In an industrial area where tradition meets innovation, Dim Sum Discovery by Canning is poised to make history as Malaysia’s first-of-its-kind culinary and educational venture. This groundbreaking initiative by the popular Canning Dim Sum is set to redefine not just the culinary landscape but also the way we experience and learn about the art of dim sum.

Founded in 2018 at Canning Garden, Canning Dim Sum has become a local gem, earning recognition from the World Gourmet Awards in the Dim Sum category. Now, with the unveiling of Dim Sum Discovery, the Canning brand is taking a bold step by introducing an immersive experience that goes beyond just dining.

Founder’s passion: Ceylyn Tay’s contagious enthusiasm for the culinary and educational adventure at Dim Sum Discovery by Canning.

Ceylyn Tay, co-founder of Canning Dim Sum, shares the vision: “Five years ago, we envisioned creating a space where the public could witness the entire dim sum production process. Inspired by facilities in Japan, Taiwan, and Korea, Dim Sum Discovery is not just a dining area; it’s an experiential centre designed to bring the magic of dim sum-making to life.”

Located strategically in an industrial area, Dim Sum Discovery’s unique position has sparked curiosity. But make no mistake – this is no ordinary dining spot; it’s a culinary and educational hub.

Conveniently situated near Kek Long Tong, Tasik Cermin, and other hotspots, they are ready to welcome bus tours, corporate dine-ins, and curious explorers. With ample parking and proximity to key attractions, they offer an ideal stop for those seeking an immersive dining experience.

Dim Sum Discovery transcends the conventional dining experience.

It’s about sharing their journey, inspiring the younger generation, and injecting a sense of fun into learning.

As the FIRST Halal manufacturing plant opens for visits in Malaysia, Dim Sum Discovery is making waves. Tay passionately states, “Halal compliance is not exclusive; it’s about ensuring safe and hygienic food production. We want the world to know about our fusion-based and creative dim sum recipes, inspired by our multicultural nation. We’re not just making history; we’re sharing it with the world.”

Dim Sum Discovery stands out with its commitment to education. Visitors will not only witness the manufacturing process but also get hands-on with top-of-the-line kitchen appliances.
