Hong Kong Must Eat #1 - Tim Ho Wan, the Dim-Sum Specialists 添好运点心

Dim Sum is a food that you shouldn't miss when you go to Hong Kong! Although I'm not a big fan of pork but I know I have to try. Tim Ho Wan, the Dim-Sum Specialists 添好运点心 is a well-known Dim Sum shop in which they're almost at the top list in open rice. They have plenty of branches too, we went to the one located in Mong Kok. 

We were again, having hard time finding this restaurant! My bf and I had some shopping at Ladies' Market, then slowly we walk to Kwang Wah Street in Mong Kok, with the help of map and GPS on my phone! *getting really confused again, especially after a long tiring and playful day at Ocean Park! So sorry I skip the Ocean Park part as I get shocked with so many photos and videos taken, give me some more time okay??* 


Alright back to the topic, we finally found it! This big-name Dim Sum shop! And, we have to queue again! Arghh! Really?!? We have to queue in every restaurant we wanna dine in? Luckily it was night time at around 830pm, the queue wasn't that bad. Phew~ Thank God! Still, we have to wait like, about 10 mins. So we were waiting outside thinking what we have to eat (they'll give you a menu for order before you enter the shop, efficient I would say).


Then finally, a table for two for us! But the shop is REALLY SMALL and PACKED!

This guy showing "WHY SO CROWDED" face. I asked him to act one actually LOLLL....

Hot Chinese Tea is refillable at the price of HKD 2/cup.

古法糯米鸡 HKD 24

I think must order this one, to really fill our stomach's like our 荷叶饭.

 晶莹鲜虾饺 HKD 24

This is quite nice, the skin of the 虾饺 is just right, not too hard or too soft, and the shrimp (middle size) is fresh too. 

潮州蒸粉果 HKD 11

This one, I LOVE THE MOST!!! The filling with vegetables, nuts nommmm nommmmm......

酥皮叉烧包 HKD 17

Haha! This one? Special look right? It's one of their special dish. My bf said horrrr...."you know, mexican bun with sweet pork". Hmmm....kinda true la hahaha!  

煎腊味萝卜糕 HKD 14

Not bad lah this one, I kinda like it. Soft and the taste is just right for me, bf don't really like this maybe cause of he doesn't like 腊味.

杞子桂花糕 HKD 12

This is the one I expect the most. Since I was young I always heard of this 桂花糕 in dramas. I have my own imagination to this dish though, but turn out, 1 word = TOO SWEETTTT! 

南瓜西米露 HKD 15

This quite good, but I thought 西米露 is ice dessert? No? Cultural difference? 

Overall I think really not bad la but kinda pricey....spent 121HKD for 2 person for Dim Sum T_T.

Must Try:
1. 潮州蒸粉果 
2. 酥皮叉烧包
3. 煎腊味萝卜糕 
4. 南瓜西米露
