Chong Lum Hin Seafood – Dim Sum

Chong Lum Hin is your typical old-school Chinese restaurant located in New West.  Given that New West doesn’t have a big selection of dim sum places, Chong Lum Hin is a pretty good alternative.

The restaurant is fairly large with a good-sized parking lot in the rear.  We started out with the Steamed Bean Curd Roll in Oyster Sauce ($3.50) – these were larger than ones that we’ve had at other dim sum restaurants.  I think the filling was more meaty as well.

The Steamed Beef Rice Roll ($3.95) had smooth rice roll wrappers and was pretty good but I wish that there was a bit more soy sauce to go along with it.


We also ordered the Steamed Prawn with Chive Dumpling ($3.50) and the Pan Fried Radish Cake ($3.75).  The dumpling wasn’t that remarkable but I did enjoy the radish cake.


As with most dim sum restaurants, you can also order other dishes during dim sum such as the Singapore Fried Rice Vermicelli ($7.95)  – whenever I eat this, it always turns my lips yellow with curry sauce.  The plate was rather large and we wound up taking some of it home with us.  This was a pretty good rendition.


Prices here were pretty good and the food was everything that I’ve come to expect for enjoyable dim sum.
