Every year my hubby and I head to NYC during the Christmas season. We love to see the tree in Rockefeller Center, take in a broadway show and have a fantastic meal somewhere. So when we heard about Tim Ho Wan opening on the lower east side it became our mission to eat there. I already knew about their Hong Kong main location. It has the distinction of being the cheapest Michelin star restaurant in the world with its delectable dim sum and equally wonderful prices.
The real story here though is that we had Michelin star level food for dinner in NYC for under $50, including the delicious tea. It was unpretentious, purely amazing dim sum in a very relaxed atmosphere at a fantastic price. We had plenty of time to leave and get to Midtown before our 8pm broadway show, so the day worked out perfectly! People thought we were silly for waiting 3 hours but let me tell you it was worth it.
