Well known to worldwide as well as to the folks of Klang Valley as Michelin-starred Hong Kong’s most famous dim sum chain, Tim Ho Wan has been whetting the discerning epicureans around the world with its assorted luscious spread of freshly made Oriental morsels that are bound to get you hooked on for more after a bite.
Debuting since November 2014 in Malaysia particularly at Boulevard, Mid Valley, this Hong Kong dim sum restaurant has been thronged by many curious foodies for the Michelin-standard scrumptious dim sum. At times, you may need to queue for awhile in order to be seated due to the crowds.
Using only the freshest and premium ingredients, there’s no qualm that your taste bud would be amusingly tickled with toothsome banquet that is delivered passionately and deliciously by the maestro from the kitchen. The kitchen is currently helmed by Head Chef Tang Kam Lit who hails all the way from Hong Kong, together with Chef Hew Wai Leong, cooking up a storm to the anticipating diners.
Among the must-try signatures are………
BAKED BUN WITH BBQ PORK (MYR 11.50)
The idea of coating the bun’s exterior with some crumble of light sweetness was delectably promising, as it blends in with the savoury of the meaty filling. Apart from that, the thin layer of the dough bun was also fluffy and soft, thus diners need not worry feeling overly full after trying some.
STEAMED EGG CAKE (MYR 8.30)
Another spectacular house creation that every patrons ought to try. This seemingly common cake actually takes up to 3 days of preparation as natural yeast fermentation is involved, rendering a distinctive texture of pillowy-softness that is really mouthwatering and not sticky to your teeth after every munch.
VERMICELLI ROLL WITH SWEET AND SESAME SAUCE (MYR 8.30)
Unlike the usual chee cheong fun a.k.a rice roll you have elsewhere, the one prepared at Tim Ho Wan holds a much denser nuance, which makes it further more engaging to the enjoyment. The vermicelli rolls are slightly springier too, paired with brilliant creation of sesame sauce, so yeah, not spicy at all! (=
Don’t forget to try out the house special desserts before leaving Tim Ho Wan.
MANGO SAGO POMELO (MYR 9.30)
Tasted very original and refreshing with lush aroma of mango fragrance, as well as pulpy pamelo bits. I personally enjoy this very much.
TONIC MEDLAR & OSMANTHUS CAKE (MYR 7.20)
Ah ha, meet back the famous floral jelly dessert again- Osmanthus cake!
Every bite is full of the flower fragrance, complemented by hint of subtle sweetness, perfect for a delightful round up of a satisfying feast! Comes with tad bounciness and velvet to the palette with its silken surface.
HOMEMADE LONGAN (MYR 6.80)
Also some homey drinks to clear the throat too. I have always love the juicy and tangy bites of dried longans that just go really well when making ‘tong shui’, Chinese soupy dessert.
