I'm not an expert in this kind of restaurants but I must confess that the ratio quality vs price is good, basically, two people can try almost all kind of foods for no more than 20$ per person ..... more over the service is quick and efficient... continue reading

Taking about having Dim Sum for dinner or supper.Other then Dim Sum at 126 Eating House at Geylang, Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant will always be in the Dim Sum Supper List.After hearing and reading a lot of rave reviews from my friends and fellow bloggers. I brought my boyfriend there for dinner.Located at the heart of Jalan Besar, in the district of Little India, Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant had always been popular among Singaporeans and tourists. Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant opened for business in 1962 and had been around for more then 50 years.Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant served a combination of both Hong Kong and ShangHai Dim Sum. They provides both air- conditioned as well as alfresco dining in the back alley.If you are want to dine in the air conditioned part of the restaurant, I will advise you to be there early especially for dinner time to beat the queue.If you are hungry when you reached the restaurant like me, you can skip the queue by choosing to sit at the non air-conditioned part of the restaurant or the alfresco dining.Personally, I prefer the alfresco dining in back alley even though the lighting was quite bad for photo taking. I like the feeling that you are not dinning in the modern Singapore, it kind of bring you back in time when people dine at the road side.Fried Mee SuaThis is one of Swee Choon's Signature dish, Fried Mee Sua. This plate of Fried Mee Sua may look easy to cook, however it requires a lot of skills. Normally, Mee Sua has this very soft texture and easily broken. The chef did a pretty good job in frying this plate of Mee Sua as the each strain of noodle is so springy and fragrant. The shredded cabbages and bean sprouts added crunch to the noodle. The most critical part that the chef had passed was that the plate of Mee Sua is not oily at all. I had also been not a lover toward carbohydrate, but this time round I really cannot stop eating the Fried Mee Sua.Mee Sua KuehOther Mee Sua dishes by Swee Choon and also their Signature dish. However, this time round, I am not very impress with the Mee Sua Kueh. The Mee Sua Kueh is a creative version of carrot cake. The top layer is Pan Fried Crispy Mee Sua and the bottom layer is soft Mee Sua with Kueh. I feel that the Mee Sua Kueh was quite greasy. Not sure isn't that I had left it on the table for quite a while. My boyfriend did not really like it too. We both find the texture is too soft.Find out more details: http://www.elgenahearts.com/scrumptious-dinner-at-swee-choon-dim-sum-restaurant/ continue reading

Swee Choon Dim Sum Restaurant in operation for more than 50 years is a well-known dim sum restaurant which is extremely popular among Singaporeans and tourist. It has been featured on many newspapers, magazines as well as food shows. Unlike most other dim sum restaurants, Swee Choon's operating hours are from 6pm to 6am catering ensuring that Singaporeans have an extra option for supper and are well-fed throughout the night. Lucky for us, now we can all have dim sum even at midnight or in the wee hours of the morning! Swee Choon located at Jalan Besar opposite Berseh Food Centre is so popular that it occupy 5 units of shophouses along this stretch of road. It is in the between both Farrer Park and Lavendar MRT stations, a good 10 to 15 minutes walk away from either stations.Occupying 5 units, Swee Choon offers both alfresco dining and air-conditioned (indoor) dining. In addition, it has a unit which cater only to walk-in customers who order takeaways. As we already knew that there would be a long queue if we arrived late, we made it a point to arrive at 630pm on a Friday for dinner. Luckily for us, we got the last available table at the indoor (air-conditioned) dining area. MenuMenuMenuThe menu with the prices. As you can see, Swee Choon offers a wide variety of Hong Kong and Shanghai dim sum, and local zi char dishes. Chrysantheum Tea $1.30 per paxFor drinks, we ordered their Chrysantheum Tea which cost $1.30 per pax. It was served in a metal pot and is refillable. They mixed the tea bags themselves. The Chrysantheum Tea was quite good as it was light, refreshing, fragrant and help to wash down the grease. Century Egg Porridge $2.50The Century Egg Porridge $2.50 was served in a small bowl. It was decent, but not the best. There were chunks of century egg and chicken meat in it. Mee Suah Kueh $2Swee Choon's signature Mee Suah Kueh $2; deep-fried vermicelli cake (mee sua) which can only be found at Swee Choon. Show this kueh to anyone and they would associate it with Swee Choon. Almost every table ordered this. I thought that this was unique and not bad. But I will not rate it as a die die must try as the standard seemed to be inconsistent and it was a little too greasy. One of the kueh could have been fried a little longer. The texture was unique. Crisp, rough texture on the outside while the interior was moist. Fried Golden Doufu (Tofu) $3.50This Fried Golden Doufu (Tofu) $3.50 was surprisingly good. Despite the simplicity, it was well executed. The tofu was fried till it was crispy on the outside. The addition of the pork floss at the top was the icing on the cake.Carrot Cake $2The Carrot Cake $2 was not bad too. There were a good mix of radish, dried shrimps and chinese sauages in it. It was also a little too greasy. Pan Fried Pork Dumpling $4The Pan Fried Pork Dumpling $4 was pan fried till it was so crispy. In addition, they were so generous fillings. Dipping it into the vinegar along with slices of ginger made this just so delectable. Beancurd Prawn Roll $2.80The Beancurd Prawn Roll $2.80 with minced meat and prawns in it was ordinary.Steamed Pork Ribs $2.50The Steamed Pork Ribs $2.50 was a let down. The part of the pork served was not pork rib and it was either too fatty or was all bones.Overall, Swee Choon Dim Sum Restaurant is worth a try. There were hits and misses in the dishes we ordered. Service wise, despite the restaurant being full, the staff were efficient. It was easy getting the attention of the staff. Do note that this restaurant only accepts cash or nets. They do not accept credit card. Also, they do not take any reservation. As we left Swee Choon Dim Sum Restaurant at close to 8pm, we saw a queue! It was very thoughtful of the restaurant owner to provide chairs outside. If you are planning to visit this restaurant during dinner time, do remember to come early. http://foodiefc.blogspot.sg/2014/01/swee-choon-dim-sum-restaurant-jalan.html continue reading

fried prawn dumpling $4.20: skin tasted a little floury but fillings were fresh. mee sua cake $2.20: this was something different from the usual dim sum items and I felt that it was quite a special dish. The mee sua itself tasted bland but the crispy exterior made up for it. dan dan la mian $5: the gravy was really good and went really well with the la mian.sichuan chilli oil wanton $4.30: one of my favourites there.. the sichuan chilli oil had a mixture of sour and spicy flavours and the wantons were good too.egg tart $3: the egg tart was smooth but it did not stand out.Waiting time was about 20 minutes for peak hour but they serve the food rather fast. continue reading

Kids were out with their friends, so wife & I went looking for food along Jalan Besar straight after shopping at Mustafa. A short walk along Syed Alwi Road & we ended up at the end of a rather long queue at the Swee Choon Dim Sum Restaurant!It's amazing that even close to 11pm at night, we were surrounded by twilight foodie denizens!Pictured here is our main course; the handmade Wanton Noodles in Chilli Oil.Those pale-yellow (almost beige) noodles were turgid & didn't clump together. They also didn't have any of that 'Kee-like' bittery taste reminiscent of our usually deeper yellow noodles found elsewhere!Oh Yes! Those Huge Wantons filled with mouthfuls of minced meat & chopped chives, married with generous slices of spring onions, chilli & diced fried garlic mixed into the slightly spicy & tangy black vinegar sauce made for a most delightful supper treat! continue reading
