Self-proclaimed as the best 24-hour dim sum restaurant (and they’re not wrong), Tim Ho Wan has extended beyond Hong Kong and is now globally known. Pork makes up a large majority of their selection. Their BBQ Pork Baked Bun is so good it’s gotten many of their patrons dying. Not ordering it when you dine here would be a crime!
The best Liu Sha Bao in Singapore is all right here, baby! Victor’s Kitchen’s liu sha bao is a legend.

Victor’s King Prawn Dumplings are also another recommendation from us; you’d be drawn in immediately by how fresh and succulent the prawns are.
Anyone up for some Teochew-styled dim sum? Victor’s Kitchen liu sha bao is amazing, but Swatow Seafood Restaurant puts a local spin on the dish by incorporating pandan, resulting in the bun being light green in colour. Did we mention the all-time favourite Paper-wrapped Chicken Wings are available here too? All moist and thoroughly well-seasoned. We hear your stomach rumbling!

Once you’ve experienced them, you’d understand why they’re very popular too.

Looking for dim sum that doesn’t fit the norm? Wan Dou Sek is one such place. The offerings here are daring and unusual. Where else can you find buns that are stuffed with seasoned pork belly? Or mantou that’s served with chili crab sauce? Wan Dou Sek’s offerings are simply thrilling. Some dishes are even creatively given Japanese, Korean and Thai twists. Not trying everything here would be a huge regret!
Seeing as it’s operated by the same corporation that handles Paradise Dynasty, it goes without saying that Din Tai Fung serves quality dim sum at affordable prices.
