My hols are drawing to an end & it looks like I won't be able to complete my HK posts before the end of hols so I'll play by ear and see what happens. Anyway, today's blogpost will be about the famous Tim Ho Wan one-star Michelin restaurant. It is reputed to be the world's most afforadable one-star Michelin restaurant because you can get a meal below $20! And they're NOT kidding! (:
clear sweet soup with white fungus and dates. I actually liked it a lot because they were not stingy with their ingredients! The sweet soup didn't taste like syrup and actually tasted pretty full-bodied (:
THE famous osmanthus jelly (: It is by far the most flavourful jelly of this type that I've eaten in my life! No wonder my colleague's daughter loves it! Thanks for the recommendation, EM! (:
a plate of fried noodles, which was not too oily and nice to eat (: The portion size is just right for two people!
Chicken feet, which I skipped. Apparently it's good too (:
steamed vegetables with garlic prawns dumplings! (: I think the garlic bits made it taste different in a good way. I would definitely have this again!
ma lai gao (which I guess translates into steamed sponge cake?). I could distinctly taste egg in it! I think HK cooking involves a lot of egg and milk and it's difficult not to taste these ingredients when we eat! Lovely lovely dish which I would love to have again.
I am very pleased that we managed to check off Tim Ho Wan on our "to eat" list because it was one of the few places that I was looking forward to visiting! The food lived up to my expectations and I would recommend this to all who are going to visit HK (:
Alright that's all for now (: Have a great sunny and cheery weekend! (:
