With eight branches across Klang Valley, Jin Xuan has come a long way from its humble beginnings on Jalan Kuchai Lama as Kam Hin Restaurant. As one of the most popular dim sum houses, Jin Xuan has even implemented a queue system (where queue numbers are passed out and then blared over loudspeakers when they’re up) to handle the crowds.
Dished up with impressive efficiency, dim sum dishes here are dependably good – pillowy soft char siu bao (which includes subtly fragrant coriander in the stuffing), sweet and sticky spare ribs, creamy lao sar bao and more. As a wildcard, go for the steamed ma lai koh, where two fluffy, sweet steamed cakes come in bamboo steamers.
All stuffing is prepared at Jin Xuan’s central kitchen at Kuchai Lama, then assembled and steamed at its respective outlets. Given the fair prices and consistent quality of its dim sum, Jin Xuan definitely merits a visit or two (or three).
