Tim Ho Wan Revisited @ IFC Mall, Hongkong


The news of Tim Ho Wan opening in Singapore did not dampen the enthusiasm in the latest trip to Hongkong. I insisted on a visit despite our very packed food and travel schedules. They open at 945am but list their operating hour at 9am…to generate some hype before their opening perhaps?

Always a must order.


酥皮焗叉燒包 (HKD 18)

I always wish that seconds are ordered yet space is usually the constraint. Still so good – these pine apple crusts are sweet with a lovely contrast of savoury within the bun. Still a fan!


三星烧卖 (HKD 24)

Anything limited edition sells but these are deconstructed siew mais (without their familiar yellow skins) with a variety of toppings – dried oyster, pig tongue and black moss. Ordinary methinks.


汁蒸排骨 (HKD 14)

Each piece was meaty, delicious!

家鄉咸水角 (HKD 14)

One oily delight that I fancy, the chewy mochi skin dimsum especially.

古法糯米雞 (HKD 26)

I have been wanting to try this since day one – portions are jawdropping kind of huge. It’s a bak zhang well done – stuffed so generously with ingredients and is the ultimate heavy weight.


油菜(HKD 18)

Blanched greens.

beancurd roll

A different take on the usual springroll and I prefer this better to springroll. The beancurd skin was light and crisp with the generous stuffing of vegetables.

黃沙豬潤腸 (HKD 20)

A self declared no fan of liver, I winced at the thought of this. Lo and behold, the foie gras quality of pig liver I say, smooth and abso buttery, I wonder how they treat it. Deliciosity maxed out. 

Once again a memorable meal at Tim Ho Wan. Affordable and hearty, I wonder if the same can be replicated when they make their move to Singapore.
