"Highlights include steamed shrimp dumpling, baked bun with barbecue pork and steamed beef balls."

That's what the Michelin Guide has to say about Tim Ho Wan, the Hong Kong-based dim sum parlor where there's typically a line of eager eaters waiting to sample 25 varieties of dim sum, including steamed egg cake, vermicelli roll and pan-fried carrot cake. After debuting in 2009, the restaurant earned a Michelin star in 2010 and a reputation as one of the most reasonably priced Michelin-starred restaurants in the world. In the years since, Tim Ho Wan has expanded to include dozens of restaurants in Singapore; the Philippines; Taiwan; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Jakarta, Indonesia; Sydney; and New York.

Now, a new outpost is destined for the Palms, where the 5,055-square-foot restaurant will open in the third quarter of 2019 as part of the west casino expansion. For the desert outpost, chef Mak Kwai Pui will add an exclusive Vegas-inspired dish to the menu.

And Tim Ho Wan will join an exciting slate of dining options coming to the off-Strip resort. Michael Symon, Marc Vetri, Bobby Flay and Chris Santos all have restaurants coming to the Palms.
