Yum to yum cha at Tim Ho Wan
Michelin-starred Hong Kong dim sum restaurant Tim Ho Wan will be opening not one, but two outlets here.
The first, which opens in the middle of next month, will be an 80-seat restaurant at The Atrium@Orchard, Plaza Singapura's new wing. The second outlet will take over the space formerly occupied by Swensen's at ERA Centre in Toa Payoh Lorong 6, and is slated to open in the third quarter of the year.
The restaurants here will be the dim sum restaurant's first overseas outposts. It has four in Hong Kong, in areas such as Mongkok and Central.
Behind the $1-million venture is Hersing Corporation, which owns companies such as ERA Realty Network. The plan is to open a total of six Tim Ho Wan restaurants by the end of the year.
