When Hong Kong-based Tim Ho Wan won a Michelin star in 2009, it was the cheapest restaurant in the world to have done so. After expanding across Southeast Asia and into Australia, it finally arrived in New York in 2016. You can expect dim sum that's as flavorful as it is inexpensive at this East Village outpost, like translucent prawn dumplings and baked pork buns. Location-specific items are available too, including custard-filled French toast and deep-fried vegetable spring rolls -- because New Yorkers are special and we deserve to be treated as such.
