Ban Hong Xiang Dim Sum Restaurant

Harrrrrrro people! After procrastinating over the weekend, time to continue on my Malacca trip posts or else it would be never ending.. So where were we? Oh yeah, Day 2!

Since we were super exhausted after being out the whole day on Day 1 and due to the insufficient sleep on the night before, we woke up slightly late that morning and took our sweet time to prepare ourselves, headed out to Malacca Town around 10-ish.

First itinerary of the day would definitely be breakfast! Kew brought us to try Malacca Dim Sum YUMS The place is still packed with patrons of all age when we arrived. Then one of the worker brought us a tray of hot steaming dimsum to choose once we were seated.

Warning: This is a non-halal post.
Dimsum for three! 

Century egg porridge topped with chopped spring onions and fried shallots (: Preferably one of the best I've ever tastes, the texture of the porridge is perfect to my liking! 

Dimsum wouldn't be complete without Siew Mai (minced pork dumplings)

Fried prawn dumplings, I like this the most. Crispy and filling omnomnomz

Stewed Chicken Feet, I had this all to myself *licks fingers and thumb*

Sweet and sour pork wrapped with tofu skin; juicy and tender. One of my fave too!

Sesame seed balls with lotus paste. FYI,  I hate sesame seed so I didn't try this at all :P

Fried carrot cake. Not bad but it would be better if it's served hot.

Chee cheong fun filled with shrimps and comes with prawn paste. 

Herbal chicken; Tender chicken slice with fragrant smell of the herb but not too overpowering. Surpisingly good!

A pot of Tie Kuan Yin (Iron Buddha Tea LOL) to ease digestion after a heavy breakfast. 

The restaurant is three shoplots huge (imagine how good their business is) to accomodate their big crowd of customers especially during peak hours. 

I noticed that their regular customers are those elderly who come yumcha with their friends. Super vintage restaurant with traditional chinese dining atmosphere. 
I would definitely recommend this place! In case you have no idea what to have for breakfast in Malacca, feel free to try out. I thoroughly enjoyed their dimsum and I would give two thumbs up for their uber friendly and nice service! Why are Malacca people so niceeeeeee, they were excited when we started taking photos of them and stuff. Nice people always made my day (': They offer a huge variety of dimsum and prices are reasonable ranging for RM1.70. Total damage for our breakfast was RM30 including the pot of tea, which is considered cheap compared to having dimsum in KL but I think the uncle actually gave us discount :P
