Translated as ‘add good luck’, Tim Ho Wan is a restaurant chain that has expanded globally to more than 20 outlets in nine countries. Yong Qiang Wei leads the Melbourne kitchen, overseeing the quality of the Chinese dishes. The bright and bustling restaurant has blond wood throughout, and bamboo lids decorate the ceiling. This is a fabulous place to meet up with friends.
The menu presents the best of Chinese cuisine, from vermicelli rolls to rice dishes. Baked bun with barbecue pork boasts a light and crispy exterior that gives a satisfying crack when you bite into it. The sweet and tangy filling of barbecue pork is delicious, so it’s not surprising that this is one of the most popular dishes on the menu. Pan-fried wagyu dumplings are tasty little bites. They would have been improved if the dumpling skin was a little less chewy.
