A popular supper dim sum place that opens everyday at 3am, we were very keen to try out the specialty 流沙飽 Custard Bun here!
We arrived at 4am, and there was only 1 available table by the entrance. The lady allowed us to change seats once another table was available, and we ended up having a good view of the kitchen!
We started by ordering 普洱 Pu-er (HK$7 per pax), our default choice.
Shortly after, we had some awesome huge 時菜四寶紮 Cabbage Rolls that were just steamed. There were so many ingredients wrapped within the cabbage!
Then, we just hung around sipping our tea, till the next item that caught our eyes – 山竹牛肉球 Beef Balls. We liked the texture and flavour 🙂
We waited for a good 1 hour before they started making the 流沙飽 Custard Buns. Finally, at 5:15am, a fresh batch of custard buns appeared! We were glad we waited for these awesome sweet and salty buns with flowy salted egg goodness!
Prices of the dim sum that we had ranged from 小點 (HK$17), 中點 (HK$18), to 大點 (HK$19), making this a really affordable meal!

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.
