Hong Kong has the world's cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant...

The three-hour queues at Tim Ho Wan could make the most patient among us feel slightly crazed. Even the woman manning the counter is agitated; hastily scrawling a number on a yellow Post-it note and shoving it unceremoniously into my hand.

This is the moment I'm expected to leave, but I linger, timidly inquiring how long the wait will be. Big mistake.

"Two hours!" she barks, squawking something in Cantonese into a tiny microphone attached to the register.

I edge outside, mystified. It's hard to believe I've just made a reservation at a Michelin-starred restaurant. It felt more like dropping off a shirt at the drycleaners. More...

Don't miss:

  1. Chinese restaurant had mouse swimming in sweet and sour sauce!!!
  2. Mystery man offers free meals at Taiwanese restaurant...
  3. In London, you can eat sushi off naked models!!!
  4. Singaporeans can be very patient ...when it comes to this particular Char Kway Teow!!!
