Tim Ho Wan Celebrates 1-Year Anniversary with New Menu Items

Although Tim Ho Wan opened in Waikiki a year ago, it wasn't until last week did I visit for a tasting of some of the new menu items.

Nat had blogged about Tim Ho Wan twice before, so I knew the food was good and was excited to try.

Steamed Kona Abalone ($14.99)
This Hawaii-exclusive menu item comes with two fresh pieces of the famous abalone from Hawaii’s Big Island.

Steamed Maine Lobster ($29.99) 
The lobster with “the best price in Waikiki” is full of umami, flavored with Tim Ho Wan’s signature homemade soy sauce and topped with green onions and ginger. The whole lobster is cut in half, making it easy for guests to enjoy the meal without much fuss.

Pan Fried Rice Roll with XO Sauce ($12.99)
Featuring the hot rice rolls sautéed with vegetables in XO sauce, a homemade spicy sauce prepared with dried scallop.

Steamed Vegetable Dumplings ($5.80)
Vegetarian-friendly, the vegetable dumpling features enoki, celery, carrot, Chinese peas, and Wood Ear mushrooms.

Pan Fried Chicken Dumpling with Ginger Essence ($5.80)
This delicious dumpling comes with a side of Red Vinegar and julienne ginger.

Matcha Sesame Balls with Red Bean ($5.80)
Jin Dui lovers rejoice! These bite-size sesame balls are ideal for dessert. 

Other new menu items include:
Fried Noodle with Char Siu ($9.99)
The beloved Fried Noodles is now available with char siu.

Fried Shrimp Dumpling with Chives ($5.80)
Theses crispy deep-fried dumplings stuffed with succulent shrimp and chives are as addictive as they sound.

Won Ton with Spicy Sauce ($5.80)
Spicy yet flavorful, the won ton takes the dim sum line up to the next level.

My favorite of the new menu items was the Pan Fried Rice Roll with XO Sauce.  I loved the texture of the rice rolls, and I enjoy all things spicy.  The XO sauce had a real nice kick to it!

Others at my table raved about the Lobster and Chicken Dumplings.

We also tried a trio of Tim Ho Wan signature menu items:

Sticky Rice in Lotus Leaf ($6.80)

Steamed Shrimp Dumpling ($5.80)

Steamed Pork Dumplings with Shrimp

I loved the Steamed Pork Dumplings, which is a very popular item at Tim Ho Wan!

I can't believe it took me so long to try Tim Ho Wan!  I'll be back soon for more dim sum!

More notable news from Tim Ho Wan:
