One thing I love about Hong Kong is that you can eat in restaurants that are awarded with a Michelin star for a fraction of what Michelin star restaurants usually cost. Tim Ho Wan is the perfect place to enjoy the famous Hong Kong Dim Sums, which are assorted dishes, such as dumplings, buns, or sticky rice, served in small servings and usually enjoyed in the company of family or friends.
My favourite dish in Tim Ho Wan is called The Heavenly Kings. A combo of four dishes that includes a baked bun with BBQ pork, vermicelli rice with fatty duck liver, pan-fried radish cake, and steamed egg cake, this set is an absolute must-try.
The signature dish of the restaurant, the BBQ pork bun, is what sets Tim Ho Wan apart from other notable Dim Sum restaurants. The tender BBQ pork filling paired with the soft bun, glazed with sugar on top, creates a tasty combination that no other pork buns can match. Of course, other dishes in the menu are also worth trying. Due to its popularity, the queue tends to be quite long, so be sure to avoid lunch or dinner hour. Tim Ho Wan is the perfect place to explore the traditions of Cantonese cuisine.
