Canton-I is very much similar to Dragon-I, just that one served mainly Cantonese cuisine while the latter more concentrated on Shanghainese cuisine. I have only been here once, when it was newly opened at 1U. My reasoning of not frequent this place is because they served what you can get outside, but during my long weekend last week, we head over for lunch.
It’s normally packed with people during lunch and dinner hours, fortunately for us, we just avoided the lunch crowd on a Monday afternoon.
My favourite drink, Cold Yin Yeung.
May ordered the Lor Horn Kor plus Longan.
Still feeling a bit full from that day’s breakfast, I ordered the ‘Char Leung’ instead. It’s not normally available outside at dim sum places, the only place that I knew that serve similar dish is Ah Yat Abalone. What it really is is Cheung Fun wrapped around You Char Kuey. It’s quite a Cantonese dish. The Cheung Fun is smooth and thin enough and just nice wrapping around the crunchy You Char Kuey. It’s very nice when you dipped it into the accompanying soya sauce.
This dish is the reason why I don’t go to this place often. Wantan mee with duck, which you can probably find it anywhere in KL. However, with the tagline that boast it’s the place for Congee and Mee specialist, surely enough it’s pretty good.
A closer look on the texture of the duck meat and mee.
Mee and congee aside, they also have quite a variety of HK type of dessert, like the one here, which is the Lau Sar Bao.
One mistake that we made is having it being the 1st to be served. By the time we finished our Wantan mee and Char Leung, it had already cool down and does not taste that great anymore. So point to note is to have it serve after your main meal. Despite that, the fillings is still tasty and buttery and would taste even better if it’s piping hot!

Canton-I is definitely the place to be if you’re feeling to have something Cantonese. Must try of course it’s the Char Leung, which is not available widely here in KL. So if you are up to it, head to a nearby mall near you!
