Supper time with Dim Sum! Some months ago while I was working night shifts at my previous work place I would meet with my boyfriend when I finished at 1:30am in the morning and we'd go have supper. My evening meal break would usually be around 4:30pm or 5pm so I'd be pretty ravenous by then. After going to two places on alternate occasions I decided it was time to look for a new supper spot. Singapore doesn't have too many places open 24 hours or late into the early morning hours so this established old school dim sum house seemed like a great choice.
|Late night suppers with dim sum at Swee Choon Tim Sum!|
|A must order of the classics of har gow and siew mai!|
|Another favorite xiao long bao which this quaint place makes extremely well! Almost to the standard which I love from Crystal Jade restaurants.|
|Fried yam dumplings, filled with a savory yam filling and bits of pork.|
|A childhood favorite of cheong fan! These are filled with juicy crunchy shrimp served with a sweet and salty soy sauce that absorbs!|
|Cold dish chicken served with a szechuan chilli oil sauce! Tender, spicy and tasty!|
|A spread from one of our few supper meals we had at Swee Choon Tim Sum! A feast really!|
|The huge menu at Swee Choon Tim Sum! They serve plenty of dim sum as well as appetizers, some main dishes and desserts too!|
|Close up! Their pricing isn't exactly cheap but as they serve quite a few dim sum items in servings of 2 pieces it's slightly cheaper than if you were to order at other places for the same amount. Also you can eat more!|
|Crispy squid tentacles! These are always perfectly crisp and so well seasoned!|
|Vegetable spring rolls, nothing special unfortunately!|
|Dumplings in chilli oil and vinegar! Love this type of dish, I always end up putting more black vinegar!|
|Pork and vegetable filling!|
|Black bean pork spare ribs, super tender and yummy!|
|Hot and sour soup! My boyfriend's favorite!|
|Pan fried dumplings! A good crisp bottom never fails to make me happy!|
|Sweet, soft and yummy! The crust isn't the best but these are still delightful!|
|Coconut pudding served in a coconut! Super light in flavor and taste like the lightest coconut milk!|
|Mango, sago pudding with pomelo bits! A classic!|
There is my overview of this lovely cheap and good dim sum shop! I hope we go back sometime because the food never lets us down!
