Tim Ho Wan, the most famous Chinese Dim Sum or Hong Kong Dim Sum had just opened its door in MidValley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur. Those of you who had had the opportunity to dine in this Michelin starred restaurant would know that Tim Ho Wan’s main branch in Hong Kong serves the best dim sum in Hong Kong. I remembered queuing up for a table in their main branch for about 2 hours. Yes, 2 hours just to get inside the restaurant that served the best dim sum in Hong Kong.
Tim Ho Wan Megamall had opened quite a number of branches around South East Asia in order to cater for those who do not wish to travel all the way to Hong Kong just for their dim sum. Tim Ho Wan Megamall had also opened quite a number of branches in Singapore too. Previously, any Malaysians who wishes to dine in Tim Ho Wan but are not willing to travel to Hong Kong, their next best alternative would be Tim Ho Wan’s branch in Singapore. Now you do not need to do so as the latest branch had just opened in Mid Valley Megamall. If you want to beat the queue, you better be early.

Due to various factors, the dim sum serve here may not be as good or better than the main branch of Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong. The best is always at the main branch, right? So what should you order here? Tim Ho Wan is famous for its Baked Bun with BBQ Pork which is priced at RM10.80 for a set of 3 buns.
If you like wasabi, you should order Tim Ho Wan’s Wasabi Salad Prawn Dumpling. Priced at RM10.80 also, the salad prawns were wrapped with dim sum skin, fried and served with wasabi sauce and fish roe. The wasabi sauce is not too overpowering and everything tastes very good together.
Everytime I go to a Chinese Dim Sum restaurant, I never fail to order the Pork Dumpling with Shrimps. It was quite good, but I remembered the ones in Tim Ho Wan’s main branch were much better as the prawns are bigger and fresh. This Pork Dumpling with Shrimps are priced at RM10.80 also.
Pork Rib with Black Bean Sauce will never be deleted from my list of must order item. I have always wanted to learn how to cook this. But until today, I do not know the secret of cooking this Pork Rib with Black Bean Sauce. Pork Rib with Black Bean Sauce, I just love it.
The Chicken Feet with Abalone Sauce is also quite good. It would be better if more flavours are added into the dish.
Tim Ho Wan’s Steamed Egg Cake is also a must order item. I would strongly suggest you to eat it immediately upon served as it is best when taken warm. Tim Ho Wan’s Steamed Egg Cake is priced at RM7.80.
The Prawn Dumplings are also very good and they are so good that we ordered 2 baskets. Each basket is priced at RM11.80, not cheap at all.
Pan Fried Carrot Cake is also one of my favourite. Although it doesn’t taste as good as the one in Hong Kong, but it beats the others in Malaysia (at least the ones that I’ve been to and tried before). Love them.
These are some of the other dim sums we had and they are :- Steamed Spinach Dumpling Shrimp at RM7.80.
Dumpling Teochew Style at RM7.80.
Beef Balls with Beancurd Skin at RM7.80.
Vermicelli Roll Pig’s Liver at RM10.80.
Don’t let this picture of the Mango Sago Pamelo fool you. This Mango Sago Pamelo which is priced at RM8.80 is one of the best we had that day. It was cold and refreshing and it is good to be taken after a heavy meal of dim sum.
