hubby was in the queue at 6pm, and i joined him around 7pm after packing up from Public Garden. we waited till 7.30pm before we enter. the queue was stagnant at some points of time; and when we were nearer the entrance, the queue was faster and faster! In fact, the staff were wearing IQ3 t-shirts.. ("I queue for 3 hours at Tim Ho Wan") Good Luck!
However I dont find it worth the long wait, wonder when they'll implement the number system they mentioned to the media...here's my attempt at food review for those who are willing to wait (",)
it's polo pau with charsiew inside. eat when it's hot, so that the pau is crispier. the fillings are quite nice
not really nice. at least not to my expectations. tasteless unless u put sauce. crystal skin is normal, better if thinner skin
this is oh-so nice! with chunky pieces of white carrot (is that called radish? i forgot) and it's not greasy :)
we had 2 types, the char siew and the pork liver (one of the Big 4 Heavenly Kings Dim Sum).
my verdict: tasteless unless u soak the skin long enough in the sauce. my first taste was the top piece without any sauce.. oh manz
not bad, but i think din tai fung did a better job with the golden prawn pancake, crispier
i dun really like the spices, but everyone has different taste preference. i would prefer a more chewy texture, rather than steamed. hubby lied that the beef balls could bounce like ping pong... ha!
the steam cake is very light and fluffy. not too sweet. it might be better if this was the first dish that came rather than the 2nd last dish.
i'm not really someone who likes gui hua taste, but this is quite light flavoured. the goji berries inside could have been soaked (in syrup maybe?) to make it less dry when biting into the jelly
Oh yes, that's how much the 2 of us can eat! Nonetheless, for a bill of SGD 50+, it's worth it to dine at the Michelin 1-Star Restaurant. Just praying hard the queue system would improve so that we can bring our folks there soon!
