When I was younger, I wasn’t so much of a Dim Sum fan but as I age, I sense the thrill of having served basket after baskets of dim sum 😛
Unfortunately, I did not have the chance to try out the highly raved or overly-crazed Tim Ho Wan. Or some might say, it’s overrated.
Swee Choon and 126 is kinda inconvenient if you do not drive as the nearest mrt requires some walking-distance.
Marina Link is a little confusing to access but if you are coming down from City Hall mrt, walk through City Link all the way towards Suntec City, just before the escalators leading to Suntec, Marina Link would be on your right. On the left would be Esplanade Exchange. From afar, you can see the ‘Dim Dim’ signage.
Here is a screen shot of the map directory for your easy reference 🙂
We managed to try 7 signature dishes of Dim Dim :
Hong Kong Milk Tea (left) : S$2.60
Yuan Yang (right) : S$$2.80
I tried the Milk Tea and it was neither too sweet or bland. The sugar level is just nice and it wasn’t very milky either.
Cuttlefish and Peanut Congee – S$5.00 :
Congee was served hot, I added a little soya sauce as I prefer it to taste a little saltier.
Steamed Custard Bun – S$4.20 :
These buns were served piping hot, so much so that the custard inside came oozing out once you try to peel them bit by bit to savour. The custard was not too salty and extremelt savoury!
Piping hot custard oozing out….hmmmmm
Baked BBQ Honey Pork Bun Coated with Crispy Butter – S$4.20 :
Buns were baked to slightly golden brown. and the honey pork fillings were very tasty and addictive, which were generously filled.
Tasty pork fillings :
Steam Prawn Dumping “Ha Kau” – S$4.20 :
Ha Kau’s skin is neither too thick or thin. I totally loathe those with super thick skins that are difficult to chew on! Shrimps were fresh, plump and juicy! The perfect skin all depends on the skills of the Chef and I must say that Dim Dim has perfected it! 🙂
Steamed Cheong-fun with Chinese Dough Fritters – S$3.60 :
Now, this was my first experience trying such innovative dish. The usual “Chee Cheong Fun” dish is normally filled with “Char Siew” (Pork), prawns etc and so far, I’ve not come across Chee Cheong Fun stuffed with crispy dough fritters although this dish is one of the traditional Dim Sum delights!
What’s more, despite being a steamed dish, the dough fritters undoubtedly remain crispy!
This “Chee Cheong Fun” is served alongside with Dim Dim’s very own special peanut and seafood sauce for that extra oomph!
Deep-fried Shrimp in Beancurd Skin Roll – S$4.60 :
This must be the crispiest dish of all and you would know it once you sink your teeth into them! Fried to golden brown, it’s not wonder why it’s the perfect dish for deep-fried food lovers!
Mini Egg Tarts – S$3.60 :
