We were checking out our Instagram feed when something caught our eye, and we found that it was near where we were! Without further ado, we went to check it out!
LoYe Dim Sum is a modern fusion restaurant that gives a twist to old-school dim sum delights to transform them into Chinese fusion delicacies!
We were initially seated at a smaller table for 2, but once a bigger table was available, we were given the option to shift 🙂
We decided to go with a few interesting dim sum items, since we were still rather full from the entire day of eating…
We had wanted to try the polo bun with butter and milk tea here, but alas, by 6pm, the polo buns were already sold out. Since the minimum order was a drink per person, we decided on:
- 原裝凍奶茶 Iced Milk Tea (HK$20): This was served cold without ice, and it was smooth and strong and not overly sweet. Since there were no ice cubes, the tea remained flavourful throughout. A really lovely cup of milk tea!
- 熱檸啡 Hot Black Coffee with Lemon (HKD$20): Hubby did not add any sugar to his drink, so it was a very interesting blend that was aromatic, bitter and sour.
Being near to closing time, it was relatively quiet and we had a relaxing time chilling in the little bench seats with our drinks, in this little quaint place.

This was a really tiny restaurant that could probably sit about 40 customers, so it was no surprise that the queue outside was really quite long. Perhaps it was also not a surprise that there were many Singaporeans in the queue, either waiting for seats or taking out… haha!
We got ourselves a queue ticket just before 2pm, and figured that we should probably grab a bite elsewhere first, before coming back to wait for our turn. And we remembered seeing 檀島咖啡餅店 Honolulu Coffee Shop on our way walking here… 🙂
We managed to enter the restaurant at 3:10pm, and that was because quite a few others who decided not to wait after all.
After getting a queue number at 甘牌燒鵝 Kam’s Roast Goose, we crossed the road to 檀島咖啡餅店 Honolulu Coffee Shop for a quick lunch first. At 2pm, it was fairly crowded, but there were still seats available. Once settled down, we opted to share a main and of course, the famous egg tart.
