    Classics like Deep-fried Beancurd Skin Roll with Prawn, Steamed Honey Glazed Pork Bun and more grace the menu together with more unique choices like Crispy Scallop Coated with Filo String.

    You’ll probably have little luck getting a table without a reservation for a dim sum lunch here, and surely that’s testament to how amazing the food here is. Its menu star is a winner packed in a field of champions: the Baked Chicken and Mango Tart (pictured right), a sweet-savoury delight encased on light, buttery pastry.

    4 / 8 East Ocean Teochew Restaurant

    Comforting dim sum favourites come in steamed, pan-fried, deep-fried varieties and more. Our reco: the steamed BBQ pork buns trump the baked ones. For sweeter options, the baked mini egg tarts take the cake. Plus, the kids get cute animal-shaped dim sum!

    5 / 8 Yum Cha

    Bustling with Singaporean families speaking in dialect, Yum Cha is busy – rowdy, even – but the charm of this restaurant lies in this very authenticity. Must-tries include tried-and-true classics include Siew Mai and Baked Egg Tarts, as well as their restaurant specialties like the Rainbow Seafood Dumpling.

  • Mitzo
    6 / 8 Mitzo

    If you can ever describe a restaurant and its food as sexy, that’s what Mitzo is. Mitzo reinvents Cantonese fare with flavours simultaneously familiar and fresh, blowing even the Asians away. A must-try: their specialty char siew (barbecued roasted pork), caramelized to sweet-savoury perfection.

  • Min Jiang
    7 / 8 Min Jiang

    The dim sum here is delightfully refined – possibly even a bit too clean for those after the original, busy Hong Kong teahouse experience. But if luxe is your thing, then it’s worth putting all your eggs in Min Jiang’s dim sum basket. For a change of setting, get a table outdoors on the verandah by the pool.

    This restaurant’s crowning glory: dramatically colorful xiao long bao (Shanghai steamed dumplings containing meat and soup) of 8 different flavours, from foie grass to garlic to cheese.
