Jin Xuan Hong Kong Dim Sum @ Damansara Jaya, PJ

This place is always packed with families on weekends enjoying a late dim sum brunch. This is a good place to go as the dim sum are affordable and there is a huge variety. The downside is that it is really packed on weekends and you have to register at the counter where they'll call you once a table is available.
Customers spilling onto the road
Minced Pork Century Egg Congee
The congee was good overall but it was not very smooth as you can still feel the rice grains. For this price however, it is acceptable.
Minced Pork Potstickers
This was quite good although the skin was a little thicker and the bottom of the potsticker was not crispy enough. I wished they provided 2 saucers of ginger and vinegar dip as one is not sufficient. Or at the very least, more ginger shreds. I think the potstickers at Esquire Kitchen are the best d^_^b
Prawn Cheong Fun
The cheong fun was smooth and silky and the prawns were of average size. Quite good, I'd say.
Loh Mai Kai
Loh Mai Kai was not bad though I think the char siu is a bit too sweet for my liking.
Lotus Leaf Glutinous Rice
The Lotus Leaf Glutinous Rice was value for money as the lotus leaf's fragrance permeated the glutinous rice. JS enjoyed this dish as it had lots of filling. The salted egg went really well with the glutinuous rice and bits of meat.
Abundant filling
Steamed Prawn Dunpling
The prawns here are big and bouncy. Very nice.
Steamed Pork Dumpling
The Siu Mai here are also humongous. Lots of filling with a sweet taste to it due to the pork juices.
Braised Chicken Feet
The chicken feet here are not intact =.= The sauce is also much thicker which wasn't really my preference.
Yam Puff
Yam Puff was good with crunchy outer layer and creamy yam within. The char siu filling was sweet and it complemented the taste of the yam on the outer later.
Deep Fried Prawn Dumpling in Cheese
This was the most expensive item on the menu =.= The fried wantans were very crispy and the prawns inside were huge. My bro loved the cheese topping.
Egg Tart
The egg tarts were flaky and eggy. JS thought that they were not too bad although he had tasted better ones elsewhere.
Cha Siu Bao
The char siu pau here had lots of filling although the pau skin was a bit too thick for my liking.

In conclusion, do come to Jin Xuan Hong Kong Dim Sum for a variety of relatively cheap dim sum. If you're looking for something refined, I'd suggest Grand Palace at Pavilion.
