Tim Ho Wan Manila Michelin-Starred Restaurant in SM Megamall

Tim Ho Wan, the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world is now in Manila! Their flagship store is located in the first level of SM Megamall's Mega Fashion Hall, and opened to the public last May 20, 2014.

I was lucky to be part of the SM Mega Food Tour last Tuesday, so I got to try Tim Ho Wan on their first day of operation. As expected, there was a long line of customers patiently waiting outside.
