Promo: King Chef Dimsum

Most decent dimsums nowadays will cost at an average of 80php per order— expensive for someone like me who love to eat different varieties in one sitting.  Fortunately, King Chef is here to save our wallet!  All their dimsums are only at 48php during these times:

 

Mon – Tues    2pm – 5pm; 9pm – 12mn

Wed – Sat     7am – 9am; 2pm – 5pm; 9pm – 12mn

Sun                7am – 9am; 2pm – 5pm; 9pm – 11mn

Some of the basic dimsums (basic meaning dimsums that were already in the pushcart) that we ordered were: Pork Siomai, Taosi Spareribs, Chicken Feet, and Beancurd Roll.

Beancurd Roll

Our favorite from the above would be the Beancurd Roll. The Siomai and the Taosi Spareribs were not bad. I personally like the Chicken Feet; but, my sister thought they were skinny.

 

Some dishes that were not in the pushcart are cooked or steamed only once ordered.  So, we waited for a while for the dimsums below. Lesson learned: order the specials first to get ’em cooking then browse through the pushcart.

Spinach Dumpling

Spinach Dumpling

We expected the Spinach Dumpling would be something similar to Kuchay Dumpling– veggies inside with few bits of shrimps. Guess not. This dumplings’ wrapper itself was the spinach, and the inside was full of shrimps. A surprising delight!

Hakaw

Hakaw

I’m always wary of Hakaws expecially during promos, because I usually get disappointed. King Chef’s Hakaw is definitely not one of them. They were packed with shrimps! More than the Spinach Dumplings’. For their original price of 90php, still worth it!

*note: Hakaws are not included in the promo during Tuesdays.

Xiao Long Bao

Xiao Long Bao

Xiao Long Pao: another dimsum that I’m also wary of. An authentic Xiao Long Pao has soup inside the wrapper, of which King Chef do serve. This is my second favorite dimsum of King Chef. Be sure to watch out for the soup! They are very hot since they are freshly served from the kitchen. They serve 3 pieces of Xiao Long Pao per order.

*note: Xiao Long Pao are not always available. Maybe it’s because they are that delicious, everyone would order them!

Fried Prawn Dumpling

Fried Prawn Dumpling

Since I have mentioned my second favorite, might as well share my top favorite dimsum of King Chef: Fried Prawn Dumpling. Ma introduced us to this. She raved so much about this to the point of me expecting highly from it. She was right. It was delicious! It wasn’t very oily from what you would expect from most fried dishes. The dumpling is also filled with prawns. The sweet sauce that comes with it, compliments it a lot. Can’t get enough of crustaceans!

Ham Soy Kok

Ham Soy Kok

My sister ordered  this. I didn’t really know what to expect with Ham Soy Kok because I haven’t tried one before. That or I didn’t know it’s called Ham Soy Kok. It was surprisingly tasty. The shell or breading tasted a bit sweet similar to a buchi’s; and filed with minced meat. Definitely a good trial.

 

We have also ordered HK Style Asado Siopao, but they vanished after a few second of the tray landing on the table. The bun was very soft and fluffy! The asado was also very juicy and tender!

 

So far, we have little to none criticisms to all the dimsums. The special orders are definitely are top faves though. We are thinking of going back to King Chef to try everything else on the dimsum menu. I would like to try their Machang and Steamed Seafood Dumpling.
