Cheap & Delicious Dim Sum! 😊 WHERE?! 😱 My Daily Singapore life #1
Presenting to everyone the first entry of many in my Daily Singapore life series!
Through this series, I want to show everyone some of the more interesting happenings in my daily life in Singapore!
I will cover questions such as
WHAT TO EAT?
WHERE TO GO?
WHAT TO DO?
I hope my posts will give you some insights on the lives of a local Singaporean, inspire you to visit this small little country, or help you get some ideas on what to do if you're going to be visiting soon!
So let's get started! Please enjoy.
Today I will bring everyone on a trip to eat some inexpensive and delicious Dimsum!
Dimsum is a style of chinese/cantonese cuisine that is served steamed or fried, on small plates and trays. They tend to be bite sized and are traditionally served with tea.
We will be heading to a restaurant located not too far from the city centre by the name of Swee Choon Dim Sum. It is quite accesible, and although most of these stations below are near, my most recommended station to get off is Jalan Besar Station on the Downtown Blue Line.
Once you reach the station, get out of the station through Exit B heading towards Desker Road. It should take less than 3 minutes of straight walking and you will soon see this!
A few more steps forward and you will reach the restaurant!
Someone will be around the door and will assist you in getting a table either on the inside or outdoor section of the restaurant (your preference!)
Don't be too daunted by the menu! It's fairly easy to understand. There are a few sets of the menu with pictures of the dishes and drinks, and you will have to fill in the white menu sheet with the quantity of the dish you want. Ring for the waiter and just sit back for your food!
These are the dishes we ordered!
Roast Pork Bun 叉烧包
Portugese Egg Tarts 葡式蛋挞
Seaweed Dumpling Soup 紫菜云吞汤
Siew Mai (A kind of Pork /shrimp filled dumpling) 烧卖
Crispy Fried Prawn Roll 香脆虾卷
Xiao Long Bao (Soup filled pork bun) 小笼包
Rice Noodle Roll/Chee Cheong Fun 猪肠粉
And last but not least the most graphic of them all!
The Salted egg yolk custard bun 流沙包！
I prepared a GIF for everyone to see!
So for two people we spent about SGD30 for this amount of food! If you intend to come with friends in a group of 4, maybe you can prepare a budget of about 10-15 each and you should be able to eat quite alot!
I had alot of fun eating (as you can see!) and I hope you enjoyed my post as much as I did writing it! I hope my post gave you some inspiration for your next travel to Singapore, and add this food to your to-eat list.
Please give me some suggestions to write for my next Singapore post, and let me know if you have any questions. I will be extremely happy to answer them! 😎
