Known to be “The Dim Sum Specialist”, Tim Ho Wan is a hole-in-the-wall eatery hailing from Hong Kong that has truly defied all odds.

This is because Tim Ho Wan’s dim sum have won the hearts of food critics and any Asian epicurean you can imagine.
But now, you need not hop on a plane to savour its delectable Baked Bun with BBQ pork, Steamed Egg Cake, Pan Fried Carrot Cake, or Vermicelli Roll with Pig’s Liver because a Tim Ho Wan outlet has invaded Malaysia – at Boulevard, Mid Valley City to be exact. In fact, Tim Ho Wan Malaysia officially opened its doors just yesterday to a large crowd, all vying to sink their teeth into the restaurant’s offerings.
Tim Ho Wan promises that their dim sum dishes are made using only fresh and premium quality ingredients. The dishes also delectably fresh as they are not pre-steamed and then reheated but made-to-order so as to retain the dim sum’s flavour and texture. Aside from Tim Ho Wan’s “The Big 4 Heavenly King” star dishes, other menu mainstays include the Steamed Chicken Feet with Black Bean Sauce, Steamed Pork Dumpling with Shrimp. and many more.
So if you’re up for pork buns which are crumbly on the exteriors yet fluffy and filled with barbecued pork with oozing sauce, or egg cakes with are so light and spongy with a nice caramelised taste to boot, and velvety-textured vermicelli rolls, just to say the least, you know where to go ;)
