Dodo Dim Sum & Bowls Dishing Out Halal Dim Sum & Thai Dishes

Dim sum is something we Chinese eat a lot and I'm glad we can now share these wonderful treats with our Muslim friends! Dodo Dim Sum & Bowls by Ri-Yaz Global Food Brands is serving up a large array of Halal dim sum and Thai delights.

I'm gonna be realll honest in this review. I do prefer the original Chinese dim sum taste but some of these were pretty good! The dishes were tweaked to be Halal and suit Malay palates while maintaining as much of the original dish as they could.

Classic handcrafted dishes prepared by Sifu Lee and his team like the siew mai, minced meat dumplings and har gow are all available here! The selection is actually quite good for Halal dim sum. There is a selection of assorted Chee Cheong Fun, featuring the chef’s recommended Honey BBQ Chee Cheong Fun. We basically sapu-ed the chee cheong fun; must eat with the chilli! 👍🏻

Didn't favour the lo mai kai as the original taste I'm used to has been replaced by something akin to Maggi Curry powder. However, the others really enjoyed it and even ordered another serving! Stir Fried Radish Cake in Dodo style was GOOD! This is similar to the ones you can see the pasar malam uncle frying up. This Chinese approves 👍🏻👍🏻

'Woh tip' (fried dumplings?) is also recommended! 👍🏻 Make sure you dip it in the shredded ginger and vinegar sauce for maximum oomph. The Crispy Mashed Taro Pie is not bad too; crispy shell with a melty taro inside bursting with flavour. 👍🏻

One of the items that we were excited to try - charcoal custard buns with salted egg! Sadly, the filling wasn't as 'flowy' as we expected but I liked the flavour. Better than your basic paos. Not bad, can order. 👍🏻

There is an assortment of Thai food prepared by Chef Khun Ben.

They served 4 types of Thai boat noodles here - Nam Tok (rich dark beef broth), Khao Soi (spicy coconut curry broth), Tom Yum (hot & sour broth) and Nam Sai (intense chicken broth). Unfortunately, none appealed to me as they tasted like something out of a Maggi packet.

Crispy fried som tam is ok if you enjoy tempura texture. However, we found the sauce to taste kinda odd. The Gai Pad Prik Pao (chicken wings) comes with rice and portion is quite filling.

Khao Klukh Krapi shrimp paste fried rice and crispy chicken skin were average. Prefer the fried wonton skin.

And now, dessert! Of course, how can you miss mango sticky rice with the fragrant coconut aroma? The Crispy Shanghai Pancake ('woh peng' for the Chinese) was enjoyable and definitely close enough. 👍🏻

Final verdict?

As a Chinese, I have better options elsewhere but for Malays and people who don't consume pork, this is a good Halal alternative! Wouldn't mind having the fried radish cake, woh tip and custard bun again. Looking forward to more Dodo Dim Sum & Bowls branches opening at popular malls in the Klang Valley.
