Dim sum can be pretty appetising.
It can also be pretty costly.
Just ask frequent consumers of Michelin-starred Chinese dim sum restaurant chain Tim Ho Wan.
With a bevvy of mouthwatering favourites like the siew mai, har gao and chee cheong fun, Tim Ho Wan’s indisputably a paradise for hardcore dim sum lovers. But the only setback?
The baskets and plates go between $5-$7. Hardly affordable.
But hey, they do say that every cloud has a silver lining. And while rare, it seems that Tim Ho Wan’s cloud has finally sprung a silver lining out of its ass:
Your favourite bites will now be going at $3.50 each every Monday to Friday, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The deal you’ve been waiting for
If you’ve been constantly bemoaning Tim Ho Wan’s less-than-affordable prices, your pleas have been heard.
From now on, the Chinese dim sum restaurant chain will be pushing out all your favourite bites at just $3.50++.
Considering how the usual fare goes for $5-7, we gotta say that it’s real value-for-money here.
And it’s not just pastries either, as sweet treats have been included in the promotional campaign as well. A deft move if you ask us; because there’s no better time for desserts than that lethargic time period between 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Meanwhile, you can view Tim Ho Wan’s full list of tea time delicacies here.
Though remember; the promotion only covers the dishes displayed in the poster above. But with more than 20 items on the menu, we dare say that you’ll still be spoilt for choice. Pleasantly.
No dabao-ing though
As disappointing as it sounds, the promotion will not be operating on a takeaway basis. So yeah…
No dabao-ing for your parents, grandparents, friends, siblings, nannies and Aunt Matildas.
But hey, with Tim Ho Wan’s various outlets spread around Singapore, we dare say that it won’t be that hard for your parents, grandparents, friends, siblings, nannies and Aunt Matildas to get to one themselves.
Here’s a list of all qualifying outlets for the benefit of your parents, grandparents, friends… etc. etc.
- CityLink Mall

Don’t worry, we got their backs 😉
And so… what’re you waiting for?
If you’re a big fan of Tim Ho Wan, or you’ve got a loved one who’s on THW-based medication, I’m telling you;
This is the time.
So head on down to Tim Ho Wan asap, because in the end…
You never know when the promotion’s gonna end.
Tim Ho Wan
Originating in Hong Kong, Tim Ho Wan first started out as a 20-seater dim sum restaurant in Mongkok, Hong Kong, in 2009. Within a year, it earned its first Michelin star, garnered in the 2010 Hong Kong and Macau guide.
Following that, in 2015, its Sham Shui Po, North Point and Tai Kok Tsui branches had all received one Michelin Star. Ever since then, the restaurant has been dubbed as “the world’s cheapest Michelin-star restaurant.”
Editor: Why are you even writing this chunk. Is anyone gonna read it?
Well, I do have to fulfil my minimum word quota. And besides, I wanted to highlight the irony in that last sentence. Because well…
Even if it’s the cheapest Michelin-star restaurant in the world, it’s still not cheap enough for us.
