A really good post on Penang.

A stone’s throw distance away from the famous tourist attraction- Kek Lok Si is a new hotel- De View Hotel and Modern Asia Kitchen 壹丰庭 is a tenant that occupies a prominent spot of the hotel. The Chinese restaurant dishes out a Dim Sum menu in the mornings and usual Chinese menu in the evenings. While the Dim Sum menu is not very big, diners can also order some stir fry dishes from the Chinese menu. The prices are slightly on the higher side but they offer great quality in return… as well as comfortable dining atmosphere (spacious and fully air-conditioned). This place is definitely one of the better places to go to in Air Itam… for Dim Sum.

To set the record straight- all dishes were served to us piping hot so we were pretty happy with this commitment. But of course, with this, the waiting time was slightly longer than expected. The Fried Shrimp Rolls left us with the deepest impression, unlike any Shrimp Rolls, Modern Asia Kitchen uses some pastry skin (almost similar to McD’s pie skin) instead of the customary beancurd sheet; the filling was generously filled with bouncy, juicy Shrimps. It was dangerously addictive and definitely pleasant on the palate. The Steamed Scallop Dumplings were great too, though the sizes were slightly smaller than the usual ones but the flavor-combo was good and the seafood was fresh. None of the dishes disappoint and as far as consistency is concerned, they have been managing it well (telling from our dining experience).
