Tim Ho Wan has always prided itself in being “the world’s cheapest Michelin-star restaurant.” The term Michelin, after all, elevates any restaurant that has been awarded such an honor. Technically speaking, though, only its branches in North Point, Tai Kok, and Sham Shui Po in Hong Kong received one Michelin star each back in 2015. So far. Be that as it may, Tim Ho Wan, whichever branch you go to for dim sum, is a preferred spot for the yummiest yum cha.
Especially their heavenly Baked BBQ Pork Bun! Everybody’s favorite, of course. What with that succulently tenderest pork bathed in a sweet-savory sauce oozing out of a soft cloud of biscuity dough. What’s not to love?
Be prepared to wait for a table. There does not seem to be an hour when there is no queue for these delicious and reasonably priced yum cha.
