TIM HO WAN MANILA 添好運: World’s Cheapest Michelin-Star Restaurant Opens in Manila!

Featured as MEGA FASHION HALL: 10 BEST New Restaurants @SMMegaMall in 2014!

TIM HO WAN (11 of 28).jpg

TIM HO WAN MANILA 添好運 finally opens in Manila! It is the first international expansion after the Singapore branch, which owns the Asian franchise of this Hong Kong original. The Manila franchise is a partnership between Ricky Dee of Mesa Filipino Moderne and Todd English Food Hall, and Felix Ang of Cats Motors.

I love the clean and high quality taste of their dimsum, which are priced unbelievably well. Check out the Tim Ho Wan flagship branch in SM Mega Fashion Hall…

They serve their own fun interpretations of Southeast Asian favorites and their own unique take on all-day breakfast. I like the vibe, the well-curated menu, and the secret entrance to the next-door cafe.

Gawad Kalinga

“Bayanihan para sa Kapayapaan” (@BayaniChallenge Week 4) #WalangIwanan

Gawad Kalinga Week 4: Bayanihan para sa Kapayapaan
Zamboanga. It is now eight months after the armed conflict, which left thousands of families homeless. While the loss, pain and fear may still linger, the spirit of Walang Iwanan now rises! The City Govt, the AFP, PNP, Ateneo De Zamboanga, D’Alert, and other local volunteers are now starting to build homes for the conflict victims.

“Building peace is doing good for others more than understanding the many  ‘WHYs’ of conflict. DOING GOOD FOR OTHERS will bring out the greatness from each other. GREATNESS is selfless, unwavering and an uncompromising resolve to build for God and Country. Walang Iwanan!” 

– Luis Oquiñena
