Tim Ho Wan (添好運) @ Hong Kong Station Podium

Before visiting Hong Kong I have heard so much about their local food as well as one of their well-known dim sum restaurant; Tim Ho Wan which launched their first outlet in Singapore (Plaza Singaura) last year as well as a second branch at Tao Payoh lately. So when we happened to see their outlet at Hong Kong MTR Station (initially we intended to go to their branch at Sham Shui Po (深水埗) but it's too far out from our schedule as we only have limited time before departure), we decided to take the opportunity to try out some of their items since the queue there is definitely shorter than Singapore.

Tim Ho Wan (添好運) @ Hong Kong Station Podium Level 1
According to what I have Google Tim Ho Wan has a few outlets located in different parts of Hong Kong and the one which we visited in IFC Mall is consider one of the newly setup. Although the restaurant is fully occupied plus there were quite a number of people waiting outside for seats but the moving flow was still quite fast as we only waited for about 20 minutes before our turn.

[Tim Ho Wan (Hong Kong)] Ordering Menu
As usual on their practice when you registered for your seats,  you are given one of this ordering slip to select your choice of dim sum while waiting so that once you get your seats your food will be served in a short while. 

[Tim Ho Wan - 添好運] Hong Kong Menu
[Tim Ho Wan (Hong Kong)] Baked Bun with BBQ Pork @ HK $18 (3 pieces)
Baked Bun with BBQ Pork (HK$18; SG$2.90) is something like a fusion of crispy pineapple bun (bo luo bao - 菠蘿包) with roasted pork (char siew - 叉燒) fillings. The texture of the bun is great with crispy outer skin and yet fluffy bun texture beneath plus the BBQ pork taste great with combination of lean and fat meat coated with their special sweet and savoy sauce.

[Tim Ho Wan (Hong Kong)] Shrimp Wrapped In Beancurd Skin @ HK $24 per plate
Even thought this Shrimp Wrapped In Beancurd Skin (HK$24; SG$3.80) is a recommended item  from their menu with crispy deep-fried the outer skin but overall we find it rather oily and nothing special to be excited about. 

[Tim Ho Wan (Hong Kong)] Vermicelli Roll Stuffed With Pig's Liver @ HK $20 per plate
Vermicelli Roll Stuffed with Pig's Liver (HK$20; SG$3.20) is something rare that we don't get to eat in Singapore but after trying we don't really like the taste of the pork liver which somehow different from those in Singapore. So if to compare the differences we still prefer the one served in Tim Ho Wan, Singapore outlet.

[Tim Ho Wan (Hong Kong)] Steamed Egg Cake @ HK $14 per slice
Steamed Egg Cake (HK$14; SG$2.25) in Hong Kong outlet definitely taste better than the one in Singapore. It's texture is so fluffy and bouncy plus the caramelized fragrance makes it so addictive that you just cannot stop eating it. 

[Tim Ho Wan (Hong Kong)] Tonic Medlar and Osmanthus Cake @ HK $12 (3 pieces)
I am always curious about the taste of Osmanthus Cake which I saw from those Hong Kong drama so we decided to order this Tonic Medlar and Osmanthus Cake (HK$12; SG$1.90) for dessert. Indeed it has a sweet aroma from the Osmanthus flower and they are quite generous with the amount of medlar (gou qi zi - 枸杞子) seeds too. 

Overall our dinning experience at Tim Ho Wan, Hong Kong was quite enjoyable as we still managed to try out some authentic dim sum before flying back home. But we will definitely look forward for another trip to Hong Kong to try out more of their local food as well as other sightseeing attractions.
