Restaurant details
Reviewed June 25, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by a taxi driver and apparently it has been in business for over 30 years. There is a wide variety of dim sum to choose from and they are served by the staff using the traditional method with trays, allowing you to choose at your table. Prices of the dim sum range from RM2.20 to RM5.00, with majority around RM 3.00. The food is pretty good although I had tasted better ones elsewhere (of course a lot more expensive too). There were a lot of staff and they were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is not airconditioned so it was a bit hot, but I prefer this traditional feel than a new style airconditioned one that can easily be found in Singapore.

Overall, with such affordable prices and friendly staff, this place is really worth going.

We had decided to visit Yong Pin Restaurant for dim sum breakfast instead of Dai Tong as Yong Pin was nearer to Traders Hotel and the kids were starving. The place was quite busy but we still manage to get a 8 seater table.

Upon seating down trays of dim sum was delivered. Some of the items we ordered that is worth mentioning is the har kow, shrimp siew mai, char siew pau and fried prawn pancake.

All the ingredients especially the shrimps were fresh and firm. The skin of the har kow was not too thick and just nice. The char siew pau filling was slightly on the sweet side but overall it was still good. The prawn pancake was interesting and quite good.

Overall i still say it is not bad and worth a return visit when i return to Penang.
