Oriental Pavilion

To kick off our little trip up the west coast of Malaysia, we decided that it would be nice to sit down to a dainty meal of dim sum. A far cry from the hustle and bustle of London's tiny Chinatown restaurants where dim sum is sometimes served as an all-you-can-eat buffet, our first official vacation meal stop was a picture of serenity.

With soft piped-in jazz, the pre-noon scene was a rather quiet one with the restaurant starting to fill up only as we were leaving.

The favourites were all there, and very well represented.

I found the yam puffs particularly enjoyable - with a light crispy outer shell and a generous filling, they weren't overly oily or over-fried.

We also enjoyed a small portion of roast pork and roast duck that came served rather unusually, with some soft steamed tofu.

While the dim sum was definitely decent, it was the ambience that I enjoyed most - a Chinese restaurant with the classic set-up only perhaps missing the gentle sounds of the gu zheng coming from a corner.

Tea, anyone?
