As I was looking through some photos of my recent trips home to Malaysia I realized I never ended up writing a post on my holiday nor the food so there’s no better time than Thursday for a throwback! I come from Petaling Jaya, Selangor which is near Kuala Lumpur. In these two cities alone there is an incredible number of eateries you will never visit them all in a lifetime. The competition is tough and the turnover is high. As old ones close down, new ones pop up and then there are those that withstand the test of time and many mouths. Every time I go back there are some old favourites and some new restaurants that have passed my family’s taste test. Hope you have a good internet connection for this photo rich post!

Going back to Malaysia doesn’t just mean Malaysian food. It’s a whole smorgasboard of different cuisines and some international franchises we don’t have in Adelaide. Mum took me to Din Tai Fung at The Curve, PJ to try their world famous Xiao Long Bao which is a type of small steamed Shanghainese dumpling filled with pork mince mixture and broth. Although the name directly translates to “small steaming basket bun” it really is more like a dumpling. A good Xiao Long Bao is an art in itself from making the delicate dumpling pastry perfectly to a tasty well balanced filling. True to its name and fame, delicate thin dumpling skin with piping hot delicious pork mince filling. Din Tai Fung is now open in New South Wales.
