When I knew about a new dim sum outlet in Puchong, I simply had to try it out, simply because I’m staying there! AhKadKar was the name of the restaurant and amazingly, it’s Halal! I don’t know about you, but it’s very rare for me to find Halal dim sum outlets other than those sold at Hotel restaurants, which would definitely be less-friendly to your pocket.

Stepping into AhKadKar gave me a comfortable feeling, with their green bamboo trees having a calming effect on everyone. The furniture was black and solid, while attractive murals decorate the walls.

We started with several jars of soup and my gosh, they were simply amazing! Very flavourful and infused with all the goodness of meat and herbs used. Just one spoonful was enough to convince me that these soups were boiled with much love and care and much longer time!

Apart from soups, we also tried some of the Halal dim sum offered. There were quite a number of variety in the menu, but my favourite ones were the Chicken Pao, Kad Chicken Bread and Kad Egg tarts. The Chicken pao was made resembling a ‘char siew pao’ which would otherwise be made from pork. This was done pretty nicely, such that the flavour was there, the fillings were pretty generous and the ‘pao’ was fluffy especially when hot. For Halal-eaters, this is a pretty close substitute for ‘char siew pao’.

Kad Radish cake (RM 3.50)
I tried their steamed prawn dumplings too, but their skin was stuck to the bottom of the bamboo steamer, resulting in the less-than-perfect shape when picked. Otherwise, the prawns were decent and of reasonable size.

Kad Siu Mai (RM 3.50)
Kad Laver Crab roll (RM 4)
Kad Glutinous Rice (RM 4.50)
Kad Chicken Tofu Roll (RM 3.50)
The chicken wings had very crunchy skin, but if you’re a health-freak, you could always remove the skin and eat the meat inside only.
Kad Fried Chicken Wings (RM 3.50)
Kad Mutton Dumpling (RM 4.50)
Kad Chicken Bread (RM 3.50)
Kad Chestnut cake (RM 3.50)
I love the egg tarts! Love their medium size too, not too big or small, which was good for female eaters like me.

I actually applaud AhKadKar’s move to make dim sum available to a larger community especially in a multi-racial country like us. Even though I still prefer non-halal dim sum deep down, I would probably go back to AhKadKar again just for their heavenly soups!
