When I had the chance to visit Hong Kong back in January, I knew I had to try Tim Ho Wan despite all the warnings of a 1-2 hour table wait. I took some advice from most sources and decided to be there by 9.30am. A well 30minutes before their door opens.

I have to say I was extremely lucky to get in during the 1st round! Was the last 4 that was ushered in tongue

I love their crispy BBQ pork buns! Crispy skin but tender, juicy pork inside! LOVE!

Maybe it's me but I'm not used to having my cheung fun swimming around in pure soy sauce, hence.. too salty for my liking. But the steam rice roll was awesome! Not too thick - just right to hold everything together!

one of the best siew mai! Fresh succulent prawns and just the right amount of pork mince.

I've always heard of this jelly in all sorts of TVB drama series... when I saw it on the menu I was gleaming LOL
Not too sweet and there's goji berries in it too! Not bad... but if you're looking for a smooth texture then maybe skip this as you still bite through the tiny bits of the flower and goji berries. But I like it.. smile

And this.. this is the killer of them all. Prawn dumplings / har gao.

I'm not a person who enjoys prawn dumplings. Coz I never did like the outer skin.. a little too chewy usually. But I totally fell in love with this one! I can't quite describe it but you gotta try it! If a person like me who doesn't enjoy prawn dumplings can fall in love with the ones served at Tim Ho Wan.. it can't be that bad right? haha...

Overall, be there early to be the first 20 in line I'd say. A lady came up and asked one of the waitress how long more to her wait and got a shout. Yikes! But service is generally good once you're inside. And do fill up the order prior to entering. They're just outside the front door.

Now.. If only I live in Hong Kong, I will probably end up as one of their loyal customers. hahaha
