Good Tim sum

This is a really popular supper hangout for me and my friends due to the fact that it serves very good Tim sum and a pretty cheap price. As with all good Tim sum dining places, the standard items like the har Kao and siew mai are all there. I would prefer to go on weekdays as weekends can get pretty crowded. If you are planning to be an early bird and be there when the place opens for operations, do take note that the place opens officially at 630 ( or maybe 6pm if I remember wrongly) so do adjust your timing and schedule accordingly. This place is good for gatherings for both your friends and families and a guarantee that you will have a satisfying meal

Out of curiosity

Goggling over internet, knew that swee choon restaurant is one of the famous dim sum restaurant.
So i bring my husband there to try out. We reached there 1 hour before the operating of the restaurant so we thought of going somewhere first before we came back to the restaurant.

We came back 15mins bef the restaurant opened. To our shock,  there was a very long queue. I
 checked with Swee Choon staffs whether need to queue before going in. Staff told us no need to queue, can just walked in.

Therefore we walked, ordered some dim sums, ready to eat once arrived.
Please refer to the photos that i attached on my orders.

late night dim sum

Found myself craving for some salted egg yolk custard bun (Liu Sha Bao).

Walked all the way from Farrer Park MRT with my friends.

Location was hellishly far.

However, the effort was worth it.

Instead of having one serving of “Liu Sha Bao”, we ended up ordering 2 more servings.

The other dishes, such as “Xiao Long Bao” and “Siew Mai” tasted pretty good too.

Had “Mango with Pomelo & Sago” for dessert as it was refreshing.

Prices were affordable

 

One minor hiccup was that the waitress mixed up 2 of our dishes.

But the correction was done efficiently without any delay in serving the food.

 

For those who are adventurous, you can try the “Fried Custard Pumpkin”.

Great for that midnight craving

After a night of heavy binge drinking there is nothing like some dimsum! 

I find myself dragging my sorry soul to swee choon each time i hae a heavy night out.

Quality is not fantastic, but its the opening hours which really draw in the crowds.
