Tim Ho Wan just opened last week, its dim sum have won the plaudits of food critics and the hearts of epicureans around the world. Rejoice,as we need no travel to Singapore or Hong Kong for a taste of the famed Big 4 Heavenly Kings by Tim Ho Wan.
The Big 4 Heavenly Kings are Baked Bun with BBQ Pork, Steamed Egg Cake(Ma Lai Gao), Vermicelli Roll with Pig’s Liver and Pan Fried Carrot Cake. Tim Ho Wan claimed it's dim sum are made of fresh and premium quality ingredients, delectably fresh as they are not pre-steamed and reheated but its made-to-order, as to retain the dim sum’s flavour and texture. This is so true, as all the dishes I ordered arrived pipping hot!
Generously filled with fresh springy prawn. However the skin failed me, as it's quite thick and not smooth.
Despite fried, it's not greasy at all. Love the crispy skin and perfectly cooked shrimp.
This delicious beef ball comes in a rather large size.
Baked Bun with BBQ Pork (RM10.80)
This is the HOT item here.
Crumbly on the outside with sweet salty BBQ oozing sauce inside. Marvelous!!!
Pan Fried Turnip Cake
Must try!!! Thin crunchy layer on the outside and soft inside. Very much flavourful and I love it's texture.
Steamed Egg Cake (RM7.80)I love 'Ma Lai Gao' and this is the best I've eaten to date. My new found gem!!!
So soft and fluffy with just the right sweetness. 😍😍😍
Glutinous Rice with Lotus Leaf (RM12.80)
Nothing to shout about.
Vermicelli Roll with Shrimp (RM12.80)
My most regretted order! Enough said LOL
Must try, also known as "Kwai Fa Gao" this the perfect dessert to end the meal.
Thick and creamy mango purée. Best of all, not too sweet!
Total damages for 2 person dining are RM130++. Chinese tea refillable at RM2 per glass.
My verdict, being the only Michelin starred dim sum restaurant it's a wee bit overhyped. However it's still worth going with it's well priced, especially for certain item on its menu. I'm not sure if it's culture in Hong Kong, during my visit they are blasting HK 90s hitz song! So loud, it's kinda irritating....
