Dim Sum Buffet @ Yum Cha

Our favourite place to go to for dim sum before I check out the beauty and craft stores in Chinatown. We used to love having their dim sum buffets in the afternoons, but since our appetite have decreased somewhat, we now go for the a la carte.

They do serve soft drinks, but the boy loves his oolong tea. I prefer chrysenthemum tea, but they have since stopped brewing the flowers for their tea and switched to teabags instead, which in my opinion tastes disappointingly like plain water.

This is still my favourite place to have dim sum on a leisurely afternoon. There's just something about having some dim sum in a shophouse in the middle of Chinatown. Not only is the place air-conditioned, I enjoy looking out onto the busy shopping street from my seat by the window.

Here are some of the items we've tried.

Pork Ribs with Yam

Shrimp Beancurd Roll

Crystal Chives Dumplings

Crystal Mushroom Dumplings

Original Xiao Long Bao (to be eaten with vinegar and ginger)

Dim Sum Yum Cha
Mini Goose Liver Xiao Long Bao

Fish Roe Siew Mai

Paper-wrapped Chicken

Crispy Vegetarian Spring Roll

They also serve desserts such as lemongrass jelly with fruits, and the boy's favourite chilled mango pudding with sweetened milk

Time: 3-6pm, weekdays only
Price: Adults $19.80, Children below 12: $15.80
