Even though it has been 2 months after opening, the long snaking queue lines at THW are still going strong everyday! Makan Boy and I went down yesterday night (Monday) at about 7.40pm and queued for nearly 30mins before we were allocated a table. As like any other popular restaurants, bigger groups got to wait way longer. Do take note that you won't be given a table even if it's your turn, unless all your guests are present.
The menu is very straightforward and in no way fancy.
The bun has a crumbly texture on the surface and very tender, smooth interior just right beneath. As pictured above, the layer of the bun is pretty thin! This makes everything inside oooze out (almost like liu sha bao). The BBQ pork has a right balance between sweet and saltish flavour and the meat was easy to bite. We left it for a while to eat the other dishes and felt it tasted best when piping hot!
IMHO, this is the kind of bun that brings delight to customers and make them fall in love at 'first bite' hahhaha.

Their chilli sauce has got some soy sauce beans mixed in which made it too salty for my liking. Furthermore, there's no need to dip any of their items in chilli sauce cause they all tasted decent on its own! =D
|Q-ing for 3 hours just to savour the good food in life is a sign of strong will and determination in any foodie's eyes.|
