Michelin Starred Dim Sum in Hong Kong: Tim Ho Wan

This is perhaps the World's cheapest Michelin Star Restaurant, Tim Ho Wan. Michelin ratings ranges from 1-3 in the world and they are usually very very expensive! At Tim Ho Wan, most of it dim sum are below HKD 20 

Tim Ho Wan, which actually translates to "Add Good Luck"
There have 2 outlets in Mong Kok and Sham Shui Po, and their latest branch in Hong Kong Station. It usually takes about a 2hr wait before you get seated, but lucky me went to the one at Sham Shui Po and there wasn't any queue!

Displaying their featured dishes...

Signature Baked Bun with BBQ Pork- "Char Siew Pao"

Check out the filling! 

This has got to be 1 of my favourite dishes, I ordered 2 sets of this!!! Unlike the usual steamed Char Siew Pao, Tim Ho Wan's version is the combination of Po Luo Pao and BBQ pork pastry. With a little bit of sweetness on the bun and chewy fillings, this has got to be the best out of the entire range. 

Glutinous Rice 

Similar to "Zong Zi", sticky rice stuffed with mushrooms, chicken and sausages is steamed in lotus leaf. A killer for the stomach as it is very filling!

Steamed Rice Roll - "Char Siew Cheong Fun"

Cheong Fun usually comes in 3 different fillings, prawns/scallop/char siew. I ordered the Char Siew fillings. The smooth silky rice roll with the sauce is definitely something!

Steamed Prawn Dumpling- "Har Gow"
Big juicy prawns wrapped in very thin skin. Definitely worth the money at HKD 20 per plate!

"Siew Mai"

Similar to Har Gow, Siew Mai is a mixture of minced meat and prawns. A common item that is ordered at a dim sum restaurant!

As the saying goes, you can never leave Hong Kong without tasting their Dim Sum. Cheap and quality food? Tim Ho Wan is the place. Intern with ODM and you can will get to eat Dim Sum Breakfast every weekend :D
