Went back here, this time its for dinner. I guess timhowan was one of those few defaults when you havent gotten dinner and its mall closing time.

Chicken, sausages and mushrooms - growing up having chinese food everyday, this dish seems to be one of those goto rice dish for restaurants at chinatown. But of course this place serves it abit cleaner but a tad smaller. Nonetheless the traditinal taste is still there and the chicken part were the fillet ones.

Shrimp Hofan - i think this was called differently by THW, this was a staple dimsum items for alot of chinese resto. It was good especially if your hungry. Theres something different on how their shrimp were cooked. Cant explain but definitely not steamed straight out of its shell.

Baked Bun with BBQ Pork @ 145Php
Spare Ribs Rice @ 170Php
Beancurd Skin Roll with Pork & Shrimp @ 140Php

The baked bun with bbq pork is really good but I didn't enjoy it that much. The other 2 were 128078🏼128078🏼! But my friend liked their beancurd skin roll and ordered one for take out.

I gave a 10 cent tip para malaman nila na ganun yung halaga ng service nila! It's frustrating.

I am not happy after consuming my food because of the bad service. Kahit pa sobrang sarap nung baked bun.

I will visit their other branch and hopefully I will enjoy my food and leave the restaurant happy.

After a long day filled with meeting and oculars, I invited the team to have snacks at Tim Ho Wan. I needed some comforting food and I was certain that this Michelin restaurant can make me feel a whole lot better.

As we were quite full from a heavy lunch, we ordered the following to fix our snack needs:

Wasabi Prawn Dumplings
Spring Rolls with Egg White
Baked Buns with Pork BBQ

Their Wasabi Prawn Dumplings were my favorite! I loved how the wasabi gave that spicy kick to an ordinary dumpling. The prawn fillings were generously served and I liked the crispness of it.

It was my first time to try their Spring Rolls and I certainly enjoyed the crunchiness of the roll wrapper as paired so well with the fresh and delicious tasting filling with the egg white.

And as always, Tim Ho Wan's signature Pork Buns were the bomb! The smell of the buns were filling already. The comforting smell makes me crave for it even more. The softness of the buns paired with the flavorful pork will make you so addicted to it!

Yes, up until now, Tim Ho Wan never fails to surprise me! 10084

The food was ok but I think it's like a glorified Le Ching, especially with the spare ribs rice and shrimp dumpling. The pork buns and wasabi salad prawn dumpling were probably the best items we ordered. The radish cake wasn't a good choice (I like them toasted) and the tofu with pork floss didn't have much taste. The food was served fast but after that, it was hard to get anyone's attention. It was close to 2pm so the lunch crowd had pretty much thinned. I suppose it didn't help that we were in a separate room.

If you're thinking of eating here, make sure to line up early and have the whole group complete. Otherwise, they'll prioritize other groups.

This marks my first time to dine at Tim Ho Wan.  I usually order takeaway as the lines were crazy long before.  I am one of those foodies who has extremely low EQ when hungry. 

Saturday.  I decided to take Grams out.  She is a picky eater and her default cuisine is just Filipino.  She likes Chinese,  off we go to TMH.  No lines when we arrived,  we got a seat immediately.  I didn't order much as I wasn't that hungry.  We got the following:

Barbeque Pork Buns.  This is one of those items in their menu that you can't skip.  A meal at TMH aint complete without them.   These babies are divine.  Soft and milky bun with generous filings of barbeque pork. 

Chow Mien.  Not the best I've had but the taste is decent.  Perfectly cooked stir fry noodles topped seasoned with soy sauce and topped with shredded scrambled eggs.  Mongkok still has the best chow mien for me.

Congee.  This one i like. Comfort food at it's finest.  Best when drizzled with lots of pepperb,  add a lil chili paste thingy and voila!  Dragon Lady's Congee.  The serving is just right.  One bowl is enough to satiate congee cravings and i like the fact that there were generous servings of century egg. 

Service was fast and the wait staff is attentive.  I'd visit their Uptown Branch next time as it has less crowds.

First visit to THW was near to 4 stars but latest visit was a disappointment. Servings were definitely smaller and quality was sacrificed prob to maintain the price. Prawn dumpling and pork dumpling with shrimp way too overcooked. Baked bun with BBQ definitely lacked filling. Quality of service severely deteriorated.

