Jetpruek “Jong” Lapnarongchai, one of the second-generation restaurateurs of Ah Ma Dim Sum in Hat Yai, brings his family’s Malayinfluenced, Betong-style dim sum recipes to Bangkok. Situated a few steps away from the Saphan Kwai intersection, the two-story Jong Dim Sum benefits from natural light that accentuates white tiles and exposed concrete walls—a combination that attempts to fuse a touch of cool into an oldschool Chinese coffee house. The steamed bun—the house’s signature—comes in three options: pork buns, barbequed grilled pork in charcoal buns, and black sesame sweet buns. These pillowy treats are beloved for their soft and chewy dough. Another must-try, the sui mai, is sprinkled with shallot oil, and is best dipped into sweet chili sauce with chili vinegar. Also worth ordering are the restaurant’s more premium items such as steamed sea bass doused in sweet and sour soy sauce.
