    This noon don't know what to eat so came across this Tim Ho Wan shop at Robinsons Place near the hotel

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Was pleasantly surprised that the dimsum is better than our Crystal Jade

    Like this century egg porridge was great just like the Hong Kong version
    [​IMG]

    Prawns in this tofu skin was so fresh and big too
    [​IMG]

    Don't know what you call this good also subtly spicy
    [​IMG]

    The oyster sauce is unlike in Singapore
    [​IMG]

    Steamed pork rib
    [​IMG]

    Surprised they do not have wanton noodle instead its fishball noodle soup, the soup is exactly like Hong Kong wanton noodle soup really like this and the noodle is also QQ type
    [​IMG]

    Overall very happy with this meal. Here's the menu and prices

    Froggy, was the locale at Makati (or Greenbelt stretch)? See you got good company again:D

    For us lesser folks, the airport's F&B sucks. Even the SQ (non-premier) lounge is a madhouse
