CANTON - i

Canton-i located in One Utama, Petaling Jaya is a typical Hong Kong styled "Char Chan Teng" (cafe).

The modern decor with white bird cages hanging from the ceiling and butterfly's motif wood panel on one side of it's wall were eye catching and cleverly done.


We were there on a Monday evening and was surprised with their brisk business.

Service was prompt and efficient.

Cute butterfly's motif decor.

Polo bun with a slice of butter kept cool with some ice cubes-the pineapple's crust was not too sweet and the bun was soft-Rm4/

Egg yolk and Custard bun-the outer skin was skinny soft and the design was very appealing-oozing with the runny egg/custard fillings-Rm6/

Congee with lettuce and condiments like sliced fish meat, pig's stomach, bits of cuttle fish tentacles-garnished with toasted peanuts and spring onion-love the smooth, translucent and gooey congee-Rm11.80/

Congee with Carp Fish and Meat-sliced fish meat was fresh -the minced meat were filled with fatt choy (black moss), crispy Chinese crullers- garnished with spring onion and again the congee was perfect-Rm10.80/

Fried Udon (Wheat noodle) with tiny strips of chicken meat, thinly sliced red and green capsicum-tasted peppery but not worth the money-Rm16/

Fried Beef Kway Teow (flat noodle) served on a hot plate, with small slices of tender beef, bean sprout and egg-tasted more like Char Kway Teow-Rm15/

Wan tan mee with roast duck thigh-noodle was springy and well tossed but the roast duck meat was bland-looks delicious but deceiving-Rm17.80/

A pot of Pu-Er tea for three-Rm15/

Total bill:Rm120/
Location:G-208, Gnd Floor,
1 Utama Shopping Mall,
Petaling Jaya,

Congee with Carp Fish and Meat-sliced fish meat.. love that too!
don't have to pay premium for the thigh part.. I think it's overpriced.

Still think they do a mean prawn wanton, almost resembling the ones in HK.

Looks like a good place for brunch :-D Nice dim sum. I will remember this place next time I am at 1-Utama.

Regarding bonsai, I am not familiar with it as I have not grown one before. For beginner, try one small 'sui mei' (water jasmine) tree (Latin name is Wrightia religiosa) that usually cost around RM30 each. Good luck!

Everything looks quite nice! Rarely do I see tea put on top of a burner or see butter on top of ice.

The purple custard bun looks very pretty! I've never seen butter kept cool on ice before - nice touch!
