There’s no denying that Melbourne loves its Chinese food, from the cheap and cheerful China Town offerings to the up-market David’s or Flower Drum. We may be spoilt for choice, but there is a gaping, Michelin star-sized hole in Melbourne’s Chinese food scene, and Tim Ho Wan is coming to fill it.
Due to open on Bourke Street in April 2016, the hugely popular Hong Kong chain earned its Michelin rating in 2010 and is understood to be the world’s cheapest restaurant ever to receive a star from the prestigious French body. Tim Ho Wan opened its first eatery outside south-east Asian when it launched in Sydney in May this year and is finally bringing its BBQ pork buns (and apparently massive queues) to our fair city.
So what does a Michelin-starred dumpling taste like? If our friends in Sydney know what they’re talking about, INCREDIBLE. And even better, you can get a serving of four of these tasty morsels for under ten bucks. Not quite the price tag we would expect from a Michelin restaurant!
Look out for Tim Ho Wan on Bourke Street in the Melbourne CBD this coming April.
