I know, I know. I’m slow. I’m just not the type to go queue for food cause I really hate to wait. Luckily Tim Ho Wan opened a few outlets in SG and we don’t have to queue for hours to try out their one-michelin star quality dimsum at Plaza Sing.
Is it worth the hype? Keep scrolling.
The famous baked bun with bbq pork. Gotta admit, this was pretty good. The crust was crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. The char siew was really flavorful and not at all too sweet. When put together, it’s like a match made in heaven.. *slurps*
One of their famous dishes is definitely the steamed egg cake. And I can see why. It’s so very soft and fluffy, like a marshmallow. But way more delicious. I could eat this over and over and not get sick of it.
Prawn chee cheong fun. Yet another very normal dish. Tasted like the one I had in Chong Pang market. We also tried the char siew & pork liver chee cheong fun – all of them wasn’t good enough for me to go ‘wow’.
Overall, it wasn’t too bad a dining experience but I feel that the long queues are overrated. The food is not bad, but it’s not good enough to make me queue for an hour for it. I’ve tried equally good or better ones at half the price.
Each dish was about $5 – $6-ish and our total bill came up to about $130 for 5 pax, which wasn’t too expensive considering how much food we ordered.
I suggest trying out the new outlets at Bedok / Toa Payoh which is less crowded than the one at PS / Westgate if you’re interested in trying them out.