Pork Buns!! Two words and I'm out. But seriously, the very reason I go to Tim Ho Wan is to get these three buns from heaven; with a little crisp but perfectly soft buns to those barbeque filling inside. Really tasty! The seasoning is just right and it balances everything else. Prawn dumplings are great too! Big chunks of those small shrimps in a cute fluffy steamed dumpling. Reasonably priced meals for an immediate Chinese food craving. Light meals are best spent on here too!

Disclaimer: Late review! This visit was, I think, 2 to 3 months ago! Haha!

I dunno why I never get tired of the food at Tim Ho Wan. I craved for dimsum and since we’re in Glorietta that time, we decided to eat here again. 128517 Queue was obviously more tolerable and shorter now compared to when they just opened.

We ordered our favorites – BBQ Pork Buns, Prawn Dumplings, Congee with Lean Pork, Century Egg & Salted Egg, and Pork Siomai. We also tried the Spinach Dumpling with Shrimp. Although I find their pork buns a bit sweeter than the one in Hong Kong, I still find myself craving for one once in a while. Nothing beats a freshly baked pork bun! Yummmyyy!! 128523 Their hakaw is still our all- time favorite while my sister also loves their pork siomai. I noticed my mom would order congee every time we are here. Haven't tried it but since my dad wasn't around, she had the bowl all to herself and she finished it, so I guess it was that good.

I ordered their Spinach Dumpling with Shrimp because I wanted something healthier. Haha! It was okay, had more veggies than shrimp. I’d rather have the shrimp hakaw next time. Though I found it kinda oily?

Service was quick and staff were attentive despite them having to attend to a lot of customers. Can't wait for them to open in BGC so I don't need to drive all the way to Makati for my hakaw and pork bun fix.

A well known Michelin star dimsum chain that originated at the well known food haven place known as mongkok, Tim Ho Wan further sprouts its branches locally at hongkong and eventually at Philippines. When it first open its branch at Glorietta 3 Makati, the long lines was unreal and to some degree even up to now. The best chance of getting a seat is to go there alone so that one might squeeze in with other tables that have extra available seats.

This place specialty is their Baked Buns with BBQ Pork, one must order it when visiting here or else the line is not worth it :) But that scenario was the case when i last visited here. So its the reason for the 3 stars. There are restaurants that were brought here that hit the same taste as their counterparts abroad like DTF, and there are some that kinda miss the mark, sadly this one belongs to the latter. But nonetheless, it doesn't mean that it taste bad or anything, in fact what i ordered here are okay. :) We got to understand the sourcing of ingredients and chef/cook.

1. Vermicelli Roll - This one was good, it could be better if it was serve a bit warmer. :)
2. Rice with Chicken, Sausage and Mushrooms - P170 I like the sausage used here, wish they put more slices here.
3. Pan Fried Radish Cake - P145 It was okay. Typical 3 pcs Radish cake being served at chinese restaurants. But at least this one doesnt disintegrate when picking it up with a chopstick.
4. Jasmine Tea - 60 per pot This one i mistakenly order since i thought tea here are free, since im accustomed to free house tea at chinese resto. Well, theres no free tea at HongKong.

This will be my second time after my very first THW experience months ago when it used to be trending. Though, I still believe it's worth my visit this time.

The place is still packed but there's no need to wait for hours to be seated unlike before. I believe they still serve good Dimsum after all I've heard about them being compared to Hongkong's THW version.

The Pork Bun is a must try, but I came back with hubby for the Beancurd Dumpling and Spinach Dumpling. Both costs 120 pesos for three heavenly pieces, served hot and delicious! 128525

The order will take a while to arrive but it's worth waiting. Im happy to satisfy my cravings and might be back when desire bothers me again.

CTTO for the photo.

I've been hearing a lot of good things about this resto so when we finally chanced upon Tim Ho Wan in Glorietta, I, along with office mates, didn't hesitate. We didn't even mind the long wait before we were seated.

