It was one of those days that I was craving for some Chinese food. Even if it’s not peak hours it was still packed with customers. Good thing there were no lines yet so we were seated right away. Majority of the tables were filled. Their service was slower which was understandable.

I was specifically craving for Pork Rib rice. But they had new dishes on their menu, so I opted to try it out. Ordered Steamed Minced Pork with Dried Squid rice (Php 170) and I don’t understand the taste. I wasn’t able to figure out where the dried squid flavor went. Then for the pork minced it tasted like Chinese beef patty. I regretted my order but silver lining I know what not to get on my next visit. 128517

For our additional orders:
Prawn Dumpling (Php 160) steamed dumplings with fresh huge prawn chunks. A bit pricey but it was still good.
Wasabi Salad Prawn Dumpling (Php 140) Our first time also to try this dish out. It was surprisingly good and the wasabi sauce gave it the right kick.

I will go back for pork buns haven’t had those for a year now! 128514

Tim Ho Wan is a Michelin Star Hole in the wall eatery in Hongkong, famous for baked pork buns.

I've been here before and again last September 16 I'm back and this time with my whole family for a late lunch . It's my kids first time here including mom Elaine P. Loved their famous pork buns here and I want kids to taste it and mom.

We ordered the following :

128204 baked bun with BBQ pork- (3pcs) 145 pesos
128204 prAwn dumpling - 160 pesos
128204 rice with beef and fried egg - 180
128204 spareribs rice- almost same price with rice with beef and egg.

Service was really fast and loved their food ! 128077

Located at G/F SM Mega Fashion Hall. Open from 10am to 10pm. They have other branches also in Glorietta , North Edsa, Robinsons Place Manila, UP Town BGC, and Mall of Asia.

Tim Ho Wan is my go-to restaurant when i am craving for something filling, affordable and delicious.

Spareribs Rice. This is the first time i tried this dish (i usually get the chicken mushroom rice). I am loving the special sauce they use as it adds more flavor on the rice.

BBQ Pork Bun. Hmm-mmm. This is heaven on each bite. Soft x pillowy bun filled with sumptuous barbeque pork.

Shrimp Dumpling. The best hakao I've had in a while. I love the fact that the shrimp is not overcooked as i taste the natural sweetness. The dumpling wrapper is firm and doesn't stick to the plate.

Till my next visit Tim 128512

Tim Ho Wan is really known for their pork buns - that's why I usually don't go into Tim Ho Wan for a full meal. But the girls I was with for lunch wanted Tim Ho Wan and they were huge fans!

Pork Buns
These really are quite good! The sweet crispy bun is quite different from your usual siopao so it's a treat.

Fried Tofu with Pork Floss 10084
New discovery! I la-la-love this! I'm not a huge tofu fan but when cooked right, I can eat 'em all day! And this... this hit the spot!

Pork Spareribs Rice
Do not underestimate the small looking container. That container holds a lot of rice. If you're like me - who doesn't eat a lot of rice anymore - then this would be good to share. Especially if you have tons of other side dishes to spare.

We got other dishes too, like the seasonal veggies with soy sauce, the shrimp hofan and the beef with egg rice bowl bug I didn't get to try the other rice bowl.

Who says the craze has died down?! This place is still jam packed and there are still lines outside. We even had to line up. We went about 7 pm. Which was still a bit early for dinner time. By the time it got to 730 pm the line got much longer.

We had a 5 min wait before we were seated, which wasn't so bad. We ordered the usual pork buns, vermicielli pork, spinach dumplings, vegetables with oyster sauce and beef with egg with rice.

It didnt take long before our orders came. Yup. The food was super good. 128076🏻 the prices here are reasonable as well.

Service was okay. Took a bit too long to process our bill though. It's alright....

Liked their beancurd skin with shrimp the best.

Also enjoyed the shrimp with wasabi and the tofu with pork floss.

There was no need to wait before we were seated.

Finally tried this place, now that I won't have to queue to eat here.

Service was a bit slow,'considering that there were only a few diners when I went there.

In any case, I super loved the Beancurd Skin Roll with Shrimp. It was so good! We also enjoyed the beancurd roll and the pork rib with black bean sauce.

The steamed minced pork with dried squid, however was a wrong choice. It looked nothing like the photo, it tasted bland, and I'd never order it again.

Overall, I do get now why people like it here though. I will definitely be back to try their other items!

Consistently good Pork Buns. Service is topnotch from when you enter, taking your order, water refills, to getting the bill. Precise, systematic.

Food is also delicious, nothing has changed since they opened here in Megamall a couple of years ago. You've probably have tried it so their is nothing more to say. If your hackering for good pork buns... there is a Tim Ho Wan branch near you. Senior cards honored. Recommended.

I went back after xx months, the baked bun is still the best at PhP145/3 pieces. I couldn't say the same thing on the stir fry noodles. Plus service was slow.

Had a hankering for some Tim Ho Wan since last night and I don't know why. Chose between their Megamall and SM North Edsa branches, and I chose the latter because there's a weekend sale there and those are fun. Got early before the after-office crowd and got seated immediately. I got the steamed rice with chicken, sausage and mushroom, some pork shrimp dumplings and some vermicelli rice rolls with pig's liver. The chicken, sausage rice has a special sauce poured on it while it's piping hot, and when you mix the rice thoroughly with this sauce you get a really good flavor. I don't normally finish my rice serving but I finished this one with gusto. P.S. no photos of dumplings and rolls. Forgot.

My 3rd visit

Congee was okey, serving portion is just for one person. I find the pork bun a little bit sweet compared to DTF. Still has very limited choices on the menu. Would waif for some changes before i would come back.

Tim Ho Wan's first branch here in the Philippines. During its opening week/month, I remember throngs of people trying to line up for the Michelin star Dumpling restaurant of HongKong. That queue is not evident anymore (well maybe during my visit) must be because of the other branches which has opened in other malls. The restaurant has a big seating capacity (both inside and outside). I haven't managed to sit inside still since the place was packed even during merienda time.

The menu was a condensed version of the HK menu. I think they only included their best sellers in their Philippine menu and selected what would sell to the Filipino market. Among the famous Tim Ho Wan specialties are the Baked Pork Buns, Pork and Shrimp Siomai and the Prawn Dumplings.

Yesterday, I ordered the Prawn Dumplings or the Hakaw, 4 dumplings filled with balls of shrimp served in a bamboo steamer. My food took some time to arrive but gladly it was still hot. The dumpling wrapper was a bit thick though and the prawns were just ok. A bit big but not that tasty compared to how their HK branch served it. As for the price (Php 160), for me it was cheaper compared to other food that can be ordered inside a mall. However, if you compare it to a Binondo dumpling restaurant or a food court stall serving the same dish it was a little bit overpriced. But since this is Michelin star quality, I think it was just okay.

Overall, I still like this restaurant and would come back again given the chance. I just hope that they maintain the quality in terms of food and service of the Tim Ho Wan restaurant same with the HK branch.

I really like their Spareribs Rice, Congee with Century Egg & Salted Egg, Vermicelli Roll with Shrimps!

Only comment on the spareribs rice is that it has so many bone fragments and the ratio of meat vs bone & cartilage is 1:2, meaning not enough meat 🤔.

Food is consistent even with their other branches.128077🏻

We never get tired of Tim Ho Wan, one of the most consistent restaurants in the Metro. It never fails to disappoint, and their food and service are always on point. For lunch today we ordered their signature baked buns, vermicelli roll with pork, fried noodles, beef ball with bean curd skin and their current special, this mushroom and chicken soup. A satisfying meal on a rainy afternoon.
