Tim Ho Wan: Michelin-Starred Dim Sum Restaurant

Tim Ho Wan known as the most affordable Michelin-starred dim sum restaurant offers precision and consistency in terms of taste, quality, and value. Their dim sum dishes are handmade-to-order, and not pre-steamed and reheated to retain its intended flavor and texture.

Last March 25, 2017, Tim Ho Wan opened its doors at SM Seaside City Cebu. And we had the chance to be part of the media preview before the official opening of the restaurant. With that, we are privilege enough to individually savor and evaluate Tim Ho Wan’s four heavenly kings. The four heavenly kings are the stars in Tim Ho Wan’s menu which diners would really line for.

The Four Heavenly Kings of Tim Ho Wan

Baked Bun

Baked Bun with BBQ Pork. In simpler terms, this is our local meat roll but a high-class type of meat roll. It is best eaten when it is still hot and fresh from the oven. The bun is definitely soft and similar to a streusel bun’s softness. The pork barbecue filling gives a playful yet balanced sweet and salty flavors.

Steam Egg Cake

Steamed Egg Cake. It is not just a simple chiffon-looking cake. Its light and spongy texture makes the cake melt on your tongue leaving a caramelized taste. A serving of this cake can totally make you full.

Beancurd Skin

Beancurd Skin with Pork and Shrimp. This dim sum goodness is a favorite. The flavors are so rich and somehow creates a contrasting play of the taste of the sauce, beancurd skin, pork, and shrimp.

Radish Cake

Pan Fried Radish Cake. This might be our least favorite. Its light flavor is very enticing to the tongue yet the burnt part of the cake somehow gives a weird taste which is really really off.
