What restaurant comes to your mind when someone mentions Dim Sum? Most SAS students would answer with “Din Tai Fung”. However, besides that, there are various other restaurants in Singapore that Dim Sum lovers should try.
1. Tim Ho Wan
Michelin Star restaurants have the highest recognition in the food industry. Tim Ho Wan originated from Hong Kong and is a proud Michelin Star restaurant that produces affordable and appetizing food. It has won the plaudits of food critics and the hearts of foodies around the world. A must try dish that I recommend is the Baked BBQ Pork Buns as it is Tim Ho Wan’s signature.
2. Paradise Dynasty
Xiao Long Bao (小笼包) is the first dish that a Dim Sum lover would reminisce about when someone mentions “Dim Sum”. Paradise Dynasty is the first restaurant that presents Xiao Long Bao with eight unique flavours that has their own associated color: original, ginseng, foie gras, black truffle, crab roe, cheese, garlic, and Szechuan. Other than Xiao Long Bao, Paradise Dynasty also offers a variety of Traditional Chinese dishes which can be labeled as some of the best Chinese cuisine in Singapore.
3. Din Tai Fung
Michelin star awarded Din Tai Fung is ranked as one of the world’s Top 10 Best Restaurants by The New York Times. They originate from Taiwan and offer a variety of Chinese dishes, specializing in Huai Yang cuisines and Xiao Long Bao, which most SAS students enjoy. The must-try dishes are, of course, their signature Xiao Long Bao and their Fried Rice with Pork Chop.
