Swee Choon Tim Sum 瑞春点心 @Jalan Besar

Popular place for dim sum

The restaurant opened swiftly at 6pm and many tables were already filled! But the restaurant is huge and we got a table and seats at a corner of the air-con room.

There are also seats that do not have air-con and there’s also a long queue for takeaways. We were just glad we were here when they opened or we might have to have a long wait too!

The internal decoration is typical Chinese-style with Chinese paintings lining the walls. To order, we just need to tick our selections on the menu and a waitress will put in our order to the kitchen.

What we liked about Swee Choon is they put the number of pieces per serving so we know exactly what (and how much) we are getting. Neat! 🙂

We ordered only the more popular ones, and also because we were quite full from the whole day of cafe-hopping:

  • Siew Mai 烧卖 – the usual suspect but we liked that there’s only 2 pieces per serving (and not the usual 4)!
  • Har Kow 虾饺 – the other pair of the usual suspect and comes in twos too!
  • Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun 奶黄流沙包 – the oozing golden goodness, but it was too sweet for my liking
  • Beancurd Chicken Roll 鲜虾腐皮卷 – freshly steamed and very filling
  • Prawn and Banana Fritter 香蕉炸虾筒 – quite a good filling of ingredients and the skin was not too jelut
  • Swee Choon Mee-Suah Kueh 瑞春面线粿 – the specialty of Swee Choon, mouthful of mee suah goodness!
  • Shanghai Xiao Long Pau 上海小笼包 – didn’t experience lots of soup in the XLB
  • Layer Pancake with Egg and Meat Floss 千層饼 – another specialty which blends all ingredient very well

We were so full after the meal! Will definitely come back for more!
