Making a Trail

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

My Dim Sum Hajj is finally complete. Earlier today becky and I went to Tim Ho Wan. It is considered to be the cheapest restaurant to get a michelen star.

Honestly, this place deserves it. Everything we had was fantasitc.

Apparently the original is so popular they have four different locations and apparently they all get really busy. We got there right at 10am because I was worried about a big line. Luckily, there wasn’t a line and we got seated right away (I think this was due to the massive thunderstorms and flooded streets, but I’m not going to let that get in the way).



They thing that really stood out was the pork buns. Literally so good. Sweet crispy dough filled with amazing pork goodness. I ate three by myself. I’m not embarassed to admit it. It was worth it. I would do it again. Stop looking at me like that.


Everything else was good including the giant sized lotus wrapped sticky rice we ordered.


The gnarly pork knuckle/bone things were the best I had ever had.


We even tried some desert jelly that had bits of plants and berries inside, that wasn’t too shabby either.


One of the best parts…The bill!


Total for a huge filling delicious meal? 196 HKD or about $25 bucks. Pretty cheap if you don’t count the cost flying about 7,000 miles from home 🙂

We got to enjoy a fantastic meal and I got to cross another bucket list item off my list: great dim sum in Hong Kong!
