Tim Ho Wan, the Hong Kong dim sum sensation, opened a location at Katy Grand on Nov. 7. This new arrival is significant in more ways than one: It's the global chain's first Texas restaurant, and it cements Katy's rapidly growing Asiatown as a prime destination for Chinese and other Asian food in the Houston area.
Katy residents and visitors alike are undoubtedly familiar with Katy Asian Town, the development off Colonial Parkway. Spurred by rapid Asian population growth in the area, it opened in 2018 with the unveiling of an H Mart grocery store, which anchors the strip center that's filled with exciting restaurants. There's Malaysian food at chef Alex-Au Yeung's acclaimed Phat Eatery, Vietnamese classics at Yummy Pho & Bo Ne and Com Tam Saigon, Chinese barbecue at Chung Wang BBQ, and Korean shaved ice at Sul Bing Su.
