Those Fine Buns

It was one of those days when Dante and I were excited to try out something new.  But not so new anymore now.  Haha!  This post is way delayed.  Haha! But to those who haven’t eaten there yet, it’s a great place to have merienda and prices are pretty reasonable.

So we got in our car on a normal day and went through the usual Edsa traffic to eat in Tim Ho Wan in SM Megamall.  This was when the Glorietta branch was still closed.  We arrived at around 1:30pm and the line wasn’t so long.  But there was still a bit of waiting time of around 15 minutes.  Not bad 🙂 Good thing I wasn’t that hungry yet or else I wouldn’t have waited.  Haha!

Their menu is a little check list on a clipboard and all we had to do was check our orders.

I just kept checking and checking… Haha!  Everything in the menu looks so good!!!

Everything we ate so far was good!

But of course, the star of Tim Ho Wan, their pork buns! 🙂  I really enjoyed every bite.  From the soft and crumbly bread to the sweet asado pork filling!

I would definitely come back for these fine buns! 🙂

Before the Ramen Addiction

15 Jan

I was never a Ramen lover before.  Wouldn’t even consider trying it.

Every time I would go to a ramen house with Dante,

I would either order gyoza or anything else BUT ramen.

Again with our favorite Hongkie couple, Gerwin and Charlie

 In our recent trip to HK, Dante kept begging me to eat with him in Ippudo.

I wasn’t too excited.  Kept thinking, noodle soup for dinner?  But I’m not sick.  LOL!

But I was excited to have dinner with Charlie and Gerwin 🙂

So here we are...

Waiting for our food 🙂

Being the stubborn person that I am, I stuck with my usual orders.

My Gyoza

Pork Buns

My little pork bowl

Was still hungry so I ordered another dish.

A mini dish, that is. My little plate of fried chicken.

Meanwhile, the three were raving about their ramen bowls.

Why?! What’s so great about a bowl of noodle soup.  I just don’t get it.

I always associated eating ramen or noodle soup with being sick at home in bed.

Little did I know…
