Can you hear that? The sound of stomachs grumbling, mouths watering, dumplings steaming and feet running to Chatswood this Saturday for the opening of the world’s most famous dim sum restaurant at its first outlet outside of Asia. Tim Ho Wan holds a Michelin star at each of its three Hong Kong outlets, but don’t think that means hundreds of dollars and white tablecloths – it’s also the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant and could quite possibly be the best dumplings in Sydney.
Eric Koh will be the Acting Executive Chef at this new Sydney restaurant. Koh perfected his skills at Cantone restaurant, Hakassan in London and most recently at Mr. Wong, where he was head dim sum chef producing the most delicious prawn toasts in all the land. He’s been training with the dim sum master himself, Chef Mak Kwai Pui – Tim Ho Wan’s Head Chef and Founder, to recreate all the signature dishes when the first Sydney restaurant opens.
It’s destined to be massively popular, with Sydney’s addiction to dumplings and lining-up for good food almost out of control, however other branches are planned to open in Burwood later in the year and a flagship store in Sydney’s CBD in late 2015. Wherever you get your fix, it’s sure to be super delish. Run, don’t walk.
