Why is Tim HoWan so popular? This is my first time eating Tim HoWan in Singapore, my previous experience was in Hong Kong where my friends and I had to wait for about an hour or so before we get to sit and order in a tiny area (Original Store).
Bo Luo Char Siew Bun (BBQ Pork Bun)
As mentioned, I tried the BBQ Pork bun in Hong Kong and out of so many items I felt that it was the best dish. How about the Singapore ones? Yes, it was good! sweet to the bite. I loved the softness of the Bo Luo Bun, you will smell the freshly baked bread. However, I remembered that the ones in Hong Kong have kind of a less sweet taste to it.
Pork Dumpling (Shao Mai – Siew Mai)
Some thing that everyone would order for Dim Sum.
Shrimp Dumpling (Xia Jiao – Ha Gao) – No Picture
I prefer Ha Gao’s skin to be thin and not too dry because it will be sticky and too chewy for my liking but for the Ha Gao was not too bad.
Was ok. Average 😉
Prawn Vermi Roll
The Zhu Chang Fen’s skin was not silky smooth, but then again different people have different liking for the texture. I like it smooth, the rough feel when you place it into the mouth was like air pockets in the roll, but overall it was still good. The sauce was not too oily. Oh also I like it that there are some vegetable inside the roll.
Beef Vermi Roll (Right)
Ewwwww… My friend ordered this wanting to try. Yes, in the end we both concur that it was not nice, not something you should be ordering. If there can be a do-not-recommend star on the menu, this item should get one on it. Frankly, DO NOT ORDER this if you already have the Prawn Vermi Roll. Why? First, we weren’t sure if that was beef even though the colour did appear so. The meat was mixed with a gluey starch which made it abit yucky due to the texture.
Tips for Dim sum: anything more then 15 -20 mins the skin will dry up and hardens eat them while it is hot, or get them to serve item by item. Not applicable here in Tim HoWan at least.
