Tim Ho Wan!

Editorial Review

Was beyond elated when I got invited to Tim Ho Wan’s media food tasting; finally get to try it without having to queue. I work near PS and every time I pass by Tim Ho Wan, the snake-long queue is just so crazy! Kudos to all you food-hunters out there who are gamed enough for this 1-2 hours wait!

Helmed by the renowned one Michelin star, Chef Mak Kwai Pui, this is the hole-in-the-wall eatery’s first overseas outlet. Lucky us, we no longer have to hop on a plane to savour the famous Baked Bun with BBQ pork. The pork buns are heavenly; crumbly and fluffy on the outside, BBQ pork with oozing sauce inside.. I tried this with minimal anticipation as I am not a fan of BBQ pork bun but this mighty sweet-salty combo completely changed my perception.. it is freaking A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!

Legendary bao that everyone was highly anticipating for!

Oh yes, we went crazy ordering it :X

Baked Bun with BBQ Pork, must try ok!!

The pork buns make up one-fourth of the Big 4 Heavenly Kings. The remaining three are as per below..

Steamed Egg Cake
Light and spongy with a subtle hint of sweetness, my ideal snack pls.

Vermicelli Roll Stuffed with Pig’s Liver
I didn’t dare to try this as I don’t eat innards at all. The other bloggers who tried love it though!

Pan Fried Carrot Cake
Love how it is spiked with radish bits for the extra oomph.

Behind the scene! I feel like a noob as compared to their food photo-taking skills!

Patrons of Tim Ho Wan are not only drawn by the cheap prices, but also the fact that the dim sum are delectably fresh. They are handmade-to-order instead of the usual pre-steamed and re-heated practice. Remember to always eat them hot for optimum taste! Prices start from SGD3.80 onwards, other menu mainstays include…

Prawn Dumpling
Prawns are so big, fresh and succulent!

Spring Roll with Egg White
What a unique twist from the usual spring rolls! Love how flavorful it is despite the lack of the usual radish filling.

My favourite! Actually when it comes to dim sum, most of my favorites contain prawns cuz they taste so good when dipped in soya sauce! Hehe

Much sweeter than the usual Osmanthus cake but very very light. 很爽口!
