Wednesday morning. 11:00 am. Waiting time: 1.5 hours.

If you think this is bad, please calm down and try not to react violently when you read the next line.

This is BEFORE the Michelin star.

Imagine the wait on weekends, lunch breaks, and after office hours. Now don’t you wish you were me and Shirley and Dora?


IMG_5468 Shrimp and chives dumplings 鮮蝦韭菜餃 – the skin is soft and thin and so delicate you gotta possess excellent chopsticks skills to deliver these babies into your mouth intact. Delicious!


IMG_5466 Kimchi and beef dumplings 泡菜牛肉餃 – brilliant idea that fails in execution. The taste is just too weird.


IMG_5464Turnip cake 臘味蘿蔔糕 – with real radish strips inside


IMG_5470 Chicken feet in black bean sauce 豉汁蒸鳳爪 – my favorite dimsum item! And Tim Ho Wan’s doesn’t disappoint. This is so mighty good it has the power to develop in all of you feet-fearing people out there an enslaving fetish for toe-sucking, I tell you.


IMG_5469 Malay sponge cake 香滑馬拉糕 – soft and springy, me likey


IMG_5472Pork and Shrimp Dumplings 鮮蝦燒賣皇 – homemade goodness


IMG_5474 Fried Pork and Vegetable Dumplings 家鄉鹹水角 – so oily but so good it’s worth the cholesterol high


IMG_5477 Vegetable spring rolls 錦繡菠菜麵春卷 – quite ordinary


IMG_5476 Rice flour rolls with shrimp  韭黃鮮蝦腸 – nothing special


IMG_5479 Rice flour rolls with pig liver 黃沙豬潤腸粉 – now this is something else. Unique and tasty.


IMG_5483 Glutinous rice with chicken in lotus leaf 古法糯米雞 – HUGE! Generous meat filling, too. A meal in itself.


IMG_5484 Baked BBQ pork buns 酥皮焗叉燒包 – there is nothing wrong with your vision. Three plates. Yes, that is how good.

AFTER the controversial Michelin star:

Thursday morning. 10:30 am. Waiting time: 2 hours.

Some repeats, some new items, but no photos this time. Sorry.

Steamed Chiu Chow dumplings 潮州蒸粉果 – soft, chewy, crisp, crunchy, the play of textures in my mouth… divine!

Beef balls with preserved orange rind 陳皮牛肉球 – not a fan

Steamed shrimp dumplings 蝦餃 – just ordinary

Pork spareribs in black bean sauce 豉汁蒸排骨 – tender

Glutinous Rice 腊味糯米飯 – not a fan

Fish sticks in olive paste 欖角蒸魚滑 – DO NOT ORDER!!! This is even weirder than the kimchi dumpling!
