A fun Sunday brunch includes tasty dim sum.

WHAT better way to enjoy an idyllic Sunday than a brunch with family and friends in a cosy setting?

You can find just that and more at the Joy Lok Club, the newest food-focused pursuit by Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur, Chinatown, in the form of a fun Sunday brunch.

Held at Quan’s Kitchen, the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, Joy Lok Club promises traditional Chinatown favorites and Western choices.

Tha main attraction is the signature Joy Lok Club station that mimics the street-side lok lok experience. Take your pick from assorted skewered morsels and vegetables to yong tau foo, and pair them with a variety of gravies such as curry and gulai lemak, or sauces like sambal, peanut, sriracha and sweet soy sauce.

Other local favourites include Portuguese grilled fish and Wok-fried Hokkien Mee.

There is also a chicken rice stall offering diners roasted chicken, roasted duck and steamed chicken.

At the dim sum counter, you can choose your favourite dim sum or lo ma gai.

I personally enjoyed the Salted Egg Squid with Chilli and Curry Leaves, and other diners liked it too as they patiently waited at the counter for the empty tray to be replenished.

The Salt and Pepper Squid in Cantonese Box was presented just like the Chinese takeaway boxes. The squid was flavourful and slightly chewy.

Appetisers include fruit rojak, an assortment of salads, chicken mortadella, beef salami, smoked turkey and chicken bak kwa.

The chicken bak kwa was addictive, as well as the selection of artisan cheese served with dried fruit and crackers.

I was delighted to see that Chicken Herbal Soup with Wolfberries and Red Dates were available at the soup counter.
