This is something niche. Armed with a map in my hand, off i went to see Ong Tee Keat... Ong Tee Keat's constituent, Pandan Jaya. After driving along a main road which is full of pot holes, we arrived at Y E Traditional Dumplings Restaurant.
The restaurant offers a variety of tea and glutinuous rice dumplings. It was said that their glutinuous rice dumplings, which were also known as Y.Y. Famous Dumplings, were very famous. Boxes of tea leaf were placed neatly behind the cash register. I find it an amazing feast to the eyes.
The interior of the restaurant is oriental and quaint, with Chinese caligraphy paintings and Chinese traditional musical instruments adorned each and every walls. It is truly a comfortable place to sample and savour the flavour of tea.
I ordered Jasmine Tea @ RM3.50. Instead of ordering a pot, i ordered a cup. That's why it comes in a tea bag. If you order a teapot, it would come in freshly brewed tea leaf.
My friend ordered Cantonese Glutinuous Rice Dumpling @ RM5.50. The glutinuous rice dumpling is triangular in shape. The outlook doesn't look appealing when it was served to us and it tasted just alright to me.
I ordered Hakka Glutinuous Rice Dumpling @ RM6.50. This type of glutinuous rice dumplings is called "pillow rice dumplings". The use of large amount of dark soy sauce came to me as a surprise. I find it rather salty and the original flavour of a glutinuous rice dumpling has lost.
The taste of a good glutinuous rice dumpling should come from the flavourful glutinuous rice itself, not from heavy usage of dark soy sauce.
