(NEW) Dim Sum Haus: An Alternative to Swee Choon?


Dim Sum Haus...

The first thing that comes into my mind when I think about Dim Sum in Singapore is Swee Choon. Swee Choon is one of my frequent supper places even up till today and it is also one place that I’ll introduce to my overseas friends. They are always so crowded at night (especially Thursday – Sunday night) and you have to wait about 20 minutes for a table. Just a few streets down Swee Choon lies a not-so widely known Dim Sum restaurant – Dim Sum Haus which might be the perfect substitute to your favourite Swee Choon. Situated at 57 Jalan Besar (opposite Sim Lim Tower), Dim Sum Haus offers an extensive range of freshly made Dim Sum at an affordable price (prices are relatively similar to Swee Choon). So, the next time you’re looking for a supper place or somewhere to satisfy your Dim Sum cravings, you need to check out Dim Sum Haus! Also, let me know if it’s an alternative to Swee Choon!

Since the Dim Sum is freshly made with any order, you need to wait for a while before the Dim Sum are served. Personally, one big difference about Dim Sum Haus and Swee Choon is that Dim Sum Haus seems to be much cleaner. In frame, Steamed Shrimp Dumpling (Har Gau) - $4.20, Steamed Pork & Shrimp Dumpling (Siew Mai) - $3.90, Steamed Charcoal Chicken & Shrimp Dumpling (Hak Kam Kai Siew Mai) - $4.00, Honey BBQ Pork Bun - $3.50, Pan Fried Carrot Cake with Chinese Sausage - $3.20, Baked Salted Egg Custard Bun - $4.80, Mee Sua Kueh and Porridge.

Har Gau // $4.20
Hidden within the soft and fine dumpling skin lies a big, fat and juicy prawn. I was impressed with the texture of the skin – not too soft or too tough.

Siew Mai // $3.90
The Siew Mai was really nice with generous fillings and it was relatively flavourful. Dip it into the chilli sauce for maximum pleasure. The chilli sauce at Dim Sum Haus was the salty type. 

Hak Kam Kai Siew Mai // $4
As compared to the normal Siew Mai, this version was a bit more flavourful and aromatic. I think I can eat 4 on my own.

Fried Fresh Shrimp Spring Roll // $3.80
The skin was really crispy and they were really generous with the serving (one huge shrimp). This was very addictive!

Japanese Dumpling // $4.60
This was really delicious, especially the sour-spicy sauce which goes very well with the dumpling. 

Steamed Malay Sponge Cake // $3.20
The sponge cake was soft and moist. Also, it wasn’t overly sweet. 

Char Siew Bun // $3.50
The pork was well-marinated, flavourful, not too sweet and with a subtle BBQ flavour. Bun was soft and moist as well. Best to have this when it is piping hot! 

Baked Salted Egg Custard Bun // $4.80
Saving the best for the last. The Salted Egg Custard Bun was my favourite Dim Sum at Dim Sum Haus. Crust was not too flaky and it paired very well with the rich and aromatic Salted Egg Sauce which was also not too sweet. Damn addictive! Highly recommended!
