    1 / 8 1. Peach Blossoms

    Classics like Deep-fried Beancurd Skin Roll with Prawn, Steamed Honey Glazed Pork Bun and more grace the menu together with more unique choices like Crispy Scallop Coated Filo String. The value-for-money dim sun buffet served on trolleys being wheeled around, just like the old times even includes options like Baked Lobster with Cheese.

    When this Michelin-starred Hong Kong establishment first graced Singapore’s shores, patrons braved the snaking queues for hours for the Crispy BBQ Pork Bun in particular. Now with 8 locations islandwide, you get amazing dim sun sans the waiting time. The outlet at Aperia Mall is open till 3am.

  • 3. Hua Ting
    3 / 8 3. Hua Ting

    You’ll probably have little luck getting a table without a reservation for lunch here and surely that’s testament to how amazing the food is. Its menu star is a winner packed in a field of champions: the Baked Chicken and Mango Tart, a sweet-savoury delight encased on light, butter pastry.

  • 4. East Ocean Teochew Restaurant
    4 / 8 4. East Ocean Teochew Restaurant

    Comforting dim sun favourites come in steamed, pan-fried, deep-fried varieties and more. Our reco: the steamed BBQ pork buns trump the baked ones. For sweet options, the baked mini egg tarts take the cake.

  • 5. Yum Cha
    5 / 8 5. Yum Cha

    Bustling with Singaporean families speaking in dialect, Yum Cha is busy – rowdy even – but the charm of this restaurant lies in this very authenticity. Must-tries include Siew Mai and Baked Egg Tarts as well as their restaurant specialties like the Rainbow Seafood Dumpling.

  • 6. Mitzo
    6 / 8 6. Mitzo

    If you can ever describe a restaurant and its food as sexy, that’s what Mitzo is. Mitzo reinvents Cantonese fare with flavours simultaneously familiar and fresh, blowing even the Asians away. A must-try: their specialty char siew, caramelised to sweet-savoury perfection.

  • 7. Min Jiang
    7 / 8 7. Min Jiang

    The dim sum is delightfully refined, possibly even a bit too clean for those after the original, busy Hong Kong teahouse experience. But if luxe is your thing then it’s worth putting all your eggs in Min Jiang’s dim sum basket. For a change of setting, get a table outdoors on the verandah by the pool.

  • 8. Paradise Dynasty
    8 / 8 8. Paradise Dynasty

    This restaurant’s crowning glory: dramatically colourful xiao long bao of eight different flavours, from foie gras to garlic to cheese. Fact: the skin of the dumplings are so coloured from natural ingredients like carrot and spinach.
