A Taiwanese restaurant known for their “xiao long bao”. This type of dim sum is almost like a siomai but packed with very hot soup inside. One of the best ways to eat it is just like eating a “balut”. Take a small bite at the top and slurp the meaty broth first. Then eat it all in one bite.

A restaurant from Hong Kong that is known for their baked pork buns. It is like our favorite pan de sal but much softer. Each bite gives you a taste of savory and saucy meat, just like a siopao, that melts in your mouth. One of the reasons why many people love Tim Ho Wan is because of its affordability. Its actually one of the cheapest Michelin star restaurants in the world so its definitely a must-try.

Yummy pork buns!

A Singaporean restaurant is also set to arrive in the Philippines this year. It is not just known for their incredibly tasty soya sauce chicken rice but also for being very affordable. In fact, it booted out Tim Ho Wan as the cheapest Michelin star restaurant so its really worth waiting for. In Singapore, an order of the famous Michelin star meal will only cost SG $2 or approximately 75 pesos. In the Philippines, the meals will be priced slightly higher, at 99 pesos per meal, but still very affordable.
