Tim Ho Wan, Mong Kok 添好運點心專門店 (旺角)

If you want authentic Dim Sum experience, Hong Kong is definitely the place to go. With heaps of dining options and food everywhere, you'll be spoilt for choice.

If there's an absolute must-try in Hong Kong then Tim Ho Wan should be it. It's been listed a couple of times in guide books and restaurant guides as a highly recommended place to have dim sum and is by far the world's cheapest Michelin starred restaurant. We were here only a couple of months ago but oh boy, I'm so missing it now.

Dim Sum Menu 
They have two branches at the moment and many reckon that the Mongkok branch is still way much better than the Sham Shui Po one.

Sticky Rice


BBQ Pork Rice Rolls and Prawn rice Rolls

Pork Ribs in Black Bean and Chilli Sauce

Ha Jiao (Steamed Prawn Dumpling)

Deep Fried Chive Dumplings

Steamed Beef Balls

Chicken and Pork Wrapped with Dried Bean Curd

These Baked Buns with BBQ Pork are so full of flavour! DO NOT MISS them! Tim Ho Wan is known for these crispy buns and they were by far the yummiest buns I've ever had.

Roti Boy + Pork Buns = Baked Bun with BBQ Pork 
I've got only one word to describe it....AWESOME!

Osmanthus and Goji Berries Jell, this dessert was beautiful and smelled good too.

Great food at cheap prices. (A$18.70)


 The loooonggg queue says it all. We got there around 5pm and at this early hour we still had to wait 30 minutes for a table. The place is really small and can only seat twenty people hence the queue.

  1. thanks for sharing this! will definitely find time to try timhowan on my next trip to hk.

  2. I ate at the Central (airport station) location twice during my stay also back in March and I am craving it badly... there is something missing from the dim sum here in sydney? maybe because generally our dim sum are merely reheated here and not made fresh?
