Ok. So this is the first ever location of Tim Ho Wan. Open all evening for dim sum, and hella cheap. Clean freaks will not like it. It’s hot, a little stinky, and service is rude, curt, and impatient. But hey, one Michelin star, novelty, a true example of HK’s local of the local dim sum scenes, and the rushed impatient culture. What’s not to love?
This unsuspecting little Dim Sum spot holds a secret: it’s a Michelin-awarded restaurant and part of a growing culinary empire. One of the cheapest establishments to receive the coveted Star, Tim Ho Wan promises exceptional Dim Sum at affordable prices.
Diners who brave the hours-long queues are rewarded with some of the best in Hong Kong. Aside from the succulent dumplings, their Baked Buns with BBQ Pork—crunchy, light buns packed with sweet barbecue pork—are a must-try, and absolutely worth the wait.
As branches in other countries have begun popping up, the clamor for Tim Ho Wan’s Dim Sum just keep getting bigger!
Practically what saved my friends and I for almost all days of our college life. Angkong siomai is the best, and I am not lying a bit! Anytime we eat at Angkong surely means having a great mood and a happy tummy the whole day. I remember how this place only started as a kiosk, and now they already have three branches around UST. They offer steamed and fried siomai and dumplings for only 50php! So budget-friendly, right?