I ordered the Vermicelli Roll with Shrimps, Fried Noodles and Wasabi Salad Prawn Dumplings. My office mates ordered a variety of stuff including their famous Baked Bun with BBQ Pork, Steamed Egg Cake and Spinach Dumplings .

Literally, we were "galit-galit" while eating. We were completely satisfied. I just got really sleepy right after. I don't know maybe they had flavor enhancers or something. But definitely going back.

Pork Bun doesn't need reviewing. Everyone knows it's good and is a must-try. The one on the back is the Vermicelli roll with pork liver and I liked it. I love liver, but others don't so it might not be for everyone. Now let me order another pork bun for take out.

CNY lunch with the family. 127888I've been craving for Tim Ho Wan for the longest time and I finally found an excuse to eat here. Since I was expecting it to be full due to the CNY holiday, we decided to have early lunch before we go malling.

We ordered the usuals plus a new item to try.

• Hakaw - I really love their hakaw! Plump, juicy shrimps encased in a thin wrapper. I can go here and just order this plus pork buns. 128523

• Pork Buns - A trip to Tim Ho Wan isn't complete without having this. I still find it a bit too sweet but I find myself craving for it once in a while. Although I noticed that it was more hollow now and had lesser filling.

• Pork Siomai - One of my favorites here, well, next to their hakaw. Meaty and tasty.

• Chow Mien - My mom insisted we get noodles cos it's New Year. They liked it, I love noodles but this was just okay for me.

• Vermicelli Rolls with Shrimp - Not a fan but this is a staple everytime we eat here. My parents like it!

• Pork Ribs Rice - My dad finished the whole serving so I think it's safe to assume that it was good and he liked it. Haha! 128541

I think i'm becoming Tim Ho Wan-ese. A little late in the appreciation game, but still appreciative. Had a shrimpfest lunch with Julie J here and i enjoyed it!

Shrimp dumplings were my fave! 128525 i like that this has flavor and doesn't taste bland.

Julie and i got each an order of vermicelli shrimp. What i like about it is the sauce. It gives the vermicelli and the shrimp more flavor. And then you can't stop stuffing your face.

Another order of shrimp and spinach dumplings was placed. Julie said it looked like it was lined with oil. I just say all the better to slide down my throat and into my belly.

The tofu skin with shrimp surprised me, i didn't expect it to be crispy. I'm glad julie liked it because i wouldn't have finished it.

The last one is the vermicelli roll with sesame seeds. This is filling and sweet. It is topped with peanut butter and sesame seeds. I wouldn't order it next time and i'd transfer it to the dessert menu!

I felt so satisfied after but Julie looks like she'll be sleeping after lunch!! Ssshhh! You'll wake her.

Finally tried it on a Fat Tuesday! Wow! Compatriots that day were Kirby G and THE Chichi T.

What's nice about the menu here is that it's so easy to order. Photos are provided and the menu sheets should be filled out on your own.

Tried those buns but it wasn't to my liking. You know what was? The DIMSUM was!!

Hakaw was ordered, a mandatory for me. The shrimp wasn't very large but i liked that the wrapper was smooth and thin. It tasted fresh!

Pork siomai was also present, the shrimp in it was also good. Steamed well and tender.

Beef ball with beancurd skin. I loved the beef ball that it was steamed through and that beancurd skin added some flavor to it.

Chalk up another one for beancurd skin because we got the one with pork and shrimp. Chichi liked this and we ordered two of em. Yeaup, good good!!!

The spring roll won't go missing in this scene, so one order was listed. I liked that the wrapper was thin and it felt light to eat. Taste isn't unique nor is it to die for but good enough to try on the first run.

Had a wasabi prawn dumpling and it tasted like. Fried version of hakaw with wasabi on top. Really not bad at all.

Chow mein noodles were on the menu and they looked good in the photo. They were tasty too, considering that i'm not a big fan of pansit.

We also found fried tofu that was like heavenly pillows. Not as heavenly as the ones in crystal jade but comes a very close second.

They also have the spicy dumplings, steamed dumplings that have chili and soy sauce. I enjoyed this too!

I can say that this dimsum craving has been SATISFIED! It felt like a shrimp fest and i loved it!! Been wanting to do a fat tuesday for quite sometime, glad this year happened!
