UberGuide: Top 5 Dim Sum Restaurants

Dim sum is a Cantonese style of preparing individual portions of steamed or fried food. The usual suspects include sweet and savoury dumplings, rolls and rice dishes along with local favorites like chicken feet or tripe. A traditional dim sum meal is always accompanied with bottomless tea service.

Whether it’s champagne dim sum brunches or 24 hour Hong-Kong style carts, Singapore’s unique dim sum culture caters to all styles and palettes. This handy guide lists our favourite dim sum restaurants in the city.

Midnight cravings, you say? Swing by Swee Choon for their affordable all-night menu. Located at the heart of Jalan Besar, in the district of Little India, they offer an extensive variety of Shanghai and Hong-Kong dim sum.

When you make a trip to Tim Ho Wan, don’t be surprised to be greeted by a queue even during the early hours of the morning – the restaurant has become a post-clubbing favourite. Started by Michelin-starred Chef Mak Kwai Pui, their char siew buns and steamed egg cake are a must have.

Din Tai Fung’s claim to fame is undoubtedly their xiao long bao (steamed pork dumplings). The melt-in-your mouth buns encase a piping hot broth and is packed with flavor. Did you know the skin of each of their signature xiao long bao consists of a minimum of 18 folds on the top?

With the title of one of Asia’s Best 50 Restaurants, Imperial treasure surely lives up to hype. The roast duck, siew mai and baked egg tart are definite crowd pleasers.

Mix up next weekend’s champagne brunch and head on over to Yan Ting’s dim sum buffet. Though this meal will set you back SGD 170 per person, you’ll be spoiled with over 80 varieties of quality dim sum matched with free flow of Moet Champagne to wash it down.
