Hans Dim Sum or Han’s Coffee Shop is where you can get dim sum without pork, no pork served. Located at Central Park, next to Jolibee Food Court. Rather hard to find the place if you are not familiar with the area. It’s located away the main road, the row of shops at the back road where Siang Siang Food Court at 3rd Mile is located. I don’t have the address for it but once you can find Jolibee Food Court (Ground Floor, Lot 2543, 3Rd Mile, Central Park Commercial Centre, 93250 Kuching), you’ll find it.
In fact, this is not the only place you can get dim sums without pork. They also sell their dim sums at Yum Cha BDC, Harbour Court, and soon to be opened place in Kenyalang next to Noodle Expert.
Left: Tea is common to go with dim sum. You can choose either Jasmine (RM3/pot) or Tie Kun Yin (RM3.80/pot).
Right: The various condiments to go with the dim sums.
Not your normal lotus wrapped rice. These are chicken rice wrapped in lotus leaf. Choice of steamed and roasted chicken are available. It’s known as Chicken Rice with Lotus Leaf Wrapped (RM4.50). Not bad for chicken rice, not your normal chicken rice instead you get the extra aroma of lotus leaf which makes it unique. Tender chicken and the rice wasn’t very salty, just right for me.
Han’s signature pau, “Sifu” Pau (RM5.50) It’s pretty big, don’t judge from the outside, it’s packed with goodness in there! You just need to eat this and you’ll be full! What’s in there? Rice, mushroom, chicken, salted egg yolk, and dry shrimp. You better share this else you won’t be able to eat the other dim sums. Pau with rice inside, that is sure something new to me. Taste? Love it!
Left: Chicken Ham Roll (RM3.50)
Right: Century Egg Siu Mai (RM2.50)
Left: Seaweed Roll (RM3.50)
Right: Braised Chicken Wing (RM3.50), very tender and juicy.
Left: Chicken Mushroom Siew Mai (RM3.50).
Right: “Xiu Loong Tong” Pau (RM5.50), be sure to eat this hot! Don’t wait! We waited as we tried this last and guess what?!? The soup were all gone hahaha… Bad move we made. Nevertheless, the taste was still good just missing the soup.
Left: Roasted chicken which happened to be the Chef “Pick” of the Day. Means it won’t be the same with what we got when you go there next time. This is part of the Yum Cha starter (RM16.88).
Right: The Yum Cha Starter (RM16.88), small and average eater will surely be full just ordering this. You can share with another friend of yours. It’s not too bad, not that expensive I must say. Basically these are what you get in this set:
1. Chicken Ham Roll
2. Century Egg Siu Mai
3. Seaweed Roll
4. Braised Chicken Wing
5. Chicken Mushroom Siew Mai
6. Chef “Pick” of the Day
If you order separately, it will be more than RM16.50 for 6 of them. Hence, it’s more worth it to order this set in which you can get 6 items with the price of 5 items.
Overall, the price is quite reasonable, taste of the food isn’t too bad. Only that the location is rather secluded. However, there’s always other locations for it which I had mentioned earlier in the post. At the end of the day, I still prefer my dim sums with some pork oppsss… ;p
Do bear in mind that their dim sums are only steamed when you order instead of leaving it there to steam.
For those non-pork eaters, you have another dim sum place for you now.
Opening hours: 6.30am-2.30pm
Do try it out. Don’t judge by the size, dim sums can be rather filling even though they looked small.
