Eating Chinese at Tim Ho Wan

One of the most anticipated restaurant openings in the metro. It is said to be the most affordable Michelin-starred restaurant in the world. But I read that it is a misconception. The branch here in Manila is not one of them but still, it’s still the same THW restaurant who received a Michelin star in HK. There is one of two in HK just don’t know which branch was awarded 1 Michelin star.

THW is famous for its pork buns and dumplings where they don’t scrimp on ingredients.

We tried their Baked Buns with BBQ pork of course (too much hype). The texture was different from what I expected. The pastry’s too soft and the pork inside was delicious. Its a lil sweet though so one order of these was enough for me. It is recommended that the buns must or best be eaten within 15mins once it gets out of the oven.

The dumplings were good too. Generous serving of shrimp and other ingredients, the quality was also good. For the prawn dumpling, the wrapper has a soft rubbery texture where once you pop it in your mouth it gives you a smooth feeling and of course delicious as well.

I wanna go back and try the other samplers like the spring roll, spinach, and wasabi dumplings? Etc. I was with someone that time who I think wouldn’t like my choices when it comes to dumplings so I went for the safer ones. Haha.

I would have given 5stars if the service was fast and if they were able to serve the orders on the right table. And the food was ok but nothing extraordinary.
