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!
We get a lot of gigs in the UST area or Manila in general, but I live in Cavite, so I have to get there really early like 2 in the afternoon even when the gig’s at 9 in the evening. It’s not a problem because I still have a lot of friends still studying or just living in the area, so we drop by Angkong’s. Their dimsum is extremely juicy and flavorful.
Won't ever forget this place.
It was my first time doing field work in Binondo and my bosses wanted to eat lunch in this small restaurant around the area. Being the newbie and the 'baby girl' in the team, i didn't really know what to expect.
They ordered for me and then came the biggest pork chop i've seen in my existence lol. It was an awkward time as it was my first day at field, first time to eat with the bosses, and i didn't want them to find out that i was 'masiba'. By the end of lunch time, i didn't even finish the whole pork chop because i was trying to be timid.
Went back after a few weeks alone and i was so satisfied that i finally had the chance to finish the whole thing 😋
