[Shout-Out] Tim Ho Wan Launched Its First Dim Sum Restaurant Franchisee In MANILA
Tim Ho Wan, the Michelin-starred restaurant chain, crossed yet another milestone on 20 May 2014, Tuesday. Its first-ever restaurant franchise in SM Megamall, Manila, opened its doors. This is Hersing Corporation Pte Ltd’s next international expansion plan following the launch of Tim Ho Wan Singapore restaurants.
The soft launch of the restaurant generated overwhelming support from residents living in the Manila. Around 800 guests visited the restaurant on the first day, eager to enjoy the array of authentic Hong Kong style dim sum Tim Ho Wan offers. SM Megamall is one of the largest malls in Asia and an iconic landmark. Thanks to the spacious premise, Tim Ho Wan fans are able to wait in comfort for their turns to enter the restaurant.
The dim sum dishes, which are a hallmark of quality, are made with premium ingredients. 10 dim sum specialist chefs also flew in to ensure standards will be upheld. The dishes are delectable, fresh and not kept overnight. Tim Ho Wan’s dim sum dishes are not pre-steamed and then reheated. Instead, they are made to order so as to ensure the textures and flavours are tantalising.
On the first day of the soft opening, Tim Ho Wan’s marquee dish, the Baked Bun with BBQ Pork, sold out completely even before closing hours. To cope with this high demand, Tim Ho Wan had to prepare 1.5 times more of its Baked Bun with BBQ Pork the next day.
The fervent support has continued even after the soft opening and snaking queues are a common sight. Many patrons want to try Tim Ho Wan’s Big 4 Heavenly Kings, which include the Baked Bun with BBQ Pork, Vermicelli Roll Stuffed With Pig’s Liver, Pan Fried Turnip Cake and Steamed Egg Cake. These signature dishes have made Tim Ho Wan the most famous dim sum restaurant in Hong Kong.
The official launch for Tim Ho Wan in Manila will be on 18 June 2014, Wednesday. To ensure the efficient management of queues, the restaurant will follow the practice used by its predecessors: seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
