Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf
Php 190
It reminds me of the hearty Arroz Valenciana of Iloilo. Love it.

Celebrated Grandparent's day by having lunch at Tim Ho Wan and it didn't disappoint. My mom enjoyed the yummy dishes. We had beancurd, wasabi shrimp dumpling, spinach with shrimp dumpling, vermicelli roll with sweet and sesame sauce, wanton noodle soup, beef brisket noodle soup and their best tasting pork buns.

Same as the other branches in terms of food quality but i tend to like the environment here. Ordered the usual pork buns and sparerib rice and it is still good.

This branch is open until 3am! We went there at around 1030pm and the usual long waiting line is nowhere to be seen! I was craving for a hot soup and the beef noodle soup did not disappoint. Hakaw and siomai were awesome as always. Pork buns are not to be missed when in Tim Ho Wan!

Too good !
All succulent, fresh, hot , and flavorful and tender !
This branch is much better than Megamall's . We will surely be back here often as the waiting time is reasonable, 15 minutes since we arrived at 12 noon sharp.

I was only able to take one photo because we were really hungry. Suprisingly, there was no line at dinner time. We got seated agad-agad and we got our congees in less than 3 minutes. The rest came in less than 10 minutes!

The pork buns have always been my favorite. (I think almost twice a week ako nagtatake-out ng pork buns. Buti na lang sa baba lang ng office namin 'to. Medyo hindi ko lang gets why they have to charge 5% na service charge for take-out orders.) The pork buns plus the fast service are the only two reasons why this is a 4-star review. The rest that we ordered were okay. Congee's serving was a little small I think. It was surprising how we spent 400plus each for a group of 4 people yet I think we ate a little. Anyway, still going back for the pork buns! 10084

Still hoping to try their night menu which unfortunately starts at 10PM. On overtime or gimik nights probably? Haha.

On our way home,  i asked CMA for a quickie stopover at Uptown.  It's only been a day and i missed ze pork buns,  i had to buy some quick.

Got 12 pieces.  6 for Grams and 6 for CMA's folks.  I figured they would love these babies.  I mean,  who doesn't love them....right?

The Uptown branch is a lil bigger compared to the Glorietta branch.  Common denominator - all branches are always packed.  The sheer number of customers is a testament of how good their food is. 

One thing is for sure,  i will never get tired of ze pork buns.

I tried their Uptown branch. It packed during lunch time, but no line. The service isn't as quick as the one in Megamall. Everything is still good, especially the pork buns and the spicy dumplings.

Their pork spring rolls taste like coriander rolls. Lol. Eww.

I still remember the crazy long lines of Tim Ho Wan when it opened its first branch in Manila way back 2014. Fast forward to 2016 with 5 branches, this pork bun heaven has not lost its charm. How could they if they keep on cooking up reasons to make us salivate for more?

Hello, Tim Ho Wan!

This well-loved one-star Michelin restaurant opened its newest branch in Uptown Mall Bonifacio and it has some new offerings exclusive for its supper menu available from 10 pm to 3 am. Yes, you read that right, until 3 am. This place is an answered prayer for those with sudden odd hour cravings!

Tim Ho Wan BGC is still exploring the possibility of doing 24/7 run; but for now, here are some BGC exclusive dishes you could sample during your midnight run: Sliced Imported Abalone Congee with Chicken and Mushroom (PHP350, 1 pc abalone | PHP500, 2 pcs abalone), Beef Brisket and Tendon Noodles (PHP200), Pork and Vegetable Wonton Noodles (PHP220) and Garlic Fried Fish Skin (PHP190). We also ordered the staples Baked BBQ Pork Buns (PHP145, 3 pcs), Prawn Dumplings (PHP160, 4 pcs), Dumpling with Spicy Sauce (PHP150, 4 pcs), Steamed Spinach Dumpling with Shrimp (PHP120) and Mango Pomelo Sago (PHP120). We also got Iced Tea and Cold Barley Tea (PHP50 each) as drinks.

First served were the delectable baked BBQ pork buns. The flakey bun with the sweet and tender pork filling sure brought out those pearly whites as it tickled our taste buds.

The dumplings were served right after.

The piping hot spinach dumpling made me feel so healthy given the fact that I was munching on veggies. The slight bite of the spinach and shrimps created a nice contrast from the wonton wrapper. It was delicious. If healthy tastes like this, I wouldn't mind having my greens all day long!

Same was true with the prawn dumplings. It was also bang for the buck as Tim Ho Wan does not scrimp on prawns! Each dumpling was packed! Definitely no wonton-wrapper-with meager-filling dumplings here!

I found a new favorite in dumpling with spicy sauce. (Side story: I usually lose interest when I read the word spicy but R insisted we order one. And I was so glad we did!)

