Time for a quick Burp Guide post!
Today, I thought of sharing our first Tim Ho Wan experience. It's been 7 months since their opening day here in Manila, and we had been so curious to try their famous Baked Bun with BBQ Pork.
I love their menu, simple yet organized. Plus, there's a photo of each dish, so that's very helpful for those who are not familiar with dim sum.
The waitress handed us a sheet of paper where orders should be written down.
Their Hakaw (prawn dumpling) did not "wow" us that much (#seewhatIdidthere), but we still loved it because of the size and plump meat inside.
It's perfectly cooked and the thickness of the wrapper was just right.
Their Beancurd Skin Roll with Pork & Shrimp tasted very similar to what I've tried in other Chinese restaurants. The sauce was not too sweet and the wrapper was a teeny bit chewy, which I loved.
It's not super stuffed as we expected, but that's fine.
sorry for the blurred photo
Next, everyone's favorite, Baked Bun with BBQ Pork.
I can see the resemblance with a regular toasted siopao, which by the way also my fave.
145 php 3 pcs.
The bun was super soft and there's like melt-in-your-mouth goodness in every bite. The filling was mouthwatering as well, but still very close to typical "asado". The sweetness was just right and the overall taste made us crave for more. And yes, I took home another box. HAHA!
I also recommend this rice bowl dish called Pork Rib with Black Bean Sauce. It may not look very appetizing, but we got crazy over their special sauce.
Lastly, Pork Dumpling with Shrimp (siomai). Yes, it's meaty but other than that, there's nothing mind-blowing about it.
One of the staff said that even for take-outs, customers should still fall in line and wait for their turn. If I'm not mistaken, it's something about the service charge? I'm not 100% sure.
