Malaysian Food Blog, Travel, Diving & More

I never thought I’d post an entry featuring something from this big hawker center near my residence. In fact, I’ve probably went there only a handful of times in the past 3 years since I could never find anything that was good enough to satisfy the stomach.

I got to know this dumpling stall by chance, we were resting at Ming Tien for a giant glass of rejuvenating fruit juice after a game of futsal and the ever hungry Kelvin ordered a plate of fried dumpling as a side dish to his customary large meal after sports.

Fried Dumpling (鍋貼, 水餃) at Ming Tien, PJ Taman Megah
fried dumpling.. yummmm

The fried dumpling was simple enough, 10 tiny pieces in a plastic plate, with a dipping sauce that tasted like a mixture of red pepper and vinegar (or maybe some soya sauce too). The fried dumpling actually tasted very close to xiao long pao, with fatty pork inside and soup inside the dough skin. It was very, very deliciousm so good that I actually went there again a few days later. It would have been perfect if they actually provide some ginger strips.

you’ll love the vinegar + pepper dipping

The steamed dumpling though, while pretty good, was over shadowed by the fried dumpling. At RM 6 and RM 5 for 10 fried and steamed dumplings respectively, this is a great buy. The small bite size almost made it a lot easier to eat compared to the Japanese style gyoza.

  12. […] The uptown food court is one of those places where you can find things to eat around the clock but not being a mamak stalls area like SS2 nor a centralized food court like ming tien. I was dragged there after a weekday badminton session that ended up past 11pm and was told that I should sample the old school yong tau foo. […]

  13. […] serve old school oily rice that goes very well with the meat. No wonder there are comments on my ming tien dumpling post recommending me to this […]
