TIM HO WAN: Hong Kong's Very Cheap Michelin-Starred Dim Sum Restaurant

Tim Ho Wan in Chinese: 添好運點心專門店

Address: 9-11 Fuk Wing StSham Shui PoHong Kong
Telephone: 27881266

Whenever I set foot in Hong Kong, eating Dim Sum is always a MUST DO because Hong Kong is known to have the best dim sum in the whole world. The restaurant on the top of my "Places to Eat List" in HK is Tim Ho Wan.  There are actually 2 branches. The first branch that opened is located in Mongkok. Because of it's popularity among locals and tourists, waiting time can take as long as 2 hours. Since we were already famished and pressed for time, we opted to try the other branch located in Sham Shui Po.We arrived at 11:30am and got the last free table.

These are just some of the many articles featuring Tim Ho Wan which are placed at the entrance.

Here's another set of write-ups.
I'm guessing these are the more popular dishes since it's on the paper placemat.

Baked Bun with Bbq Pork $14 - House Specialty. Practically all the tables were ordering it.

The inside of the Bbq Bun. It's really good but I found it a little too sweet.

Steamed Fresh Shrimp Dumpling $20

Vermicelli Roll Stuffed with Shrimp $17

Steamed Pork Dumpling with Shrimp $20

Steamed Dumpling in Chiu Chow Style $10 - Love this one and it has veggies.

Pan Fried Turnip Cake $10

Hot and Sour Vegetable Dumpling $12 - My least favorite. Just did not jive with my taste buds.

Deep Fried Dumpling Filled With Meat $12 - One of my favorites and another house special. The crust was crunchy but soft and chewy on the inside. The crust also had a hint of sweetness in it but it complimented the meat filling.

Steamed Beefball with Bean  Curd Skin $12

Steamed Spareribs with Black Bean Sauce $12
Steamed Chicken Feet with Black Bean Sauce $14

Steamed Egg Cake $12

My conclusion: Definitely a MUST visit. Wonderful dining experience and really cheap for good food. I'll be back for more =)

Here's the menu for your reference (Fyi, I visited the place last Sept 2011):

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.
