Michelin-starred Chain in Cambodia: Tim Ho Wan

12:12:00 AM

Another reason to visit Phnom Penh, Cambodia: the Michelin-starred dim sum chain opened just on the first few days on August 2017 at Aeon Mall. 

The food is good and affordable. I bet you already know that dim sum is a food you share with a friend or whoever is accompanying you in the restaurant. Also, you are supposed to eat a lot. Well, for our case, we couldn't eat a lot. 

Pork & Shrimp Siew Mai which costed $3.50

The wonton wrapper was so fresh. It tasted totally different with the usual siew mai I had. We could also taste the whole shrimp in it. It was small but was already slowly filling our stomachs.



By the way, as for ordering the food, they do it this way. I noticed this more in Cambodia. When we go to restaurants, they normally just hand the customers a pen and a paper of the menu for us to fill up. It's more convenient that way and they just need to confirm the orders.

It was a few hours after lunch and during the weekdays so it wasn't full and we could enjoy our food. They have an open kitchen where you can see the chefs cooking and a private room for of course, private dinners.

Now as we go on to our food exploration...
we basically started off with the baked BBQ pork buns which costed $3.80.


This lovely golden brown perfect looking buns that would surprise you with a tasty filling.

Calvin loved this one best. It is what he has been wanting to eat. I didn't like it, because it was my first time to eat a sweet bun and a char siu inside it. It was good, but I prefer the other. A lot of people likes it but maybe because it was new for me or something like that. I was trying to get to know more about dim sum. 

Anyway, all of our orders were almost served at the same time, if not, it's one after the other.

Another order was Dumpling Teochew Style which costed $3.50.

This one, I love the best. I like the size, the taste of the vegetables, the filling, and especially after dipping it into the sauce. From the texture of the wrapper to the filling. It was so good I wanted more, but there are still others we had to eat.


Then we got this Pork Rib with Yam & Black Bean Sauce which costed $3.50.


This was good, the yam keeps the heat in it and I think it is best to eat with rice or something else to enjoy the sauce. The sauce was so good. It tasted heavenly but we were experiencing hell. The more we eat, the fuller we get. We still have one more and we were having a hard time finishing them.

We were a bit in a pinch, so we couldn't spend an hour eating all of them. 

And then we got this Shrimp Vermicelli Roll which costed $3.80.

We both love this one so much. It was too much for us, but we didn't care, we just loved how this food tasted. The freshness is just bursting into our mouths. This just keeps my eyes stuck to it, inviting me to eat it.

It was a good experience. A good meal for lunch but too much I guess? Overall, we spent $23.00 for everything including an unlimited serving of hot tea for Calvin while I got one glass of original tea which was homemade barley tea.

  1. Look good! The next time when I travel to another country, that time, I already have my valid ID since I am processing now for the renewal. Coz I know you will not be able to get into the country if you do not have one. I love to eat food from a different country. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Everything looked so delicious! The pricing isn't bad either. BBQ pork buns are honestly one of my favorite guilty pleasures and those looks way more appetizing than the ones I make.

    1. I definitely agree. Most of the time, Michelin-starred restaurants are normally higher priced but this one is great. You should check them out when you can to see if it is more appetizing. :)
