A Great Variety of Har Kau @Zim Sum Restaurant
Har Kau is a traditional Chinese dumpling served in dim sum made primarily with shrimp. Besides the traditional Har Kau, nowadays you can find other types like the Ebikko Har Kau (Prawn eggs in bright orange color), Hu Zhe Har Kau (Shark's fin) and Zim Bak Har Kau (Crab meat). Served in bamboo baskets, these steamed delicacies are best taken while still warm. Each basket consisting of three dumplings will cost you RM4, or RM3 if you opt for the standard type.
Besides Har Kau, they also serve many other varieties of dim sum of course. If you plan to "break fast" here, make sure you arrive early (before 8am) as it is very packed between 8-10am.