Fret not if you have low tolerance to spicy food as this dish is very mild in the hot department. As a food enthusiast who has near zero tolerance to anything spicy, I managed to eat one dumpling without needing to grab my glass of cold barley (which was so refreshing, I ordered two). It's because the other flavors seemed to take lead roles too in creating this scrumptious dish. Each bite would give you an ooze of sweetness and tanginess on top of the mild hotness of the spiced sauce.

The bowl dishes were up next and all looked mouthwatering!

I first had a spoonful of the abalone congee and it hit the spot! I was craving for congee for weeks now and having a warm bowl of congee topped with abalone was a treat! I loved it! The abalone was definitely a nice touch and added texture to the dish. There was also a generous serving of chicken and mushroom bits making this bowl filling. (Tip: Make sure you put the other congee toppings for extra flavor and texture.)

The beef brisket and tendon noodles was one of my favorites from this set. The brisket was so soft and flavorful. Each bite of the succulent meat brought joy to my palate. The broth was equally flavorful and its sweet and salty taste was balanced by the soft noodles.

I also enjoyed the Pork and Vegetable Wonton Noodles. Unlike beef brisket and tendon noodles, this one had a lighter broth flavor perfect for those who are not fond of rich tastes.

The garlic fried fish skin was also great and perfect with some booze. But it is also perfect with... congee! It added crunch to the dish and its salty and slightly spiced taste added character to the bowl.

Last served was the pomelo mango sago and it was as refreshing as I could remember. I loved the combination of the sweet taste of mango bits and slight tanginess of the pomelo.

Overall, it was a great meal and I would love to head back for more!

P.S. I had a chat with Tim Ho Wan's General Manager Cherry Lo and she said that they are opening new branches soon! One will be in Mall of Asia (hopefully by end of July and they have special dishes exclusive to MOA too) and another one in SM Seaside Cebu!

Finally, a Tim Ho Wan in BGC!!! Haha. Eric Dee's told me about this during the Pound Rendezvoos last Feb, which is supposed to be their first 24/7, so I was pleasantly surprised to walk to Uptown and then see it's finally open. I dined in, and checked with the staff when they opened, which was June 25th, or about a week and a half ago.

While THW's lost some of its luster owing to their opening of several branches all over MM, the many legit Chinese restos all over MM, plus the opening of Din Tai Fung next door to its very 1st branch in Megamall, bottom line, it's still a pretty darned good resto. Tim Ho Wan, originally from HK, features awesome Chinese tea house style food, with its very popular and fairly unparalleled BBQ Pork Buns as the main differentiator vs. most of the Chinese restaurants.

On this rainy night, in hindsight, I should have gone with the congee, but I hadn't tried it yet, and wanted to eat something I liked, so I went with the Chow Mein style stir fried noodles, P130. Dry noodles, flavorful with strips of pork, egg and veggies, oily but I like it a lot. Only tried this during my last visit to Megamall's THW and it was such a hit with me and my wife's family. So I ordered that along with their steamed shrimp dumpling (hakaw, P160), perfect combination. Both were very good. 4.5/5.

And any visit to Tim Ho Wan wouldn't be complete without ordering their Barbecue Pork Buns! P145 for 3 pieces (don't forget that 1 order is 3 pieces already, a possible miscomm between an uninitiated customer and THW that can arise, which I'd actually seen already), crusty slightly sweet bread with sweet asado like bbq pork inside. The crust hit the spot tonight, but the inside lacked the sweet savory blend of the bbq pork that I'm used to with their pork buns. Hmmmm, just a 3.5/5 for me today. Hope this was a fluke! It lacked the sweetness.

The interior is consistent with all other Tim Ho Wan branches, well lit, typical clean wooden furniture, though this was surprisingly smaller than Megamall or Glorietta. For the unfamiliar, fill up the order slip on each table, using the menu on the paper table setting as visual guide for the dishes and the price. Staff was superior in service as usual. Great job, Tim Ho Wan management, and owners.

Other orders of note for future reference of the unfamiliar, fried prawn dumpling with wasabi mayo, fried beancurd shrimp roll, beancurd roll, radish cake, pork spareribs on rice, siomai, are all pretty good choices, aside from my orders tonight. Also the mango and pomelo sago for dessert. Be careful with ordering because while they look affordable on paper, when you're in a group setting, you can go overboard with the orders and the P200 to P500 a head can go out of hand! 128518

This branch is not yet 24/7, or maybe it might not ever come to fruition, but it does open 11am and closes veeeerrrrry late at 3am right now, so enjoy it, late night people! Perfect for those coming from Brewery, Palace Pool, Valkyrie, etc, nearby. Then again, 3am might not be their time to leave their drinking and partying yet. I'm of the Titas of Manila generation. Hahaha. 128516 #TitosNaman
