Dim Sum at Tuck Sai Cafe, Penang

Last Sunday I had my breakfast, dim sim at Tuck Sai Cafe with my family. Tuck Sai Cafe located just behind the building formerly known as Federal theater and now already changed to cafe called Federal Place if not mistaken. Why we go there? As I heard that dim sim there is nice and consider cheap so can't wait to have it a try. Overall, I felt satisfy with the foods and the services. Although there quite a lot of peoples but they served you friendly and helpful enough and foods are delicious too.

Dim Sim at Tuck Sai cafe actually consider quite traditional as there is not self-service as other dim sum nowadays in Penang and they didn't used the push car to deliver their dim sum too. Customers just need to sit there and you will be served by waiters/waitress walking around with the bamboo basket that filled with their variety of dim sum. You can just pick and choose your favorite dim sum from the basket. Is so easy...I prefer this style as no need queue for long at the counter to choose the foods...Hehe...

By the way, after paid the bill I feel the price really consider cheap for me as we ate around 36 plates for 5pax and only charged for RM 57. That mean less than RM2.
