Tim Ho Wan 添好運點心專門店 is a 1 Michelin Star Restaurant headed by Mak Pui Gor, the former dim sum chef at Hong Kong’s Four Seasons Hotel’s restaurant, Lung King Heen. We visited the Tim Ho Wan branch at IFC in Central as it was more convenient for us since we are changing trains to Citigate Outlets (東薈城) at Tung Chung station.

Tim Ho Wan at IFC is actually located in Hong Kong Station. It’s not hard to find the place as there are numerous signs showing the way.

The place was packed with a long queue forming outside. We waited for about 30 minutes before we were seated on a long table.

There are a variety of dim sum items on the menu from steamed to baked, pan-fried and deep-fried. Dim Sum in Cantonese means “touch your heart”. With so many choices, it’s really hard not to love Dim Sum.

BBQ pork bun 酥皮焗叉燒包 is a must-order at Tim Ho Wan. The BBQ pork buns here are different from your typical char siu bao, but similar to bo lo yau (菠蘿油) filled with pork And sweet sauce. The bun is light and airy while the crust is really crispy. Super delicious!!!

Though the Siu Mai 烧卖 at Tim Ho Wan is filled with big and juicy shrimps, I still find the Siu Mai in Malaysia taste better.

This Teochew style dumpling is like a mini version of Soon Kueh. The transparent and chewy skin is wrapped with peanuts, turnips and celery.

Wrapped with lotus leaf, the portion of this glutinous rice dumpling is really huge. The lotus leaf gives a wonderful fragrant flavor to the rice. Inside, it’s filled with lots of ingredients like pork, chicken, shiitake mushrooms, dried shrimps, salted egg and Chinese sausage.

Verdict: Food is hot and fresh. The BBQ Pork Bun is a must order here, it’s the best I’ve ever had. Prices are reasonable and service is fast. Be sure to go there early to avoid long queues. Some might think that since there’s Tim Ho Wan in Singapore, there’s no need to travel to Hong Kong anymore but eating Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong gives a different dining experience, what more Tim Ho Wan originate from Hong Kong.

After our scrumptious breakfast at Tim Ho Wan, we board the train to Citigate Outlets at Tung Chung Station for shopping. We spent close to 4 hours there, covering the whole mall.

Citigate Outlets at Tung Chung Station : There are many international brands outlet store including Nike, Guess, Puma, Adidas, Crocs, Roxy, Calvin Klein, club 21, Polo Ralph Lauren, Burberry, Kate Spade, Coach, Armani Exchange and many more.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
