I was in Plaza Singapura around 6, and I saw the line at Tim Ho Wan was short, so I joined in. I didn't have to wait long before getting a table (about 10 mins--I was actually passed up by a number of diners since my companion hadn't arrived yet). We ordered the BBQ pork buns, carrot cake, Teochew dumplings, char siew chee chong fun and siew mai. Read MoreHide
The food was quite good, and came relatively quickly. I especially liked the Teochew dumplings, which were pork with water chestnut--something I've never seen before.
I would recommend trying the BBQ pork buns--the inside is nice, but be warned the outside is strangely sweet. But overall, I'm glad I tried it once.
I wouldn't recommend the carrot cake. It didn't seem special to me, and it had too much dried shrimp inside--of which I am not a fan.
The tables are definitely a bit small and close to other diners. Be prepared to eat fast or stack your baskets on top of eachother.
Overall, I'm glad I've tried the famous Tim Ho Wan, and I was not disappointed by my visit, but I do not see any need to go again, unless to eat those Teochew dumplings.
