soup. And the taste? Good!As mentioned, Phitoy did not go light. He took the Cheese Baked Rice with Chicken Chop. It took quite a while to arrive and when it did, I couldn't wait to pinch a few spoonful as the cheese smelled wonderful. Yumyum. The chicken was tender and flavourful. Another winner! Both of us had a glass of soyabean+black jelly drink (aka Michael Jackson). It was well, ok-lor.There, our bill:- Location: Familiar with Bandar Baru Sri Petaling? It's in the middle of a row of new shophouses facing the road which connects Sri Petaling and Happy Garden, Old Klang Road. Confused? Anyone out there can help?

Hmm.. come to think of it, the name of this shop do sound familiar. Was it previously located at Tengkat Tongshin, behind Jalan Alor in KL town?

Oya! A peek into d calendar made me realised tomorrow is 'Koh-Tong'!! For those who are swallowing 'tong-yuen' (small glutinous rice dumplings) tomorrow, happy aging another year! For those who don't, well, there's no stopping the aging process, so let's do it d delicious way! Gulp.

wmw, I liked it very much as it was fragrant and not too sweet.

looks good, where is this place exactly? I know Sri Petaling and I think I know Happy Garden and I've been to the Citrus park in Old Klang road before, is this place anywhere near that area? Or is this place near to that Sri Petaling famous Dim sum?

Teach teach how to get there, Im craving for some "tong sui" :D

There is also a good sesame dumpling in ginger syrup in Taman Desa pasar malam, probably not as good as Hong Kong's, but most likely better than sweet bean's. Didnt find sweet bean's food particularly good

Tummythoz said...

honey star, do you know how to drive from Sri Petaling to Happy Garden/Old Klang Road, a road under the new controversial overhead Putrajaya highway which made front page news for wrecking the nearby residential homes? It is along this road.

msian food lover in london, noted. So when's the pasar malam? Isit the only dessert stall there?

Visited this SWEET BEAN. request for additional curry gravy cost RM0.50. Well, I was expecting a small bowl, but only full of small source plate. Very disappointed with the "MONEY ORIENTED" biz direction.

Dissatisfied said...

The waitress was extremely disgusting. She blew her nose with some tissue and proceeded to serve us our food without washing her hands!!! EWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!

I have to agree that they are very money minded. I asked to cancel an order very shortly after it was process and they stated that it was not possible because it was already prepared....... and it arrived 15 minutes later. WTF?!
