The top dim sum joints in town
From old-school joints to modern restaurants experimenting with new flavours, here’s where you can find the best dim sum in the city.
It’s probably the prettiest place in the city for dim sum. Take in picturesque views from Jade’s floor-to- ceiling windows, or be entranced by its recently refurbished interiors featuring pastel jade hues and specially commissioned wallpaper printed with birds native to Singapore. An à la carte dim sum menu is available during weekday lunch, and on weekends, head down for a brunch buffet that has a selection of over 50 dishes at only $39 for adults and $19 for kids. Expect staples such as siew mai with abalone and shrimp dumplings, as well as unique creations like deep fried taro paste wrapped in truffle and mushroom. Don’t miss chef Leong Chee Yeng’s signature osmanthus char siew bao, either – the fluffy steamed buns are meaty and bear a hint of floral fragrance that perfumes each bite.
