Michelin-Starred Dim Sum Restaurant Heads to the Palms

Tim Ho Wan plans to open next year

Dim sum worthy of a Michelin star in Hong Kong heads to the Palms next year. Tim Ho Wan plans to open at 5,055-square-foot Cantonese dim sum restaurant in the new casino expansion on the western side of the resort.

Since opening in 2009 in Hong Kong’s Mong Kok district, Tim Ho Wan earned a Michelin star and went on to expand to almost 50 locations in nine countries, including two in New York City, one in Hawaii, and another opening in Long Beach, California, this winter.

Mak Kwai Pui, formerly a chef of three Michelin-starred Lung King Heen at the Four Seasons in Hong Kong, and Leung Fai Keung co-founded the restaurant that now refers to itself as “the world’s most inexpensive Michelin-awarded dim sum restaurant.”

Dishes include barbecue pork buns and rice rolls, pan-fried turnip cakes, sui mai (steamed dumplings), har gow (shrimp dumplings), and steamed egg cake. Mak also plans to create a special dish just for the Palms location.

Fans can expect a third quarter 2019 opening.

The Palms started its $620 million renovation last year, and already debuted Scotch 80 Prime, Apex Social Club, and Camden Cocktail Lounge in May. Bobby Flay plans to open a seafood restaurant, while former The Chew co-host Michael Symon brings Mabel’s BBQ, and Marc Vetri out of Philadelphia has an Italian restaurant on the way. Tao Group’s Vandal and a nightclub and dayclub from the same nightlife veterans also plan to open.
