Tim Ho Wan has been in the local foodie scene for a while now, and yet, it’s only recently that we got to try it out as every time we pass it by, the queues are too long and we would end up going someplace else entirely. One day as we passed by we saw that there were no lines and thus, we finally got to eat here, haha. 😀
We got their Baked Bun with BBQ Pork, which is one of the dishes that is included on the ‘4 Heavenly Kings’ part on their menu. This is a ‘must-order’ in Tim Ho Wan, and, if I’m not mistaken this is the dish that made Tim Ho Wan famous in the first place! For me, the pork buns were just alright, and I did find it to be a bit on the sweet side. I wish that the buns could have been flakier though.
We also had their Steamed Egg Cake. Didn’t try this, but I think it must taste similar to bread haha.
Vermicelli Roll with Shrimp. This was quite good, although since I don’t eat shrimp, I did have to remove it.
Pork dumpling with shrimp, or, I guess, siomai! Aaah, fave dish out of them all. Again, I had to remove the shrimp, but that didn’t diminish the whole yummy-ness that this dish has going on! 😀
Service is fast – the waiting time for the food to be served is very short too. Their Robinson’s Ermita branch is quite big.
Tim Ho Wan is located at Ground Floor, Robinson’s Place Manila, Ermita, Manila
