Tim Ho Wan is finally in Malaysia with its 1st outlet at Mid Valley and expanding (1 Utama outlet is opening soon). The world’s most affordable 1-Michelin Star Dim Sum Restaurant (Michelin certified only at flagship outlet at Hong Kong Sham Shui Po and North Point) got lots of people waiting in long queue when it first opened its door in November 2014. My sister and I decided to try our luck when we got a morning movie to catch at GSC Signature on one Saturday. Luckily for us, we didn’t have to wait for more than 5 minutes when we joined the queue at 9.30am, partly because the people in front of us were in bigger group so for 2-4 pax it would be easier to get a table faster.
We both had tried the 1-Michelin Star certified outlet at Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong and were very impressed with the food there. We hoped that the Malaysian outlet would give us the same food close to the Hong Kong outlet. Service was a little slack as the restaurant was running full house but we managed to order a table full of food.
Our food came swiftly and we were delighted to taste that all the dim sum were actually quite good and close to Hong Kong flagship outlet. We had the Congee with pork and century egg (RM9.80+), Pan fried carrot cake (RM9.80+), the signature Baked Bun with BBQ Pork (RM10.80+), Lotus Leaf Glutinous Rice (RM12.80+), Vermicelli Roll with Sweet and Sesame Sauce (RM7.80+), and variety of pork and beef dumplings (RM7.80+ – RM10.80+) which included the Siu Mai. We were way too greedy and over ordered. Although we struggled to finish all the food, we still had our favourite pick out of all the dishes. For me, the Baked Bun with BBQ Pork and the Vermicelli Roll with Sweet and Sesame Sauce were my top favourites. The signature Baked Bun with BBQ Pork were absolutely addictive and I could go on eating if I’d not order the other dishes. As for the Vermicelli Rolls, the sesame sauce was spot on and I could also go on eating that alone.
Overall, the food at Tim Ho Wan Malaysia did not disappoint and I will definitely return for more of the pork buns and vermicelli rolls!
