Cheapest Michelin Star Restaurant in the World
Tim Ho Wan is the hole-in-the-wall dim sum restaurant that scored One Michelin Star, thereby earning its reputation as the ‘cheapest Michelin Star restaurant in the world’.
Owner-chef known as Pui-Gor (Chef Mak Kwai Pui) is formerly from 3-star Michelin restaurant Lung King Heen.
His signature Baked Bun with Barbecued Pork (HK$16 for 3) is seriously the best I ever eaten. Very similar to a bolo bao, the sweet pastry covered bun is light and fluffy, with skin so thin, and saucy char siew pork within almost oozing out. Supercrazygood! The rest of the other dim sum were inconsistent, and service the typical hurried and no-frills. (Read: Tim Ho Wan)
