My dinner mate has kept telling me the last time she came here, the queue had closed when it was just 8 plus pm. Tim Ho Wan is the hole-in-the-wall eatery in Hong Kong that defied all odds to gain an entry in the Michelin guide. Since the queue is still and we both are free, let’s queue up. Although it looks long, but it moves quite fast. I think it takes me about 30 minutes to get a table.
While queuing, we are given the list to select the food.
The dinning area is quite small and compact.
Sauces available on the table for you to help yourself to.
Barley Water ($2.00++)
It tastes not bad and not too sweet.
Steam Egg Cake ($3.80++)
It is very soft, not too sweet. Light and spongy and kind of reminds me of Gula Melaka, although I wish for a stronger taste of it. We like it so much that my dinning mate orders another 2 more so than she can pack it. Please note there is no takeaway service available. Boxes will be given to you upon request, if you wish to pack the leftover.
Baked Bun with BBQ Pork ($4.50++)
Order 2 of this as it is limited to 1 per person.
Quite thin skin.
Pan Fried Turnip Cake ($4.50++)
I feel that it is too soft.
Vermicelli Roll with Pig’s Liver ($5.50++)
This is the most disappointing dish of all. The liver is overcooked and hard. The vermicelli roll has a velvety texture.
Tonic Medlar & Osmanthus Cake ($3.50++)
This is a very unique dessert. It tastes of Osmanthus flowers with a jelly like texture.
Total damages : $44.61
