Dim sums are usually eaten in the morning, but at How Her Siang Timsum, they serve it from 6pm onwards. Out of curiosity, I ordered the glutinous rice and chicken in a bun (lor mai kai pau). The pau (RM4.50) was nothing to shout about – it was the presentation that caught my eye. I thought the filling was a tad too salty. The siew mai was very porky – in a good way. It looked like any other siew mai, but the combination of minced pork and shrimp gave it a nice, chunky bite. Come to think of it, most of the dim sums here were porky. Even the har kau (prawn dumpling) had meat inside. It could be my greed talking, but I found the dim sums slightly small. We ordered another two serving of siew mai to satisfy our tummies.
Deep fried yam puff was light and crispy on the outside, with a delicious, savoury filling. I didn’t care much for the fried prawn dumpling; the skin was a tad thick for my liking. Our meal came up to about RM25, inclusive of drinks. I wouldn’t say this is the best dim sum I’ve had, but it certainly is one of the better dim sum shops that operates during the night. Ambiance: 5/10
Food: 6.5/10 (non-halal)
Verdict: Bored of satay celup? Try dim sum instead!
