Yum Cha At Fu Er Dai (Best Dim Sum In Georgetown)

Here are a bunch of dim sum that we have tried! We are going to talk about them one by one so you will know what to order during your visit!

How To Order

Unlike the common dim sum restaurants with moving cards, you need to order your dim sum straight from the counter itself. So, how do you do it? You need to take a tray from the right side, and queue! Remember to take your sheet as well. You know, the one that they will tick the boxes to keep track of how much dim sum you take!

We love it when people queue in an orderly fashion. There are times when the queue is really long,and there are times when there is no queue at all. Our advice is to go to the counter when there is no queue and you will have an ample of time to choose your dim sum. If you don’t know what to eat, you can always ask for a recommendation from their helpful staff!

The dim sum is placed in a long stretch. First, you will see the steamed dim sum, followed by the a case for baos / chee cheong funs, and lastly, we have the fried dim sums. As for the main dishes such as noodles, you can order it from the comfort of your own table. It is the same for the tea, too! You can refill the tea by yourself at the hot water station!

What To Order

Fu Er Dai has approximately, 20 steamed dim sums, 4 types of baos, 10 different kinds of fried dim sums, and more than 10 types of main dishes comprising of noodles, rice, and stir-fried vegetables! We have tried a bunch of stuff, and here are the best of the best!

Signature Siew Mai with King Prawns (RM6.80)

Their siew mai is beautifully wrapped with thin wantan wrappers. Fu Er Dai offers two types of siew mai, their signature siew mai with king prawns and another one topped off with fish roe. We love the one signature one as the prawns and pork meat goes really well together, taste and texture wise.

Exploding Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun (RM7.30)

Their exploding salted egg yolk custard bun is hands down really explosive. Being one of the best baos we have ever tasted, it has a very thin layer of bao, and a generous amount of salted egg yolk custard. Be careful when you sink your teeth in, because it may ooze out in all directions!

Prawn Dumpling (RM6.80)

Let’s take a moment and look at how beautifully wrapped that har gow is! The no-nonsense prawn dumpling is filled with juicy prawns. It tastes wonderful with a little dip of chilli sauce. If you are looking for something even more flavourful, try out their Spinach Prawn Dumpling that comes in the same price!

Scallop Prawn Dumpling (RM6.80)

Planning to elevate your prawn dumplings? How about with scallop because they have that too! Their version of scallop prawn dumpling comes with prawns wrapped up with wantan wrappers, and topped with a piece of scallop and fish roe. It feels like different types of seafood dancing in your mouth!

Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken (RM4.80)

If you are feeling really hungry, you know steamed glutinous rice is the best way to go! Their version of steamed glutinous rice with chicken comes with fluffy rice. Normally, glutinous rice is a little hard. It has a good balance of chicken, rice, and sauce, so you won’t have to eat one without the other!

Deep Fried Prawn Dumpling (RM5.30)

A fried version of har gow! It is hard to choose between deep fried prawn dumpling and deep fried beancurd roll with prawn. We think that deep fried prawn dumpling is the best! Why? It will feel full in your mouth, and you have the extra crunchy edges on the side to enjoy! What a treat!

Prawn Rice Flour Roll (RM5.30)

Honestly, this photo doesn’t do the chee cheong fun any justice. We are so sorry! They have chee cheong funs with two different types of fillings, prawns and scallops. We love it because the chee cheong fun is silky smooth and there’s prawns in almost every bite. Unfortunately, the portioning is a little small, order two!

Braised Fish Head Yin Yong ( Medium – RM 20.00 | Large – (RM27.00)

Braised Fish Head Yin Yong is one their bestselling main dishes. It comes with chunks of fried fish head, an assortment of vegetables, and bee hoon noodles. The medium size is good for three to four people to share! If you are not into fish head, you can always opt for Hokkien Char, or Cantonese Style Fried Yin Yong.

Osmanthus Jelly (RM4.80)

Osmanthus Jelly is the bomb! This perfect cube jelly consist of dried osmanthus flowers, and wolfberries. It works really well as a palate cleanser in between dim sums. For the best taste, eat it immediately after ordering! Unfortunately, this sweet treat is only available on Saturdays, and Sundays.

  1. This is one of the worst-tasting dim sums in Penang! The only good feature is the somewhat cooling environment in the early morning and the availability of parking space. Other than those, this place offers very poor dim sum. If you have never had dim sum before, then this is a place to roughly see what dim sum dishes LOOK like. The taste itself, on the other hand, is a disgrace to the culinary world of dim sum.
