I was invited for ongoing dimsum festival at high ultra lounge which is located at Melleshwaram. The tasting session started with a choice of cocktail and fried basil chicken jiaozi's followed by steam cooked dimsums ending with a crispy dragon jiaozi.
Chef Myo who has strong roots from Burma and Myanmar explains dimsums were exquisite snacks served at tea houses across china. Chef adds when I first came to bangalore and strolled around the market areas to get familiar with the local produce always wanted to incorporate and create delicacies around locally avaiable produce. For example turmeric, chilly powder and spinach are few ingredients incorporated in these dimsums.
Bengalureans are huge fan of butter so we've created a pork and butter dimsum. The dimsum sheets/skin it self has natural colors from trumeric and spinach.
I also asked Chef Myo How are these dimsum sheets created how do they have high glossy finish after steaming?? We use only wheat gluten, Potato starch and tapioca flour these are common ingredients used in the making we ship these products from thailand...
Chef Rabi adds dimsums are my favorite. We've incorporated many locally sourced ingredients to create the ultimate dimsum experience. Our mixology team are also ready to create cocktails that would pair well with our dimsums.
Treat yourself with an amazing selection of dimsums at High Ultra till 26th June.

Our dimsum tasting ended with crispy dragon jiaozi which was stuffed with chicken and served on a bed of plum reduction topped with papaya salad. Over all I felt it was a combination of different flavors. A cantonese dimsums with thai flavors and local produce was amazing prefect to pair with many dishes and cocktails on their menu.
