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 Sua
This 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 Kueh
Other 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.
