Busy from open to close
It’s an early Sunday and we were due for an Escape Game at Prinsep Street so we came earlier for a dim sum brunch!
Victor’s Kitchen has been in business for a long while and has been on many Must-Eat list also for a long while. It’s tugged in a little corner of Sunshine Plaza, and the stall floor space is not too large either. We counted close to 8 tables arranged in a school tuck shop style and diners are expected to share table (搭檯) like in Hong Kong.
There was already a queue formed when we reached around 10:15am (they open at 10:30am). The auntie let us in 5mins earlier but did not switch on the lights. She also cautioned some diners to lower their volume. Not sure if she broke any ‘rules’ by letting the diners into the stall early.

New branch at Toa Payoh
Simple decor but great food
It’s Tim Ho Wan @Toa Payoh this time! In case you didn’t know, Tim Ho Wan is Hong Kong’s most famous dim sum restaurant because it is one of the cheapest One-Star Michelin restaurant in the world!
We discovered that it was finally opened to public yesterday (8 Sep 2013), so we decided to just pop over to see what’s the crowd like! The queue was not too bad, considering we got seats within 30min, close to 8pm. That was also because there were only 2 of us; bigger groups had to wait longer for a bigger empty table. They also placed stools outside the restaurant so we can just sit, chat and wait.
