NEW RESTO ALERT: Tim Ho Wan

So it took me two months before I was able to dine at Tim Ho Wan in SM Megamall after it opened last May 2014. Also, I wasn't able to try this dimsum restaurant when I went to Hong Kong last year. Tim Ho Wan became a sought-after dimsum restaurant especially after it was given a Michelin Star, thus becoming one of the cheapest restaurant's with a Michelin Star.



The original branch of Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong is a few steps away from City Garden Hotel although there's a bigger branch at the IFC Mall in Central. So imagine my happiness when I spotted the Tim Ho Wan sign at the Mega Fashion Hall (btw, there's another one opening soon in Glorietta). Alas, I was away on a trip when it opened and afterwards, I've been hearing about the longish lines at Tim Ho Wan.



Pork Buns. This is the famous pork buns that almost everyone is willing to fall in line and wait for about 1-2 hours. Luckily, we only waited for about 5 minutes to be seated when we went there. Yey! Lovely, lovely buns.


The meat inside is flavorful and I can't detect any fat (thumbs up) but the winning factor here is the bun itself. It is similar to Hokkaido bread. It is sweet and soft although it tends to be crumbly. I prefer soft bread myself except the crumbly part. It is also baked so its healthy.


Wasabi Dumplings. I was going to wax poetry about the pork buns but these Wasabi Dumplings made me happy than the former. The skin is very crunchy, the wasabi dressing tasted just right. I'd love to go back to Tim Ho Wan and eat this again. ;)



My first dining experience with a Michelin Star restaurant is at Yue Restaurant at the City Garden Hotel in Hong Kong.


*** Michelin Stars are awarded by a French Company to establishments (hotels and restaurants), around the world. The Michelin Guide is an annual publication with list of new and old establishments with Michelin Stars. But did you know that an establishment can also lose its Michelin Star due to its strict requirements?

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.


Max's Beef Salpicao and Adobo Ribs

Max's, one of the country's beloved restaurant doesn't just serve that "sarap" to the bones fried chicken but has a whole range of yummy Pinoy favorites on the menu such as kare-kare, sinigang na hipon, sizzling tofu, and others. But of course, every one is always excited when there's something new on the menu and Max's has two new dishes- Adobo Ribs and Beef Salpicao.
