Max Gourmet 美食之家

Max Gourmet is no stranger to many people that works in Free Trade Zone or living some where that area. Now it’s opening its third wing in Gurney Plaza, and it gives more people to taste their specialty of food.

We didn’t realize until last week, hubby and I went up there for a movie. Oh, talking about movie, if you’re a woman who loves romance comedy, this is a good one for you, ‘The Proposal’ by Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. It was something sweet and romantic.

Ok, back to food… while we know we have to kill some time before entering to the theater, hubby and I walked into this new outlet without second thought, and ordered what Max Gourmet offers on their specialty. And one of them is…

Egg Tart, RM1-50 per piece. It’s not that sweet, and it’s definitely good to have. The puff pastry is absolutely crispy and you can’t even hold it for long, and this is the type of pastry that could make you hunger for more. Well, for now that works for me.

Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken is something that’s filling and something that not to miss, especially you’re going for dim sum.

Max Siew Mai.

Fresh Prawn Dumplings. The prawns are definitely fresh and springy.

Last item is Deep Fried Prawns with Pastry. Though tiny, but it’s one of the best dim sum item to have. Only if you’re not cautious about oily food.

Well, the best is still having a pot of Chrysanthemum Chinese Tea to wash off the oil that had consumed.

My dine in experience at the outlet opposite to Queensbay mall, by the time the dim sum was served, it was cold. May be the air cond is too cold. :(

Looks like Max Gourmet gotten popular among Penangites. I like their Dim Sum from the beginning they open their first Dim Sum named Maxim restaurant in Perkaka. The opening of the Gurney branch proved that Max is expanding its business.

I used to have my breakfast at the one in Pekaka. It opens earlier and have more dim sum IMO. Seriously their dim sum is not the cheapest but beh hiam lah...I like their lotus leaf rice.
