Written by Updated ago

Dim Sum in Malaysia, isn’t limited to just serving breakfast to Chinese people. In fact, thanks to Hong Kong’s exposure of dim sum throughout the world, our dim sum has been getting better by the year. Regardless whether it is traditionally made or fusion with some other cuisine – dim sum will always have a place in our hearts. Beautifully braised chicken feet, warm BBQ Pork Bun, creamy custard bun, the infamous Siu Mai and prawn dumplings, fried yam balls and many more! Hence, here are the list of the best dim sum place to be in Penang!

    Maxim Dim Sum RestaurantNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Maxim Dim Sum Restaurant has been notoriously known for its use of metal dim sum basket instead of the conventional bamboo version. However, that is not all. The queue lasts as long 30-45 minutes on weekends, proving the dim sum to not only be delicious, but affordable as well. The freshness of the dim sum is pretty guaranteed as the turnover of each table is really quick as trays after trays are being shot throughout service!
    Tips

    No reservation. Come early.

    Things to expect

    Plenty of delicious dim sum and not so delicious humans.

    Best with

    Char Siew Pao, Siew mai and Fish Hor Fun.

    Price

    RM3.00 to RM10.00

    Town Steamboat RestaurantNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Dim Sum by day and Steamboat by night - that is why they have two variants to its name. We believe it's a great combo between the two. They're also famous for affordable and fresh dim sum. not to mention a mind boggling variety through out the island of Penang. In Cantonese, we would call it "Cheap, Nice, Worth it".
    Tips

    No reservation and credit card as it is pretty much a food-court style place.

    Things to expect

    One of the cheapest dim sum in town.

    Best with

    Tea.

    Price

    RM3.00 to RM6.00

    Waking up early in the morning can be considered as one of the most painful and unwanted experience that any man or women were to feel. However, if it's waking up for a cause, or even something to reward us by, it wouldn't be so bad. Yong Pin Restaurant begins its daily business at 6am in the morning, which is really early and of course, a great way to get people to wake up. Freshly steamed and ready to serve, Yong Pin Restaurant's dim sum is definitely something worth waking up for.
    Tips

    Parking may be difficult.

    Things to expect

    A variety of reasonably cheap dim sum that starts business extremely early.

    Restoran Tho Yuen (桃园茶楼鸡饭)Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Despite the odd sounding name, Restoran Tho Yuen is often patronised for it's delicious selection of dim sum. Not only can you order great chickens, but do dig in to their variety of homemade dim sums. Especially for anyone who enjoys and adore 'Siew Mai', Restoran Tho Yuen might just be the place for you.
    Tips

    Weekend morning requires queuing, do come early.

    Things to expect

    Horrible parking and a pretty old building.

    Best with

    Chicken rice. Fish porridge, steamed fish and 'har kau'.
