My Michelin Bun | 遇上米其林一颗星叉烧包

它,要你痴痴等待。

It’s definitely worth the wait.

Pretty intrigued when my friend asked if I wanted to try out a dim sum place which was rated one Michelin star for dinner?

We were denied entry at the door of Tim Ho Wan (as the eatery was running on a full house), this really stirred up my curiosity.

Michelin awards 0-3 stars on the basis of anonymous inspections by reviewers. The reviewers are supposed to concentrate on the quality, mastery of technique, personality and consistency of the food, not on interior décor, table setting, or service quality.

So apparently, the freshly prepared dim sum and an extraordinary char siew pau (minced pork bun) earned Tim Ho Wan their star!

So what’s so great about this char siew pau that cost HKD 12 (approx SGD 2.50)?

当香港朋友问我想不想尝“米其林”点心时,我一头污水,会很贵吗?还是排场很高级?

来到店前,我还真的非常好奇。

米其林一颗星(1-star Michelin)”添好運”(Tim Ho Wan)的叉烧包,有“平民化”定级美食的美誉(HKD12),吃起来是什么味道呢?

(p.s. 一颗星★:是“值得”去造访的餐厅,是同类饮食风格中特别优秀的餐厅)

小小叉烧包,噱头还真大。要吃这个包子,通常得先拿号码牌,再等上一个钟头左右。

外皮是酥脆的,和一般的比较起来,口感真的截然不同。

就是它了。

拨开时,那香味扑鼻,真的不是盖的。

听说这里的点心是现点现做,绝对新鲜。

You’ve got to wait for your char siew paus cause they take about 10 to 15 minutes to be served after you are seated. They fried the char siew pau!

The eatery sits less than 30 pax. If you wish to dine in at dinner time, get a number and report again after 45 minutes or an hour or so.

店内坐位不超过30个,晚餐时分,店外等待的客人至少有十人,其他拿了号码牌的客人通常会去逛个半小时才回来。
