|the famous pork bbq bun at Tim Ho Wan|
Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong has long been known the world's cheapest Michelin Star Restaurant. What's the best part? It's now here in the Philippines! I was really looking forward to Tim Ho Wan. But I always get frustrated to see a long queue in front of the establishment. I don't want to wait for a ridiculous amount of time for a table. Anyway, we have been to this restaurant quite a few times now for a late lunch or snack, and luckily we were always able to grab a seat after just a few minutes of waiting.

We were all quite pleased with our order but the surprise highlight of the meal was the hot Pork BBQ Bun. I thought it was just unnecessarily hyped food. But I was wrong. It's a baked bun not steamed. The bun crispness is tender and it feels like it practically dissolves on your mouth.

For those who have no idea about Michelin star -
Tim Ho Wan in Cantonese means "Adding Good Luck". It is a great place for those craving some dim sum and pork bbq buns. Weekends are not the best time to dine here. We have observed the restaurant is a little less crowded on weekdays late in the afternoon. It is located on the ground floor at SM Mega Fashion Hall, the latest expansion of SM Megamall in Madaluyong City.
