This review is for Tim Ho Wan at 2-8 Wharf Road, North Point.
Recommended by two locals, we decided to try this restaurant. My cousin, who is born and raised in HK said she doesn't understand the hype and I have to agree with her.
Keep in mind the Michelin star restaurant is only granted to the location in Mong Kok.
This restaurant is a one dish wonder. The BBQ pork bun is the only dish I deem worthy of trying this restaurant. Definitely not worth wasting my afternoon to try this in the 3 days of my trip! The BBQ pork bun had a crispy exterior liked a fried pineapple bun and very hot and tasty centre. This would be a great addition to a HK style cafe serving hot milk tea!!
The second runner up dish was the glutinous rice wrap, only because is larger than life. The taste is average, the rice was quite chewy. Also, nothing "gu fat" or traditional about it. It's missing the bits of fatty pork inside, which is why it lacks flavour. Also ordered, the har gau, siu Mai, chiu chow dumpling, cheung fan, home made cuttle fish balls, turnip cakes, etc etc. I think with 4 people we ordered 13 dishes and came to 300HKD. Cheap, but nothing memorable. The dumpling skin was soft and falling apart. The chiu chow dumpling had 95% celery, turnip, cilantro and peanuts, not enough minced meat. The cheong fan that I find is so thin and smooth in HK was thick and soaked in very sweet soya sauce. As if the flavours from the food itself wasn't good enough.
They also keep getting the orders mixed up with the table beside us.
Not recommended! Won't go back; not my definition of Michelin starred restaurants.
