Bintulian can finally rejoice for their cravings for proper and good dim sum has finally ended. The savior here is the new food court at Parkcity Mall called Mersawa. When I first stumble upon this food court, I thought it was some Japanese food chain but after close inspection, it turns out to be a local food court with some nifty decorations and style. It resembles a lot more of a chic café than a food court. With bright orange and white colors splash around the place and a touch of elegance with timber grain counters.

You can get varieties of delicacies here ranging from chicken rice to some double boiled soup to nourish the soul and mind. I’m there to try out their dim sum and was amazed to found out that they served hotel standard fare there. The little precious dim sum was molded into various shapes with different fillings in each one. From the look of the crowds, I bet it will be a hit with the Bintulu folks since prices are reasonable and most importantly, it taste good.
