With the settling of the torrential rain and winds, the skies greeted us with fortune as we made our way to Michelin-Starred restaurant Tim Ho Wan.
Our lucky charms began with the infamous Baked Buns with Barbeque Pork. Sticky tender soy coated pork encased in a pillow of fluffy bun topped with a sweet crisp top.
Next was the Steamed Rice Flour Rolls. Tender sheets with just the right amount of firmness, drizzled with sweet light soy, earthy nut paste and a scattering of sesame seeds.
Fish Maw with Prawn Paste. Gelatinous clean finish of fish maw topped with smooth paste with bites of prawn.
Spinach Dumpling with Shrimp. The shiny skin of the dumpling melted away to jelly, a sign of masterful skill. The freshness of the spinach with mouthfuls of prawn, amazing.
Though the stars above may be aligned, and good luck blessed upon those who enter these doors, the culinary kung fu is anything but luck.
