Bunn Choon has been around for ages and is known to dish out some of the tastiest egg tarts and dim sums in this side of town. I, of course did not know of it till one of you mentioned it. Thank you 🙏
The restaurant is located in one of my favorite parts of Petaling Street, along Lorong Panggung. It is colorful, filled with all sorts of characters and consist of an array of cuisines to choose from. So many options, so many choices.
The restaurant is easy to identify. The exterior is bright yellow in color, with blue outlines. It occupies two floors. The ground floor deals with freshly baked pastries while the top floor deals with the rest – dim sum, noodles, rice bowls, dessert, drinks. Tables and chairs for customers to sit and dine at is on the top floor, with limited seat. 9 – 10 tables with a ‘first come, first serve’ policy.
Parking: There are 2 open carparks very close by at an hourly rate of RM 5, maximum per day RM 10. This was where I parked at. There is roadside parking too but it is almost always impossible to find a spot that is not occupied.
Dim Sum: Siu Mai, RM 6.50, Bakut Teh Siu Mai, RM 6.50, Sichuan Dumpling, RM 6.30
Sedap oooooooo 😍😍. It has been a while since I’ve last had really good dim sums and so indulging in the ones here was da’ bomb.
Just in case you do not have the time to dine in, you could always buy the frozen version to bring back home and eat at your own convenience.
The Siu Mai was tasty and a joy to bite into. The Bakut Teh Siu Mai was unique. I loved that the distinct bak kut teh flavor was evident but not overpowering. In this case, wether you are a fan of bak kut teh or not, you will be able to enjoy this dish. Compared to the normal siu mai which tends to be dry, the bak kut teh was dense. It comes served with some bak kut teh soup at the bottom as well as some shitake mushrooms. The Sichuan Dumplings, I loved. Based on the taste, you’d be able to tell immediately that its Sichuan style. It had a slight spicyness to it that was appealing. Eating it with the shredded meat and the chili oil was 👌👌.
Minced Pork with Dry Noodles, RM 7.50
Dry noodles with minced pork and a good sprinkle of scallion oil is my idea of a simple yet tasty dish of noodles. Delicious 😍 What else is there to say?
Osmanthus Jelly, RM 4.80
As mentioned at the start, Bunn Choon is known for their dim sum and egg tart. While I tried the dim sum, the egg tart I did not. Why? Because you cant order the pastry from downstairs once you are seated upstairs unless you yourself head back downstairs to place your order. Yea. Once seated, the thought of going back down seemed like too much of a hassle, which is why most people place their pastry order immediately as they head into the eatery, before heading up. I did not and so, I opted to give their jelly a try instead as this was included in the dim sum menu. Served with three pieces, it was refreshing and light, tasted good too. If you notice, the jelly comes with several pieces of goji berry? in it which provided a slight salty ‘kick’ to an otherwise mildly sweet dish. If you fancy a light dessert, something refreshing … then do consider this jelly.
Would I head back here? Yes, I certainly will. The food was good, I totally dig the ol’ school coffeeshop ambiance, customer service was good and the restaurant is located in one of my favorite areas in town. So, yes, I’d certainly keep this restaurant in mind whenever I fancy having some dim sum next.
